These precious pups were hit by a car in Morgan County and taken to the Senior Dog Lodge & Animal Rescue. They were rushed to the Animal Emergency and Specialty Center where Dixie was treated for head trauma and Trixie was treated for broken bones in her legs and pelvis. They are lucky to be alive and still have a ways to go, but at least they have a chance at living a good life.
Spay It Forward took these four into rescue as strays or owner surrenders. After treating a myriad of issues from abdominal mass, respiratory infections, eye issues, etc. with our $315 sponsorship, Amelia, Dixie, Sasha, and Sickie are on their way to better health!
Dixie was pulled from a Tennessee animal shelter by Almost Home Animal Rescue. The shelter failed to give Dixie her vaccine booster one month after her initial vaccine, so she contracted parvo and nearly died. The rescue went in debt $1,400 to keep Dixie alive. We kicked in $300 on the bill.
Dixie was one of the most overlooked dogs at Roane County Animal Shelter. She was scared, confused, and heartbroken. She would stay in the back of her kennel, and honestly, no one ever noticed her. The Animal Wellness Foundation immediately pulled her into rescue. They knew Dixie needed a little extra TLC time before heading to Buffalo, NY to rescue. She was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection, possible signs of pneumonia, and she is heartworm positive. She’s now ready for her heartworm treatment at Volunteer Vet Hospital, but the rescue has only $200 left and her treatment is $350. We kicked in the additional $150 needed.
