In 2003, police officials discovered an abandoned greyhound in a garden shed. The dog was dirty, abused, and was almost dead from starvation. They took the female dog to Geoff Grewcock’s Nuneaton and Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary, which is well-known for providing a haven for stray animals.
When Geoff Grewcock and the other employees at the sanctuary first met the dog, all they wanted to do was nurture her back to health and earn her trust. It wasn’t easy at first, but their efforts eventually paid off. They started calling her Jasmine, and she is now in better condition and more trusting than she was before.
Jasmine remained well-behaved. But after a while, she began greeting all of the animals who came to the shelter. She would always peek into their cage and give them a warm kiss, like what a mother does.
Jasmine has a special ability to calm animals’ anxiety while helping them adjust to their new environment. Geoff Grewcock also shared that they once found abandoned pups on a nearby railway. They took them in, and Jasmine was there, eager to make them feel welcome and at ease.
Among the orphaned and abandoned animals she helped are five fox cubs, four badger cubs, 15 chicks, eight guinea pigs, two stray puppies, and 15 bunnies. After some time, Jasmine met Bramble, an 11-week-old fawn they discovered in a nearby field. As soon as Bramble arrived at the sanctuary, the dog immediately cuddled her to keep her warm and comfortable.
According to Geoff Grewcock, they are inseparable. They would always stroll around the sanctuary and have fun together. Bramble would return to the wild once she was mature enough.
Nonetheless, Jasmine would continue to look after her till that day arrived. Hopefully, Jasmine won’t be as lonely when this happens, and she will continue to look after the other animals who visit the sanctuary.
