Cuddles and Taze Get Our Help with $912.75
These two were part of a pack of 11 Chihuahuas surrendered to the Blount County Animal Welfare Society when their owner passed away. They had horrible teeth causing infection in their mouths. This required dentals and medication. These little ones will be heading north as soon as they are healed.
Two Dogs Get What They Deserve with $961 from HPAN
Annie was starving when the Blount County Animal Welfare Society (BCAWS) found her. One of the residents of a trailer park alerted the rescue to her condition. The owner was in jail for domestic abuse. His wife had moved to a different trailer and would come over to feed the dogs, except she didn’t feed Annie. With the small amount of money she had, she chose to feed the German shepherd instead. Annie had a couple of rough days at the vet. We helped cover her exam, blood work, x-rays, etc. for $500. Fortunately, she is much improved and will go to foster care to heal.
Callie came from a local drug den. Callie was surrendered to BCAWS when her owner went to jail. We paid for her vet exam, diagnostics, vaccines, and spay for $461.
HPAN Pays $335 for Vetting Three Pups
The Blount County Animal Welfare Society rescued Scout, Sadie, and Sophie from living underneath an abandoned house in Blount County. We were able to sponsor their medical exams, parasite testing, vaccines, and a couple days of boarding before they get ready to hop a van to a northern state where they will get fixed and find loving homes!
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.
