HPAN Sponsors Surrendered Dogs for $249

Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue was contacted by Roane County Animal Shelter when an owner came in to surrender seven dogs!  Helping Paws Animal Network provided funds for all seven dogs in need of basic vetting! Basic vetting typically includes exams, rabies vaccinations, and heartworm tests.  Coco, Chaco, Dominic, Halo, Jacoby, Jeep, and Lincoln deserve a second chance, and we were happy to help them!


HPAN Helps an Angel with $155

Angel was surrendered to the Roane County Animal Shelter by an elderly lady who could no longer care for her. Angel had two very serious seizures and, because of the wonderful Halo’s Second Chance Animal Rescue, Angel got a second chance. She was taken to the vet, where we sponsored her bloodwork and seizure medication. She will be adopted into a loving home, and her condition will be managed, allowing her to live out her life in happiness and wellness.

HPAN Sponsors Lucas with $300

Lucas was taken to the Roane County Animal Shelter with what seemed to be either a broken thigh or dislocated hip. He was sore to the touch, so the shelter had to act quick. They got him to the vet for evaluation. The leg wasn’t broken, but the doctor did detect some nerve damage, which can sometimes happen from blunt force trauma. Rest and anti-inflammatories are the protocol for now, so we went ahead and sponsored his neuter, vaccines, exam, heart worm test, and deworming for $300. Lucas is currently in foster care.

HPAN Sponsors Three Lucky Shelter Dogs for $445

Elly from Young-Williams Animal Center, Panda from Anderson County Animal Shelter, and Frances from Roane County Animal Shelter, all with different medical needs, found their way into safety with Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue. We helped with Elly’s mange treatment, Panda’s initial vetting, and Frances’ leg surgery. All of these babies will be adopted into loving homes when they are fully healed.

HPAN Tries Helping Kenny with $300

Kenny was surrendered to the Roane County Animal Shelter. He had a prolapsed rectum and needed surgery to survive any longer. He was taken to the vet immediately under the Humane Society of Roane County. So many people and groups tried to help Kenny, but unfortunately, the surgery wasn’t successful and Kenny didn’t make it. We contributed $300 to the fee in order to give him a fighting chance.

HPAN Sponsors Miracle’s Medical Needs for $224

Little Miracle was eaten up with mange when the Roane County Animal Shelter contacted Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue for help. She was immediately taken to the vet and treatment began. Treating mange is a long process, but Miracle is fighting alongside her medicine. We paid her $224 bill.

HPAN Sponsors Tests/Vaccines for $500

The Roane County Animal Shelter reached out to us asking for help on purchasing vaccines and combo tests for their animals. They have very little money in their annual vaccine fund and explained that rescue groups are requiring cats be tested for viruses before they are rescued. We gladly helped them with this worthy investment.

HPAN Helps Halos with $300 for Bongo’s care

Bongo was hit by a car and taken to the Roane County Animal Shelter. He had internal injuries and broken bones, yet he survived and is healing after surgery. We were honored to play a role in Bongo’s survival.

HPAN Helps Monty Get Well with $89

Monty is a senior dog pulled from the Roane County Animal Shelter by Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue. He had a severe infection that had his right eye matted shut, as well as a yeast infection on his skin. We paid for his veterinary exam, antibiotic ointment for his eye, oral antibiotics for his skin, as well as his rabies vaccine, and heartworm test. Monty will now know the good life!

HPAN Sponsors 50 Vaccines for Local Shelter

The Roane County Animal Shelter currently does not have enough money in their budget to cover vaccines needed for the number of animals coming in. They specifically need canine 5 in 1 vaccines and asked for our help. We sent $260 for the purchase of 50 vaccines.
