Jada reminds us we’ll always need rescue groups and shelters
No matter how hard we try, there will always be a need for shelters and rescues groups to help find new homes for the dogs and cats that simply cannot stay in the ones they have, and that’s the case with Jada. She needs your help.
This is Jada today. When we first met her at an outreach even for low-income pet owners in Southeast Dallas in June, she was covered in mange (see below). Her owner had brought her to us to try and get her some help. He’d already been to the vet and had tried his best to care for her, but the medicines weren’t helping. One of the volunteers that day was able to hook Jada’s owner up with a special fund that helped provide the treatment she needed, and her hair has now grown back. But circumstances have changed and now, sadly, her owner can no longer keep her.
She is healthy, vaccinated, heartworm negative and has 2 more months of preventatives. She is not yet spayed, but the cost of that will be taken care of by the same organization that paid for her care. The vet said she is a heeler/terrier/shepherd mix. She is about 5 months old. She is very loving and sweet with kids, dogs and people. She is house-trained, and absolutely adorable.
Paws In The City will take Jada into their Guest Dog adoption program if they can just find someone can foster her. Can you help? If you think you can, please email Becky at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. They will transport her to you.
