HPAN heard that Buddy, in the care of Almost Home Animal Rescue (Blount County), needed medical care. We stepped up to contribute toward his vet costs. Buddy is a three year old, 92lb, Flat-Coated Golden Retriever who is full of love. He has a large hematoma in his right ear caused by his pawing at a very bad ear infection. If the hematoma is not removed, he will be disfigured for life and will suffer pain. The surgery will cost a little over $300. Buddy is the sweetest guy you will ever meet. He was horribly neglected. In addition to the ear, has some skin problems due to flea infestation. He is heartworm negative and neutered. Buddy is now up-to-date on vetting and on heartworm and flea preventative. When Almost Home first received him, he moved around like an old dog; now he plays with toys and is interested in everything around him. He takes a toy out of a basket and returns it when he gets out another one. He is a very smart boy! Some family will be very lucky to adopt Buddy. Anyone interested should message email@example.com.
Three month old Lincoln was rescued by Almost Home Animal Rescue just in time on January 13th from an area shelter. He had a cough and received two rounds of antibiotics and cough medicines. His cough persisted, and on January 29th he suddenly became very ill. He was hospitalized immediately. A few days later, the vets still did not know what was wrong with him and were just trying to save his life.
After five days of being gravely ill, Lincoln finally started to get better. He was released February 7th from the hospital and has since been adopted and is doing well in his new home.
Almost Home Animal Rescue saved a little Border Collie mix, who turned out to have a cyst on her tooth, which affected her sinuses. HPAN contributed $500 to the vet to assist with her treatment and get her shots updated. The money also went toward the care of rescued Casio who tested positive for heartworms.
