The Smoky Mountain Animal Rescue of Tennessee (SMART) recently pulled a 12-year-old Norwegian Elkhound, Kelly (pictured), who was dumped at the Oak Ridge Animal Shelter (ORAS). Rarely are senior dogs adopted, but senior dogs are loved by SMART. Kelly is a very sweet dog, and she needed care. She suffers from a little lameness and some incontinence, probably due to an infection. SMART immediately took Kelly to the vet and got her started on medicine and preventives. She is living the good life now with roughly 30 other dogs in this wonderful non-profit rescue. SMART’s dog food bill runs around $400 a week, so we thought it might help them with the dogs if we sponsored a week’s worth of food.
