Trey is the fourth and final pup pulled from a situation where all of the puppies were tied out with no shelter in freezing temperatures. The owner reluctantly gave him up, but the Blount County Animal Welfare Society convinced the owner it was for Trey’s own good. They asked us to sponsor his basic vetting so he could transport north and be adopted into a loving home.
Four pups, Nala, Sheba, Carmella, and Dora were tied out with no shelter in freezing temperatures when the Blount County Animal Welfare Society stepped in and offered assistance. They literally erected a fence and took dog houses to the owner in the middle of the night! Thankfully, they were able to convince him to surrender the dogs to rescue. That’s when we were contacted about sponsoring their basic vetting and health certificates required for a northbound transport.
Copper is a beautiful redbone coonhound who has lived in a pen for two years with no attention. His owner got him as a puppy and was going to hunt him. Never happened. They decided to rehome him with a hunter, but the Blount County Animal Welfare Society convinced them to surrender him. Good decision – he is heartworm-positive. We were able to help the welfare group get the needed medication to help rid Copper of this deadly parasite.
Joey, Mertie, and Carly are victims of a “dump and run” in Blount County. Thankfully for them, the Blount County Animal Welfare Society took them in and straight to the vet. They asked us to help. We were able to sponsor their wellness exams, parasite tests, spay/neuter, and vaccines. These beautiful dogs can now look forward to a much brighter future!
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.
Callie and Cassie are two more dogs in one of the worst hoarding cases we’ve ever heard of, recently given up to the Blount County Animal Welfare Society. We were able to sponsor their basic vetting and path to wellness, so they can be adopted into a home where they are given the love and attention they so deserve and need.
The Blount County Animal Welfare Society has been convincing an owner to surrender animals to them two, three, and four at a time. With 30 animals still on property, they were able to rescue five dogs last week. We sponsored basic services like blood tests, vaccines, wormer, and spay/neuter for Fluffy, Cricket, Daisy Mae, Jesse, and Rusty. Life is already much better for these five!
Petunia and Tulip are two more dogs from a 50 dog hoarding case in Blount County. The Blount County Animal Welfare Society (BCAWS) has convinced the owner to surrender a few here and a few there. These girls are the most recent surrenders. They were almost untouchable at first (reference dog house photo), but loving foster care has taught these beauties to trust humans (reference other photos 🙂). BCAWS asked us to sponsor their basic vetting, so the girls are now ready to be adopted into loving homes.
The Blount County Animal Welfare Society was made aware of a hoarding situation. The dogs were chained and sickly. They convinced the owner to surrender Sissy, Gordo, Trixie, and Snowball, and then they asked us to sponsor their vet exams, testing, vaccines, and needed medication. All four of these beauties are now in New York awaiting their forever homes.
Lola and Reese were living outside in a muddy mess. Their owner contacted the Blount County Animal Welfare Society (BCAWS) to rehome after realizing she couldn’t care for them. BCAWS asked us for help, so we paid for their exams, parasite testing, vaccines, and spay surgeries for $373.50 each. These girls will be heading north soon and will be adopted through the Homeward Bound Dog Rescue of NY!
