Fighting for the Bullys Pit Bull Rescue pulled Caleb from DeKalb County Georgia shelter. He had a melon sized tumor, which was removed. Caleb also has mast cell cancer, but he is in remission!! Fighting for the Bullys requested assistance with Caleb’s patella surgery.
Fighting for the Bullys also pulled Ryder out of the Clayton County Georgia shelter. During his vet visit, Ryder was found to have a decaying canine tooth. He also needed neutering. We helped cover Ryder’s neuter and tooth extraction.
In all, HPAN paid $557.85 to help these handsome boys!
Almost Home Animal Rescue requested assistance with Zorro, a feral cat in need of vetting. HPAN sponsored his vetting with $112.48. Zorro is now living in a feral cat colony.
Petunia was hit by a car and surrendered with a broken leg. Spay It Forward East TN requested assistance with her leg amputation. HPAN funded $300 towards this beautiful girl’s surgery!
Poor Blue was ran over by his owner and surrendered to Spay It Forward East TN. Helping Paws Animal Network was happy to help with his broken front leg! Blue will be in foster care until his leg heals. A big Get Well Soon to this little guy!
Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue was contacted by Roane County Animal Shelter when an owner came in to surrender seven dogs! Helping Paws Animal Network provided funds for all seven dogs in need of basic vetting! Basic vetting typically includes exams, rabies vaccinations, and heartworm tests. Coco, Chaco, Dominic, Halo, Jacoby, Jeep, and Lincoln deserve a second chance, and we were happy to help them!
Bug and Kin are 3 month old kittens who are part of a litter of four taken to Young Williams Animal Center. This litter had a pretty rough bout of upper respiratory infection that caused eye irritation and infections so bad that their eyes were swelling from inside their head, causing pain and permanent blindness. YWAC reached out to us for the required eye removal surgeries. Luckily, these spunky kittens have not let that slow them down. Bug and his brother eat and play just fine and love to explore using all their other senses.
Lady was surrendered to the Campbell County Animal Shelter by her owner. She had not been spayed or kept on heartworm prevention. Unfortunately, she tested positive for heartworms, but the Friends of Campbell County Animals (FCCA) came to the rescue and started her on a 30-day regimen of antibiotics prior to her heartworm treatment injections. When it came time for the injections, FCCA reached out for us to sponsor the cost of that as well as Lady’s spay surgery. No more heartworms and no more pups for this fine gal!
In January, the East TN Pit Bull Rescue was contacted about 19 dogs on a shelter euthanasia list and 12 of them were pit bulls. They agreed to take in DJ, Sadie, and Riley, who have been in boarding since January, and the fees keep adding up. We paid the $423 boarding fee so these dogs have a chance at adoption.
Then there’s Slick, a cruelty case forced to enter a shelter, and a large, young, deaf pit bull. They pulled him with promises from another rescuer, moved him to a boarding facility and had him neutered. Slick has been sitting there since December. Turns out the other rescuer backed out. We kicked in $300 on Slick’s boarding fee so he can be available for adoption.
Lastly, there have been so many puppies. They have caused ETPBR to amass quite a large vet bill. We kicked in a few hundred dollars to help pay for basic and not-so-basic vetting.
Roxie was taken to the Campbell County Animal Shelter as a pregnant stray. Her puppies were weaned and sent North. Unfortunately, Roxie is heartworm positive and was immediately started on doxycycline after weaning her puppies. We are thankful for the opportunity to sponsor her treatments so she’ll be well again. Roxie is in foster and will either be adopted locally or sent to rescue when she tests negative.
Mike was brought to the Campbell County Animal Shelter as a stray with his brother, Ike. Unfortunately, Mike has an injured or defective eye and tested positive for heartworms. He was immediately started on doxycycline. His worm load is high, and he will likely have a long recovery, but we agreed to sponsor his heartworm treatments and a check-up on his eye. He will either go to rescue or be adopted when he tests negative for heartworms and his eye issue is appropriately addressed.
