Local Marine and family receive financial assistance from FACE for injured puppy

Jamie Davidson and Jericho

Local hero Marine Jamie Davidson and expectant wife, Jacklyn, are receiving emergency financial support from animal welfare non-profit FACE Foundation. The Davidsons’ three-month-old Australian shepherd, Jericho, was struck by a car and seriously injured in front of the family home. After a nearly-fatal wounding in Afghanistan, Jamie Davidson received a second chance at life, and now his beloved Jericho is in equal need of saving.

Last June, Jamie Davidson was shot in the arm while serving in Afghanistan. The bullet ricocheted in his body after its exit was hindered by his bullet-proof vest; the bullet then punctured his lung, broke four ribs, and settled in his stomach. Jamie Davidson died twice on the operating table, but he was resuscitated successfully. His memory was undermined due to extensive blood loss, and, currently, he undergoes both physical and mental rehabilitation. The stress of Jamie’s war injury, Jacklyn’s pregnancy, and now little Jericho’s life-threatening accident has left the Davidson family in desperate need of the community’s assistance.

In efforts to raise money for Jericho’s surgeries, the Davidsons are selling all of their expendable possessions; halfway to their goal, the family still needs help. While FACE Foundation is granting funding to the family, it is not too late for the community to provide assistance. FACE relies solely on generous donations from the public. Donations for Jericho Davidson may be placed with FACE via www.face4pets.org.
