Shelter

At only 8 weeks old, Princess Leia was surrendered to the South LA animal shelter by a breeder when she was born without front legs. Because so many of you purchased our 15/10 treat, we were able to rescue her in partnership with Deity, and sponsor her full medical care for the rest of her life.

Freedom Ride

Our sweet princess was still very new to this big world when she was rescued from the shelter, so she was quiet and nervous during her freedom ride.

Vet Visit

Princess Leia was vetted at the shelter when she arrived. She was given her first round of puppy vaccines, and will need two more rounds over the next five weeks until she’s fully vaccinated. Given her congenital birth defect, we plan to get her fitted for wheels to improve her mobility when she’s a little older, since she’s growing every day and would quickly outgrow them. Physical therapy will be considered in the future if needed. We’ll keep you all updated on her journey!

Foster

It didn’t take long for Princess Leia to come out of her quiet and nervous shell – only 24 hours post-rescue! She quickly started to relax, cuddle and wag her tail in her foster home. To help her eat and drink, the front of her body is propped up on a toilet paper roll. (She’s just so tiny!) Turns out she loves toys, and she does very well with other dogs and even tortoises. Her foster family is so in love with her, and have dubbed her “bouncy queen.”

Shelter

Penguin was brought into the shelter as a stray with obvious injuries to her left rear leg. She’s the friendliest girl, so we can only imagine that she just approached someone and asked for help with her hurt leg.

Vet Visit

During every one of Penguin’s trips to the vet, she required constant cookies and kisses. X-rays showed us that she had a transverse fracture to her rear left leg. This type of break occurs when the bone is broken at a 90-degree angle to the long axis, and usually when impact is made perpendicular to the bone with a large amount of force. We’re not positive what could have caused such a major impact, but we can guess she was potentially hit by a car. It was decided amputation would be the best course of action to relieve her of any leg pain.

Foster & Adoption

Penguin stayed with a foster family while she healed from surgery. Her loving foster home quickly turned into her new, loving family. They just loved her so much that they adopted her! She’s healing very well from her amputation, and she loves playing with her new, furry siblings.

Shelter

Manny arrived at the shelter as a stray with a severe skin condition. His exaggerated skin wrinkles make him look like an old man, but he definitely doesn’t act like it. Despite his discomfort, he is a happy-go-lucky pup and as sweet as can be. He met our rescue partner, Deity, in the play yard with a wagging tail and was interested in sniffing the grass and saying hello to his visitors.

Freedom Ride

When it was time to go, he snuck into the front seat to give kisses every few minutes to remind his rescuers how thankful he was.

Vet Visit

Despite his absolutely devastated facial expression pictured below, Manny did very well at the vet! He was friendly with every person he met, and he was excited to meet all of the other dogs present. He patiently waited by the door for the vet to arrive, and kindly allowed the vet to perform his exam. Manny even gave the vet tech some kisses. A skin scrape determined Manny’s condition is Demodectic Mange, a non contagious form of the skin disease. He will need weekly medicated baths and to follow up with a veterinary dermatologist for a treatment plan. We’ll of course keep everyone pupdated on his skin progress.

Shelter

This sweet pup arrived at the shelter as a stray with eye trauma, a broken tooth and several fractures in her little body. She has fractures in her pelvis, both of her hips, her tail and her two hind legs. The fact that she was still walking is really a testament to her will to live, hence her name: Brave Little Toaster.

Vet Visit

The vet visit was a scary experience for our Brave Little Toaster. Due to her many, painful injuries, the examination was not fun at all, and she may not have been as brave as she wanted to be. There’s no photographic proof though… so as far as we know she did very well while the vet performed their examination! Who’s to truly say? 😏

Her x-rays showed that her left hind leg has fractures located pretty high up in the bone, so she would need a femoral head osteotomy (FHO) and to remove the broken acetabulum – or the ball part of the ball and socket of the hip. This will create a “false joint” and allow her to use the leg with less pain. Her right leg, however, has too many fractures to count, so the best course of action would be amputation. She will also need her eye and broken tooth removed to relieve discomfort.

The plan is to get her rear end surgeries as soon as possible, but until then, she will be fitted for a mobility cart and undergo physical therapy to re-build her strength. We have no doubts that Toaster will have any problems overcoming these obstacles – she’s so strong.

Foster

Toaster is staying with a wonderful foster family that includes other dogs and a bunny – all of whom she loves and gets along with. We’ve been told Toaster is sweet as pie, so it’s no wonder that she’s made friends already. ❤

Shelter

Stevie arrived at the shelter as a stray with itchy, inflamed skin and missing fur all over her body. During her time in the shelter, her skin healed quite a bit, and much of her fur grew back, though she’s still itchy and inflamed in some areas. Despite her discomfort, Stevie is a happy, wiggly and friendly dog full of joy.

Freedom Ride

On her way out of the shelter, Stevie saw a pile of dog toys and specially selected a stuffed corn on the cob, which she carried with her like a best friend. She was very excited to take her new best friend on her special car ride.

Vet Visit

Due to her lingering skin issues, Stevie had an appointment with a dermatologist. She was started on a medicated shampoo and conditioner, ear flush and flea treatment. A full blood test was performed, as well as an allergy test – the results of which she’s still waiting on.

Foster & Adoption

Stevie was briefly fostered before officially being adopted on April 1, 2022! She has several new toys to play with, but she still likes to keep her corn cob nearby.

Pupdate 4/8/22

Stevie’s allergy test results came back, and she’s allergic to… well, a lot. There are two treatment plans available to Stevie: consistent injections that decrease over time, or medication every day for life. Her adopted family is considering the options and will make the best decision they see fit.

Pupdate 5/5/22

Stevie is looking much better, but her skin condition isn’t improving as quickly as her dermatologist would like. She’s developed diarrhea, and her dermatologist doesn’t feel that she’s made much progress on her medication. Another blood test was performed and her dermatologist will be changing her medication to suit her better if needed.

Shelter

Love arrived at the shelter as an owner surrender with severe dental issues and only one tooth. She’s a tiny, beautiful senior lady with a lot of love to give.

Freedom Ride

Being the quiet and calm lady that she is, Love did not make a fuss during her freedom ride from the shelter. She did, however, display her exquisite fancy paws for the journey.

Vet Visit

The vet discovered Love’s one remaining tooth is practically green with decay. In an ideal world, the tooth would be extracted, but Love is not strong enough for dental surgery. So for now, she’s been prescribed antibiotics for dental disease, and we’re waiting for her to gain some strength so she can get blood work done.

Foster & Adoption

Love went to a foster home who only spent a few hours with her before realizing she was home for good. That’s right – Love’s foster mom adopted her! And she’s treated like the absolute princess that she is.

Kitty

Kitty

Kitty was officially adopted on April 20! This sweet girl came to us with road rash and a severely fractured leg after being hit by a car. Now she’s healing very well in the arms of her new family who couldn’t love her more. We will continue to cover any and all medical bills related to her injuries, the original reason she was unlikely to make it out of the shelter. You can read her entire story below.

Shelter

Kitty was brought in to Chicago Animal Care and Control shelter by a good Samaritan. It was suspected she was hit by a car. She had a severely fractured hind leg. One Tail at a Time rescued her the day she came off her stray hold.

Vet Visit

She was assessed by OTAT’s medical staff. They found multiple fractures of her left rear leg. Her femur, tibia, and fibula all had unstable breaks meaning that she couldn’t stand on it and if she did, it risked the bones displacing and potentially perforating the skin. They placed a soft bandage to stabilize the leg and planned an emergency amputation to address her pain and minimize
the risk of bone puncturing the skin.

While changing her bandages, they noticed a large portion of her back was crusty under the hair due to road rash. She was started on antibiotics and her amputation surgery was cancelled due to high risk of infection.

Foster

Kitty has been in a lovely foster home since the day she was released from her stray hold. Another round of X-rays found bony remodeling and callous present in the femur with mild malalignment, as well as callous formation of tibia and fibula with mild medial malalignment. Meaning the bandages were keeping her bones aligned enough to allow them to knit back together!

Pupdate 3/24

An orthopedic assessment revealed all fractures healed well! The orthopedic surgeon does not recommend amputation at this time, but does strongly suggest physical therapy. She’ll start an aggressive 8 week course and reassess after that. We suspect she’ll need a lifetime of this specialized care, and because this is directly related to her initial injury, our foundation will be covering. The goal above represents her immediate medical care as well as the 8-week course of physical therapy.

Maggie

Maggie’s trial adoption went very well, and she was officially adopted on April 4! We will continue to cover any and all medical bills related to her arthritis and ear infections, the original reason she was unlikely to make it out of the shelter. You can read her entire story below.

Shelter

As soon as we saw Maggie’s wonky ear that matches our founder’s, we knew she was a 15/10. She arrived at the shelter as a stray back in December. It was an honor to break her out.

Freedom Ride

Maggie was very excited to get the show on the road, too excited to even eat the treats offered to her! She was a wonderful passenger.

Vet Visit

Maggie had plenty of love to give the veterinarian staff, and did very well as the doctor performed his evaluation. The vet discovered a double ear infection and pain in Maggie’s left hip when touched. She was prescribed antibiotics to clear up the ear infections and a bath as soon as possible lol

Pupdate 3/21/22

Maggie got a bath and a good brushing after her visit to the vet, and she seems happy and comfy. Her hip pain no longer seems to be an issue either. She’s friendly with other dogs and has her occasional bursts of energy, but she prefers a calm presence once her energetic moments are over. She understands basic commands, and she is quite smart. After quickly learning that water comes from sinks, she now puts her paws on the sink whenever she’s thirsty.

Pupdate 3/29

Maggie went to a trial adoption today!

Sunny Jones

Sunny Jones

Sunny Jones had a very rough start to life, but we’re happy to announce she was adopted on April 2 and she’s flourishing with her new family. She even has a new cat sibling that she loves and plays with! We will continue to cover any and all medical bills related to her intestinal issues, the original reason she was unlikely to make it out of the shelter. You can read her entire story below.

Shelter

Sunny Jones was surrendered to the shelter with a prolapsed rectum. Luckily, our partner, Deity, learned about her the same day and rescued her immediately for medical attention. She had emergency surgery that night to resolve the prolapse, and has since prolapsed three more times. The doctors suggested a more invasive procedure to shorten her colon for her best chance at recovery.

Freedom Ride

Sunny is a very calm little lady and made absolutely zero fuss about her departure from the shelter.

Vet Visit

Sunny seemed to understand that she was getting the help she needed and was very accepting of all the love and attention she received from the veterinarian staff.

A biopsy of her GI tract was performed to discover what had caused the prolapse. The results of the biopsy found inflammation in her GI, and she tested positive for Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD). The plan now is to treat her IBD with a very strict prescription diet, supplements and probiotics, which she will most likely need for the rest of her life to prevent future prolapses.

During her visit, the vet determined Sunny is just a puppy – only 3 months old! She’s had a very tough start to life, but she’s incredibly strong and we believe in her ❤

Foster

Little miss SJ has been recovering since her first surgery in a wonderful foster home. She discovered that she loves squeaky toys and laying in the sun. Her foster mom reports that she is a chill and social puppy that bonds quickly and soaks up love. Overall she is a little ray of sunshine like her name suggests.

Post-Surgery

Sunny Jones is doing great! She has an appointment scheduled for March 25, 2022 for a post-surgery update.

Phoenix

Phoenix

We are happy to announce that Phoenix was adopted on March 22, 2022 by Posie’s family ❤️ His foster flew him and his new wheels from LA to Salt Lake City! Then his new mom drove him down to Idaho to join their herd. He is doing wonderfully adjusting to his new wheels. He started electro-acupuncture on March 23, and the doctors believe he will eventually be able to use one of his legs! We will continue to cover any and all medical bills related to his injuries, the original reason he was unlikely to make it out of the shelter. You can read his entire story below.

Pupdates

Shelter

Phoenix arrived at the shelter as a stray with a paralyzed rear end, unable to use his back legs. Because he uses his front legs to drag himself around, he’s developed abrasions along his body and calluses on his paws and tail. Phoenix lived a difficult life before making it to the shelter, and he seemed so sad when our partners at Deity went to visit him. He may potentially need major surgery, and we think a mobility cart will not only help to prevent further injury to his rear paws but make him so much happier as well.

Freedom Ride

We got our first Phoenix smile during his car ride! And an impressively large yawn for such a small dog.

Vet Visit

During his initial vet visit, Phoenix received so much love from the staff and his sweet, energetic personality started to shine through. X-rays showed he has severe spinal damage paralyzing him from mid-back to tail, and the vet confirmed he has no feeling in his hind legs. The vet suspects Phoenix was hit by a car while living as a stray. Fortunately, he has a very strong upper body making him an excellent candidate for a set of rear wheels. He may need major surgery and further care in the future such as physical therapy or laser treatment, but we won’t know until later. We’ll keep everyone pupdated.
