- Florida, USA -
The sweet furbaby in the pictures below is alive thanks to a Good Samaritan who jumped in the St. Mary’s River to rescue her after she was cruelly and senselessly thrown from the Blue Bridge, on Route 17 at the Florida-Georgia line.
The incident happened on Thursday, September 17.
The Good Samaritan, who is still unidentified, jumped in the water without thinking twice and rescued this precious life that some evil person was trying to end!
Until Saturday, September 26, the sweet soul has been the care of Nassau County Animal Services in Yulee, where staff named her Queso.
Queso was examined by veterinarians at First Coast No More Homeless Pets where she was also spayed.
But Queso has now left the shelter to begin her new life in her new furever home with mom Kate and dad Joe (last picture).
Mr. and Mrs. Catania drove six hours from Broward County to adopt the sweet 11-week-old terrier mix whom they have renamed Bleu.
The day before, they went shopping for a bed and a lot of toys.
These wonderful people are still mourning their furbaby named Shea, a 12-year-old Labrador who passed away this Summer.
Mr. Timothy Maguire, the director of Nassau County Animal Services said that Queso/Bleu is very lucky to be alive.
He said: “With the currents that go through underneath that bridge and how small the puppy is, I’m surprised that they made it.”
He wants to thank the Good Samaritan and said: “We’d love to speak to him if he’s available to talk. We understand if he wants to remain anonymous, but it was a great thing he did. We appreciate it, and I’m sure the puppy does.”
While there is gratitude and appreciation for the Good Samaritan, there is also a lot of anger and it is important to find the scum who threw an innocent life from a bridge.
If you have any information related to this case, please come forward and speak up.
Please call the Nassau County Animal Services at (904) - 530 - 6150. Thank you!
