The Michigan Humane Society is offering a reward after three dogs were killed in a house fire that was intentionally set by a suspect who also stole several items from the home.

The MHS is offering a $2,500 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible.

"This crime is despicable on many levels," Matthew Pepper, President and CEO of the Michigan Humane Society, said in a news release. "Not only was a family robbed of their belongings and displaced by a fire, they have to suffer the loss of their three beloved dogs. The dogs were trapped with no way to escape and suffered greatly before ultimately perishing."

FOX 2 received photos of the dogs, which we're told were named Bruno, Bella and Blue.

The Michigan Humane Society says the burglary and arson happened at a home in the 38000 block of Warren on Tuesday, March 29.

If you have any information on what happened, you're asked to contact the Westland Fire Marshall at (734) 467-3260.

If you would like to make a donation to their family, you can do so via their GoFundMe account.
