Meet Olivia! On October 7th, 2022, Dumaguete Animal Sanctuary received a report about a weak and emaciated dog lying in a creek. The rescue volunteers quickly went to assess the situation, and what they found was heartbreaking. Olivia, a small dog who had just given birth, was in desperate need of rescue. She was literally starving to death.
Despite being weak and unable to walk, Olivia was extremely scared. She had tested positive for heartworm, and her platelets and red-blood cell count were dangerously low. The rescue team knew they had to act fast to save her life.
Olivia was brought back to the shelter where she had to undergo a 14-day isolation period to ensure she was free of rabies. The team worked tirelessly to nurse her back to health. She was given the care and attention she desperately needed, and with time, Olivia began to heal.
Olivia’s story is a reminder of the importance of animal rescue and the dedication of those who work tirelessly to save the lives of helpless creatures. Despite being abandoned by a heartless creek, Olivia was given a second chance at life. Now, all she needs is a loving family to adopt her and provide her with the forever home she deserves.
We urge you to share Olivia’s story and help us find her the perfect family. Let us come together to give this sweet dog the happy ending she deserves. And let us remember that every animal, no matter how small, deserves to be treated with kindness and compassion.
