Teddy was pulled from a high-kill shelter by Pet Path. We sponsored his final vaccines, dewormer, microchip, and neuter. He now has a great home!
Rover landed at the Roane County Animal Hospital as a stray. He was adopted, but then came back to the shelter after two weeks with what appeared to be a broken leg. Per the family, he slipped outside and ran in front of a car. X-rays, surgery, and required boarding came to around $1,300. HPAN kicked in $300. Rover will be available for adoption as soon as he is adequately healed, and the shelter assures us they will find him a family who will keep him safe and secure.
Calvin is a 13 year old miniature horse surrendered to the East Tennessee Miniature Horse and Donkey Rescue. He was behind on all vaccines, his teeth needed work, and he had an undescended testicle requiring surgery. The rescue asked us to help on the cost of his surgery, so we kicked in $300 toward the bill.
All of these dogs came from Tennessee animal shelters and were lucky enough to find their way into the stellar rescue called Pet Path in Roane County. We sponsored their basic vetting to get them ready for adoption. That included vaccines, spay/neuter, deworming, microchips, etc.
Autumn was found as a stray in Knoxville along with another dog, who was placed into a home immediately after complete vetting. Autumn, on the other hand, had a bad case of heartworms, which come from mosquito bites. She went into the Humane Society of East Tennessee’s foster program and started the 8-week treatment. We paid half her vet bill to relieve some of the rescue’s financial burden. Autumn is on a monthly prevention program and will never have to worry about heartworms again.
Grace was found as a stray and ended up at the Roane County Animal Shelter. Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue took her in and found that she had a bad case of heartworms. She received treatment and is resting. A sanctuary in Pennsylvania is taking Grace into their program, so they sent some funds on her treatment cost, and HPAN kicked in $55.48 to pay the balance. Grace is in for a wonderful life, never to be a stray again!
Pebbles had a recurring dental disease, called Stomatitis, causing her to be allergic to the bacteria in her own mouth. She was in desperate need of rescue from the Blount County Animal Center. In stepped the Humane Society of East Tennessee to her rescue! After many rounds of antibiotics and steroid injections, her vet recommended that some of her teeth be removed. HPAN sponsored much of her recent vet bill. Pebbles is doing much better and is ready for her forever home.
Meka was pulled into rescue by the Humane Society of East Tennessee due to neglect. She had severe allergies, terrible teeth, and was being used as a breeder dog. The rescue had her spayed and made sure her skin allergies were healed. She also had a digestive issue they had to address, and now she’s having seizures. HPAN sponsored Meka’s vetting by helping the rescue pay off some of her previous bills and helped pay for additional testing needed to address her seizures and digestive problems.
Almost Home Animal Rescue pulled five of these kittens from a high-kill shelter just before they were put down, and one from a feral colony. We sponsored their exams, combo tests, vaccines, dewormer, etc. They’re too young to be altered, but that will come, and then they will be on their way to living the good life!
These boys landed themselves in a shelter but, thankfully, they were pulled into rescue by Almost Home Animal Rescue. We sponsored their exams, vaccines, heartworm tests and prevention, and neuter surgeries.
