A little bit about Jasper
Jasper joined the I.C.A.R.E family in June of 2013 literally minutes before he was to be put to sleep at the shelter from which he was rescued. He is your typical fun loving, energetic dog, who loves taking walks, but not for long because he tires quickly because he has a severely deformed front leg. Jasper also has a bad case of double hip dysplasia so if his hips give out there will be no way his weak front leg will be able to help support the extra weight, which will leave this young and playful dog crippled. That being the case, Jaspar urgently needed surgery on his front leg in order to correct the deformity. I.C.A.R.E. walked with the JFFD “Just Need A Home” Pack in The Hollywood Christmas Parade and their $1500 donation went directly to helping us reach our goal of $5000 to get the much needed surgery to strengthen his paw and give him the opportunity for a long, healthy life he deserves. The procedure he received involved cutting the bone in a few different places and then setting pins that stick out of his skin. We at ICARE can’t thank the Just Food For Dogs team enough for their generosity and support!
Jasper is now in recovery and looking for his permanent home.
