In rural counties where there is no animal control, unfortunately some dogs get shot at. That’s what happened to Carhartt. He had been roaming in a Morgan County neighborhood where he was not wanted, so someone nearly killed him. Thankfully, law enforcement was called and wanted to see him live, so they contacted MoCo Mutts Rescue Center, a subsidiary under Senior Dog Lodge & Animal Rescue. Carhartt was rushed to the Animal ER where shotgun fragments were removed from his tissue. X-rays confirmed none of his organs had been penetrated. We paid $500 of his emergency bill, and now Carhartt is resting and recovering at the rescue center.
Little Ava was part of a litter that contracted parvovirus. MoCo Mutts (aka Senior Dog Lodge & Animal Rescue) offered to take the puppies from the owner and get them into treatment. Ava, the only survivor, was able to receive full treatment, and she is recovering. We paid her medical costs of $240.17. If the mother had been vaccinated and the puppies kept off the ground before having a chance to be vaccinated, this could have been prevented.
Thor was taken in as a stray by Senior Dog Lodge and Animal Rescue. He had an old leg injury that was beyond repair, so amputation was recommended. We sponsored the surgery cost with a $300 donation, and Thor is feeling much better now.
Normally, we don’t feature a sponsored animal twice, but HPAN helped Ruby in more ways than one. Not only did we have the opportunity to sponsor her initial vetting, but one of our directors took her into foster care for the Senior Dog Lodge & Animal Rescue. Ruby was unsociable and frightened. Within a week, her sweet personality was revealed, and she soon became loving and more confident. We sponsored Ruby’s final vetting last week, and two days later she traveled north to live her best life with a wonderful family who fell in love with her on social media. We love you, Ruby!
Ruby has lived 90% of her entire two years in a crate. Her owner has agreed to surrender Ruby to rescue. She will be in foster care, learning how to be a dog and learning to be loved, and then she will be up for local adoption. Her rescue, Senior Dog Lodge & Animal Rescue, asked us to sponsor Ruby’s veterinary exam, parasite testing, and a dose of monthly prevention. Ruby’s future looks bright!
Thistle, Latke, Buttercup, Mistletoe, and Holly were left unattended and starving after their owner passed away. Law enforcement was called in, and they called Senior Dog Lodge & Animal Rescue. There was no room for the dogs at the rescue, so they called Homeward Bound Dog Rescue and the Humane Society of Roane County who stepped up and immediately took them to the vet. All the dogs were given an exam, medicine where needed, vaccines, dewormer, and all have now been spayed/neutered.
Darlin was brought to the Senior Dog Lodge & Animal Rescue after being found roadside. She had lots of road rash and a terribly injured tail to the point that bone was showing. To prevent a spinal infection, the tail had to be amputated. We were able to chip in $300 on the $445 bill.
These precious pups were hit by a car in Morgan County and taken to the Senior Dog Lodge & Animal Rescue. They were rushed to the Animal Emergency and Specialty Center where Dixie was treated for head trauma and Trixie was treated for broken bones in her legs and pelvis. They are lucky to be alive and still have a ways to go, but at least they have a chance at living a good life.
Senior Dog Lodge & Animal Rescue (SDL) took in Sophie, Mya, Oliver, and Olivia after it had been confirmed that they were abandoned in Morgan County. Their owner had the gall to move and leave all of them, plus puppies belonging to one of them. Unsurprisingly, some of the dogs had parasitic disease. We sponsored antibiotics and vaccines for these beautiful animals.
Ross, Roy, and Bullet have lived their entire lives (seven years) in crates with someone who wasn’t able to care for them. Payton’s life wasn’t much better. He was outside, unvaccinated, and had fur matted to his skin. Good for all four, their owners surrendered them to the Senior Dog Lodge & Animal Rescue where they will be cared for. We had the privilege of sponsoring all the dogs’ neuters, vaccines, and heartworm testing for $300.
