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

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

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.

Spud

Spud

Spud spent a few days with a trial adoption, but his trial family quickly knew he was home, and he was officially adopted on April 25! We’re so happy for this beautiful boy, and we will continue to cover any and all medical bills related to his hip dysplasia, the original reason he was unlikely to make it out of the shelter. You can read his entire journey below.

Shelter

Spud arrived at the shelter last month as an owner surrender with suspected hip issues. He’s weak in his rear legs and needs to take breaks during walks when he starts to not feel well. When the Deity team went to meet him, he was apprehensive and shy at first, but his sweet and curious nature quickly came out. He enjoys being out and about and does very well around people and other dogs.

Freedom Ride

When it was time to leave, Spud was nervous but seemed excited for his next adventure.

Vet Visit

Spud was very brave during his vet visit. He welcomed all of the treats that came his way and allowed the veterinarian to do what he needed to do. It was confirmed that Spud has double hip dysplasia, which will require surgery. We’re hoping to get him in for one hip surgery in the next couple of weeks, then reassess to see if he needs to have surgery for the other hip. In the meantime, he’s been prescribed anti-inflammatories, joint supplements and plenty of love to help him.

Foster

Spud has settled in nicely to an amazing foster home that has other dogs to interact with. Spud loves going for walks and exploring new places, though his current conditions limit how many walks he goes on. He’s still very interested in treats and proves to be a very good boy to earn them.

Pupdate 3/6/22

Spud has moved in with a new foster family, and he’s getting more confident on his walks with the help of turkey.

Pupdate 3/29/22

Spud is still waiting on his forever family to find him, but in the meantime, he’s enjoying life at his foster home. He’s been going for walks and spending time with his foster siblings. He even went on a little hike, and the strength he has gained in his back end is amazing. He didn’t have to stop for breaks or anything! We also discovered he looks incredible in the color turquoise.

Pupdate 4/21/22

Spud is starting a trial adoption! His foster mom planned to send all of his supplies with him to his trial, except for the brand new bed that he never uses, so she decided to donate it to Deity. Spud did not like this idea one bit, and he hasn’t gotten off the bed since.

Pupdate 4/24/22

Spud’s trial adoption is going great. He is still hesitant on walks, but his love of tasty snacks has only become greater.

Forrest

Forrest was adopted on February 11, 2022! His forever home is a men’s sober living community. They absolutely adore him. We were sent these images with the caption “recovery for all” ❤️‍???? We will continue to cover any and all medical bills related to his leg injuries, the original reason he was unlikely to make it out of the shelter. You can read his entire story below.

Pupdates

Shelter

We heard about a large wolf dog in need at South LA Animal Shelter and we knew we had to help. Forrest was brought in as a stray who had been hit by a car. He’s very wobbly and only has one side to support himself with. He’s been in the shelter since January 31 on major pain medications for his leg injuries. Due to his expensive price point for medical care, he’s a scary case for rescues. He’s totally adoptable aside from these injuries which makes him a perfect dog for us. ♥

Freedom Ride

Forrest happily wobbled across the parking lot, his right ear flopping with every step. He was very cooperative getting into the car and settling down, although he couldn’t decide if he wanted to lay down and enjoy the ride or sit up and look out the window.

Vet Visit

During his vet visit, Forrest was as sweet as could be and let the vet do whatever he needed. It was as if he understood exactly what was going on and checked to make sure the vet was looking at the correct legs. It was confirmed that he has a fractured bone in his front right leg and a torn CCL in his back right leg. Today, he’s scheduled to have surgery to repair his fractured leg and will have surgery for the torn ligament in his back leg once his front leg has healed. We’ll keep everyone pupdated.

Peanut

Peanut

Peanut was officially adopted on March 3, 2022, and it’s safe to say he is absolutely loved by his forever family, and he’s living his best life. Because so many of you bought our 15/10 dog treat, we were able to sponsor his care. We will continue to cover any and all medical bills related to his many medical issues, the original reason he was unlikely to make it out of the shelter. You can read his entire journey below.

Pupdates

Shelter

Peanut has been living in a shelter for the past year, and the stress of his situation has led to him being very underweight. When our rescue partner Deity found him we discovered he had developed large calluses on his behind, and has several dental issues that need to be addressed. The fact that he’s still alive is a testament to how much the shelter staff believed in him.

Freedom Ride

When it was time for his freedom ride, Peanut was a bit nervous getting in the car and never fully settled onto the seat. He wasn’t sure where he was off to, but he was happy to be out of the shelter and along for the ride.

Vet Checkup

The vet confirmed what we thought about Peanut’s various medical issues. He has several worn and fractured teeth that will require cleaning and extractions. His skin issues will not need treatment other than a healthy diet and lifestyle. Our partner JustFoodForDogs has generously set Peanut up with a meal plan to help with his skin issues and to reach a healthy weight goal.

Foster

Peanut is doing so well in his foster home. He particularly enjoys snuggling on the couch with blankets, and tried his very first scallop and filet mignon. Absolutely loved it and has even put on a bit of weight. Our favorite piece of news is that this shy boy has started to happily wag his tail.
