RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Richmond Animal Care and Control announced that ‘Tommie,’ the pit bull that was set on fire and abandoned in a Richmond park earlier this week, has passed away Friday morning.
Richmond Animal Care and Control made the announcement on Facebook:
“I’m so very sorry to say that Tommie just passed away. He had just finished having his bandages changed and stopped breathing; his body simply gave out. Tommie was pain free and surrounded by people that loved him when he passed,” the post read.
A reward fund has also been started that will be offered to anyone with information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person who did this. RACC said Wednesday afternoon the reward fund had swelled to $10,000.
