Finn was seized by Campbell County Animal Control from an abuse/neglect situation with his buddy, Pumpkin. Finn was treated for malnourishment and an urinary tract infection. The shelter group, Friends of Campbell County Animals, asked us to pay for Finn’s vet check, vaccines, testing, medication, and hospitalization. He’s doing so much better!
Brandon, Freda, and Cassie were taken to the Campbell County Animal Shelter and needed some specialized vet care. For a variety of conditions from infections to needed surgery, these babies needed our help. We were glad to be there for them. All kitties are in foster care while they await adoption.
Millie was seized by animal control in February 2020 because of neglect and taken to the Campbell County Animal Shelter. She was evaluated by a vet for her skin condition, which was diagnosed as demodex mange. The shelter group asked us to sponsor her exams and testing for $37, and they had the prescribed medicine at the shelter. Millie is already on her way to a better life!
Ellie Mae was taken to the Campbell County Animal Shelter after her human mom passed away suddenly. Not knowing any of her previous history, they took her to the vet after noticing seizure activity. The seizures have subsided due to a prescribed regimen, and Ellie Mae is doing well. We were asked to sponsor her exam, blood work and medicine.
Lucy Lou was taken to the Campbell County Animal Shelter when she was seized by animal control in February 2020 due to neglect. She was housed outside with her source of shelter being the glass picnic table she was chained to. Lucy Lou was a tad skinny, but her main problem was a significant heartworm load. The shelter got her heartworms treated, but she had some complications and had to be taken to the vet for additional medication. We were able to sponsor this needed care. The first photo was taken when she was taken to the shelter. The second photo is of her smiling in her foster home. Lucy Lou finally knows she’s loved.
We recently purchased 100 microchips for the Campbell County Animal Shelter. This will help them jumpstart their chip program so adopted animals are more likely to return home if they are lost and brought in for scanning.
Ten dogs from the Campbell County Animal Shelter are happier and healthier from our sponsorship. Funds were needed to care for Shiloh’s flea allergy, Shrek’s injuries from being hit by a car, and for Ruffie and Bunny’s skin infections. Additionally, we sponsored a health certificate so a little terrier family of six, Huckleberry, Harley, Biscuit, Izzy, Katie, and Roscoe, could travel to their northern rescue. All it took was $189 to help all these!
We recently had the opportunity to sponsor four Campbell County Animal Shelter kitties. Glenna needed vetting for a terrible intestinal parasite. She’s thriving in foster care awaiting her forever home. Pumpkin and Paul needed vetting for an eye infection they both contracted, and they are also in foster care. Ginger was exhibiting signs of a urinary tract infection. We sponsored her exam and diagnostics, which revealed a kidney issue that is being managed.
Holly was found by a good Samaritan in LaFollette on Dec 7, 2019. She believed she had been hit by a car since she was lying in a ditch. She kept her until she could get her to the Campbell County Animal Shelter (CCAS) on Monday morning. Upon being surrendered to the shelter, they immediately took her to the UT vet hospital. They also believed she had been hit by a car. She had a significant injury to her right jaw, face and mouth. They were hopeful that her injuries weren’t significant despite the appearance. Her will to live was so apparent. Holly was examined by the doctors at UT, and it was determined that she was not hit by a car and had some other significant trauma from a gunshot. Her injury likely didn’t happen on Saturday as the remaining bone was already dead and significant infection had set in. She was also very dehydrated despite the finder syringing fluids. Holly was given hydromorphine and sent back to the shelter for a decision as to what path to take with her. Unfortunately, UT estimated her immediate future care to cost between $5500 and $10,500. At the last minute, Big Fluffy Dog Rescue agreed to take her and her future medical expenses into their program. Shelter staff drove her to meet them late that night. She is now in the care of Big Fluffy Dog Rescue and will receive the multiple surgeries that are necessary. CCAS requested we assist with Holly’s initial medical evaluation for $128.80.
Storm was neutered and placed for adoption at the Campbell County Animal Shelter. He began feeling lethargic and not acting like himself. He was sent to foster for closer observation. Mid-week he stopped greeting his foster and lost all interest in interaction. Storm was taken to a private veterinarian who diagnosed him with a blood infection. He was sent home with medication and special food. Storm began throwing up and wouldn’t eat. As the hours progressed, his foster decided to take him to UTVMC. At UT, Storm was diagnosed with what is believed to be wet form FIP. Storm has good days and bad days. His prognosis is unknown as is his foster/adoption situation. We believe he may be a hospice type of placement. Nonetheless, we were able to contribute $124 toward his initial care.
