Shriners To Pay Baby's Hospital Bills

A local group has volunteered to pay the doctor bills of the baby whose toes were chewed off by a pit bull puppy in Onslow County.

The four-month-old child of Robbie Jenkins and Tremayne Spillman in Onslow County lost his toes in September. Lawmen say the two were asleep and didn't hear the baby cry.

Now the Onslow County Shriners say they will pay to take the baby to the Shriners Hospital in Greenville, South Carolina for treatment, according to Sheriff Ed Brown.

Jenkins and Spillman are still in jail, with a court appearance scheduled for next Monday.

    Could you list the group that volunteered and a mailing address? I think others would contribute to this cause if more funds are needed.

    This is very nice. The only thing that would make it better would be for the parents to be made to repay the group so they could help someone else. If the parents won't pay, hold them in contempt of court and put them in jail. If they are not goung to support their child at least they will not be making another one.
