Jax’s Story: Will you give him his second chance?

by | Northern projects |

 

Jax has quite the story!

Jax at the Ontario SPCA Barrie Animal Centre.

Jax was part of the Northern transfer program at the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society. He came to the Ontario SPCA Barrie Animal Centre at three months old from the Timmins Humane Society, which reached out for help with his troublesome issue.  Jax was born with a congenital condition called Luxating Patella, which essentially caused his knee to regularly pop out of place. The condition made it extremely painful for poor Jax to get around. 

After surgery and months of hydrotherapy and physiotherapy, Jax is ready for adoption!

If you’re interested in adopting Jax, please call the Ontario SPCA Barrie Animal Centre: (705) 728-7311.

I stand behind SPCA with my monthly gift

I stand behind SPCA with my monthly gift. I am so happy there are folks like you to care for those who can’t help themselves.  My family and I have had animals all our lives and know what a comfort they are.  Thank you SPCA.
