Puppies Survive Parvo Treatment with $668.60 from HPAN

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!

Seven Dogs Get FREEDOM!

Henry, Hattie, Hank, Starling, Dottie, Harry, and Hector were living in squalor before the Blount County Animal Welfare Society offered help to their owner. They convinced him to surrender the dogs to them so they could have a better quality of life. We sponsored basic vetting for all the dogs to ensure their health before they transported north for adoption.

Kanatai Gets Hip Fixed with $500

Kanatai was surrendered to the shelter because his owners could not afford to have his hip injury repaired. The shelter was not able to expend the resources on him, so he had very little chance of survival until the Blount County Animal Welfare Society stepped in. They found a local veterinarian willing to give them a deep discount on the surgery, and then they reached out to us for help. We were happy to kick in the majority of the cost, and now this boy will soon be on his way to a northern rescue for a second chance at life!

Three Dogs Get Sponsored BCAWS They Deserve It!

Frosty, Brownie, and Callie were living in despicable conditions and not receiving the care they needed. The Blount County Animal Welfare Society (BCAWS) convinced owners to surrender the dogs to rescue so they can have the lives they deserve. We spent $846.50 to get the dogs examined, tested, vaccinated, dewormed, and boarded until their transport north. Onward and upward to better lives!

Neil Gets Meds and Emergency Boarding

Neil was tied out and left for days to fend for himself while his owner went out of town. One day he escaped and was picked up by animal control. The Blount County Animal Welfare Society took him into their program and got him ready for a northbound transport. Unfortunately, Neil broke with kennel cough and had to be medicated and boarded before he could hitch a ride to his new life. We were happy to sponsor these expenses, which were $210.

HPAN Helps Trey with $142.50

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.

HPAN Helps Four Pups with $492

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.

HPAN Helps Copper with $278.75

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.

HPAN Helps 3 Abandoned Dogs with $1088

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!

HPAN Sponsors Two Dogs for $229.50

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.
