$1,000 Reward Offered for Information


$1,000 reward offered for information leading to arrest and felony conviction.


Charleston Animal Society is treating a severely burned dog found in North Charleston on Sunday. The black staffie-mix has been nicknamed “Harvey” because he was found on Harvey Avenue near I-26 and Azalea Avenue.

“We are providing this animal treatment to reduce his pain and to help his healing,” said Charleston Animal Society Associate Director of Veterinary Care Dr. Leigh Jamison. “His prognosis right now is guarded.” Harvey is receiving pain medicine, wound care and I-V fluids. He was picked up by North Charleston Animal Control Officers and brought to Charleston Animal Society March 8th.

Dog’s Identity is a Mystery

The origins of Harvey’s burns are suspicious and our animal cruelty expert cannot rule out foul play.

 A $1,000 reward is being offered by Charleston Animal Society for information that leads to the arrest and felony conviction of those responsible for Harvey’s condition.

 We are providing photos and video in the hopes Harvey can be identified. If you know who this dog is, please let Charleston Animal Society know.

“One of our core principles is to fight cruelty wherever it exists, and part of that is finding out how dogs and cats that come in injured like this one – got into that condition in the first place,” said Charleston Animal Society Chief Strategy Officer Aldwin Roman, CAWA. “We are hoping someone steps forward and lets us know who this dog is so we can do what’s best for him.”

We cannot treat animals like Harvey without your support of Toby’s Fund, Charleston Animal Society’s medical fund. Go to CharlestonAnimalSociety.org/tobys-fund to give now.
