Jackson County, Michigan (WLNS) – Thanks to the Jackson community, one furry friend met with his owner on Saturday.
Casper was rescued by the Jackson County Animal Control Division from the nearest river in the morning. He was hypothermic when he was rescued, and those who cured him worked hard to raise the furry guy’s temperature.
Slowly but surely, Casper’s temperature increased with body heat, blankets and drinking warm water.
Casper was very grateful, giving a lot of kisses to the Klinko correctional officer.
By the end of the day, Casper was reunited with his human father and was taken home to rest and return to normal life.
The Jackson County Animal Shelter thanked Animal Control for their quick response to getting Casper out of the icy water.
“It was a good day. Saved life. A community that works together for others, ”the shelter said in a Facebook post.
