Jammie was one of seven adult dogs rescued from being euthanised in early December 2022. We can only guess what poor Jammie had been through, but she's now got another chance at life, and has undergone quite a transformation in just a few weeks!
On 1 December 2022, we did something we rarely do - we paid a visit to the Dumaguete Pound, hoping to find one of our main supporter's dog, Bluebell, who had gone missing. Sadly she wasn't there, but we couldn't face the thought of leaving the poor dogs there awaiting a lethal injection later that day. Jammie was one of them.
The Pound collects reported strays and keeps them for three days, waiting for any owner to claim them. When they are not (and most are not), the City's policy is to put them to sleep. We cannot take every Pound dog, which is why we don't visit if we can help it. It's just too painful. One of the seven, Champ, never made it through the night - he was just too ill - but we gave him a chance all the same. RIP Champ. Another, Jessa, was pregnant and gave birth to three puppies, two of which survived (Bryce and Bettina), and they stayed in the Quarantine area in their own private room.
Jammie was very scared, shaking anytime anyone came near her. She is friendly by nature, and bit by bit, is becoming more used to kind treatment from humans, which indicates her experiences before rescue must have been terrible.
After Quarantine, treatment, spaying and neutering, five of the seven were released to the main Sanctuary area, but they didn't integrate well and there were lots of fights, so we moved them into "Milo's Old Pound" to allow them some freedom and safety, and to get used to their new surroundings. Four remain at the moment - Sterling, Jammie, Joy and Gene - and Jason has escaped to the area around the Main Office and found new friends there.
