Now more than ever, you are needed to donate your old blankets, towels, and sheets to your local animal shelter. With financial cut-backs, repairs on shelters are often put off, so if it's drafty, the animals suffer. I know my shelter uses rags to stuff under doors. No kidding! Empty out those closets... this is your chance to get rid of stuff and do something useful!

Jeffrey Coppock, Dog Beater


6136 Evening Star Lane, Knoxville, TN

Officers responded to Coppock's home, 6136 Evening Star Lane, on April 8 where they found a Shih Tzu in the back yard they believe Coppock had beaten.

A report from the sheriff's office said the dog had blood around its nose, appeared to have broken bones, was taking short, shallow breaths and was wet.
