Ace was taken to the Roane County Animal Shelter and found to have an injured leg. The shelter staff reached out to Roane County Paws (RCP) who came to the rescue. Ace was immediately taken to the vet for evaluation. The vet believes his leg injury is the result of a gunshot. HPAN sponsored Ace’s x-rays, exam, pain medication, and vaccines. Ace will likely end up having surgery on his leg, and then he will be available for adoption through RCP.
Suzy and her three puppies were in need of rescue in Morgan County, where there is no shelter or animal control. Roane County Paws (RCP) graciously took her and the puppies. The pups soon found rescue with the Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley where they received needed vetting. RCP asked us to sponsor Suzy’s initial vetting (vaccines, deworming, and parasite screening). She will be spayed soon and up for adoption.
Luxie was an owner surrender that needed a spay and dental. She was severely malnourished and neglected when Roane County Paws (RCP) pulled her to rescue. She’s an older girl with mammary gland tumors, and the spay was needed to reduce hormone production to shrink them, which will make removal easier later and reduce the risk of becoming ulcerative. RCP thought she may not make it, but she has improved tremendously in foster care. The vet definitely thought with these procedures and more TLC, she will have many years left.
