A dog, later named Smokey, was found at the end of March, tied to a tree at a homeless camp in West Palm Beach, Florida. He had severe burns all over his body, which looked extremely painful, and the poor pup was visibly distressed.

Rescuers cut the chain that bound him to the tree, and removed him from the brushfire area. They then rushed him to Peggy Adams Animal Rescue, where they examined him and determined that he’d need extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation.


He went to stay at Jupiter Pet Emergency & Specialty Center, where he received multiple blood transfusions, daily baths and bandage changes, and treatments in the hyperbaric chamber to help reduce swelling and pain from the burns.


The staff was very gentle with Smokey and showered him with love. He received his own soft bed to recover on, along with toys and lots of attention.
