Dogs You’ve Helped HEAL

Twelve year old Charlie has a neurological condition and was dragging himself along the floor forcefully. He had severe pain and cuts and abrasions from dragging himself. His owner, a war veteran from New York City reached out to the H.E.A.L. Foundation for help for his beloved companion. We arranged for Charlie to be examined at the Animal Medical Center in NYC and was given pain meds and an ointment. We also ordered a custom wheelchair that Charlie needed and he is now back to his old self again enjoying his golden years. ...

❤️Mistery and Watson😍 from Impound #436 and #41 at the Waterbury Municipal Dog Pound, CT to freedom, love and their very own names!! Mistery and Watson are sponsored by H.E.A.L. at Suruluna Animal Rescue's sanctuary in Pine Bush, NY! Both dogs need vaccinations and spay/neuter surgeries, which will be covered by us.

A Joey & Oreo HEAL Grant was made to the Dan Cosgrove Animal Shelter's medical fund, in order to help these four dogs escape certain death. The rescue efforts, vetting and transport from Texas was painstakingly coordinated by Zen Dog CT. All four dogs are the friendliest of pups and are in Connecticut now and available for adoption.

Together we can HEAL more. Love when rescues work together. 🙏🏻❤️Ace belongs to a disabled veteran, who saved him from a roadside in TX. He is dearly beloved by his family and got loose from his home and he was hit by not one, but two cars! Ace had a shattered femur and needed extensive and very expensive surgery. Our ♥Joey & Oreo HEAL Fund♥ donated over 50% of the surgery costs thanks to the advocacy efforts of The Jamie Bug & Tobster Foundation❤️🐶 Ace got his surgery and is now home! He is recovering very nicely and the vet is pleased with his progress. Ace's dad sadly had to sell his car 🚗 to pay the remainder of Ace's vet bill. He is one dedicated dad and we respect him for doing what needed to be done to help his baby! It is because of caring individuals like YOU that make it possible for us to post updates like this and for us to continue to help pets stay with their family!...

❤️Update on Trooper, the “miracle dog” with the chew toy stuck in his intestines for OVER a month…he went for a post-surgery check-up and the vet gave him a clean bill of health! This big boy is back home and loving life sans chew toys 😝 Trooper lost over 20lbs as his family desperately sought help with his surgery costs and were even willing to give him up to save his life😥. Our ♥Joey & Oreo HEAL Fund♥ stepped in to cover his surgery. As the vet operated on Trooper, she noticed how badly shredded and entangled the chew toy was in intestines. She called him a “miracle dog” and was surprised how Trooper had made it so far without his body shutting down. You helped us HEAL Trooper and gave him a second chance at life with his loving family! Thank you for all your support in helping us keep families and pets together!...

We helped Clyde have the emergency surgery he needed. Our ♥Joey & Oreo HEAL Fund♥ matched up to $1,500 of funds raised. A few nights ago, Furry Friends Foster and Rescue Inc and Project Precious Rescue (PPR) worked together to save Clyde. He lived most of his short 1 year old life being used as a breeder dog, left bleeding for months without help. PPR brought him into their rescue. He needed urgent, life-saving surgery to repair a prolapsed urethra. Clyde has already been let down once - thank you for helping us HEAL him and give him a second chance at life! ...

Our mission is ♥HEAL🐾. Humanity. Empathy. Animal Love. Our #JoeyAndOreoHEALFund operates under our “Humanity” mission where we help address human issues underlying animal suffering and homelessness. 😥 A few days ago, Marie R. our board member and volunteer extraordinaire was approached by an acquaintance for help to get his senior dog euthanized as he could not afford it. He’d had Samantha, a large breed GS mix, since she was a puppy and it was time to let her go. 💔 We helped cover the bill to let Samantha go over the rainbow bridge. This is what her owner wrote “Thank you ever so much. I do appreciate it. This hasn't been a good year. I lost my home my wife. My marriage. My dog. Again thank you for showing me mercy. Have a good day.”😥💔 That afternoon this beautiful rainbow appeared in honor of Samantha. RIP sweet girl! You are very much missed. ❤️...

Today we had the honor to drive Simon for the first leg of his freedom journey to The Devoted Barn. Simon had been incarcerated at the Guilford, CT animal shelter for almost two years for PROTECTING his home. It was a bittersweet moment for Simon’s family, who never gave up on getting him freed. ❤️💔 Simon was THRILLED to get out of the shelter and jumped right into the car. But when he saw his family walk away he started howling. It was truly, truly heart wrenching!!! The same old story of dogs being taken away from their owners under CT’s antiquated animal control laws. #JusticeForRose #FreeKatoAndKleo and now #SaveSimon. So many others we don’t know about and cannot advocate for….WHEN WILL THIS STOP? WHEN?? 👿 SIMON IS FINALLY FREE!! We should be happy, but our tears haven’t stopped at the unfairness of it all. 😥We wish Simon the best on his journey. THANK YOU to Coco Ring, who spearheaded this effort to #SaveSimon. Ken Bernhard of Cohen and Wolf, P.C. Most of all to the loving and so very dignified Dr. Young and family, who fought so hard for Simon and today let him walk away from them to freedom. ...

WE HAVE OFFERED TO MATCH UP TO $1,500 (50%) OF THIS FUNDRAISER. Please share and donate, so Connect A Pet New England can continue their life saving work!!! We’re proud and honored to support this rescue and its awesome founder Cecelia Blake, who WALKS THE TALK and never shys away from dogs in need. 😇Cecilia stepped up to rescue two TBD dogs from the Waterbury, CT shelter, when we highlighted the abysmal conditions at the pound. SHE ALSO HELPED US REHOME #CeeCeeAndCeaser, two bonded pit bulls that we rescued from certain death when their elderly owner Andrew got dementia. 😥 Bottomline….Connect-A-Pet helps dogs that no one else does. They recently rescued 3 medical cases from NYCACC who ended up costing over $10,000 and have raised very little funds. Sadly, they will not be able to save any more dogs with medical needs till the vet bills are paid off. Please help! Thank you!!🙏❤️ #CeeCeeAtHEAL #CeasarAtHEAL #JoeysElderPaws #JEP #JoeyAndOreoHEALFund #HumanityEmpathyAnimalLove #HEALNow #WeRescueSeniorBondedandPitbullTypeDogs #KeepingPetsOutofShelters #TeachHEAL #HumaneEducationTeachHEAL #TeachHEALBuildingUpOurYouth ...

How we love such happy endings!!❤️🥰🙏 Mega was surrender to the Hempstead Animal Shelter when his owners were evicted.💔 A big, dark colored, senior pitbull, Mega WAITED for his forever family for almost a year.

No “i” in “rescue”…takes a village to "change the world for that one animal"! Peter, a tiny helpless puppy, was tossed like trash. He had an huge infected wound with hookworms on his little body. He’s been treated and is safe now and on his way to CT. His vet bill was covered by our “Joey & Oreo HEAL Fund”. Thank you to Zendog CT, the vet team at Lindale Pet Hospital in Texas, the anonymous rescuer who picked Peter from the street and took him to the vet, and all our donors and supporters. YOU MAKE IT POSSIBLE!  ...
