The Humane Society of East Tennessee (HSET) is currently stifled because of the number of rescue animals they’ve taken in and helped over the last several months. Brutus, Foxy, Winnie, Harlee, Grizzly, Hiccup, Salem, Will Jackshund, and their latest rescue Jeb have all been saved by HSET, received their basic vet care, and are available for adoption. Left in their wake is a bill of over four grand. We decided to pay $1000 of their bill at Tri County Veterinary Clinic to relieve a little bit of their burden. Donations can be called in to (865)428-5795.
Dolly is a 5 year old Bulldog who was rescued from a breeding situation. She was only used to make pups and then given away. She was turned in again and given away to a third home. This home had no knowledge of the care needed for a Bulldog and left her with a horrible skin condition, untreated ear infections, fleas, and unspayed. A nice lady rescued her and called the Humane Society of East Tennessee (HSET). Dolly’s spay surgery, vaccines, heartworm test, ear/skin treatment, and complete dental left the rescue with a $780 bill. We chipped in $300, giving HSET the ability to help another animal. Dolly is now ready for adoption!
The Humane Society of East Tennessee is one of our newest sponsored rescue organizations, whose mission is to find homes for animals that are abandoned and homeless. They reached out to us for assistance with two dogs in their care. Luna, an owner-surrender, came to the rescue very sick at 10 weeks old. She was in desperate need of liver surgery. Our sponsorship helped them on the vet bill. Rio’s situation was self-inflicted, as he ingested a blanket, which required surgery to clear the blockage in his body. Again, our sponsorship helped them on the bill.
