Harper was surrendered to the Anderson County Animal Shelter. She was covered in flees, had a bad skin infection, needed to be spayed, and had a bum leg from a former surgery gone wrong. Slumdog Rescue Crew pulled this tiny darling into their program and got her straight to the vet, who said her back leg was causing her more trouble than it was worth and that an amputation would be needed. They asked us to help with the cost of surgery, which was nearly $1,600. We were at least able to pitch in $300. Payments can be called into Powell Animal Hospital, 865-938-7008.
Bosco and Charlie’s time was up at the Anderson County Animal Shelter. They were surrendered together by their family. Both beagles had skin infections, one had bad teeth, neither were up to date on any vaccines or prevention, and both had Ehrlichia and Lyme, which are tickborne diseases. Needless to say, a lot of vet care was needed to get these boys the life they deserved. We were happy to help the rescue group, Almost Home Animal Rescue, who pulled them into safety. These boys will be in a better home soon!
Elly from Young-Williams Animal Center, Panda from Anderson County Animal Shelter, and Frances from Roane County Animal Shelter, all with different medical needs, found their way into safety with Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue. We helped with Elly’s mange treatment, Panda’s initial vetting, and Frances’ leg surgery. All of these babies will be adopted into loving homes when they are fully healed.
A Chance for Champ pulled Falcon into their rescue program from the Anderson County Animal Shelter when he was diagnosed with heart worms. He would have been euthanized without their assistance. We were happy to pay the Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley’s medical clinic for his treatment, and he is recovering in foster care.
Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue was called by the great folks of the Anderson County Animal Shelter to come to the rescue of a mom dog, Tulip, who had just delivered six puppies at the shelter, which is no place for newborns to be. They immediately went into foster care and then a bit later to the vet for services including puppy shots, dewormer, testing on Tulip, and health certificates. What an honor to help this little family at Christmastime!
Nellie was pulled from the Anderson County Animal Shelter by the rescue group, A Chance for Champ. They asked us to sponsor her basic vetting: spay surgery, back dewclaw removal, vaccines, dewormer, and first flea/heartworm prevention. As soon as she gets her boosters, she’ll be ready for adoption!
