An investigation is underway after a dog was set on fire while tied to a pole in Abner Clay Park Sunday evening.

The male pit bull with a camo collar was covered in accelerant and intentionally set on fire according to Richmond Animal Care and Control (RACC).

The shelter says witnesses saw an adult man wearing multiple layers of pants run from the scene.

The dog, now named Tommie, is being treated for burns to over 40% of his body at Virginia Veterinary Centers. The shelter hopes that they will be able to save him.

“I have to say that we don’t get rattled by much at RACC and have witnessed ugly cases but this one makes us want to just sit on the floor and cry,” RACC wrote on Facebook.

Pawsitive Update On Tommie

Richmond Animal Care and Control wrote on Facebook that Tommie actually got up and walked away from his bed.

"Tommie just decided he was done laying down," the shelter said. "Fingers crossed for this forward momentum to continue. We are not out the danger zone yet, but for today, we win!"

Staff from VCU's burn unit volunteered and set up a rotating schedule to assist Tommie every day with expert wound care. First responders that saved him also stopped by the shelter Wednesday to share their love.

They said Tommie even wagged his tail when the heroes stopped by. The shelter said they also passed out flyers in hopes of finding the suspect who did this to Tommie.
