SHERMAN OAKS—Ollie, an 8-year old cocker spaniel was surrendered to The Pet Doctors of Sherman Oaks on Friday, March 8. Ollie is being treated for multiple infections.

Animal rescue volunteers contacted officials with the Los Angeles Animal Cruelty Task Force to investigate the animal abuse ABC 7 News reported. When vets examined the animal’s injuries, they found maggots crawling over his belly and scalded urine stains. Ollie also had a missing jaw and he was severely starved. A normal cocker spaniel weighs between 26-27 pounds, where Ollie came into the vet at a mere 14 pounds.

Leave No Paws Behind, Inc. is a non-profit that rescues special needs and senior animals. They adopted Ollie.

Toby Wisneksi, CEO and co-founder of the non-profit posted on Facebook, “He has got a will to live and you know what, as long as he wants to keep going, we are going to keep going with him, and we are going to be here with him every step of the way, and we are going to assure him and promise him [that] it’s never going to happen again, never again.”
