Most of you do not know "Uncle Joe" so a quick introduction is in order. To the PAWS volunteers, Uncle Joe is a hero. He has fostered dog after dog for us - dogs that nobody else would take or consider - dogs that were in dire situations with nowhere to go. Dogs such as Cajun, Chief & Jill, Josie & Oreo (just to name a few) have romped happily at "the farm" under Joe's care.

Sadly, Uncle Joe was rushed to the hospital this morning suffering from symptoms of a heart attack. He had blockage in the main left artery, it was 100% blocked. The doctors had to insert a stent to open the artery.

One of his foster (now adopted) dogs was so upset when help arrived that he tried to get into the ambulance with Uncle Joe!

The good news is that the doctors expect Uncle Joe to make a full recovery. He will be in the hospital for a few more days.

Please keep Uncle Joe in your prayers. So many of our dogs depend on him. Foster dogs that are currently waiting for his return home include:

Thank you Uncle Joe for helping our forgotten pups - our thoughts and prayers are with you.
