It’s jolly Jasper! He’s described as being “happy, happy, happy!” This five-year-old American English Coonhound mix was found as a stray and taken to the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee on December 12th. Because he was very thin and hungry, it’s believed that he had been on the run for some time. Unfortunately, Jasper tested heartworm positive.
On January 15th, Kristin Baksa from the shelter contacted RADAR for help with his heartworm treatment costs. “Our shelter is populated with many Hounds who have been abandoned,” Kristin said. “It’s hard to believe that no one ever came to reclaim Jasper. Very sad.” We agreed to assist. Jasper received his heartworm treatment on January 28th. Soon afterwards, the rescue Last Hope in Minnesota committed to take Jasper.
“He’s a big, goofy guy!” Kristin told us. “He’s great with other dogs but does not prefer the company of cats. This boy loves his food. He is a gorgeous dog!” To view more photos of Jasper, click here.
RADAR paid $250 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Jasper.
