On Halloween night, a puppy was callously tossed from a moving vehicle and left to fend for himself. Luckily, two compassionate women noticed the lonely dog and took him to the Albany Police Station, where animal control was called. Unfortunately, they couldn’t provide adequate medical care for the injured pup and suggested euthanasia. However, Officer Jon-David Hill refused to let that happen and took Jack, as he later named the pup, under his care. He brought Jack to a 24-hour animal hospital, where veterinarians advised amputating one of his legs due to an old injury. Despite losing a limb, Jack remained a playful and affectionate dog, jumping on couches and playing with balls. Although initially shy around people, Jack couldn’t resist giving out kisses once he smelled them.
While taking a stroll, two women chanced upon a sorrowful dog that was crying incessantly. Being compassionate individuals, they immediately agreed to bring the distressed pup to the Albany Police Station.
The animal control authority declared that no further measures could be taken to resolve the situation, leaving euthanasia as the only viable option.
Officer Hill’s kind-hearted act of taking the young boy under his care and becoming his adopted parent was motivated by his desire to spare the child from a life of immense suffering and hardship. He couldn’t bear the thought of the boy living a short and unhappy life, and thus, extended his compassion towards him.
Even though the fluffy dog has lost a limb, it has been able to find a loving home to belong to!
