Jax is an absolutely precious boy! He showed up in someones yard in horrific condition. Those nice people wanted to do the right thing for Jax and contacted the angels to swoop in and help him. Jax is 2 years old and the beginning of this little mans life I can only imagine. He came to us with his entire body having a skin infection and his front two legs were deformed simply, we believe, from malnutrition and poor care. The good news is, he is in a great foster home now getting the care and attention he deserves. His skin is night and day from what it was originally.  A biopsy has confirmed that Jax has a genetic condition known as ichthyosis.  Right now he gets special baths a few times per week and daily oral medication.  His condition will likely need lifelong management.

Jax is kennel trained and does good with the other dogs (big and small) and lives with one cat.  His Jack Russell personality is coming out as he starts to feel better and he likes to chase the other dogs and tries to boss them around. He LOVES food.  He LOVES toys and he LOVES attention!  This spunky little boy is just waiting for his furever home!!

About Lost Angels Animal Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a non profit organization dedicated to saving the lives of unwanted dogs. We take our pets from kill shelters, owners who can longer care for them, and strays. They are completed vetted and then fostered in our homes until the perfect family can be found for them.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We show our adoptable dogs on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm at:

13127 North Dale Mabry Highway
Tampa, FL 33618
(located at the corner of N. Dale Mabry Hwy and Fletcher Ave.)

Not every foster family has the ability to show their dogs every weekend. Please contact the foster family at the email or phone number listed in the dog's biography to find out if they will be participating at the Petco on Saturday.

Our Adoption Process...

Filling out an application is an important first step in our adoption process. These can be downloaded from our website:

Meeting the dog you are interested in, asking questions and talking with the foster parent(s) about their foster pup is the next step. (can be combined with step 1 if you meet the dog at one of our many adoption events)

The foster parent will do a thorough check of your completed application (especially vet references) and possibly do a home visit with their foster dog before making a decision on their placement. (This is not 'first come, first served'. We only complete adoptions to homes that offer what is best & needed for our foster dogs; ie. a fenced yard, someone home longer hours with the dog, etc )
