Dug was taken to the Campbell County Animal Shelter as a stray. He was in pretty good shape, but he had an internal killer – heartworms. We were able to sponsor the treatment to eradicate this horrible parasitic disease, and we paid for his neuter as well. Dug is resting in foster care before he will be available for adoption.
Almost Home Animal Rescue asked us to help with medication and testing for these three little ones: Candy, Berlioz, and Oliver. Candy was found in a bush and was terrified. It took rescuers about a half hour to coax her out. She ended up with a botfly larvae in her neck. Berlioz was found as a stray all by himself in the middle of nowhere. Oliver’s owner finally surrendered him, stating that he has seizures, and she couldn’t afford him. He came in lethargic and blood dripping from his nose. He is doing so much better and went in for his check up.
Clay was hit by a car and sustained injuries to his hip. Thankfully, his internal injuries were minor and will heal, but he required surgery for a major laceration. His rescuer, MoCo Mutts, asked us to sponsor his emergency treatment, which cost $478. Clay is on to the road of recovery.
Kiki and Cici were surrendered to the Blount County Animal Welfare Society when their owner realized they couldn’t make any money on mixed-breed puppies. None of their vetting had been completed, so the rescue reached out to us to sponsor. Now these girls can hop on a northbound transport where they will be adopted into loving homes.
Tangerine, Pavoratti, Sabrina, Whiskey, Russell, Judah, and Diamond are finally living better lives thanks to us and Almost Home Animal Rescue. Each of these beauties were either abandoned, surrendered, or found as strays, and all needed special care. The needs included spay/neuter,
vaccines, antibiotics, blood work, dewormer, wound care, flea treatment, snap tests, cornea care, and fluids. After our sponsorships totaling $1249.89, we wish you happy tails, sweet ones!
Oliver was featured in our blog a few weeks ago when he was taken in by Almost Home Animal Rescue, and we sponsored his initial vet needs. He was near death at that point. After good vet care and our sponsorship, Oliver was finally well enough for vaccines and, most recently, neutering. This photo is such an improvement from the first photo we posted a few posts back. He’s doing so well and is now ready for a new home – one where he will be cared for and loved for the rest of his life. We are so glad to be a part of Oliver’s success!
Berlioz was the only kitten from his litter who survived abandonment and starvation. He was lucky enough to be brought in to Almost Home Animal Rescue. They reached out to us to cover his initial vet bill of $47.21 for medication and fluids. Basic vet services will be performed next, once he is out of the woods.
Emmy came in as a stray in very bad shape to the Maryville/Alcoa Animal Rescue Center. The staff took her to their vet where she spent the next six weeks for treatment of a myriad of issues, including multiple infections. We were able to apply $500 to her mounting vet bill. Thankfully, Emmy is going to be just fine and will soon be available for adoption.
KitKat and her five babies were in a hoarding situation before they landed in rescue with Almost Home. This little mama cat was so terrified that she wasn’t feeding her little ones. Unfortunately, three of the babies didn’t make it, and she almost died. Thankfully, KitKat received the care she needed to survive, and we were happy to cover her medical needs.
These kitties were rescued by a vet tech who networked them into rescue. Almost Home Animal Rescue stepped up again! We covered initial vaccines and wellness exams for the kittens.
