The Maryville/Alcoa Animal Rescue Center (MAARC) recently took in these two beautiful dogs.
Sonny is just a pup who came to MAARC as a stray with a canvas belt around his neck so tight it had to be cut off. He was not neutered, flea infested, and had terribly long nails. It was obvious he had never had a family who cared for him. We sponsored $500 of his vetting, which included an exam, neuter, parasite testing, and vaccines. He is now up for adoption.
Holly was caught by animal control after running loose for several weeks. MAARC immediately took her to the vet. We sponsored $500 of her vetting, which included an exam, spay, parasite testing, and vaccines. She will eventually be up for adoption.
Two thousand dollars is A LOT of money, but it’s only a portion of the vet bills the Maryville/Alcoa Animal Rescue Center (MAARC) is responsible for on these four beautiful animals:
Maggie was abandoned by her owner, and left with someone who wasn’t allowed to have pets. She needed all of her basic vet services, including a spay surgery, so the $500 we kicked in on her bill was a big help to the rescue.
Murphy was surrendered by his owner and ended up sick with cancer. The rescue did what they could to help him, and we assisted with the bill ($500). In the end, he was humanely euthanized. At least Murphy knew he was loved.
Chanel was found with a collar embedded in her neck and one around her leg. She was in bad shape. The rescue had to have the collar surgically removed. We kicked in $500 on her medical care, and she is doing much better.
Al was picked up as a stray. One of his legs was so severely injured that it had to be removed. We were able to pay $500 on Al’s medical bill. He’s doing well as a tripod!
This old stray gal, Gladys, was lucky enough to find her way to the Maryville/Alcoa Animal Rescue Center (MAARC). MAARC staff got her to the vet and learned she has a heart murmur and a large cancerous tumor on her leg. Gladys deserves a chance, so the vet ran some diagnostics and fixed her up with vaccines, good nutrition, and medicine, and MAARC will find her a home where she can live out her life. We were GLAD to sponsor Gladys; she’s worth it!
The Maryville/Alcoa Animal Rescue Center (MAARC) recently took in three dogs in need of much vet care.
Harley, the Great Dane, was surrendered after his family suffered a house fire. They were forced to move where they could not take him. The rescue took him to the vet and found that he had heartworms. Lots of other vetting was needed, and we paid $500 toward his bill.
Blue, the hound, was found as a stray, nearly starving to death. He was full of parasites and also had heartworms. His vet care was extensive, and we contributed $500 toward his bill.
Rosie was found as a stray and had obviously been used as a breeding dog and likely dumped. She had an ovarian tumor the size of an orange. We contributed $500 toward her surgery bill.
All of these animals are making strides toward a better life thanks to the rescue and our supporters who make our sponsorships possible.
Annie was found as a stray and had been attacked by a couple dogs. She was picked up by a Good Samaritan and taken to the Maryville Alcoa Animal Rescue Center (MAARC). A volunteer rushed her to the University of Tennessee Veterinary Medical Center where Annie had emergency surgery. Unfortunately, Annie passed away the next day, but the rescue was left with a bill for over $4,000. We contributed $300 to help them, and we hope animal lovers far and wide will consider helping as well.
Tiny Zoey was found as a stray and landed at the Maryville City Shelter. The Maryville/Alcoa Animal Rescue Center (MAARC) took her under their wing and got her the vet care she needed, which included dental work and treatment for her skin issues. We were honored to help with the mounting vet bill so this little lady can find a home that will take better care of her.
Ouiser was a housecat whose owners left her behind outside when they moved. A nice neighbor was feeding her and noticed her teeth were in bad shape, so they brought her to the Maryville/Alcoa Animal Rescue Center (MAARC) to get her some medical help. MAARC gladly took Ouiser in and got her the vet care she needed to eliminate her pain and help her be able to eat. When they asked for our help, we gladly agreed!
