Luckily, her prayers were quickly answered.
“We all were online and sharing stories, and I came across Donna’s post,” Lori Lowrimore, a board member of Friends of Eden Animal Rescue, told The Dodo. “I have a very soft spot for the seniors — we all do, so when we saw it, I contacted the shelter to ask some questions.”
But Lowrimore wasn’t the only person who saw the post. Her 23-year-old son Trevor had been contemplating getting a dog, and after coming across Jasper’s pictures, he knew the time was right.
“He called me from work and said, ‘Mom, I’ll help the dog,’” Lowrimore said. “When we knew we had a foster lined up, there was no question I was going to get Jasper.”
