Compassion, one step at a time – metro business provides prosthetics for goose missing foot and lamb missing leg

LUTHER, Okla. (KFOR) – It was a mission of mercy for the folks at Oliver and Friends Special Needs Animal Sanctuary in Luther.

More specifically, for Zurie the Chinese goose and Maddie the lamb.

Zurie was missing a foot after being shot and Maddie was missing a leg.

Andy Anders with Celerity Prosthetics of Oklahoma City was there to give the goose and lamb prosthetics so they can walk normally again.

Unlike his human patients, Andy has to custom make animal prosthetics by hand.

“It’s very rewarding,” Andy says. “Especially when the prosthetics actually work and function. Sometimes they do fail, but it’s a learning process.”

The new foot for Zurie worked perfectly. For the founder of Oliver and Friends, it was an emotional moment watching Zurie walk like a normal goose.

“To be able to see the transformation…” Jenni Hayes said with tears in her eyes. “To be able to see the transformation from an injured animal that didn’t have much of a will to live to get to this point where we’re actually able to help them in such a profound way to really enhance their life is everything to me, it’s the whole reason why we do this at all.”

Maddie the lamb’s new prosthetic is a little more of a challenge. Anders is still working on that, but should soon have it just right, and both Zurie and Maddie will be another example of compassion by the good folks at Oliver and Friends and those who support their mission.

‘Just Like Me’: 9-Year-Old and Her Puppy Getting New Prosthetic Limbs

By NICOLE PELLETIERE September 22, 2016 3:55 PM Good Morning America

One 9-year-old and her puppy best friend will both receive new prosthetic limbs, after their shared distinction brought them together.

“Averie immediately fell in love with her,” mom Kimberly Mitchell of Hugo, Oklahoma told ABC News. “She said, ‘Mom, Hattie’s just like me.’ That pretty much sealed the deal. She bonded with her. I knew I couldn’t say no.”

Averie Mitchell was born with a condition called pseudarthrosis of the tibia. At age two, her parents opted for amputation, so that she could grow up with a prosthetic. And although her daughter has lived with a prosthetic most of her life, Mitchell said she never lets it slow her down.

“She’s in gymnastics competing level 4 this year and she’s just still growing strong,” she added.

Averie and her puppy Hattie Mae met in February during one of Averie’s appointments at Celerity Prosthetics in Oklahoma City to be casted for a prosthetic socket.

Like Averie, Hattie was at Celerity because she’s missing her right [back] leg. The company also works with animals who are in need of prosthetics.

“At that appointment, there was a foster mom there with Hattie,” Mitchell said. “Hattie was a puppy and she was also missing her right back leg. While Averie was getting casted, Hattie laid her head on Averie’s lap and sat there with her.”

After a long talk, the Mitchell family decided to adopt Hattie in May from The Underdogs Rescue in Oklahoma City.


“It’s a match made in heaven, that’s all I can say,” said Meike Parker, founder of The Underdogs Rescue. “Since our name is The Underdogs, we usually take in the ones that no one else wants. In Hattie Mae’s case, the physical ailment never stopped her from being the dog that she is, a happy puppy, a social butterfly.”

Averie’s new prosthetic will be ready in the coming days. Hattie’s is currently being built.
