CHICAGO — An animal shelter is asking for help to save a kitten that was set on fire and badly injured.
The kitten was set on fire and later brought to Felines and Canines. He is in intensive care, according to a Facebook post by the shelter, and has a long road to recovery. His front legs might need to be removed and his belly was severely burned.
"He is eating and showing a strong will to live (or else we would have humanely and lovingly let him go immediately), but his needs are unbelievably extensive," the group said on Facebook.
The group needs donations to care for the kitten and other rescue animals, according to its Facebook post, but donations have been at an all-time low during the spring and summer. You can donate to the organization online.
The kitten will be on pain medication and will have 24-hour care until he "is strong enough to start the recovery process," the group said.
Updates about the kitten will be posted to the organization's Facebook page in the coming days.
