HPAN Helps Rescue with $231

Buddy was found in a grocery store parking lot. It was evident he had been homeless for sometime. He gladly jumped in his rescuer’s car. When they had him scanned for a microchip and contacted his owners, they had not seen him in a long time and did not want him back. Almost Home Animal Rescue took him into their program and got his health checked and insured he was caught up on all of his vaccines and testing. We sponsored the bill for them. Buddy is now in a home where he is loved as he deserves.

HPAN Sponsors 21 AHAR Animals with $1684

All of these beauties were taken in by Almost Home Animal Rescue (AHAR) as strays or owner surrenders. They needed basic vet care including vaccines, parasite tests, medication/preventives, and spay/neuter. We sponsored the needs for $1,684. Some are now in their adoptive homes, and others are still available. On to better lives, Olive, Soleil, Priscilla, Elvis, Grace, Bonnie, Clyde, Kingston, Fuzzy Tail, Jolie, Reuben, Stitch, Buddy, Sadie, Mulan, and Soliel’s litter: Mars, Venus, Neptune, Jupiter, Eartha, and Saturn!

HPAN Sponsors 10 Rescue Animals for $939

Almost Home Animal Rescue asked us to help with these 10 animals. All had been either abandoned or surrendered by their owners and needed vet care. We helped them pay for basic vetting for all 10 for $939. Flossy, Petey, Waylon, Lou, Elvis, Bomean, Loki, Buddy, and Cooper will live better lives because of their rescue.

HPAN Sponsors Puppies with $230

Sassy, Sweetie, and Buddy were owner surrenders from a family in East Tennessee to A Chance for Champ rescue. They needed vaccines and spay/neuter, which we sponsored. All puppies will be adopted into loving homes very soon.

HPAN Helps RCP with $180

On a cold winter night, these two dogs were spotted at a boat ramp in rural Roane County. They had obviously been dumped, as they were terrified of anyone who tried to help them, and there were no houses around. After days of trying to capture them, Roane County Paws was finally successful with a couple dog traps and some smelly food. They were named Buddy and Girlie, and they both breathed a sigh of relief once they realized they were safe. The rescue reached out to us for help, so we sponsored their vet exams, heartworm tests, dewormer, vaccines, and spay/neuter. Buddy and Girlie are available for adoption through Roane County Paws.

HPAN Pays for Emergency Boarding

Buddy’s owner had to be hospitalized, so he had to go back to rescue. They had no space for him, so we were asked to help. We paid $300 for the needed boarding.


HPAN Assists Vet in Philanthropic Effort

Jackson Square Animal Clinic (JSAC) sometimes extends their hands into rescue. Not only do they give to us in the form of memorial donations from their clients’ pet losses, they also sometimes take in an animal as a rescue case. Buddy is one of those cases. His owner brought him in with a severe injury-so bad that a back leg amputation is needed. The surgery will cost hundreds of dollars the owner doesn’t have. Because Buddy is such a wonderful kitty, JSAC offered to do the surgery if the owner would surrender him to their care, allowing them to be his rescuer. The owner agreed, so JSAC reached out to us for sponsorship. Thanks to our collective philanthropy, Buddy will get the surgery he needs and be allowed to live out the rest of his life.


HPAN Pays for Buddy’s Vet Needs

Buddy was pulled from the Roane County Animal Shelter by the Animal Wellness Foundation. He wasn’t using his back leg and didn’t have much of a chance. The rescue asked us to sponsor Buddy’s exam, x-ray, vaccines, tests, dewormer, and neuter. We were happy to help! Buddy hopped a transport to Pennsylvania where he is with a rescue that will surely find him a forever home.


HPAN Adds another Rescue and Helps with Buddy

Peaceful Kingdom is a local non-profit responsible for huge rescue efforts. They recently took on a little Boston Terrier, Buddy, who had been hit by a car and needed pelvis surgery. When they reached out to us to assist with the cost of surgery and told us he’d make a full recovery, we couldn’t say no! We contributed $250 and are happy to hear that little Buddy is doing great!



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 annette@almosthometn.org.
