This gentle girl’s body was slowly being taken over by cancer, but thanks to the kind-hearted people at Animal Aid Unlimited India, she beat the odds.

It all began with a call from a local who noticed a large bloody mass on Olivia’s head. From the moment the rescuer approached Olivia, she was nothing but sweet. She didn’t run or hide and accepted his peace offering (aka food!). This girl clearly wanted a friend and even allowed him to pick her up. She was transported to the safety of the sanctuary for an evaluation and biopsy.


It was discovered that Olivia had a transmissible venereal tumor. Lucky for this little lady, after six weeks of chemotherapy, she was completely cured! And the best part? Underneath the tumor was a fully functioning eye with no damage! With a little kindness, medical treatment, and time, Olivia was a whole new dog!
