Welcome to the family Jefferson

JANINE: I’m driving back from Morgantown in tears over a dog sleeping peacefully in my back seat.

His whole body is covered in burns, whether grease or chemicals, we will never know. He smells of pus and infection. His right eye is no longer of use. The muscle shows through on his hind leg where the flesh was eaten away.

I can't even fathom the pain this poor dog has experienced..the pain that we humans, we monsters, have inflicted on him.  Instead of showing hate or shying away, he greeted me with a wagging tail and kisses.

For once in my life I have no words to express what I’m feeling right now...no words to express how sorry I am that we failed you.

All I can do is make you a promise that I will show you enough love and affection to try to make up for all the bad in your past.

Welcome to the family, Jefferson. ♡
