Mama’s rescuer Christianna Willis, 23, was working at an animal hospital in Nashville at the time and brought her in to consult the vets on the dog’s medical condition. Just by looking at Mama, Christianna knew she was in bad shape.
From the Craigslist post:
It was clear that Mama’s injuries were serious, but they had no idea of the extent of her medical issues until tests revealed that Mama had breast cancer.
It was decided that Mama would be put down. In her anger, Christianna wrote an emotional Craigslist post which detailed Mama Jade’s horrific experience.
A Miraculous Turn
The post solicited a flood of support from people across the nation, and enough donations were made to pay for Mama’s treatment. Since that day, Mama has been getting excellent care from the folks at PetMed Animal Hospital in Antioch, TN. She received two life-saving surgeries, and is being treated for heartworm disease. We are happy to report that in the beginning of December, Mama moved to her new foster home and is getting the utmost love and attention.
