The original picture of this sweet puppy was too graphic to post. She would not have made it much longer had a good Samaritan not spoken up this week. Roane County animal control intervened and contacted K9 Lifeline Rescue (K9LR) in Kingston. K9LR requested assistance, and we contributed $300 to the required surgery for this baby girl, Daphne. She is going to live because of this village effort! You can help Daphne by paying on K9LR’s vet bill at Karns Animal Clinic.
For the second year in a row, HPAN has had the ability to offer sponsored rescue organizations the opportunity to bid on grants for capital improvements. This year, we are proud to announce that there were two recipients who were awarded a total of $10K in January. The East Tennessee Miniature Horse and Donkey Rescue (ETMHDR) and K9 Lifeline Rescue, Inc. (K9LR) presented proposals covering their needs for sustainable areas of refuge for their rescue animals. ETMHDR, a fairly new organization rescuing mini equines, had a huge need for separate paddocks, dry lots, and adequate shelter. Our grant enabled them to get busy on this worthy goal. K9LR had already built “The Dog House,” where all of their rescued dogs live with a caretaker, but they had a goal to add on to the house an area for indoor play, meet & greets, dog training/socialization, etc. Our grant enabled them to finish The Dog House.
Both of these fine rescue organizations are doing an excellent job saving animals in dire need. We are happy to be partners in their mission.
Both Wiley and Mandi contracted heartworms. They were thankfully rescued from the Roane County Animal Shelter by K9 Lifeline Rescue. We sponsored the treatment needed. These dogs will go on to live a great life.
K9 Lifeline Rescue (K9LR), Inc. had a vision to clear the Roane County Animal Shelter for Christmas, so they went in on Christmas Eve and pulled 18 dogs, knowing these would add to the expense of the last group they pulled. Of the last group, five had special needs. We assisted with the expenses associated with Bobo’s laceration repair, Dottie’s lumpectomy, Annie’s benign tumor removal, Sky’s parvo treatment, and Toby’s x-rays and needs from being hit by a car. All of these precious babies are on their way to a happy ever after and are available for adoption through K9LR, Inc. in Kingston, Tennessee.
