Jaxon’s Story

Adoptable dog Jax is all smiles these days, but that wasn’t always the case. Jax came to Friendship after he was struck by a vehicle. His leg unfortunately took most of the impact and with the cost of surgery and vet care in general rising, his family made the decision to surrender him to FAPL. By surrendering Jax to our care, we were able to get him to our partner Veterinarian and the help he needed. Jax’s leg was too far gone and the decision to amputate was made. Jax has since made a full recovery and has completely overcome any adversity three legs have thrown his way.

Jax has a resilient, brave and loyal personality, which has proven to capture the hearts of all of the staff and volunteers here at FAPL. After getting his second chance at life, he spent time in our Prison Program freshening up on basic commands such as sit, down, stay and heel. This handsome boy is a prime example of how your generosity and donations are used to provide second chances for dogs and cats. Jax is still available and looking for his forever home!
