The Charleston Animal Society wants to find the person who did this to Caitlyn.

The 15-month-old dog's muzzle was taped shut with electrical tape this week and now the pooch may lose her tongue because the incident affected blood flow to the area, WLTX reports.

The society is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible.

Caitlyn is a stray in a neighborhood in North Charleston and on Monday, area residents saw her and recalled her looking healthy, the report said. But Wednesday, she was found on the doorstep of a home with the tape around her face.

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Coach, a beagle mix currently living at Kindness Ranch Animal Sanctuary in Hartville, Wyoming.

Coach came to the Kindness Ranch in August of last year from a research facility on the East Coast where he was used in dog food testing.

"All of our animals come from research facilities, at different ages and with different levels of socialization, but Coach was a friendly, happy-go-lucky dog right from the start," says companion animal manager Stephanie Bilbro. "Since arriving at the ranch, Coach has appointed himself the official greeter and makes sure nobody gets in the door without the proper 'hello' howl."

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Elvis, an adorable orange tabby who is currently being cared for by Homes for Orphaned Pets Exist (HOPE) in Wilton, New York.

One-year-old Elvis had a rough start in life. He came to HOPE at just 4-months-old after he was abandoned by his first owner. The heartless owner left only a big bag of dry food for the cat for weeks at a time and in turn Elvis had to fend for himself in desperate conditions.

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Gabby, a beautiful cat who is currently being cared for by Homes for Orphaned Pets Exist (a.k.a. HOPE) in Wilton, New York.

What's special about 2-year-old Gabby? Everything! First of all, she's a fan of dogs, especially her foster buddy Ted, whom she's often found hanging out with. Second, she's a total sweetheart. She enjoys a good scratch and spending time with people, but she's also independent and doesn't need constant attention. At night, she'll seek out snuggles from you and in the morning she'll happily stare you down for a very important gift: treats!

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Caesar, a handsome pit bull mix currently being cared for by the Eleventh Hour Rescue of Rockaway, New Jersey.

Four years ago, Caesar was found as a stray and adopted into a loving home – but sadly, his forever was recently cut short. His owners are now moving and can't take their pup with them, so they returned him to the Eleventh Hour Rescue. The transition hasn't been easy: Caesar is sad, missing his owners and clearly longing for a loving place to call home.
