Jax is doing well and will be going to a new loving home very soon. The outpouring of interest we have received about Jax is heartwarming and shows how many animal lovers there are out there. While we only have one Jax, we—and shelters across the country—have many other animals available for adoption. Their stories are not as amazing as Jax’s, but they are equally in need of love.
