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.
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!
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.
Almost Home Animal Rescue took in Finn, Bonnie, Clyde, Sandy, Ned, Callie, Lily, Bess, Nancy, Cupcake, Bronson, Todd, and Bruno from shelters or as owner surrenders. All of them needed exams, vaccines, dewormer, spay/neuter, parasite testing, etc., and some needed medicine and additional services. All of these dogs are now happy and healthy, and we were able to pay their vet bills totaling $2,164.67.
Riley, Sparky, Jasper, and Callie are all pups that Chica delivered while at Pet Path. They acquired Chica from her owner who was selling her on social media because she was pregnant. Pet Path wanted to save her from becoming a breeding machine as well as making sure her babies would not be able to reproduce. We sponsored Chica’s heartworm test, spay, vaccines, and microchip, as well as final vaccines, spay/neuter, and microchips for her babies. Pippa and Paisley are siblings that came from the Cleveland, TN shelter and were at risk of euthanasia. We sponsored their heartworm tests and health certificates to get them ready for transport. We also sponsored Ally’s health certificate. Storm, Meeko, Odd Ball, Bell, and Marshall are siblings that were all found by a good Samaritan on the side of the road. He was nice enough to get them to his home and another fellow rescuer administered their first round of vaccines. Pet Path later took them in. We sponsored their final round of vaccines, spay/neuter, and microchip.
Recently, a little kitty family of five was taken to the shelter, all abandoned right here at the holidays. Thankfully, the Loudon County Friends of Animals was there and pulled them into rescue. HPAN was called on to assist with their vetting, which includes FIV/FeLV testing, spay/neuter, deworming, ear cleaning, vaccines, and flea preventive. According to their rescuer, “These babies get the works.” We contributed $250 to cover the expenses. Two of the kitties have been adopted and will be picked up over the Thanksgiving weekend. Now that is something to be thankful for!
