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.

Biscuit was brought to the Roane County Animal Shelter and was adopted within the hour. As her new owners were taking her out of the building, Biscuit got away from them and ran straight for the highway and got hit by a car. She sustained a broken leg and some head injuries.

Biscuit’s adoption was redacted, and she was pulled into rescue that day by Homeward Bound Dog Rescue.
Snow Bell was either mauled or caught in a trap; her back leg was mangled and severely injured before she was taken to the Roane County Animal Shelter. Shelter staff called on The Stray Connection, who immediately stepped up and had Snow Bell rushed to the vet. Unfortunately, her leg had to be amputated, but she’s already doing so much better. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise because she also had a raging infection in her uterus that is being treated. It may have ultimately killed her. We paid $300 on her bill. Snow Bell will be available for adoption through The Stray Connection as soon as she has fully recovered.
