Campbell County Animal Shelter Animals Get Our Help with $857.37

Clifford was taken to the shelter as a stray in October of last year. The staff immediately scheduled his neuter in preparation of finding his forever family. During his neuter, a mass was found in his throat. After biopsy and other testing, it was determined to be a fast growing, inoperable tumor. Clifford exhibited no symptoms even with a grim prognosis. He was immediately placed in hospice foster care and has been living his best life with his foster mom and dad until recently when he suddenly developed a worrisome and constant cough. He was taken to UT ER for evaluation and treatment of his symptoms. Clifford continues to live and love with his foster parents and foster siblings. We covered Clifford’s diagnostics and medication for $272.

Chuck was brought to the shelter as a stray, possibly hit by a car. He was found lying in a ditch and couldn’t stand. After several x-rays, it was determined that his spine and pelvis were broken. He received crate rest and was transferred to Small Breed Rescue of East TN for further evaluation and treatment. We covered his exam and x-rays for $90.

Darci was surrendered to the shelter after giving birth to one stillborn kitten in February. She was taken to the vet for evaluation after it was determined she may have a kitten stuck in the birth canal. Darci needed an emergency cesarean section and finally a spay. None of her kittens survived. This beautiful girl is in foster and is recovering nicely. We paid her vet services, which cost $495.37.

River Gets Heartworm Treatment with HPAN’s Help

This is the second time River has shown up on our blog. We had the opportunity to sponsor his neuter when he was passed from the Campbell County Animal Shelter to Rockin’ Community Cats because, as we’ve said before, they love dogs, too. Last week we got to sponsor his heartworm treatment for $245. River is under strict rest in foster care. He will be available for adoption in about six weeks!

River and Sheba Get $274 from HPAN

Both River and Sheba were “code red” at Campbell County Animal Shelter. Sheba appeared to be very pregnant, and River tested positive for heartworms. Both dogs were pulled by a volunteer with Rockin’ Community Cats because they love dogs, too. Turns out, Sheba was just overweight and not pregnant, so we were able to sponsor her spay surgery. We also paid for the first steps of River’s heartworm eradiation plan. More will be paid out later. Once both of these dogs are healed and adoptable, they will travel north for adoption!

HPAN Helps Two Dogs with Heartworm Treatment with $509

Loretta and Miles have similar stories. They were found as strays, taken to the Campbell County Animal Shelter, and tested positive for heartworms. Neither had microchips, and sadly no family members came looking for them. The Friends of Campbell County Animals started both of these beauties on Doxycycline to prepare them for heartworm treatment injections, and then they called us. We had the opportunity to pay for the treatment, as well as spay/neuter. Loretta and Miles are recovering in foster care and will be available for adoption when they are good as new! Heartworms are caused by a single mosquito bite yet can be so easily avoided with monthly prevention. Prevention is much cheaper than the cure and is certainly easier on the animal.

Wynona Gets Spayed and a Healthy Heart!

Animal control brought Wynona and her four puppies from a cemetery, where they had been abandoned, to the Campbell County Animal Shelter. The puppies were vetted and sent to a northern rescue. Wynona stayed behind for pretreatment medication for her heartworm disease. The Friends of Campbell County Animals asked if we would sponsor her remaining vet needs (rabies vaccine, spay surgery, heartworm treatment and medication, and boarding). We were happy to cover the $272 bill. This gorgeous girl will recover in foster care and hopefully be adopted locally.

Flower Gets Treated for Heartworms with $176

Rockin’ Community Cats asked us to sponsor Flower when she was pulled from the Campbell County Animal Shelter. Initially, we sponsored her spay surgery and rabies vaccine. She was also heartworm-positive, so we had to wait for healing from her spay surgery before getting those worms eradicated from her heart. The treatment was a few days ago, and this photo was taken with her rescuer the day we paid the vet bill.

Flower Gets Spayed Now and Will Be Treated for Heartworms in Two Weeks!

This beautiful dog, Flower, came in as a stray to Campbell County Animal Shelter with her two puppies. Rockin’ Community Cats fell in love with her and took her into their program. We had the opportunity to pay $75 for her spay surgery. Unfortunately, she tested positive for heartworms, so we will also cover her treatment on September 29. Then Flower will blossom like never before!

HPAN Sponsors Slash with $284.51

Slash was taken to the Campbell County Animal Shelter with three other siblings by his owner who said they were fighting. After some investigation, it was determined there were four large adult dogs living in a 10×10 outside kennel. They fought for space, food, and attention. Slash had a severe bit wound requiring surgery, which we sponsored.

Rockin’ Community Cats Saves Dogs, Too!

Max and Pharaoh were lucky to be rescued from the Campbell County Animal Shelter by a cat rescue! These boys have a sad past and needed various vet services. We were able to sponsor their neuters, parasite testing, and even a dental for $285. Their lives are already better than before!

HPAN Pays $439 to Help Campbell County Animal Shelter with Three Dogs

Shelly was surrendered to the shelter by her family who could not properly care for her. We paid for her spay surgery. 

Priscilla was taken to the shelter as a stray. She tested positive for heartworms, so we sponsored her treatment as well as her spay.

Gracie was also a stray who had been hanging out at the local middle school for a while begging for handouts. She also tested positive for heartworms, so we sponsored her treatment, too.

All these beautiful girls are recovering in foster care prior to being available for adoption.
