One eyed Jack is a loveable homeless pit bull mix in Houston’s Fifth Ward. He was discovered by a volunteer of the Forgotten Dogs of the Fifth Ward Project yesterday. He was hit by a car a few days before and suffers from a leg injury and severely infected nipple. The volunteer was forced to leave him on the street because there is nowhere for him to go without a foster home. It is imperative to rescue him before he succumbs to his injuries or is picked up by heartless people for unspeakable reasons.
The volunteer stated,” He was sooooo loving, licked our faces, and was BEGGING to be saved. PLEASE offer to foster Jack so we can rescue him off the street. Contact Alicia Mccarty if you can help.
If you are interested in fostering this sweet boy please fill out an application at www.forgottendogs.org and specify him.”
From their site, “We care for and feed all that we can. We are a group of dedicated volunteers who help the forgotten and abandoned animals of the 5th Ward, Houston, TX. We offer animals in need help with placement in a no kill rescue, and assist the residents of this area with food, vetting and pet care as needed.”
Donations to help support this group and their efforts can be made here.
