News Reel ~ Burned Dogs Available for Adoption

Back in March 2010, two dogs were set on fire by their owner. 36 year-old Katherine Brotherton faces two felony counts of animal cruelty. Investigators said she doused her family’s two pet dogs with gasoline and set them on fire. Brotherton allegedly claimed the dogs bit her and setting them on fire was the only reasonable thing to do. May Brotherton says her daughter has exhibited schizophrenic behavior in the past month (of March) ... and that she refuses to take her medication.




Sick sick sick. You can't tell me she's not spun. She's not an Asshat ... she's a genuine, bonified CRAZY-MOFO



While there is little help for Brotherton (as an "adult" over the age of majority, it is within her rights to refuse treatment), there is help available for the two dogs. More than 8 months later, they can finally find a new [safe] home.




The Burned dogs [are] healthy again; up for adoption in Johnson County. Jake, a black Labrador mix, and Boomer, a blue heeler, both suffered extensive burns when their owner allegedly set them on fire as a form of punishment.

These poor dogs. There are no words, really, to sum up the horrors they have experienced. I hope they find wonderful, warm, and understanding homes as soon as possible. The world can be a terrifying place.

People can be inhumane when they are evil or in this case, certifiably mentally ill. This is what bothers me,though - she can not take her meds but be a menace to other sentient beings like these dogs, and this is acceptable? Some loophole.

Yes, please, where is the law that says you cannot own an animal if you are violently insane?

Or, how about just plain stupid, and can't remember that you even own an animal...

sorry for shrieking. I just can't handle this planet today.
The sweet faces of those dogs.. How could anyone....
