Facts about BlackJack

  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)

BlackJack is a senior coonhound, surrendered by his owner about a year ago, because he could no longer provide health care for BlackJack. BlackJack is heart worm positive and is too senior to receive the immiticide injections we normally use to cure the heart worm infection. So he has been receiving the "slow method" of ridding him of the infection. BlackJack still needs at least six more months of heart worm pills just to test negative, and will need to have an Interceptor pill each and every month faithfully to prevent him from re-infection. He is a gentle, friendly, and congenial boy, still quite active and healthy otherwise. He would be so happy to have a forever home, where he has a soft snuggle bed, a place to run, and lots of love. Please consider giving BlackJack a forever home, so he won't have to live in a kennel in his golden years!

About Red Sky Rescue

About Our Shelter...

Red Sky Rescue is a private 501c3 not-for-profit dog rescue organization in Jackson County, Indiana. We receive the stray and homeless dogs who are picked up by local animal control, and work to find new homes for these abandoned dogs. We are committed to giving every dog a chance for a good life with a new responsible owner. We are a limited intake facility, and we never euthanize healthy, adoptable pets due to lack of space. We explore every resource in finding appropriate homes for all the dogs we rescue. We work tirelessly in our community to promote early spay/neuter of family pets, to reduce the number of homeless pets who end up at our shelter.
