Hello Dolly!

Dolly came to the Oak Ridge Animal Shelter several weeks ago very sick-too sick to make it in a shelter environment. She was bloated with parasites, severely malnourished, and had a terrible skin infection. Nothing the shelter’s vet could do for her was helping. A volunteer with the Friends of Oak Ridge Animal Shelter (FORAS) agreed to take her into foster care and try to put her on a path of wellness, increasing her chances at adoption by giving her medicated baths and antibiotics. Dolly fell ill recently and was rushed to UT Veterinary Clinic at 4 a.m. UT gave her IV fluids, medicine, took blood, and shot some x-rays. When she started to perk up, UT referred her back to Oak Ridge Veterinary Hospital, where her test results were evaluated. HPAN contributed $250 toward her medical bill. Dolly likely had a reaction to her medication, and she is doing much better. She is ready for her forever family.
