These are the heartbreaking and very real moments of animal rescue. Earlier this week, our friends at J & Co Dog Rescue welcomed Jasper to their pack.
Jasper was found running stray and in dire condition. After ending up at ACCT Philly on a “chip hold” everyone was hopeful that Jasper’s family would come for him.
This sweet and gentle giant waited days for his people to come, only to be discarded like he didn’t matter. That chapter of his life is over.
J & Co jumped into action and quickly made the much-needed promise to give Jasper the care, love, and life he deserves. The team at J & Co noticed immediately that Jasper was suffering from neurological issues that affected his ability to walk and balance. Thanks to a loving foster home, he’s adjusting to his new life already!
What everyone thought would be an easy start to his new life, took a turn for the worse. Jasper had to be rushed to an Emergency Vet after expelling a t-shirt and chewed-up pair of underwear from his body. They suspected the clothing items have been lodged in his stomach for weeks! To think of how much he would have suffered on the street without the critical lifesaving care, is heartbreaking.
When Philadoptables heard Jasper’s story, we knew we wanted to help give this sweet boy the life he desperately deserves. Thanks to our generous supporters, we were lucky to provide a donation to J & Co towards Jasper’s care.
The latest update from J & Co on Jasper,
“Being abandoned by his owners, tummy full of clothing, and neurological issues… this boy is really going through it but remains the sweetest gentle giant. Jasper goes back to Patt Veterinarian Hospital today for X rays on his spine. All 4 paws buckle and drag when he walks causing his nails and toes to be worn down . His bills are quickly adding up and we would be so grateful for contributions towards his care. Thank you for all the love and support for this amazing boy “
