HPAN Sponsors Bundy’s Surgery with $241.61

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.

HPAN Helps Henry Get Well with $300

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.

HPAN Sponsors 5 dogs for the Humane Society of Roane County with $917.93

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.

HPAN Helps Blackie Get Well with $300

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!

We sponsored Ivy’s treatments, and we are glad her future is brighter than her past.

HPAN Tries Helping Kenny with $300

Kenny was surrendered to the Roane County Animal Shelter. He had a prolapsed rectum and needed surgery to survive any longer. He was taken to the vet immediately under the Humane Society of Roane County. So many people and groups tried to help Kenny, but unfortunately, the surgery wasn’t successful and Kenny didn’t make it. We contributed $300 to the fee in order to give him a fighting chance.

HPAN Assists HSRC with $300

Gloria originally came into the Roane County Animal Shelter as a stray. They immediately contacted the Humane Society of Roane County for help. She was diagnosed with cancer and the prognosis was grim. The rescue decided to make her last months some of the best outside of the shelter. As a hospice dog, Gloria has had many medical needs arise to help keep her comfortable as long as possible, including tumor removal, blood work, medication, etc. The rescue asked us to help with the cost of her care.

HPAN Sponsors Hazel’s Spay

Hazel came to the Humane Society of Roane County from Morgan County after being picked up as a stray by a good Samaritan.

HPAN Sends $190 to HSRC for Hazel’s Mange

Hazel was found wandering the streets of Morgan County and was picked up as a stray by a good Samaritan. She contacted the Humane Society of Roane County (HSRC) who graciously took her. Upon vetting, they learned that Hazel had an eye infection, a bad skin infection, worms, and needed to gain weight. After her initial vetting was completed, Hazel did not show signs of improvement for her skin infection. She has been diagnosed with demodex mange. The rescue reached out to HPAN for help on Hazel’s medical expenses, as demodex mange takes a long time to heal and requires medicine.
