Campbell, cat set on fire, finds forever home with Philly firefighter
The Pennsylvania SPCA announced that Campbell will be adopted by Lieutenant Stephen Paslawski, a 14-year-veteran firefighter currently stationed with Engine Co. 45 in Philly’s Strawberry Mansion section.
Paslawski was one of the first to inquire about adopting Campbell. They knew he was the right choice to help Campbell move on from the horrific abuse he suffered
“When I saw the story about Campbell, I was disgusted that anyone could do this to any animal. I had recently put another cat I had down due to a large tumor, and with me being a firefighter, Campbell being burned, and the loss of my other cat, it just seemed like a perfect fit.
Our first meeting was amazing. After a few minutes of petting him in the cage, he put his paws up on me and climbed onto my shoulder as if to say, I choose you. I knew right then it was meant to be. He’ll have a loving home for the rest of his life.”
~ Stephen Paslawski
Campbell will stay in the PSPCA hospital for a few more weeks while his severe burns continue to heal. Once cleared to leave, Campbell will go home with Lt. Paslawski and his other cat, Tink.
Tyrique Hall and Jose Sanchez were charged with criminal conspiracy, possession of an instrument of crime, and cruelty to animals and each face up to ten years in jail.
Have a wonderful life, Campbell! We can’t take away the pain he suffered but thanks to Lt. Paslawski, he will have his happily ever after.
