A new home for Jaxson the Gator
This campaign is designed to raise funds for the travel and habitat of Jaxson the alligator. Jaxson is an 8 foot alligator found in the backyard of a Los Angeles home. She is at least 40 years old. The Los Angeles Animal Services has asked Colorado Gators to go out to LA and get Jaxson and give her a good home. Since she is smaller and older than some of our other females, she cannot live with them, and must have her own habitat.
Moving Jaxson into her permanent habitat tomorrow! Thanks again to everyone for your support and helping spread the word. Pictures coming soon.
Making progress on Jaxson's new home! Dried up a fish pond to dig out deeper and line.
Wow! We have gotten over $10,000 in donations to help with Jaxson's transport and new habitat! With the cash donated, we are over our $12,000 goal! The big donors have given us permission to let everyone know that 95% of this money has come from Jaxson's family in Los Angeles. Unlike many of our rescues, Jaxson was well cared for and legal when she was first purchased in the 1970's. Unlike many of our rescues, Jaxson's family has stepped up to help us with the costs of transport, habitat, and future care. Huge thanks to Laura Mattson, Ron Gorecki, and the rest of the clan for all the help! We will continue posting photos as we get Jaxson's new habitat built.
