HPAN Helps Jack with $89

Jack was brought to the Roane County Animal Shelter dangling his front leg. It was believed to be from an old injury from possibly being hit or run over by a car. Upon having x-rays, the vet suggested removal of the leg for the best quality of life. Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue took a chance on Jack and agreed to pull him into their program and have him all fixed up. We sponsored his leg amputation, and now he’s a happy little tripod and no longer in pain.

HPAN Pays $280 for Kane of Halo’s

Kane found himself at the Roane County Animal Shelter, dejected and neglected. He also tested positive for heartworms. Shelter staff reached out to Halo’s Second Chance Animal Rescue who gladly took him into their program. We had the honor of sponsoring his heartworm treatments and neuter for $280. Monthly heartworm prevention would have been so much easier on Kane and everyone else involved in his care!

HPAN Pays $300 of Marley’s Vet Bill

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.

HPAN Helps Bugsy with $175

Bugsy was pulled from Roane County Animal Shelter by Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue. The vet noticed he was dragging his back legs. He was found to have a herniated disk in his back. He remained at the vet and had laser therapy and physical therapy as well as his vaccinations. He did regain some use of his back legs, but does use a wheelchair to get around. We were honored to sponsor Bugsy’s vet care.

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.
