Jasmine had been abandoned before she arrived at the Nuneaton and Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary, UK back in 2003.Jasmine-The-Surrogate-Mom-Animal-Shelter-Greyhound

The stray Greyhound had been found dumped in a garden shed and was cold, filthy and malnourished. Shivering and desperate for food, she needed several weeks under the special care of the staff to nurse her back to full health.

And it seems as if the kindness and patience shown to her back then, left a long lasting impression.

During 8 years of living at the sanctuary, Jasmine cared for over 50 animals. She would take on the role of a surrogate mother, nursing them with affection as soon as they arrived.

Jasmine held no prejudice against the animals she would care for. The list of stray waifs nursed by her included several puppies, foxes, a fawn, 4 badger cubs, 15 chicks, 8 guinea pigs, 15 rabbits, a deer and a goose.
