About the Campaign
OMG, this poor girl! Her family dumps her, pregnant at the animal shelter, she’s covered in deep cuts, bleeding, can’t stand up… they claim their large dog attacked her, and then x-rays show she has BB pellets in her back!!
Her story starts here, with UPDATES BELOW! If you have already read this part please scroll down to UPDATES.
Her injuries include laceration, pulmonary contusions, dislocated elbow, possible broken bones.
She has been rescued by Animal Foundation of America, April 8th, and is going straight to the vet. We will update the fundraiser amount when we have a specific estimate. All donations are only for Jasmine and will only be paid to the rescue and vet!
Thank you for considering a donation. Please watch the videos, they tell the story. PLEASE SHARE! WOOOOF!

This story has taken an amazing turn! There is good news, sad news, and amazing news.
Good news is that Jasmine is doing very well. Christina of Animal Foundation of America is fostering her, and she took Jasmine for her first check up over the weekend. Her drain tube has been removed, and she appears infection free. She has multiple BBs inside her still, but it is stable. There will be a surgery to remove some or all of them in the future, but for now it is OK.
Sad news is that all three surviving puppies passed away. They were simple “born” too early, and could not survive. One died shortly after being removed, the other two, which we had been hopeful for were discovered dead on Sunday, April 14th. Jasmine’s milk has come in and she was nursing, but now there are now puppies.
AND THEN: Christina came across six abandoned, just 1-2 week old puppies….. and she had an AMAZING idea: Jasmine could wet-nurse the puppies, it would of course be good for the puppies, but also give Jasmine something to latch on to as well. She had been abused, she had lost her whole litter! So guess what? Now Jasmine is nursing these new puppies, and so far it is going very well! The world can be an amazing place!! Video:
Vet doc and update on requested donations:
We have lowered the requested amount from $4000.00 to $2500.00 as we have gotten more precise estimates from the vet. One of Jasmine’s firsts bills is below:
She will need more follow up, and at some point soon surgery to remove the BB’s still insider of her. And yes, there is a high level animal-abuse investigation underway. We have been asked not to focus on that, due to the investigation being currently active, and it is not OUR focus, our focus is getting Jasmine the care she needs. 🙂

Jasmine had seven puppies. She required immediate emergency surgery. The procedure was tough, and she almost died. The doctor who did the surgery was so upset and overwhelmed that he canceled the rest of his day after the procedure and went home. Her abuse was significant. There were seven puppies, one was still-born on the way to the vet, three were dead in her uterus, BUT THREE SURVIVED!
They are 2-3 weeks premature, and their prognosis is guarded. Here is a video of one of them, followed by a group photo. We are very hopeful on them!
We are not giving all the details of her case right now as we have been informed by LA County Animal Control that there is now a serious investigation underway. Jasmine’s case has been elevated to the highest level within Animal Control. She was in severe pain, and was clearly purposefully hurt. She is much happier today (April 10th)!
She is running around, happy face… and she has accepted her surviving puppies and cleaned them, and is caring for them.
We will keep you posted on her case as it develops. Follow us on Facebook and on Instagram! Thank you for assisting…. we understand not everyone can donate right now, but SHARING helps a lot too! WOOF!!
