2019 – Juice

Juice saved the life of a suicidal stranger by insistently bringing his recipient to a young man, who was hiding razor blades he’d put in his pockets to take his life. A former police officer, Ken knew this young man was in trouble. The juice spent several minutes licking the teenager and letting him pet her. As he began petting Juice, he revealed he had concealed the razor blades, and eventually handed them to Ken. The next day, Ken received a call telling him that the young man told the crisis center “had it not been for Juice, I would have killed myself yesterday”.

Today, the young man is recovering, and getting the help he needs.
