Henry, Hattie, Hank, Starling, Dottie, Harry, and Hector were living in squalor before the Blount County Animal Welfare Society offered help to their owner. They convinced him to surrender the dogs to them so they could have a better quality of life. We sponsored basic vetting for all the dogs to ensure their health before they transported north for adoption.
These two beauties landed at the Maryville/Alcoa Animal Rescue Center after years of neglect. Henry was skinny and had terrible teeth. They were so painful that he couldn’t eat properly. We were able to kick in $500 toward his dental and other vet needs. Magnolia was also in poor condition with awful skin issues and missing patches of fur. We also paid $500 on her vet bill. Both of these dogs are now on the path of wellness and happiness.
Almost Home Animal Rescue asked us to help with these sweet ones for a myriad of needs from basic vet care to extensive would treatment:
Lily May – Is a sweet senior girl that her owner decided to get rid of after twelve years. She has been sad, but she is slowly coming around.
Leche – Owner surrendered.
Charlie 2 – Owner surrender
Blossom – She was rescued out of the shelter. Another rescue committed to taking her until they found out that she was FIV positive.
Amanda’s Puppies – This is the first half of eventually 15 puppies that came in. The two mothers were sisters, and they had one father. The owner gave up the first half unwillingly and eventually, gave up the other half much later. Some of the puppies would have died because they were so small and full of worms.
Henry – This handsome fellow was turned into the pound with his buddy. Their owner had to go into a nursing home and would not be back for them. Henry’s buddy was pulled out of the shelter minutes before he would be killed. Well, the same goes for Henry, but he came to us.
Cooper – A foster approached a homeless person to trade fifty dollars and a pack of cigarettes for Cooper. The deal was made.
Augustus (Gus) – This sweet man ended up in the shelter, where it looked to be that someone tried to cut his head off. He is starting to get better but it has taken a lot to get here.
Henry was part of a stray cat colony at a Clinton trailer park. Being highly adoptable, Spay It Forward East Tennessee scooped him up and took him to the vet for basic stuff, like combo testing, vaccines, and a neuter. Turned out he was underweight because he had a hard time eating due to stomatitis, a gum disease that neglected cats can get. Henry needed ALL of his teeth extracted, which we were able to sponsor. He will live out the rest of his life in an indoor home where soft food is endless!
The Humane Society of East Tennessee took in four animals with special needs and asked for our help. Henry was an owner surrender and presented with toxoplasmosis needing treatment. Pretty Girl was also an owner surrender and needed help with her diabetes treatments. Dash was found as a stray and needed a dental so he could eat. ChiChi was abandoned with her groomer and needed a dental plus a tumor removed
Henry was found abandoned and starving in a garage after his owner had passed away. He was dehydrated and clinging to life. The Humane Society of Roane County came to Henry’s rescue and got him straight to the vet, where he began a regimen of fluids, medication, and good nutrition. He received all the vetting he needed to be set up for a lifetime of success. We were able to sponsor this for him.
When thirty cats from a hoarding situation were taken to Young Williams Animal Center, the outlook was not good. However, through networking and fundraising, most all of the cats were saved and picked up by rescues. HPAN was able to send $245 to sponsor the adoption of the cats pictured here. This paid for the needed pre-adoption vet care. All these kitties are doing well!
The six cats pictured here from left to right are Henry (in the basket), Candace (in a box), and Prince Edward. The bottom row features Tia (also in a box), Oreo, and Layla.
Poor little Henry was surrendered to an animal control officer. It was noticed that he was eaten up with a bad case of Demodex (demodectic mange), and he was just overall oppressed. Thankfully, Homeward Bound Dog Rescue stepped up and took in Henry. They called on HPAN to help with his vetting. We gladly donated $100 toward his vet care.
