Koda was advertised on Craigslist as a free dog. The family that took him was not told he was having seizures and needed medical care, so they contacted the Humane Society of Roane County (HSRC) to ask for help. HSRC took Koda to their vet for observation and diagnostics, and put him on a path of wellness. He will soon be ready for adoption. We paid $300 toward the bill.
Gus is part of a hoarding case of nearly 40 animals. The owner is releasing several animals at a time to the Humane Society of Roane County. Gus is one of the sicker ones. He had to be taken straight to the vet for blood work, antibiotics, and basic vaccines. We paid $300 on his vet bill.

Magneto, Storm, Phoenix, Professor X, Mesquite, Beans, and Rice were pulled from the Roane County Animal Shelter by the Humane Society of Roane County.

Bundy was the victim of an accident gone bad. His owner’s child slammed his tail in the car door and then decided to pull on it. As a reaction, Bundy snapped at the child, so he was surrendered to a local shelter. Poor Bundy found himself without a working tail or a family. Thankfully, the Humane Society of Roane County stepped up and took him in. We sponsored Bundy’s surgery and neuter, and he will be on his way to a wonderful northern rescue and in foster care before he is approved for adoption.
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.
Thistle, Latke, Buttercup, Mistletoe, and Holly were left unattended and starving after their owner passed away. Law enforcement was called in, and they called Senior Dog Lodge & Animal Rescue. There was no room for the dogs at the rescue, so they called Homeward Bound Dog Rescue and the Humane Society of Roane County who stepped up and immediately took them to the vet. All the dogs were given an exam, medicine where needed, vaccines, dewormer, and all have now been spayed/neutered.
Blackie has a sad story. He was a stray for many months. He is missing an ear, and his back paw is pretty mangled. He’d also been shot many times. Blackie is a survivor, yet he couldn’t evade the trap set by the Humane Society of Roane County when they lured him in with tasty wet food. Blackie is now at the vet receiving wound care, and he’s been neutered and vaccinated. His bill is in the hundreds. We contributed $300 toward his care because he’s worth it!
Ivy’s owners left her after their house burned. She was literally with nobody to take care of her. To the rescue was the Humane Society of Roane County! They have taken Ivy to the vet for a thorough check-up, which revealed heartworms, a parasite caused by mosquito bites. We sponsored Ivy’s treatments, and we are glad her future is brighter than her past.
