Animal cruelty such as what was done to Phoebe is considered a felony and the responsible person could face more than five years in prison. If you have any information, you are asked to call Hillsborough County Animal Services at (813)-744-5660.

Once Phoebe has recovered from her injuries, she will be available for adoption. For more information on this beautiful dog and how you can help contact information is provided below:

Donations to The Phoebe Fund may be made to the 501c3 non-profit organization at:

Friends of Hillsborough County Animal Services P.O. Box 2191 Seffner, FL 33583 or contact
