Jake came to us on July 3, 2019, from an overcrowded shelter Southeast of Columbus, Ohio. Not much is known about his time prior to coming to the shelter, only that he had been chained outside his whole life with a number of other dogs.

After arriving at the Rescue it was discovered that Jake was heartworm positive. He also developed a nasty case of pneumonia which required prompt medical attention and a rigorous and intensive treatment plan. Jake recovered quickly from pneumonia but now is facing a new challenge. It was discovered that Jake had a large mass on his left hind leg. A biopsy revealed the mass to be a low-grade mast cell tumor. At the recommendation of our veterinarian, we have reached out and scheduled a surgical consult for Jake next week with MedVet Toledo to have the tumor removed.

Jake is a special dog. He is quiet and loving and has the sort of gentle soul that touches the hearts of complete strangers. We are grateful for the opportunity to help Jake on his path towards recovery and towards finding a new family to love him as much as we know he will love them.

We will post updates of Jake’s journey on this webpage. Thank you for taking the time to learn about Jake.
