    Default Indiana woman charged with setting dogs on fire, adoption offers pour in

    Adoption offers and donations have been pouring in for two dogs police said were lit on fire by their owner.
    Kathrine Brotherton, 35, told police that she wanted to kill her 5-year-old dog and 6-month-old puppy in the most humane way possible after they bit her hand, investigators told 6News' Jennifer Carmack.
    According to the probable cause affidavit, Brotherton put the dogs in a 55-gallon drum, covered them with gasoline and then set them on fire.

    The puppy, named Jake, was burned over 85 percent of his body, while 5-year-old Boomer was also burned.
    "Jake's coming along," said Johnson County Animal Control Director Michael Delp, who called the case the worst he'd ever seen. "He's getting stronger each day. He is eating well, and that's a good sign."
    The Johnson County Animal Shelter has been flooded with more than 400 calls from people hoping to adopt the dogs, while others have stopped by to contribute to their care.

    "I hope this helps. It's not a lot, but I hope it helps," said a woman who wrote a check for $50.
    "I'm angry and I'm upset," said John Morton, who also gave to the shelter.
    Delp said the donations will go a long way to help Jake and Boomer, along with the other animals at the shelter.
    "It's just been overwhelming, very gratifying," he said. "They all need homes and they all need love. If you're looking for a companion animal, we can set you up."
    Delp said Boomer and Jake are expected to make full recoveries, and will eventually be adopted.
    Brotherton was preliminarily charged with felony animal cruelty and was being held at the Johnson County Jail.
    Police said there were no visible bite marks on her hands, and that it appeared the puppy had also been abused before the fire.

    Really they need to kill these fuckers. Seriously. They should make an arena gladiator style and make it Pay Per View.

    Pedophiles, rapists and animal abusers would have to fight to the death for life in prison.

    This woman should never be out again. She's a total nut if that's the way she thinks is the most "humane" way to discipline or kill her dog!
