We adopted Orly, a Labrador/Pit Bull mix from For the Love Of Dogs, an organization in Ossining, New York that focuses on finding dogs for hard-to-adopt rescues.  Orly came into our lives in January of this year.  She had been badly treated - having a scar running down her back and smaller scar on top of her head.

Despite her mistreatment, Orly is a special creature with only love to give for all people.  She has an adorable wiggle to her body when she is excited.  She adopted us the moment she met us, and we spent several visiting sessions with her and the staff of For the Love of Dogs, learning how to care for her.  We've become a family thanks to Orly.

The staff told us upfront Orly requires a double-hip replacement. The operation is scheduled for March 29, 2019. We knew it would be expensive and that the rescue organization would have a hard time getting Orly the treatment  she needs.

We'd love to be able to give back to For The Love Of Dogs  in addition to getting our sweet puppy healed.  They've arranged for Orly's surgery to be at a discount from a local veterinarian they work with. 

Whatever contribution you make to Orly's surgery costs will be used for her treatment.  Anything you donate above and beyond the cost will go as a donation to the rescue organization For the Love Of Dogs so other puppies like Orly may find their forever home.

Thanks for taking the time to read our story.  We hope the attached images of Orly will convey a fraction of the special creature that she is and the joy she brings to our lives.  

Gratefully,

Team Orly

Post-surgery update: we have good news to report!
We brought Orly home and are making her as comfortable as possible while she recuperates.

The veterinarian informed us that Orly's surgery went well. We were concerned to hear that our sweet pup's condition was actually worse than anticipated. The veterinarian was amazed that Orly had been so active and energetic, given the state of her hips. Orly doesn't have any marathons in her future. However she should otherwise return to her playful, lovable self in a few weeks.

The veterinarian also very kindly discounted Orly's surgery. We'd like to say a special thanks on her behalf to everyone else who supported this cause. Please take some time to visit the For The Love Of Dogs rescue ( www.fortheloveofdogsrescue.org/) to learn more about the good work that they do.
