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
Bridgett has been living at the Humane Society of East Tennessee for a few years. She is bonded with Pebbles, and they must be adopted together. Since one is black and one is a tabby, they often get passed over. Bridgette was having trouble eating and just wasn’t herself. A vet visit revealed she had stomatitis, inflammation of the gums. We sponsored her diagnostics and vet care.
These gorgeous kitties were found on someone’s porch in an area highly populated with coyotes. The homeowner contacted the Humane Society of East Tennessee, and the kitties immediately found themselves in a better position, especially since Midnight had a severe compound fracture in one of her legs. The sisters were taken to the vet where they received vaccines, testing, spay surgeries, and leg repair.
Siblings, Storm and Bella, found themselves with the Humane Society of East Tennessee when their owner had to be placed into a nursing home. Both dogs needed some basic vetting. A heart murmur was detected in Storm, who now needs medication. HPAN sponsored these needs for $535.11.
Autumn was found as a stray in Knoxville along with another dog, who was placed into a home immediately after complete vetting. Autumn, on the other hand, had a bad case of heartworms, which come from mosquito bites. She went into the Humane Society of East Tennessee’s foster program and started the 8-week treatment. We paid half her vet bill to relieve some of the rescue’s financial burden. Autumn is on a monthly prevention program and will never have to worry about heartworms again.
Pebbles had a recurring dental disease, called Stomatitis, causing her to be allergic to the bacteria in her own mouth. She was in desperate need of rescue from the Blount County Animal Center. In stepped the Humane Society of East Tennessee to her rescue! After many rounds of antibiotics and steroid injections, her vet recommended that some of her teeth be removed. HPAN sponsored much of her recent vet bill. Pebbles is doing much better and is ready for her forever home.
Meka was pulled into rescue by the Humane Society of East Tennessee due to neglect. She had severe allergies, terrible teeth, and was being used as a breeder dog. The rescue had her spayed and made sure her skin allergies were healed. She also had a digestive issue they had to address, and now she’s having seizures. HPAN sponsored Meka’s vetting by helping the rescue pay off some of her previous bills and helped pay for additional testing needed to address her seizures and digestive problems.
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!
Big Maine Coon, Remington, was found as a stray and taken in by the Humane Society of East Tennessee. He was sick with a urinary tract infection, anemia, and mouth ulcers. His prescribed vet care included blood work, a dental cleaning, and complete shave down (since he wasn’t able to groom himself). After much TLC, Remington finally became well enough to be adopted, but the rescue was left with a big vet bill, to which we contributed $300.
