Pet of the Quarter

Captain Jack Weber (Captain) is one of six rescued fuzz kids belonging to Michaela Weber (VSS ED). Originally from Las Cruces, New Mexico, his journey to his new life began in May of 2021 in El Paso, Texas, when he was adopted by The Webers and driven across the Country to his new home in Birmingham, Alabama.

Captain is a mixed breed – everything but the kitchen sink, according to his DNA test, although his most dominant genes are Lab and St. Bernard. Technically that makes him a “Labernard” or a “St. Berandor” J You would not know it by looking at him, though. He is very stout and muscular but has super short legs!

Captain recently celebrated his 2nd birthday (March 24, 2022). Within his first year in our family, Cappy (as we affectionately call him) has been to 18 states already! He is a little road traveler and aspires to visit all, very soon.

He is closest to his oldest brother, Baxter, often shadowing him wherever he goes. He is a very easy-going fella, and only barks when he is playing with friends or sees that a car ride is in the works. He loves to snuggle – especially with mommy.

His favorite treat is peanut butter and his favorite beverage is Butterscotch Beer.

Okay, not really on the Butter Beer, but he sure looks cute next to one!

Captain loves water and playing “fight club” with his older brothers in the backyard.  He also lives for car rides, and enjoys riding up front because….well, he is El Capitan!

"With the help of VSS, you are empowered and encouraged to fight back and be pro-active. Then your conscience can be more at peace because you know you have taken some action to protest crimes inflicted on your loved one. It is sometimes your only consolation."

“The one takeaway for me in working with VSS is that it is a necessary organization. I know they are funded by grants and fundraisers but it’s something we need to make sure as a community that they have the funding needed because what they do for people in need doesn’t happen anywhere else. This is the only place that this happens and VSS helps with so many things.”

“VSS is there when the unthinkable happens.  When a police officer knocks on your door and gives you tragic news, VSS helps navigate the court system, which can be very confusing. VSS is compassion, caring, and commitment. Commitment to once justice is done that victims and their families can move forward with their lives.”

Jennifer Gregerson

Mayor, City of Mukilteo

“VSS has been our partner in recovery and healing and a key part in what makes Mukilteo Strong. VSS has been a trusted advocate for the victims that have suffered so much in the community.  I’m so grateful to VSS as our partner in strength.”

Jon Nehring

Mayor, City of Marysville

“VSS is there for people in their darkest hour. At a time when they need an advocate and friend, VSS steps in to fill that gap and help them begin their journey back to some sense of normalcy.”

“This thing about closure. There is never really closure in a victim’s life but VSS helps individuals to get closer to that and that’s critical because the cops and the judicial system just move on to another case because they don’t have time. Victims live with this trauma forever so VSS is with them for as long as they need the services. VSS takes the time, more importantly, they really care."
