Thanks to RescueMe.Org and the West Memphis Greyhound Rescue, Jethro of Ruckus is on his way to a loving new home. His new family tragically lost their 15yr old greyhound just recently to cancer. They have another (female) greyhound at home, and were recommended by the West Memphis rescue.
Our 3 short days with Jethro have been amazing! Having stumbled upon him in a rural area here in Arkansas, we knew instantly that we had to find his home. He was too well mannered and healthy to have been a stray for very long. We quickly learned how to trace his ear tattoos through the national greyhound registry and not only found out his proper name and lineage, but his date of birth, race record, etc. The registry also showed that he was adopted out through the West Memphis rescue. From there, the rescue was able to contact the former owner. Unfortunately, he was unwilling to continue to care for Jethro. The rescue then made the decision to place Jethro with his new family.
Since they were the ones that originally rescued Jethro, we felt the need to refer to the Greyhound rescue to place him with his new family. However, in the day since the ad was posted on RescueMe.Org, we have received numerous calls from loving families wanting to adopt Jethro.
Turns out that Jethro has had an amazing life. Thanks to RescueMe.Org, and other pet loving organizations and individuals alike, his story will continue.
Thanks again to you and your organization for all the work you do.
