Camille was taken to the Campbell County Animal Shelter as a stray. She was pregnant and scared. Staff noticed blood in her kennel and took her to the vet where she was diagnosed with a severe uterine infection. We were happy to sponsor Camille’s spay surgery. Unfortunately, the infection began to spread throughout her body. She suffered sepsis and passed away. All of this could have been prevented if Camille’s owners would have done right by her and had her spayed earlier.
After being abandoned, all these babies were lucky enough to land with Almost Home Animal Rescue. They reached out to us to sponsor their initial vet services for $159.28.
George (cute little white one) is one of two parvo survivors from a litter of nine. The two black pups are from a litter of four. They were treated for coccidia, recovered quickly, and have transferred north. All three of these babies were surrendered to the Blount County Animal Welfare Society when they became listless and stopped eating. Thankfully, all of these pictured made it, and we were so glad to help them!
MoCo Mutts Rescue Center called us on a Sunday asking for help as they rushed Copper to the emergency clinic. The clinic had no empty seats in their waiting room, and Copper was failing from an apparent snake bite. He was rushed to the only other emergency clinic in Knoxville, where his wound was confirmed. As soon as the vet began to administer treatment, Copper passed. We all did what we could to help him. We had paid the first $500 of Copper’s bill before he died. Later, the clinic refunded our money, but we felt that Copper’s story should be shared. He was a good boy.
Koda was a stray kitty from Morgan County, and Joshua and Jeffrey were owner surrenders to the Roane County Animal Shelter. The Humane Society of Roane County pulled them into rescue and asked us to sponsor their vaccines and neuters. All three will be transferring to northern rescues soon!
Fern and her kittens were found under a vacation rental and surrendered to Almost Home Animal Rescue. We have committed to their vet care before they are adoptable. That started recently with wellness exams, vaccines, and dewormer. Soon they will receive booster vaccines and be spayed and neutered.
Dogs aren’t their only game! MoCo Mutts took in this injured stray kitty, Betty. We had the opportunity to sponsor her medical exam, wound care, vaccines, and medication for $200. She is recovering at the rescue center.
Spaying one cat means the prevention of many cats! We paid to have Kena spayed for Almost Home Animal Rescue after she was abandoned, committed to rescue, then rejected because she was ill. Thank heavens for Almost Home for stepping up!
MoCo Mutts Rescue Center took in Jerry, who was a stray. He was never claimed, so they asked us to sponsor his exam, testing, vaccines, dental, and neuter. Isn’t he cute?
It’s a sad story for Heather. Her owner was in an accident and unable to recover well enough to care for her, so she was left in the care of someone who could not keep her long-term. That’s when Almost Home Animal Rescue stepped up to ensure her safety. A senior gal like Heather would not have done well in a shelter environment. When taken to the vet, Heather had many issues, including a really bad ear infection and skin allergies. We sponsored her treatments, as well as other testing and general wellness procedures.
