To save Jackie would take a plan that wasn’t wacky! A two-year-old Pit Bull mix, Jackie was found as a stray on January 20th and taken to the Smyth County Animal Shelter in Virginia. It appeared that Jackie had puppies not too long before her arrival at the shelter. She also had some skin irritation. But her greatest challenge would be getting out of the shelter alive.
On January 29th, shelter animal advocate Kathryn Haddock asked RADAR to help with Jackie. As an incentive for a rescue to pull Jackie, we provided an offer to assist with her vetting costs. On February 19th, Forever Home Animal Rescue in Virginia committed to taking Jackie. She had her initial vetting and spaying done on February 22nd.
The rescue told us this about Jackie: “She’s so full of life and deserves a chance to find her forever home. She has settled in to her foster home well. Her personality will win your heart. Jackie has lots of love and kisses to give!” To see more photos of Jackie, click here.
RADAR paid all of Jackie’s initial vetting and spaying costs, which totaled $141.
