Dr. Oz’s team saved their lives and now has found their forever homes

The Rose Valley Veterinary Hospital has found ‘forever homes’ for the chocolate lab and her litter they saved from parvovirus last week.

“Dr. Oz and Dr. Noa, thank you all so much for your love and support. We were all so overwhelmed with the response from our community. It really gives us faith in humanity,” reads a Facebook post where they announced the adoption Sunday afternoon.

The mother found a home along with one of her puppies, the nine remaining puppies were whisked off to their new homes as well.
