Bundy was the victim of an accident gone bad. His owner’s child slammed his tail in the car door and then decided to pull on it. As a reaction, Bundy snapped at the child, so he was surrendered to a local shelter. Poor Bundy found himself without a working tail or a family. Thankfully, the Humane Society of Roane County stepped up and took him in. We sponsored Bundy’s surgery and neuter, and he will be on his way to a wonderful northern rescue and in foster care before he is approved for adoption.
Fighting for the Bullys recently pulled Willie Malone from a shelter where his chances of getting out were slim, especially since he has a bad case of heartworms. The rescue asked us to sponsor his treatments, and we were glad to do it. Willie is beginning the long recovery in foster care before he will be adopted into a wonderful home.
Almost Home Animal Rescue has been busy! They recently rescued these beauties, who were either owner surrendered, abandoned, found as strays, or were property of shelters. We sponsored a myriad of vet needs for Batman, SJ, Stella, Bruce, Reese, Ms. Kitty, Lady, Maddow, Gerald, Neptune, and Rascal. All animals are now vaccinated, altered, dewormed, and healthy thanks to our sponsorship!
Mr. Jingles was abandoned as a kitten at a trailer park where nobody claimed him. He was wearing a collar that he outgrew, and it embedded into his neck. When Spay it Forward Tennessee heard about it, they trapped him and took him into their program. He saw three different vets before one was about to help him. Surgically removing his collar was a gruesome procedure that is requiring wound management for several weeks, but thankfully Mr. Jingles is going to make it. We were able to sponsor a portion of his vet bill.
Ruby has lived 90% of her entire two years in a crate. Her owner has agreed to surrender Ruby to rescue. She will be in foster care, learning how to be a dog and learning to be loved, and then she will be up for local adoption. Her rescue, Senior Dog Lodge & Animal Rescue, asked us to sponsor Ruby’s veterinary exam, parasite testing, and a dose of monthly prevention. Ruby’s future looks bright!
When the Tennessee Valley Golden Retriever Rescue picked up Sweety, she had ticks crawling all over her and a visible lump on her stomach. The vet discovered she had a massive infection in her uterus requiring surgery. We kicked in funds to help the rescue with this cost.
Finn was seized by Campbell County Animal Control from an abuse/neglect situation with his buddy, Pumpkin. Finn was treated for malnourishment and an urinary tract infection. The shelter group, Friends of Campbell County Animals, asked us to pay for Finn’s vet check, vaccines, testing, medication, and hospitalization. He’s doing so much better!
Cammie found herself at a very bad shelter pregnant and with heartworms. Fighting for the Bullys Rescue took her into their program, let her have and raise her babies in peace, found them great homes, and now they’re taking care of Cammie. They asked us to sponsor her heartworm treatments. It’s her turn for a wonderful forever home!
Ladybird was among a litter of puppies surrendered to Spay it Forward East TN by a young couple who could not care for them. Ten days after their first vaccines, the puppies came down with Parvovirus. All pups were put in the hospital, but Ladybird was the only survivor after four days of intensive care. The rescue asked us to help with her bill.
Brandon, Freda, and Cassie were taken to the Campbell County Animal Shelter and needed some specialized vet care. For a variety of conditions from infections to needed surgery, these babies needed our help. We were glad to be there for them. All kitties are in foster care while they await adoption.
