Justin Burned Kitten Grows Stronger

A tiny kitten found with serious burns two and a half weeks ago is growing ever stronger as he continues to make a good recovery.

Justin was found severely burned on Thursday, April 26. The tiny, intentionally injured then-5 week old baby was found in the Kensington section of North Philadelphia by a good Samaritan. Justin had been doused with an accelerant and lit afire.

The Animal Alliance of New Jersey  is caring for Justin, and  Crown Veterinary Specialists, is providing his medical care. The Pennsylvania SPCA is looking for whoever burned the kitten, and the HSUS has offered a substantial reward.

Justin’s caregivers at the rescue and the vet are pleased with his progress. He is doing well after a debride procedure last week.

In this video report from last Thursday, Dr. Wendy Ross of Crown Veterinary Specialists talks about Justin, his treatment and the good progress he is making. She also gives her thoughts on Justin’s and other abusers, and the importance of adopting not just the famous pets like Justin, but the many others
