Jack's family dumped him at the shelter with a huge tumor on his face!

 

Ok friends this is a hard case. This is the second case in one weekend with a HUGE tumor growing over a dogs mouth. When I first saw photos of Jack I was stunned with disbelief. Then when I learned his owners left him at the Carson animal shelter with a horrible and huge mass on his face I was disgusted. It breaks my heart to think his family dumped him in this condition. I cannot begin to understand who could do something like this. What I have to focus on now is saving this babies' life. Please join me. 

Jack was dumped as a senior at eight-year-old. Given his age and huge mass he had no chance at surviving in a high-kill shelter. Labradors and Friends Dog Rescue saw his photos and immediately stepped up to transfer him to emergency care. They knew if it weren't for them he would die. Now they need your help.

Emergency staff went into action. Here is what we know. Jack was actually diagnosed with Oral Malignant Melanoma back in June and his owners decided they didn't want to treat him! Well Jack this all changes now. The only option to give him a good quality of life is palliative radiation. His lungs and lymph nodes are clear and his blood work looked good so his Oncologist gave rescuers the green light to begin radiation treatment. 

I personally have a senior paralyzed baby named Oliver who has an inoperable brain tumor. He has undergone radiation treatment and it has made a huge impact in his life. So I know first hand that we won't beat this but we can make his life better while he is with us! 

UPDATE : I have a message from Jack himself! "Hey everyone, it's me Jack. This Thursday's radiation went much better! They didn't use an extra sedative on me so I wasn't all doped up like I was last week. That made foster mom happy because I was more of my energetic self.

Foster mom asked the doctor about what the plan will be after my 6 weeks of radiation is complete. Initially she said simply; we wait. Of course that was kind of the wrong answer for the FM, so she asked about other options.

In a couple of weeks, after my 5th treatment, we'll meet with Dr Askin and Dr Oakley to inquire about a melanoma vaccine series. Dr Askin seems to believe I am a candidate for it but she did mention it is kind of expensive. She explained to FM that the radiation only treats the tumor locally whereas the vaccine, boosts the immune system and stalls or slows the spread of the cancer and any metastasis."

Jack still needs your help! So does his nonprofit! I have a baby who has gone through radiation treatment and I know first hand how hard it is. And very expensive. With your help they can continue treatment on Jack and make sure this sweet boy survives!  

So now I am asking for your help. Every shirt, hoodie and bracelet can help save Jack's life! We have partnered with Labradors and Friends Dog Rescue to create this week's animal saving products! Please, if you can, purchase one of our Jack + LAFDR items below! With your help we can give this victim of neglect a new lease on life.
