Donations Needed for Dog Injured in Fall - Collar Embedded in His Neck

I am sharing from my friends at Willy's Happy Endings Animal Shelter

Willy's Happy Endings Animal Shelter: 
We are currently at the vet with one of the worst embedded collar cases we have ever seen. This boy desperately needed our help after he fell from the bed of a truck and good Samaritans called the sheriff's dept.

He is heartworm positive, running a high fever, emaciated to the point of muscle atrophy, and has skin infections to boot.

We are dedicated to saving this boys life, but we need your help!

Please consider calling a donation in to the WHE account at North Stewart Vet for the embedded collar chow right away! 931-232-9900 you can also send a paypal to or mail to W.H.E 2073 Wilma Rudolph Blvd. Clarksville TN 37040

Can't donate? You and/or your children can send 'get well' or 'good luck' cards and drawings to any of our animals and we will read them to them and hang them in their kennel!!

This is his story:


On the morning of 10/17/2014 a Grey/Silver Ford Ranger drove past the Garden Place on Woodlawn Rd. This dog jumped or fell out of the bed of the truck and good Samaritans rushed to help him. The women say the man driving was a very large African American man and that he turned around to come back for the dog but did not stop when he saw them with him.

Montgomery County Sheriff's Dept. and Animal Control were on scene and took reports and Willy's Happy Endings was called to provide treatment and safe harbor for the dog.
If you have any information on who this man may be please contact W.H.E. #931-217-4495.

Phoenix has suffered at the end of a chain, likely for his whole life. His choke-chain collar was double looped and likely put on him as a puppy. As he grew, it cut into his neck slowly causing extreme and ever present pain and damage to deep tissue. He now has a systemic infection, is emaciated, heartworm positive, and has road rash to boot. The person who caused this suffering must be found and punished. WHE will not stop fighting! Together, we can make sure Phoenix rises from the ashes of his old life and that Justice is done to the man responsible on his behalf.
