Jesse was picked up by Amarillo Animal Control on October 28 and we were notified on October 29. Because the shelter didn't think he would make it through the weekend without help due to his emaciated condition, we were allowed to take him to Animal Medical Center in Amarillo for the weekend for medical evaluation and treatment. The shelter has a mandatory 72 hours of hold time, so Jesse may have to return to the shelter on Monday and stay until Tuesday to satisfy that condition.
Jesse's bloodwork showed low platelets. He tested positive to ehrlichia and thankfully is negative to heartworm and intestinal parasites. We are waiting on his test results for other tick-borne diseases.
Jesse weighs 33 1/2 pounds and is approximate 3-4 years old. His appetite is good. He is very weak, but can still wag his beautifully curved tail.
Jesse is cat trainable, and has not yet been tested with small animals.
The special medical treatment cost needed by Jesse is why the Miss Mesa Fund was established. If you would like to help with Jesse's care, please take a moment to make a donation to the fund. You can use a credit card, check or PayPal by making the donation through the GALT GreytStore. You can also write a check (Greyhound Adoption League of Texas, P.O.
