This is one of those stories you have to see to believe. JoJo’s “owner” put her for sale… on Craigslist… for $20. Yes, you read that right. I am still in disbelief. We have video and photos of just how destroyed this poor girl is. She has a huge mass that raptured on her abdomen. She has been living in her own fluids for weeks with dried blood and puss all over her legs and tummy. Two women saw this post on Craigslist and decided JoJo needed a miracle. So They rushed to the home and purchased her for $20 to SAVE HER LIFE. They are heroes! Now JoJo needs your help!
By the looks of her she hasn't had a day of love in her life. When they went to pick her up the mass had been ruptured and the “owner” said for three days he's been pouring peroxide on it! Can you believe it? So instead of caring for JoJo her owner decided he wanted to make a quick $20. I am past crying at this point… I am outraged and angry! The owner has been reported.
She was rushed by her rescuers at Second Chance Rescue NYC to an ER Vet late last night. Staff say she hasn't had a bath in months. JoJo has old and new blood all over her and dried onto her fur. Her rescuers say it looks like she has just been living in her own blood and fluid for weeks. ER staff immediately went into action to save old JoJo. She is in A LOT of pain. I mean A LOT! Imagine having an infected large mass rupture on your body and her owner is just sitting there pouring hydrogen peroxide on the open wound. Can you image how painful that must have been? I know I can’t. It’s a miracle she is alive. Please help save JoJo.
The poor old girl had her first bath and all of the blood that was stuck to her was washed away. Through the pain, the dried blood and infection she reached out her little tongue to kiss vet staff and wagged her tail for the first time. This brought many people to tears. JoJo has a grapefruit sized tumor that needs to be removed. It doesn't seem to have spread so it looks as though this tumor can be removed. Second Chance Rescue writes, “All of your donations matter… Thank you all for helping JoJo get the best care possible.”

UPDATE 12-8-16: From the moment she was picked up her life improved 300%! She is actually being shown love and compassion. She needs bilateral mammary glands removed and spay. Each side has to be separate. JoJo is with the staff at the vet now awaiting her surgeries. She has a mammary tumor the size of a grapefruit. The tests show that the tumor hasn't spread internally and should be able to be safely removed. Her surgery is going to be very costly so any help you can offer is greatly appreciated!
UPDATE 12-11-16 : JOJO was able to leave the hospital and be in a medical foster home until her first surgery. Not just any home, but the home of one of the amazing women that rescued her! I have happy tears! She has two big surgeries ahead of her and the medical staff felt it was best for her to relax in a home and feel part of a family for the first time before she is put under the knife fighting for her life. JoJo still has a very long recovery ahead of her and she still needs your support.
Update 1-16-17 : Jojo our sad Craigslist save is home from the hospital after a successful surgery in which she had her tumor and mammary glands removed, a giant hernia repaired, and a spay. Looking so much better already!! Jojo's surgery was expensive and she will be recovering for a while.
