Jax was abandoned at Avalon Dog Park in Saskatoon, left to fend for herself in the bitterly cold February weather. Luckily, two kind ladies noticed her and called the SPCA to pick her up. When Jax’s new owners came to pick her up, they had a chance meeting with these two ladies. They had a feeling it was Jax when they saw her distinct appearance, and the SPCA soon confirmed that she was a rescue dog from New Hope Rescue.
When Jax’s new family adopted her, they knew very little about her history. Adoption agencies typically provide minimal information about the pets they place, but Jax’s foster family provided invaluable insight into her personality and quirks. They had even bought her a treat ball that she still treasures to this day!
Jax’s foster family also gave her a bath, an experience that left quite an impression on both Jax and her new family. Now, whenever Jax wants a bath, she’ll sit by the shower and let her humans know. It’s one of many ways that Jax has shown her new family just how much she trusts and loves them.
Foster families like Jax’s are an essential part of the rescue process, providing temporary homes and love to pets in need. It’s not always easy to say goodbye when it’s time for the pet to be adopted, but it’s a vital part of the work they do. As Jax’s new family can attest, it takes a special kind of person to be a foster parent, and they are incredibly grateful for the role that Jax’s foster family played in bringing her into their lives.
For Jax’s new family, it’s clear that the love and companionship that Jax brings into their lives is priceless. As they say, “I may have rescued Jax, but equally I think she rescued me.” There’s no denying the unconditional love and joy that pets like Jax bring into our lives, and we are all the better for it.
