A shelter staff member writes: Meet Jake. This poor 11 year old boy was found as a stray with an extra-large mass of is chest area. Even though he does have that extra weight on his chest area he still is a super sweet boy that is looking for an extra special person with an extra big heart. Jake will need surgery as soon as possible to rule out that the mass is benign.
