Sweet eleven-year-old Oliver is a Shih Tzu / Yorkie mix who his dad lovingly calls his “Shorkie.” When Ollie developed a noticeable lump near his pelvis, his dad knew he needed to get him to the veterinarian. Ollie was diagnosed with a perineal hernia and needed surgery. Ollie’s dad had savings that he could use for this very thing, but he just did not have enough for the full cost of the surgery. He had been unemployed for a few months and was using government assistance for his basic needs.

Fortunately, Oliver’s veterinarian referred his dad to the FACE Foundation for assistance and with the help of The Grey Muzzle Organization, Ollie received treatment and will continue his happy and hernia-free life with his dad!
