THIS IS OLIVER - HIS TAIL IS STILL WAGGING! 

***FUNDS & A FOSTER HOME NEEDED***

BSO brought him to Hollywood Animal Hospital last night.  

He had been stabbed multiple times, stuffed in a suitcase and left at an abandoned house somewhere in Broward County.

The general opinion is that he will be OK.  He is in the best care and best place possible with Dr. Patterson and the team of doctors at VCA Hollywood.  It’s going to be a long "sore" road for Oliver, but it’s all uphill from here.

Ollie has been turned over to Grateful Paws, and we are asking for donations to help cover his Vet bills –

AND… we are looking for a foster or adoptive home for him  for when he is released from the hospital.  Grateful Paws will be responsible for his follow-up Vet visits and meds, etc. but a hospital environment is never as good as a loving home for “healing”.  (Broward County)

He is terrier mix, about a year old and the staff says in spite of it all... he is as sweet as can be.   He is to be neutered and micro-chipped as soon as medically possible –

*** Please know  we are a 501c3 charitable organization and your donations can be a tax deduction on your Federal income taxes.

We will post updates on our website and on Facebook.

It is with VERY heavy heart that we report that Ollie went into cardiac arrest last night and has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Five doctors, including a cardiologist
tried to revive him for more than an hour - to no avail. Because it is an open criminal investigation, a Necropsy must be performed. His doctors were confident he would pull through this, but it would seem that his body had enough and shut down.

There is already a considerable reward being offered through Crimestoppers for information but we are advised police still do not have any valid leads as to the monster who did this...

Oliver did not deserve this - but the one consolation in all this, is he did not die alone and was surrounded by people who cared.

Thank you ALL for your kind words and support. Monies donated will be applied to Oliver's bills and to cover the vet and hospital costs of other animals in need. Thank you again.

PRAYERS & BEARS~~

We are more than blown away at the support and generosity from all over the United States, England and Norway for Oliver. Thank you everyone.

Ollie is still on the mend at VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital in Hollywood, FL - in a great deal of pain and pretty swollen today, which is/was expected.
He is holding his own and is going to make it but the road to recovery will be slow. 50+ stab wounds… We visited him this morning just after a bandage change.
He was heavily sedated so we didn’t stay long. And it is sweet that someone attached a hand-written prayer to his cage and stuck a teddy bear in there to keep him company.

We’ve received hundreds of emails and calls with offers to foster or adopt… and it is heartwarming to know so many people care.
Until we can assess his temperament and personality, we cannot determine which home he will go to when released from the hospital.
But we are accepting applications --- Feel free to download an application from our website: www.gratefulpaws.org

AND… we just learned that PETA is donating $5,000 to CRIMESTOPPERS as a reward for information about the monster who did this.
It is virtually impossible for us to acknowledge every phone call and email, but we will try. In the meantime, we will post “Ollie updates” on this page –
as well as our Facebook page – Grateful Paws Dog & Cat Rescue, Inc.

Thanks again everyone. Ollie sends his love.
