HPAN Sponsors more Shelter Cats for $563.30

The Roane County Animal Shelter recently reached capacity, especially on the cat side. The Humane Society of Roane County stepped in to pull as many as they could, knowing we’d be there to help them. We sponsored basic vetting and needed medication for Tank, Steve, Penelope, Asriel, Parker, and Dana. These six get to live because we came together to help.

HPAN Helps Puffin Get Well with $300

Puffin was taken to the Roane County Animal Shelter as part of a cruelty case. He jaw was injured and swollen, and he couldn’t open his mouth. Enter Halos Second Chance Animal Rescue. They took Puffin straight to the vet. He needed four teeth pulled and tumors in his mouth removed. Puffin will recover, thanks to Halos and our sponsorship. 

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.

Monthly heartworm prevention would have been so much easier on Kane and everyone else involved in his care!

We contributed $300 to cover his eye surgery, neuter, medication, and some of his heartworm treatment.

We were honored to sponsor Bugsy’s vet care.

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.
