HPAN Sponsors Three Almost Home Dogs for $900
Sometimes rescue groups need us for more than just basic vetting. That was the case recently for Almost Home Animal Rescue (AHAR). Over the last several months they’ve rescued some dogs that came with complicated issues and steep medical bills. Ali came to AHAR as a puppy from a backyard breeder. She was undernourished and sick. She was diagnosed with parvo and spent a week in the hospital and racked up a $1,200 bill. She’s now healthy, happy, and ready for adoption. Frederick came to AHAR as a stray. His initial vet visit revealed a urinary tract infection and leptovirus, and he has a pre-cancerous tumor. His bill was over $1,000. Then there was Sierra, who was surrendered after being neglected by her owner. She was found to have heartworms, leaving the rescue further in debt-over $1,300, in fact. Thankfully, Sierra is now heartworm-free and in her new home. HPAN contributed $300 per dog, so $900 in total to AHAR!
