This past April, things weren’t looking too good for Ravioli, a 4 mo. old German Shepherd puppy whose only sin in his short life was that he had been born in Pennsylvania in an Amish puppy mill. The Amish breeders decided that Ravioli couldn’t make them a profit, since he had been born with two toes missing from one foot, which caused him to walk with a severe limp. They were about to cut their losses and take him out back to shoot him (which is perfectly legal in PA), when Barbara Brook, a Mighty Mutts volunteer of 21 years, came upon the scene to save his life. Mill owners usually won’t give up their dogs to anyone for free, even though they plan on killing them, and therefore to save their lives, they must be purchased.

Mighty Mutts & Ollie's Place Animal Rescue has been saving dogs and cats in New York City since 1994. We want to continue the good work we're doing for NYC's neediest animals, but we can't do it without your help. Mighty Mutts & Ollie's Place have many animals in our care and even financially support some of our "special case" adopted animals for their whole lives! In addition, we do nightly feeding runs around the city to help feed the many stray and feral cats that cannot be immediately rescued. A recent loss of our food sponsor has put us in an urgent situation, we have a lot of animals that depend on us and as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, we depend on supporters like you to keep us going.

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes — including canine. A dog named Kiko took a bullet for his owner, lost his home and is now looking for his second chance.
Kiko made the news in 2012, when he saved his owner from a home invasion. A man masquerading as a UPS delivery driver tried to break into Kiko's home on Staten Island, New York. When Kiko tried to stop him, he was shot in the head. Luckily for Kiko, the bullet ricocheted off his skull, and he was miraculously able to make a full recovery, even though he is a senior dog.
That would have been the perfect happy ending, but, unfortunately, Kiko's owner ran into some hard times about two years ago. He was forced to move and couldn't take Kiko with him. Kiko saved his owner's life and home, and then suddenly found himself without a home at all.
Mighty Mutts learned of Kiko's plight, and in late 2014 Kiko was transferred into their care. "The first few weeks of adoption drives, it was obvious that Kiko was very confused, and just seemed to be looking for his owner," Jill Haynes of Mighty Mutts told The Dodo. "Initially we thought he was a little shut down, but after a bit of time we realized he was actually just completely deaf."
Mighty Mutts/Ollie's Place is in dire need of a food donor or corporate sponsor for our rescue cats. In addition to the many rescue kitties we have at Ollie's Place and in foster homes, Mighty Mutts feeds hundreds of cats yearly on a nightly feeding route as we work to get them to safety.
If you work for a pet food company, pet food distributor, pet retailer, corporate sponsor or are an individual that would like to financially sponsor our food program, please contact Michelle at 875-7538 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
