HPAN Sends $660 in Sponsorship to SMART’s Veterinarian
Smoky Mountain Animal Rescue of Tennessee (SMART) was in need of funding for the veterinary care of their sanctuary animals. In the past three months, they have been raising a litter of puppies born to a dog, Daisy, they rescued in August. When the puppies were six weeks old, one of the pups, George, was diagnosed with a genetic disease called Strangles. Fortunately, George is expected to make a full recovery, but the unexpected cost of raising a surprise litter of pups has put a bit of a stress on them financially. They were requesting a donation of $660 toward upcoming wellness exams and vaccines, which would cover up to six of their senior dogs.
