Both Oak Ridge and Campbell County animal shelters have a goal of vaccinating cats upon intake to reduce the spread of illness in the shelter environment. Vaccines cost roughly $3 each, but shelters cannot afford this expense due to the sheer number needed. Funds must come from volunteers and rescues. We at HPAN want to support this effort, so we contributed a total of $290 to these shelters for the purchase of 100 vaccines. Won’t you consider paying for a few vaccines?
These two precious babies were abandoned at the Campbell County Animal Shelter. Thankfully, a rescuer was there at the time! They were extremely frightened, but after being held and loved for a period, both dogs melted in her arms as if at one point in their lives someone loved had them. She pulled them into her Mad Dog Rescue immediately and had them to the vet within a week. We were called on to assist with their veterinary care (vaccines, parasite tests, and altering), which we were happy to do!
