Rogers was almost decapitated from the worst embedded color case doctors have seen.
Friends I know this is graphic but Rogers needs your help! He has been through unimaginably abuse and neglect at the hands of evil. Rogers neck has been sliced off so deeply by an embedded collar that it has ripped away at the flesh so severely that Rogers head is almost decapitated from his body. This is the worst embedded collar we have ever experienced at our rescue to date! You can help save his life one shirt, hoodie or bracelet at a time!
Most disturbing is that Roger was had an owner. This act was intentional. The owner watched day after day as the collar around Rogers neck got tighter and tighter, choking him to near death. By the grace of God, animal control was informed of the cruelty being inflicted upon Rogers and removed Rogers and his mother from the property.
Rescue Dogs Rock has also rescued his Mom from the same property. Animal Cruelty Charges are being filed against the owner by the county. We are just as angry as you are but we must focus now on saving Mr Rogers life. Right now Rogers has been transported from the shelter to RDR’s Vet Partner for emergency surgery. Rogers needs your support. His condition is critical. Believe it or not but he is only 8 months old! His road to recovery will take months but with your help I know he can survive this.

UPDATE 7-11-17: We apologize for the delay on Roger updates! Roger, however, the great news is that he's alive and recovering. He's moving to Rescue Dogs Rocks primary vet tomorrow where they will be able to get updated photos.
UPDATE 7-14-17: RDR's Vet Partner just completed a 2 and a half hour surgery on Rogers neck that required a total of 80 stitches, 40 on the outside and 40 on the inside of the neck with 4 separate layers of tissue , to close up the area left by the embedded collar around his neck that almost choked Roger to death. It's pretty much a miracle that Roger is alive today , considering his head was almost completely decapitated from his body. Roger suffered from the worst embedded collar we have ever encountered. What makes Rogers circumstances even sadder and worse is that there was a human being who watched this act occur , day after day. We hope that Rogers owner is prosecuted to the full extent of the law and he goes to jail where he belongs!

With your help they can save him from this unthinkable abuse and neglect. Everything from a tee to a bracelet can help this tiny baby heal both mentally and physically.
