May 10, 2000|By SUN STAFF WRITER

The Maryland Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has received $2,500 in donations for a dog that was severely injured after being set on fire during the weekend, officials said yesterday.

The largest donation was $500, said Aileen Gabbey, the society's executive director.

The dog, a mixed breed that is about a year old, suffered burns over 50 percent of its body. The animal, whose condition has stabilized, is being treated at the Animal Emergency Center in Timonium. The SPCA has been paying medical expenses.

The dog was found early Sunday near Glyndon Elementary School in northwest Baltimore County. It was not wearing identification.

Chuch Snee, who said he found the dog, said it smelled of lighter fluid. Witnesses said they saw two men fleeing the area.

Officials have said Snee will be allowed to adopt the dog if owners don't claim it.
