Phoenix Needs Your Help!
Posted on: June 7, 2018

This happy boy was named in the hopes that he can overcome his past.

When Phoenix’s story was brought to the rescue’s attention, volunteers immediately sprung into action to bring him into care and get him the veterinary care he needed.

Sadly, Phoenix is suffering from a condition of severe neglect (wounds from abuse and lack of care; underweight and sick). He is currently being seen at Lanark Veterinary Services in Smiths Falls, ON. He has shown volunteers and clinic staff what an amazing, gentle and loving dog he is! Rocky Road Rescue is going to provide Phoenix with all the care, love and support he needs to overcome his past.

If you would like to donate to his care, please visit our Give page to send funds to the rescue or directly to the vet clinic. You can also visit us at our upcoming events!
