A dog was found in the cold on Friday night, and she was brought to a local animal shelter in DeSoto.
The dog’s name is Jessica. She was found south of Winterset with another dog. AHeinz57 organizers wrote on social media, saying that they don’t believe the dog would have made it another night out in the cold.
Jessica is being hospitalized at IVRC due to a horrible upper respiratory infection causing her to have great difficulty breathing. AHeinz is asking for donations to help cover the dog’s medical expenses.
