“JJ’s life before rescue was pretty lonely and not looking good. He was wandering near a couple of farms and had obviously been out for a while. What’s even sadder is that JJ was someone’s pet at one point which became evident as time went on.

“A TNR group trapped JJ, and while at the vet he began to warm up to the staff. Top Dog Rescue took him into work on his socialization and evaluate some medical issues. Volunteers at the rescue found two spots where BB’s were in his skin, as well as a wound on his tail that was likely from a gun also. After trying various solutions to help his tail heal, it was determined that the wound in his tail necessitated the removal of the tail. The wound was also causing hair loss on the rest of JJ’s body. Luckily JJ had been trapped, and we could work to help him, but it’s really sad to think someone decided to shoot at JJ.

“JJ has not found his forever home, as his recovery is just getting to the point where he can be put up for adoption, but his life at the foster home is great. He spends a lot of time lounging on the top level of the cat tree or hanging out near his foster parents to get his tummy and ears scratched. He is so great with the other cats in his foster home and will make some lucky adopter a fantastic addition to their family.

“GreaterGood.org’s Rescue Bank program makes it possible for our rescue to work on cases like JJ. Many of the pets we work with are not “quick adoptions,” and need time and extra vet care. The support from Rescue Bank allows us to help these unfortunate pets.”
