Francis was left in a cardboard box on the roadside, and it seemed like he had passed away. However, something miraculous occurred that changed everything.
One freezing Winter evening, a group of people stumbled upon a cardboard box beside a dumpster in their neighborhood. They were curious and decided to take a look, only to find a puppy lying motionless inside. Initially, they assumed the worst, but upon closer inspection, they noticed that the pup was still breathing. This is the story of Francis – the puppy who almost didn’t make it.
Thankfully, Francis was swiftly taken to the Community Animal Rescue & Adoption, Inc. (CARA) – a no-kill animal rescue center in Jackson, Mississippi. After a thorough examination by the vet, it was discovered that Francis was alive but in a deep coma. The poor little pup had been left out in the cold and abandoned like rubbish.
It’s hard to imagine how someone could do such a cruel thing, but it happens all too often. Fortunately, Francis was one of the lucky ones who got a second chance at life thanks to the kindness of strangers. With time, love, and care, Francis slowly recovered and eventually found a forever home with a loving family.
Francis’ story is a reminder that every animal deserves a chance at life and that we can all make a difference, no matter how small. So, if you ever come across an animal in need, don’t hesitate to lend a helping hand. You might just save a life.
CARA made every effort to nurse him back to good health, despite his lack of response. He was kept comfortable and warm, and a special event was held in his honor on Valentine’s Day.
After waking up, he was accompanied by some lovely folks from CARA to receive round-the-clock care at home. For two months, he had to rely on a feeding tube and had difficulty standing up. However, the therapy he received from a wonderful therapist helped him progress from merely opening his eyes and lifting his head to standing up independently. Harriet Scott, his owner, spoke about his experience.
We feel extremely fortunate to have been selected to provide a forever home for this remarkable dog who had garnered so much attention. However, in our eyes, he is simply Francis – an affectionate and lively companion who loves to frolic and bask in the sun, snooze on the couch, and relish the type of existence that we wish all stray pets could experience.
He is an indispensable part of our family, his affection and attachment towards people are exceptional because it was the kindness of humans that rescued him.
