Whiskey came to the Campbell County Animal Shelter with a high load of heartworms. Plus, he hadn’t been neutered. The shelter group reached out to us for help, and we were able to sponsor his surgery and treatment. Recovery will be long and difficult, but he is expected to make it.
Lady was surrendered to the Campbell County Animal Shelter by her owner. She had not been spayed or kept on heartworm prevention. Unfortunately, she tested positive for heartworms, but the Friends of Campbell County Animals (FCCA) came to the rescue and started her on a 30-day regimen of antibiotics prior to her heartworm treatment injections. When it came time for the injections, FCCA reached out for us to sponsor the cost of that as well as Lady’s spay surgery. No more heartworms and no more pups for this fine gal!
Raven was rescued by the Friends of Campbell County Animals (FCCA). She had a broken leg and a severe case of mange, which have been treated. FCCA called upon us to help with Raven’s spay surgery. We gladly paid the $75 needed to her vet. Once she is all healed up, she will be available for adoption. Anyone interested in Raven should contact Friends of Campbell County, Tennessee Animals via Facebook.
Recently, Friends of Campbell County Animals (FCCA) called upon us to help with two emergency cases. Indy had been hit by a car and was diagnosed with a broken pelvis. He needed x-rays, pain medications, and rest. Charley was pregnant and in duress as her labor began. She was rushed to the vet for an emergency c-section and spay. The puppies did not make it, and only surgery spared Charley’s life. She is recovering comfortably at a foster home. Both dogs will be adopted out once they’re fully healed. We were glad to cover the fees totaling $423.50 for these precious dogs.
The Friends of Campbell County Animals (FCCA) recently hosted an online campaign to raise funds for Mocha, a rescued foster dog who is heartworm positive. The campaign was well underway when HPAN noticed the rescue was $50 shy of meeting their financial goal, so we stepped up and made a $50 contribution to Mocha’s vet so she could get the needed treatment.
The Friends of Campbell County, Tennessee Animals does a tremendous job pulling animals from their shelter, ensuring they’re vetted, and putting them in foster homes or on transports to no-kill shelters and other rescues. The dollars add up for vet services, medicine, and preventatives. To help FCCA with these costs, and to specifically help two of their special needs dogs, we paid $500 directly to their vet clinic. This funding will help Mason and Chance get well again. Mason has a foot abnormality that is causing him pain, and he needs surgery. Chance was diagnosed with heartworms just prior to her transport, but she is expected to get better with treatment. We at HPAN are happy that our funds will help FCCA take care of these dogs.
