jasmine-dog_deer_.jpgIn 2003, police in Warwickshire, England, opened a garden shed and found a whimpering, cowering dog. It had been locked in the shed and abandoned. It was dirty and malnourished, and had clearly been abused.

In an act of kindness, the police took the dog, which was a Greyhound female, to the nearby Nuneaton Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary, run by a man named Geoff Grewcock and known as a willing haven for Animals abandoned, orphaned or otherwise in need.

They named her Jasmine, and they started to think about finding her an adoptive home.

But Jasmine had other ideas. No one remembers now how it began, but she started welcoming all Animal arrivals at the sanctuary. It wouldn’t matter if it was a puppy, a fox cub, a rabbit or, any other lost or hurting Animal, Jasmine would peer into the box or cage and, where possible, deliver a welcoming lick.

  1. How touching! I rescued a greyhound over 6 years ago and he just passed last October. They are wonderful animals. More like a cross between a cat and a pony than like a dog! What wonderful and tender images. Thank you!

  2. I so agree with you Rickysmom, we have a white fluffy cat who we found on the side of the road around guyfawks night 2 years ago, he is such a adorable cat, he just loves our dog Minnie, everytime they see eachother they always greet eachother with a lick, sniff and sweep againist eachother, it is so cute. Minnie is from a pound also, she is lovely in so many ways.
