HPAN is Part of Holly’s Village, Paying Vet Bill of $128.80

Holly was found by a good Samaritan in LaFollette on Dec 7, 2019.  She believed she had been hit by a car since she was lying in a ditch.  She kept her until she could get her to the Campbell County Animal Shelter (CCAS) on Monday morning.  Upon being surrendered to the shelter, they immediately took her to the UT vet hospital.  They also believed she had been hit by a car.  She had a significant injury to her right jaw, face and mouth.  They were hopeful that her injuries weren’t significant despite the appearance.  Her will to live was so apparent. Holly was examined by the doctors at UT, and it was determined that she was not hit by a car and had some other significant trauma from a gunshot.  Her injury likely didn’t happen on Saturday as the remaining bone was already dead and significant infection had set in.  She was also very dehydrated despite the finder syringing fluids.  Holly was given hydromorphine and sent back to the shelter for a decision as to what path to take with her.  Unfortunately, UT estimated her immediate future care to cost between $5500 and $10,500.  At the last minute, Big Fluffy Dog Rescue agreed to take her and her future medical expenses into their program.  Shelter staff drove her to meet them late that night.  She is now in the care of Big Fluffy Dog Rescue and will receive the multiple surgeries that are necessary.  CCAS requested we assist with Holly’s initial medical evaluation for $128.80.
