This Woman Saw a Note Online About an Elderly Dog At a Kill Shelter, So She Dropped Everything To Save Him


This elderly dog, named Jaripo, was about to be put down at a kill shelter when Christina Morgan saw his photo posted onto Facebook. She noticed the dog resided at a high-kill shelter, so she dropped everything to drive two hours away to save him.

She called the shelter to tell them she was coming, but even then they said he might not be there later, so she sped up her driving, and she arrived in the nick of time!

She rushed Jaripo to the veterinarian, and took her to Paw Works, an animal rescue organization she runs. There, a family offered to foster Jaripo. He’s such a sweet dog, and it makes us wonder who could ever put him down!
