Update, 4/7/13! Walter is doing so well! Thank you so much for making his life possible! Please check out his update letter below.
Hi There! It’s me, Walter!
As you can see from my picture, my appearance has improved considerably since I first arrived at STAF. Come to think of it, everything in my life has improved considerably, thanks to you! With your help and support I’ve gone from being wrapped in plastic and tossed away, literally like a piece of trash, to a spunky little man with a heck of a wardrobe! (I just got some new t-shirts this week – I’m all set for spring!)
Over the past 6 weeks, in addition to all my volunteer care, I’ve been to see a few specialists to help me out. My skin looks great and doesn’t hurt anymore. I can breathe without struggling because of the medication I have. I’ve gained some weight and gotten the exercise I need to let me walk with straight legs again. My teeth will be fixed up when I’m 100%, and wait till you see the smile I have then! Best of all, whenever someone visits me now, I know I don’t have to be afraid. I’m pretty sure I’ll never have to be afraid again.
I never thought all this could be possible, but because of your kindness and care, it is. You helped STAF raise almost $3000 for my medical care and I can never thank you enough. It has been the difference between dying alone, uncared for, and having the best care any dog could ever hope for. Thank you so much for all you’ve done for me. I’m the luckiest pooch on the planet!
All my love and gratitude,
Meet Walter, a Jack Russell terrier.
Tuesday, Feb. 5th, he was found wrapped in plastic like last week's leftovers and discarded under a deck in Maysville, Kentucky. Today he is under the care of STAF, where he will be surrounded by the kind of love he's never known before.
Initial assessment: a bad flea infestation that's left his hindquarters virtually bald, terrible teeth with exposed roots, back end weakness (who knows how long he was wrapped up before he was found).
Yesterday he was alone and unloved for the last time.
Please send prayers and donations to help getting this little man back on the road to health.
