Starving, emaciated and suffering from skin issues, this poor little six-month-old Chocolate Lab mix arrived on September 17th at the Rowan County Animal Shelter in Kentucky. Fortunately, the volunteers with STAR (Saving The Animals of Rowan) stepped up to help Jazmin.
STAR participates in a wonderful low-cost veterinary care program offered through Morehead State University’s Veterinary Technology Program (MSU-VTP). Jazmin was evaluated and treated during the last week of September by MSU-VTP. She was diagnosed with having non-contagious demodectic mange, and is on a 30-day medication regime.
Amy Stanton, the MSU-VTP coordinator, described Jazmin as “an absolute sweetheart who needs someone who will love her as much as she will love them!” Click here to see more photos of Jazmin.
Jazmin is now in a foster home and on the road to recovery, getting her medication, much-needed food, and lots of TLC. She will be reexamined by MSU-VTP at the end of October, and will be spayed as soon as she’s well enough.
RADAR has committed to paying the cost of at least one STAR dog going to the MSU-VTP each month. Jazmin was the dog selected for September. RADAR’s commitment to cover Jazmin’s treatment and spaying will be $103.
