On a cold night in Febuary 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 needed physical therapy to regain control of his muscles. He started with his eyes and neck, he was now able to lift his head.
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.
