We recently had the opportunity to sponsor four Campbell County Animal Shelter kitties. Glenna needed vetting for a terrible intestinal parasite. She’s thriving in foster care awaiting her forever home. Pumpkin and Paul needed vetting for an eye infection they both contracted, and they are also in foster care. Ginger was exhibiting signs of a urinary tract infection. We sponsored her exam and diagnostics, which revealed a kidney issue that is being managed.
Ginger found herself at a high kill shelter in Georgia. It was suspected that she was pregnant. Local rescue group, A Chance for Champ, got wind that Ginger would be euthanized quickly if she was not pulled into rescue, so they took her in. Ginger was showing pregnancy distress, and her temperature dropped for three days in a row, so the vet ordered a cesarean. The rescue group reached out to us for sponsorship to save Ginger’s life as well as the life within her. She had one pup. Both are doing well. Happy life, precious ones!
Ginger was found as a stray, and just before her northbound transport with Homeward Bound Dog Rescue, she tested positive for heartworms. We paid for her treatment so she can move on to a better life.
Late last year we entered a blog post when we helped the Loudon County Friends of Animals with a new rescue start-up. We recently received this from them:
Just wanted to check in with you and say thank you AGAIN for your support of our cause. Thanks to your generosity we were able to pull every available kitten that the shelter did not fix for PetSmart into rescue since we officially started in late December. A collaborative effort of LCFOA and the shelter left no kitties in the shelter on Christmas Even or New Year’s Eve!! You helped us to pull and vet so many babies. Pictured are the individual babies we pulled into foster! From Prancer, Addison, Honey, Hope, Holly, Haley, Maryann (and babies!!!),Ginger, Gilligan, Lacy, Chase, and Audrey…..THANK YOU!!!!!
