Dolly is a 5 year old Bulldog who was rescued from a breeding situation. She was only used to make pups and then given away. She was turned in again and given away to a third home. This home had no knowledge of the care needed for a Bulldog and left her with a horrible skin condition, untreated ear infections, fleas, and unspayed. A nice lady rescued her and called the Humane Society of East Tennessee (HSET). Dolly’s spay surgery, vaccines, heartworm test, ear/skin treatment, and complete dental left the rescue with a $780 bill. We chipped in $300, giving HSET the ability to help another animal. Dolly is now ready for adoption!
Dolly was a stray in the community and approached several people for help; however, due to the condition she was in, no one would help her. Several people had threatened to shoot her. She was taken to a local shelter and placed on stray hold, but no one stepped forward to claim her. The shelter’s volunteers asked us for funding assistance for treatment. We were happy to help! Dolly will be on her way to a rescue in Pennsylvania soon!
Dolly came to the Oak Ridge Animal Shelter several weeks ago very sick-too sick to make it in a shelter environment. She was bloated with parasites, severely malnourished, and had a terrible skin infection. Nothing the shelter’s vet could do for her was helping. A volunteer with the Friends of Oak Ridge Animal Shelter (FORAS) agreed to take her into foster care and try to put her on a path of wellness, increasing her chances at adoption by giving her medicated baths and antibiotics. Dolly fell ill recently and was rushed to UT Veterinary Clinic at 4 a.m. UT gave her IV fluids, medicine, took blood, and shot some x-rays. When she started to perk up, UT referred her back to Oak Ridge Veterinary Hospital, where her test results were evaluated. HPAN contributed $250 toward her medical bill. Dolly likely had a reaction to her medication, and she is doing much better. She is ready for her forever family.
