On Mother’s Day 2015, a 5-month-old pit bull mix puppy suddenly collapsed after wandering onto a stranger’s porch. The puppy had suffered life-threatening wounds and tears to his head and neck as a result of being part of an illegal dog fighting ring.
After discovering the pet, the stranger immediately contacted Unleashed Pet Rescue in Topeka, Kansas, who quickly dispatched a team to save the puppy. A female staffer became the puppy’s savior – quite appropriate given it was Mother’s day.
When the woman first found the puppy, he hardly resembled an animal. He was so beat up that his eyes were shut and there were big gashes across his neck.
It honestly didn’t even seem like the puppy was alive, until he thumped his tail a bit. The woman decided to visit the puppy every night until the day he went to his foster home.
With each night under full care, Jax’s health improved. His eyes began to open, and he could finally smile.
The woman says, “It has got to be the worst emotional feeling there could ever be. How could someone do that, and let that happen?”
Today, Jax is 6-months-old, he’s a living example of the terrifying horrors and consequences of animal abuse.
