Dogs You’ve Helped HEAL

Gigi was a breeding machine for her owners, overbred and chained and then discarded like trash. This sweet 5-year old was rescued by our rescue partners BARC-CT, who step for so many. A month after her rescue, Gigi was rushed to VCA with internal bleeding and needed life-saving surgery. A grant from our Joey & Oreo HEAL Grant Program covered part of the costs for Gigi’s surgery. Gigi is doing great and is now in her forever home!! ♥ ...

We helped Stacks, the sweetest, gentlest senior who was ❌Urgent❌ with trauma to his leg and jaw (drools uncontrollably), growth on his neck and tummy and ear infections with a Joey & Oreo HEAL Grant. He is now safe with Destiny's Hope Animal Rescue and our grant covered $1,000 of his $1,525 bill❤️🙏 (https://www.facebook.com/groups/190039821025021/permalink/2994971567198485/) We hate to say no and do our due diligence to help the most neediest of cases. Payments are paid directly to the vet for for pet parents and/or on proof of vet receipts to 501c3 rescues meeting our criteria. Thanks to your support and generosity, we are truly able to make a difference and save lives. Thank you for your help! #HEALFoundationUSA #HumanityEmpathyAnimalLove #HEAL #JoeyAndOreoHEALGrants...

We see the worst and best of humans in animal rescue. 💔❤️The very lows and highs. It’s the highs that keep us animal advocates and rescuers going. How we’d love to save them all. But so many times we’re too late or just not able too. It truly takes a village, all the behind the scenes action and coordination to save a life!! In this case it was an awesome team of animal advocates who went above and beyond to bring four dogs to safety. Four dogs who’d spent years behind shelter walls to go to a sanctuary, which was sadly closing down. Third time is a charm for these pups 🙏🏻 We could only have done this together. No “I” in “RESCUE”. Happy new life to Jordan and Hunter safe with @ulstercountycanines! To Jaidyn safe with Furry Friends Foster and Rescue Inc! To Maisie safe with her amazing foster! THANK YOU to everyone involved in this almost Herculean task! ...

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. ...

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! ...
