Lieutenant McWhorter was also at the event on Sunday to wish Jason well on his new journey and give him a hug goodbye! Jason when he was first found in September 2016. Shocking. Fortunately Jason was taken in by local group Sophies Circle Dog Rescue and went to live with Sophies Circle volunteer Jen who became his foster mom during his recovery. Jason collected a huge social media following along the way and some people may say Why so much attention on just one dog, there are so many more like him out there!. This is absolutely true but some cases are very compelling and just take off, so if people want to follow Jasons journey then sobeit! Jason is a poster dog for all the others like him who are also suffering and his story raises awareness, bringing home the harsh reality that neglect like this is happening in our own backyards right here in Volusia County. His story reinforces the need to support our local animal rescue groups and animal agencies who work so hard every day to relieve these animals from suffering and prepare them for new lives. Jason now! January 2017 around 5 months after being rescued. When Sophies Circle Dog Rescue were approached about Jason they were told that he had no hope unless they took him and would probably be euthanized.
