Just over a week ago, things were looking pretty bleak for Jasper, a 12 year old Collie cross. His owner was seriously ill and the family were unable to keep him. He was taken to a vet to be put to sleep the day before New Year’s eve. As Jasper was in good health, the vet was very reluctant to euthanase him – but the practice were closing for the New Year and were unable to keep him for more than another day.
Luckily, the vet called an Oldies Club volunteer, and a last minute rescue operation swung into action. Then suddenly – disaster, the volunteer fosterers car would not start, and there was no time to reschedule. Oldies Club Fundraising coordinator Ange stepped in and offered to take Jasper for a few days, to save his life.
A week later and there’s a happy ever after, Jasper is staying with Ange and her family for good. You can read Ange’s blog posts about Jasper (and see more of her wonderful photos) here.
