While driving in South Los Angeles, Vickie and Elina suddenly heard loud screams and yelps coming from nearby. They noticed a man forcefully kicking and beating a dog. The poor dog was just laying on the ground cowering and peeing itself. We have never seen such fear in any animal's eyes. He looked so afraid and confused as to why this was happening to him. We pulled over right away and started honking and yelling at the man to stop. After putting the attention on him, he finally stopped kicking him and quickly led the dog (who could barely walk) back into the junkyard of an auto shop.
Long story short... the owner of the dog and auto shop fired the man who beat his dog. The police were called and arrested the man. Since he was found to be an illegal alien, he will be going back to where he came from. The owner of the dog told us "The dog is no longer useful so we are getting another one to protect the shop". So, he gave up his dog who "was no longer useful" and surrendered him to our rescue.
Jackie has suffered years of neglect and abuse and is now in our hands. We are asking for your help. He is the kindest, sweetest and most soulful dog we have ever met. After all he has been through, he is quite defeated yet he has no fear of people and is so forgiving of everything humans have done to him. When he looks into your eyes, you can see the pain and sadness. It's very hard to look at him. But, we want to give him what he has left in his life and make it the best years he will ever have.
Jackie will need a full staff of doctors to assess the years of abuse and neglect, including chiropractors and physical therapists. Right now, he can barely walk and has a severe ear infection that is very painful. We would like to raise funds to give him the opportunity to go to rehabilitation. We will also need funds for medical boarding. Please... if you have it in your hearts to help us give Jackie a new life after all he has been through, you can donate through our website contact us for a mailing address. Thank you for caring about Jackie and giving him a chance at a new life free of abuse and full of love.
