Almost Home Animal Rescue pulled five of these kittens from a high-kill shelter just before they were put down, and one from a feral colony. We sponsored their exams, combo tests, vaccines, dewormer, etc. They’re too young to be altered, but that will come, and then they will be on their way to living the good life!
These boys landed themselves in a shelter but, thankfully, they were pulled into rescue by Almost Home Animal Rescue. We sponsored their exams, vaccines, heartworm tests and prevention, and neuter surgeries.
Pet Path asked us to sponsor vetting for all of these dogs that were either owner surrenders or from animal shelters. We paid $324 for spay/neuter, vaccines, dewormer, and microchips for all. These lucky dogs are finally on a path to happiness!
Dale and Oakley were spotted in a ditch, obviously tossed out, along a road in Morgan County. A walker spotted them and could not leave them there to die. They weren’t even old enough to be away from their mother. She put out a plea for help on Facebook, and in stepped Feral Feline Friends of East Tennessee. One of their volunteers nursed the babies until they were old enough to be properly vetted, and then HPAN sponsored their neuters, combo tests, and vaccines. These beauties are now ready for their forever homes.
Monty is a senior dog pulled from the Roane County Animal Shelter by Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue. He had a severe infection that had his right eye matted shut, as well as a yeast infection on his skin. We paid for his veterinary exam, antibiotic ointment for his eye, oral antibiotics for his skin, as well as his rabies vaccine, and heartworm test. Monty will now know the good life!
Lily-Kay came to the Sweetwater Valley Dog Rescue (SVDR) via At Risk Intervention, who pulled her from a severe hoarding situation. She was too weak to stand and had to spend several days in the hospital just to regain her strength and put on weight. Now that she’s healthy enough, we sponsored her spay surgery and vaccines. SVDR will place her in a fabulous home.
Mark made his way to At Risk Intervention after being rescued from a hoarding case. He had a bad case of parvovirus and almost died. After a long stent of supportive care, he made it. But then he relapsed into pneumonia and ran up another vet bill. ARI asked us if we could help. Mark is now doing great and will be transported to a great northern rescue very soon. He’s such a sweetie and will be adopted very quickly.
Dolly was a former breeder dog living in horrible conditions. Her owner would ween her puppies at just 2-3 weeks old to make a quick dollar and get her started on the next litter. When Dolly developed a severe uterine infection and could no longer breed, her owner took her to Young-Williams Animal Center (YWAC) for euthanasia. YWAC staff convinced the owner to instead surrender her to them, and their team jumped into action to make Dolly as comfortable as possible. Animal control was able to track down her babies from that horrible owner. He mentioned he was weaning this last litter at two weeks! We sent funds for Dolly’s spay surgery, which will happen as soon as the puppies are properly weaned, as well as medication for her uterine infection. Our funds will also help pay for initial puppy vetting. Dolly will remain with YWAC until they match her with the perfect home where she will never be treated as disposable ever again.
Bluto came to the Sweetwater Valley Dog Rescue from a hoarding case in East Tennessee. He had swallowed a Kong toy, aspirated, and ended up with pneumonia. We sponsored his surgery and needed treatment for pneumonia, and he is now on a path to having a wonderful life.
A litter of puppies was found abandoned at the Anderson County Animal Shelter at 2 weeks of age, after the mother was hit by a car and killed. Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue took them in, and fosters immediately began bottle feeding them. They unfortunately lost two of the male puppies very quickly overnight. At about 5 weeks of age, one of the other males in the litter began having upper respiratory problems and passed away within 15 minutes of arriving at the emergency vet. And most recently, the last male presented with upper respiratory problems and was rushed to Pellissippi Vet, where he also passed away within 15 minutes of arrival. Halos volunteers are treating the three girls, Hope, Grace, and Faith with antibiotics and nebulizer breathing treatments. We paid a good portion of their vet bill.
