Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue took in two strays and put them on the good life path. Sassy broke with Parvo and needed vet care, for which we sponsored at $200, and Maybelle tested positive for heartworms. We kicked in $300 on her treatment.
Gracee and Teeter found themselves at the Roane County Animal Shelter. Old and sick, their chances at adoption were slim, so Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue came to the rescue. Both dogs were taken to the vet for an exam ASAP. Gracee was found to have a urinary tract infection and an enlarged heart, for which she is now on medication. We sponsored all of this plus her rabies vaccine. Teeter had complications during his neuter due to a heart murmur that was discovered, so we sponsored his medical needs as well. Both of these dogs are in foster care and waiting for someone to adopt them. They deserve a get home before their time is up.
Grace was found as a stray and ended up at the Roane County Animal Shelter. Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue took her in and found that she had a bad case of heartworms. She received treatment and is resting. A sanctuary in Pennsylvania is taking Grace into their program, so they sent some funds on her treatment cost, and HPAN kicked in $55.48 to pay the balance. Grace is in for a wonderful life, never to be a stray again!
Monty is a senior dog pulled from the Roane County Animal Shelter by Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue. He had a severe infection that had his right eye matted shut, as well as a yeast infection on his skin. We paid for his veterinary exam, antibiotic ointment for his eye, oral antibiotics for his skin, as well as his rabies vaccine, and heartworm test. Monty will now know the good life!
A litter of puppies was found abandoned at the Anderson County Animal Shelter at 2 weeks of age, after the mother was hit by a car and killed. Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue took them in, and fosters immediately began bottle feeding them. They unfortunately lost two of the male puppies very quickly overnight. At about 5 weeks of age, one of the other males in the litter began having upper respiratory problems and passed away within 15 minutes of arriving at the emergency vet. And most recently, the last male presented with upper respiratory problems and was rushed to Pellissippi Vet, where he also passed away within 15 minutes of arrival. Halos volunteers are treating the three girls, Hope, Grace, and Faith with antibiotics and nebulizer breathing treatments. We paid a good portion of their vet bill.
Sweet Raggedy Andy was found abandoned and alone as a stray in Roane County. He was brought to the Roane County shelter, and Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue was immediately called for help. Andy was very cold, scared, and was so matted that we were not sure what gender he was until we got him to Volunteer Vet and they were able to shave him down some. Raggedy Andy also had open wounds around his neck and ears, consistent with being attacked by another dog or animal. This sweet boy also had a large tumor on his belly, dragging on the ground. We contributed $300 to the cost of his surgery and basic vetting. Once sweet Andy is healthy, he will be placed for adoption to find his FURever home with Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue.
Roy was surrendered to the Roane County Animal Shelter when his owner lost his home. Roy was thin and sickly. The shelter called on Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue who gladly took in Roy and asked us for help. Roy’s medical exam revealed heartworms, so we sponsored his treatment for $300. He will be resting in foster care until the heartworms are eradicated, and then he will be available for adoption.
Big Ben was abandoned by his owner as a puppy. He survived by going house to house for food in his neighborhood and quickly became feral. When one of the neighbors noticed his collar was deeply embedded in his neck, he called animal control and a trap was set. Big Ben was taken to the shelter and found to be in serious condition. Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue stepped up to pull Big Ben and get him to the vet. He underwent a long and tedious surgery to remove the collar and save as much tissue as possible. We kicked in $300 on his vet bill.
