Success Stories

Lexa

Little Lexa spent her young doing nothing but giving birth to puppies so her owner could profit...that is until she started having stillborns and was no longer useful, so Lexa was discarded. During that period her medical issues were neglected. She has such serious issues with her airway that she has to be kept calm at all times because any excitement causes her to pass out from lack of oxygen. After surgery Lexa did amazing. She is now so full of life and is finally getting to live a life that we all wanted for her. Soon after her surgery Lexa's foster mom decided to make her a full time member of her family. It’s a match made in heaven. Not only does Lex get the best of love, her new mom’s heart is made full again. She enjoys playing chase and hide and seek with her feline brother, going to grandmas house to play with her two shelties, car rides, and acting like a bunny (she hops with excitement).

Star

Star was seized from a raid on a puppy mill in Howard County Maryland. The owners of the puppy mill were charged with over 100 counts of animal cruelty and 54 dogs were seized from the property. She was found living in a basement in deplorable conditions and had suffered abuse, neglect and starvation before being seized and then released to the care of Northeast Boston Terrier Rescue. Star had a badly broken leg that was left untreated for at least 2 days and needed emergency surgery to be plated. She also suffers from a double ear infection, a heart murmur and pyoderma. She has now medically cleared and ready for adoption! She has very specific requirements so she will need a very special adopter. Please read the attached post and if you are interested in adopting Starr you can apply at http://nebtr.org/fosters.html

Jaycee

Jaycee was the poor pup that was reportedly struck by a vehicle, beaten in the head with a heavy object, and shot in the back. She was taken in by MAX'S ANIMAL RESCUE at the request of the ACO. Her front left arm was contracted, fractured, and uninnervated, so it needed to be amputated. She was found malnourished, heartworm positive, hookworm, flea and tick infested and had a bullet lodged by her right hip. Jaycee's amputation has now healed and she's at a healthy weight! Up next is the surgery to remove the damaged eye and the bullet. We sent in funds to Jaycee’s vet to help her on her journey to recovery. She’s a happy girl despite it all and is doing very well!

Woody

Woody was picked up by Berlin Animal Control and it was clear he was neglected. He was severely underweight, arthritic, had a terrible infection in his mouth and was in need of major dental surgery. Woody was fostered through Monkey Pack Rescue and once the infection cleared Woody was able to get the dental surgery he needed to be pain free. The Little Oliver Foundation was able to provide funding for Woody's surgery and we are happy to report that he is now a healthy weight, pain free and happy!

Achilles

Achilles is a sweet pittie who was dumped in a trash heap and left to die. His face and muzzle had been ripped to shreds and a multitude of new and old bite wounds were present, indicating he was most likely a bait dog. He also had an old break to his leg that was never treated. Despite all of his injuries he manages to still wag his tail! The Little Oliver Foundation assisted with funds towards the 3 facial reconstruction surgeries Achilles had. He was fostered through Furever Bully Love Rescue and was visited every day by his foster mom in the hospital and they become inseparable once Achilles was released. His foster family fell madly in love with him and ultimately decided to officially become his forever family!

Little Bobby

Little Bobby is a sweet 5 year old Shih Tzu mix who suffered from GI disorders as a direct result of the owner refusing to follow veterinarian instructions. Then when poor Little Bobby was found screaming in pain and unable to walk the owners dumped him at the local vet to be euthanized rather than treated. Luckily the owner agreed to surrender Little Bobby and the vet contacted the local shelter, who in turn contacted Monkey's Pack Rescue who took Little Bobby in. Monkey's Pack contacted The Little Oliver Foundation and asked for assistance in funding Little Bobby's medical care. His surgery was successful and after fully recovering Little Bobby was adopted by his foster mom! He's now living the life he deserves!

King

King was relinquished from his owner when it was reported to Norwich Animal Control that the owner had been seen beating and starving King. When he was found, King was very weak, could barely walk and only had a body score of 1! Once in the care of CT Animal House, King received vet care, diagnostic testing and lots of TLC and he was able to gain a little weight. Unfortunately, King still suffered from GI issues even though he was on a special diet and further diagnostics was needed to find out why. CT Animal House asked The Little Oliver Foundation for assistance and we provided funds for Kings continued medical care. This poor pup has endured so much in his life, but he continues to wag his tail and give kisses.

Luna

Luna came to CT Animal House with a spinal injury to her tail region. Though Luna's history was unknown, the vet felt that the injury is consistent with being swung around by the tail. The rescue had done months of steroid treatment, acupuncture and cold laser therapy in the hopes that she would heal, but unfortunately she continued to have continence issues due to the damage. After seeing a neurologist, it was determined that Luna would need an MRI to see what is truly going on and if surgery is an option. CT Animal House asked The Little Oliver Foundation for assistance so we provided funds for Luna's continued care.
