JASPER COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The Jasper and Jones County Sheriff's Department teamed up to save a baby raccoon over the weekend. 

A Jasper County deputy's dog was found playing with "Newt," the baby raccoon. The deputy knew that Jessica Welborn, who works for Jones County Sheriff Alex Hodge, was good with animals. 

Welborn was able to save Newt and give him a much needed bath. 

The Jasper County Sheriff's Department posted the tale on their Facebook page, crediting the strong relationship between the departments as to why the rescue was made possible.
