The Heartwarming Tale of a Woman Who Rescued a Despondent Dog After Seeing His Picture on Facebook
Christina Morgan stumbled upon a Facebook post about Jaripo, an elderly dog who was scheduled to be put down. The post caught her attention, and she felt compelled to take action to save him. Despite the high rate of euthanasia at the shelter, nobody seemed to be taking steps to rescue Jaripo, so Morgan decided to take matters into her own hands. Despite the pouring rain and her husband’s skepticism, Morgan got in her car and drove two hours as fast as she could to meet the adorable dog.
The anxiety spiked as she called the animal shelter and the staff informed her that there was no assurance that the elderly dog would still be there upon her arrival. Morgan recounted, “They let me know that if it was necessary, they would put him to sleep.” Therefore, she stepped on the gas and hurried to the shelter to save the dog just in time.
Afterward, Morgan brought Jaripo directly to the veterinarian since the dog’s previous caretakers had indicated that he had a terminal medical condition. However, the medical results proved otherwise, and except for minor discomfort in his hips and spine, the dog was healthy.
Morgan brought Jaripo to her animal shelter, Paw Works, where the cute little dog was taken in by a caring foster family. He will now spend the rest of his days there. Morgan happily reports that Jaripo is content and has a huge grin on his face, making him one happy camper.
