Sometimes the animals that come to The Ark aren't just homeless, they've been abandoned. 

Jackson is a 5 year old Shi-tzu who, along with his buddy Casper, was left behind when his owners moved. 

Nina had agreed to take the dogs in, without seeing their condition first. It was only when her vet called to say that they were in some of the worst shape that she'd ever seen that Nina knew how poorly they had been treated before being left behind. Their matted hair was shaved, their fleas gotten rid of and both animals were given a lot of love when they got to The Ark. Casper has since been adopted and now Jackson is just waiting on a happy home! 

Nina also has at least 30 cats and kittens at the shelter in need of homes and has reduced the adoption fees for them for the rest of the month, in hopes of getting them new families faster.
