On a cold night in February Francis was found in a box on the side of the road. They thought he was dead until they noticed his faint breathing…
They took him home first, then in the morning he was taken to CARA the local animal shelter. It was there that they discovered he was in a deep coma.
CARA did everything they could to revive him. There was a party for him on Valentines Day where he had lots of visitors.
Francis had many visitors, including Fluffy
Many people left valentines day messages for Francis filled with warmth and good wishes.
A miracle happened, he opened his eyes and started to make sounds, he was finally awake.
Francis needed physical therapy to regain control of his muscles. He started with his eyes and neck, he was now able to lift his head.
Then it came time for him to stand on his own feet.
Francis then began to walk, his progress was amazing.
A celebratory party was essential to a full recovery, of course
Francis even went to fashion shows.
He loves to play games.
Getting some much needed sleep.

CARA decided to keep Francis instead of finding him a new home, so that he may serve as a mascot in order to raise funding for other animals in need. He travels to special events to raise this much needed funding.
