Jumbo Jack's Journey to loveJuly 2, 2020 | 2:08pm
World, we are ready for you to meet Jumbo Jack.
He came to us with a gunshot in his face. We are told he was shot two weeks ago and left untreated. When he arrived, we confirmed YES, this is not a fresh wound. This giant angel has been suffering all alone for weeks. What a hellish existence he was forced to live, by the hand of man.
When he arrived at Stray Rescue, we cleaned him up and of course, as we always do, we fell in love with him. He deserves better than this, and we couldn't let him die knowing such horror and pain. We sent him directly to receive a specialty life-saving surgery to remove half of his lower jaw. He had his surgery today and did well.
He will first eat with a feeding tube, but will learn to eat on his own again soon. We just have to go very slowly because he is also emaciated and we have to avoid re-feeding syndrome. If you feed an emaciated dog too much too soon, it actually make them very sick and can even be fatal.
Please keep Jumbo Jack in your prayers during his healing journey. And again, we can't stress this enough: If you witness animal abuse or an animal in desperate need of help, it is your duty to report it and get them help. We have to be their voice.
