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.

Winnie Gets Heartworm Treatment

Winnie is one of several dogs from the Campbell County Animal Shelter with heartworms. The Friends of Campbell County Animals asked us to help sponsor her treatments, so we applied $500 because her sweet heart is worth it.

Baby Mae Gets Pregnancy Check

Baby Mae was a stray and in obvious distress when the Friends of Campbell County Animals took her to the vet. They suspected she might be pregnant and in labor. The radiographs we sponsored determined she had given birth very recently, but her puppies were not found in the area. Baby Mae was pulled by a rescue and is getting the love and care she so needs.

Boss Gets X-Rays for $125

Boss was found on someone’s porch bleeding from the mouth and nose. Staff from the Friends of Campbell County Animals took him directly to Jacksboro Veterinary Services for an exam and evaluation. They believe Boss was hit by a car before finding his way to someone’s porch. Thankfully, he doesn’t have any broken bones and just has some serious bruising. He is recovering at the shelter before being adopted. We are so glad to help Boss make a full recovery!

HPAN Assits CJ with Heartworm Treatment and Spay

CJ was brought in as a stray by animal control to the Campbell County Animal Shelter. Unfortunately, she tested positive for heartworms. CJ began a 30 day regimen of doxycycline at the shelter and went for heartworm treatment injections and a spay on January 25. She will complete 30 days crate rest in foster care and will be re-evaluated at that time. HPAN covered CJ’s heartworm treatment and spay.

HPAN Helps Senior Dog

Ivy was brought in by a good samaritan who found her on the side of the creek in Ivy Dell.  She was freezing, had very long nails, and seemed to be in overall poor condition.  Campbell County Animal Shelter staff rushed her to the vet where she was warmed up and received a blood glucose test which revealed high blood sugar. Ivy’s nails were trimmed to a managable length, and she was given a kenalog injection.   HPAN paid for Ivy’s vetting.

Ivy is described as sweet, loving, and having a most humble and grateful soul. She is starting to play and feel good. Because Ivy is estimated to be 10+ years old, she will go to local rescue.

HPAN Helps Cassie Recover

Cassie was surrendered with her littermates by their owner to the Campbell County Animal Shelter. The reason for their surrender was “not enough time to take care of them.” This was painfully obvious since a collar was embedded in Cassie’s neck! Fortunately, the siblings didn’t have collars on! Sadly, the skin had started to grow into her neck, and the situation was very painful for Cassie. The shelter staff removed the collar and started her on oral antibiotics. The veterinarian sedated Cassie and cleaned her wound. She is on continued oral antibiotics and will get sugar wrap changes every other day. HPAN paid for Cassie’s treatment, and she is recovering nicely! We were so happy to help!

Wound Treatment for Rocky

Rocky was brought in as a stray to the Campbell County Animal Shelter. He had a wound on his face and at the base of his ear. The wounds were horribly infected. Rocky was taken to the vet for evaluation and treatment by Friends of Campbell County Animals. After sedating him, the wound was clipped and cleaned. HPAN paid for Rocky’s wound treatment.

After 14 days of oral antibiotics, his wounds are almost completely healed! After Rocky is better, he will go into rescue and will be looking for his fur-ever home!

HPAN Helps Save Sam with Sponsorship

Sam was surrendered to animal control after being hit by a car. He was in a great deal of pain and was taken to the vet for evaluation by the Friends of Campbell County Animals. After being examined and receiving x-rays, it was determined he has multiple pelvic fractures and was in need of an approximate $6K surgery, including five plates. Sam was taken back to the shelter for euthanasia, but in the meantime, a rescue called and agreed to transfer him to their program. He was transferred to Nashville later in the night. Sam is so very lucky, and we were glad to sponsor his local vet bill of $124.
