A stray dog found wandering near a rural church in Georgia has shattered the hearts of everyone at an emergency veterinarian hospital on Sunday. In one of the most egregious cases of pure neglect, the dog wore TWO severely embedded collars around his neck. In the middle of the embedded collars, a huge mass exists.

Rescue Dogs Rock NYC responded to the 911 call and made arrangements to help the young dog they have named Isiah and agreed to assume all financial responsibilities for the dog’s care.

“Our hearts are shattered and at the same time, our blood is boiling,” stated the rescue organization’s co-founder Jackie O’Sullivan. “Can you imagine his pain, suffering, feelings of complete desperation and helplessness?”

On Monday morning, Isiah was transferred from the veterinarian who administered the dog’s emergency care to the organization’s partner veterinary hospital. The following video shows the next chapter beginning in Isiah’s new life:


“We have learned it took 2 weeks to finally catch him at that GA church. Poor baby is so scared. The embedded collars have been removed but the wounds need to be closed & that mass addressed,” co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, Jackie O’Sullivan posted on Facebook early Monday afternoon.

Isiah has comfortably settled in to his temporary shelter as he will be prepared for surgery once all of his testing has been completed. In the mean time, this sweet dog already planted a kiss on his veterinarian’s face. Yes, Isiah knows he is being helped, and there really are kind people in the world.

    He’s amazing. Seeing that tail was & watching him eat, it’s a miracle. I was really worried about him yesterday. Pulling for you, Isiah. Thank you, FOR NYC.

    Thank God for Rescue Dogs Rock NYC – if not for their intervention, Isiah would have been put down – I hope he recovers completely and gets the safe loving home he surely never had. He deserves to be spoiled and cared for.
