Doc Jordan


Recommended Posts

He helped us get our adoption program going. He loved greyhounds... He was the track vet for YEARS... long before greyhound adoption found a foothold in the Panhandle. When we started the adoption program at JCKC, he did everything he could to help us succeed.


I'll NEVER forget the night he called me about NINE dogs from Pensacola because a kind-hearted woman took them from the vet's office where they were about to be PTS and loaded them in her van, thinking she'd drive them to her all-breed rescue group in NC. NINE dogs loose in a van with a single driver! She got to Monticello and somehow found Doc Jordan. He took the woman to his home for the night and held the dogs in the vet clinic until I could find a place to stash them.


He was a gruff ol' guy and fought his cancer with a vengance... but, it finally felled him. We'll miss him terribly. :weep:cry1


His family has asked for contributions to our group in lieu of flowers... He's still helping the greyhounds! :wub:

I'm sure that there are a lot of greyhounds that will be there to say hello. I'm sure that Doc Jordan will be helping one of the volinters from QCGA. His name was Gary and he lived for greyhounds also.
