Pugsley needed medical attention her family could not afford, so they surrendered her to Senior Dog Lodge. We were able to sponsor her tumor removal, and she will be adopted locally or sent north to a wonderful rescue and be adopted from there. Either way, Pugsley’s future looks bright!
Both Pugsley and Sebastian were rescued from the Roane County Animal Shelter by Pet Path, a relatively new non-profit rescue organization in Roane County. Both dogs had received their initial parvo/distemper vaccines and were heartworm tested at the shelter. Pugsley was in good shape and needed only his rabies vaccine and a microchip. Sebastian, on the other hand, tested positive for heartworms and was riddled with intestinal worms. We sponsored the vetting of both dogs, paying for their exams, all remaining vaccines, microchips, Sebastian’s neuter, and the prophylaxis needed before Sebastian’s heartworm treatments can start in another month. These dogs will definitely be on a better path, thanks to Pet Path.
