Marley was pulled from Roane County Animal Shelter by Halos Second Chance after he was surrendered by his owner. Marley had glaucoma in both eyes and was completely blind. Both of his eyes had to be removed. He is also heartworm positive. As expected, his vet bill is steep. We contributed $300 to cover his eye surgery, neuter, medication, and some of his heartworm treatment.
The Secret City Animal Rescue (SCAR) has a mission of saving as many Oak Ridge Animal Shelter cats as possible. Their vet bill runs in the thousands of dollars. A successful fundraiser whittled the balance, but not enough where they felt like they could continue to vet the sick cats. We felt that by paying down their balance, which covered multiple cats, they would be able to focus on saving more, so that’s what we did with a $1000 donation to their veterinarian. In addition, we donated $390 to this newly-formed, non-profit rescue, so they could spay two shelter cats and purchase some combo tests. It’s all about prevention!
