MEMPHIS, TN -
(WMC-TV) - A dog is recovering after being rescued from freezing conditions thanks to an Action News 5 viewer.
Now, there is a long list of people who have inquired about the dog, which is now named Jasper, but the first to fill out an application will get first dibs on adoption.
"They think he's going to be just fine," said Alexis Amorose, Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County. "And he's here at the humane society now being taken care of by our staff."
Humane society workers do not think Jasper would have lived through the night, tangled to a tree, standing in near-freezing water, with his collar rubbing his neck raw.
A neighbor says she called the Memphis Animal Shelter but got no response.
"The first time they understood there was a dog that was in distress was when we got a call from your TV station," said Memphis Chief Administrative Officer George Little.
City officials say they did take a call the day before but it was about a stray dog on the street.
"When we have specific information we're going to get right out there on that but if we have general information we're going to get a truck in that area and look for a stray dog," said Little.
Jasper is on his way to complete health, then ultimately adoption, though justice may be elusive.
"If and when we can identify who an owner is, we're always gonna prosecute those situations when it's appropriate," said Amorose. "In this particular case there's not really a good way to determine who put that on the animal or how he was allowed to get like that."
If you see an animal that needs help, city officials suggest calling its new 311 line, but they request as much specific information about the animal as possible.
