Joker 1 posted that he was having a seemingly urgent health issue. He was more concerned for the dogs than himself. Thread was nuked, so my assumption is that mods are engaging on getting assistance to him. He specifically asked that no one involve local authorities. I'm sure that members here will be willing to step up with help when a plan has been set up. For now he and the dogs need prayer.

We need positive info that he is being taken care of as well as the dogs.

Can we get that?

Joker, please let us know you are going to hospital and if you need the members here to step up and jump in to help your pups.  I know several members know you personally, especially on the dog transports.  Good folks want to help.

Did you see the wording on the thread title?   I am no doctor but it appears that he is having a medical emergency.

He needs help three or more hours ago.

We can't lose Joker to male stubbornness.

I'm on the phone with him now.  He is talking intelligibly and he seems ok.


But he's worried about the dogs.  He needs people  to step up and help. He has 22 dogs and they need homes.

He's not going to abandon his post and go to hospital. He cares more about the dogs than he does about himself.

So if you want to help him, adopt a dog. Maybe adopt two.

They're all good dogs. So please get a dog.

OK good I just reached out - I'm about 3 hours away and willing to help. I know roughly where but not exactly.

Hopefully he understands that the best thing for the dogs, is for him to get well.

If he goes to hospital for four days and leaves the dogs, they will starve. He needs:

1. Homes for the dogs, and/or
2. Someone to stay with the dogs while he gets treatment.

I have one of his recues laying in my living room right now and she's a wonderful, friendly dog.

I'm out of space, but I would encourage anyone considering getting a dog to take a look at his dogs. He's a damn good judge of dogs and their demeanor.

I'm sure many here can attest to the same.

This. He was pretty adamant that the local LE would not take kindly to his canine situation.

I have a Semper Fi rescue dog. I am not far from Joker. I am currently in a wheelchair and ZERO help on taking care of his dogs. If someone is willing to take a week off work and care for his dogs, I'll raffle a gun or 2 to help keep food on your table.  I'm deadass serious.

Ok to set up a gofundme that can be used for the dogs/joker?


Might be the easiest way to get him funds.

I dropped a note in the HTF since sometimes the two don’t always cross for members. Hopefully he will take this serious and get medical care. As a alumni of his program I don’t want to see anything put him down for the count.

My graduate says come on let’s get this done!
