Jackson came to us last week after having been picked up by the excellent Animal Control Officer Les Archer of New Hartford and Barkhamsted. He has a very long story which is ongoing, but he was found to first have a very poorly healed rear leg fracture then a severe diaphragmatic hernia (a hole in the muscle that separates the organs in the chest from the organs in the abdomen). He underwent an intensive surgery this week to repair the hernia and will hopefully have another surgery next week to remove the severely damaged leg. He has survived so much already in his short life, we are wishing him a full recovery! For more information on his procedure and what he’s been through, check out our Facebook page!
