Jasper is missing his nose. Nobody wanted him.

Jasper is missing his nose. Nobody wanted him.

 

I have been in animal rescue for over 12 years and I am officially at a loss for words. I took one look at this baby boy and just cried. I cried for him. He was just sitting at a shelter and because of the way he looks nobody wanted him. Shelter staff did not even realized that he was missing his nose.

Volunteers at Little Lotus Rescue knew they needed to act quickly and transport him to an emergency vet. They found this boy in a local shelter as an owner surrender. Rescuers have no information on what happened to him. This case is under investigation. Their only focus is on saving his life.

He has a combination of serious health concerns. He tested positive for both Valley fever along with tick fever and was untreated. He also has chronic dry eye that has been untreated effecting his vision-also extremely painful! and the obvious, a missing nose. Rescuers stated they have seen several dogs before who have lost their noses from complete neglect. 

UPDATE 4-4-19: Just 5 days later and Jasper has come such a long way. We have had so many questions about Jasper. The best explanation doctors can give is that his body was so depleted it was not able to supply blood circulation to the nose which caused it to fall off. His wound will start healing with proper care. He needs his eyes treated daily, he needs 2 different medications twice daily along with valley fever meds, anti-inflammatories and other supportive supplements. This has come at a great cost to this small nonprofit.

His history will always be a mystery but we know it was full of excruciating pain. Little Lotus Rescue is working with emergency veterinarians to stabilize and care for this innocent baby. I am sure you know that he will need to heal physically and emotionally. This takes time and funding.

We have created the animal-saving products below to help raise the funds to cover his emergency care. Please consider purchasing one of these items and share his story to help give him the second chance he deserves!

Little Lotus Rescue & Sanctuary

Little Lotus Rescue & Sanctuary is an organization in southern Arizona that changes the fate of homeless animals. The volunteer-run rescue lifts the animals out of the shelter system, placing them instead in loving, temporary foster homes. Many of these animals are ill, injured, or suffering from malnourishment, so we attain the necessary medical care to return them to health. Every animal is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Loving foster parents, Veterinarians, and an certified animal behaviorist help them overcome physical and psychological issues to again be healthy, happy pets ready for their permanent homes.

With every purchase, you can save an animal in need.
