Harper was surrendered to the Anderson County Animal Shelter. She was covered in flees, had a bad skin infection, needed to be spayed, and had a bum leg from a former surgery gone wrong. Slumdog Rescue Crew pulled this tiny darling into their program and got her straight to the vet, who said her back leg was causing her more trouble than it was worth and that an amputation would be needed. They asked us to help with the cost of surgery, which was nearly $1,600. We were at least able to pitch in $300. Payments can be called into Powell Animal Hospital, 865-938-7008.
Suki was rescued by Slumdog Rescue Crew. She had a huge mammary tumor that the rescue had removed. Surgical margins were clean, but presurgical blood work revealed that Suki also had heartworms. The rescue asked us to sponsor the treatments, so Suki can live. We were happy to pay $300 on the bill!
Chloe is an 8 year old, heartworm-positive female given up by her owners because she kept digging out of their fenced yard. Slumdog Rescue Crew agreed to take her in, get her the treatment she needs to be well, and find her a home where she will be set up for success and loved forever. We sponsored $300 of her treatment fee.
Phoebe came to Slumdog Rescue Crew from Cleveland Animal Control and was surrendered with five other dogs. She is 9 years old, has heartworms, can’t do stairs (arthritis), and doesn’t look like she’s lived the best life. We are doing our part to ensure she has a better life by sponsoring her heartworm treatments.
Maya was a stray on a shelter euthanasia list. She had a bleeding tumor, kennel cough, was covered with fleas/ticks, malnourished, and was a senior to boot. She was flat out of options. A foster and Slumdog Rescue Crew (SRC) stepped up to save Maya. She made it out by the skin of her teeth, was taken to the vet, had that nasty tumor removed, and was put on antibiotics for kennel cough. She’s lavished in comfort and love while she heals. Before long she will receive the rest of her vet services and will be able to retire in peace with an adoptive family. HPAN paid $300 for Maya’s surgery and medicine.
We sponsored Piper’s puppies a few weeks ago, and now it’s her turn to be taken care of so she has no more puppies! We contributed $200 toward the cost of her spay surgery. Slumdog Rescue Crew also took in a new litter of puppies last week, and they asked us to sponsor their initial vaccines and dewormer for $150.
Slumdog Rescue Crew was notified of an 11-week old puppy that was thought to be dying at Cleveland Animal Control last Friday. A volunteer was able to get him to Keith Street Animal Clinic where he has been ever since. Walker is battling Parvo and, although he is holding his own, it is a lot for a poor puppy’s little body. He is still receiving IV fluids and continuous care, and his bill is quickly escalating. We paid $300 on the bill.
Slumdog Rescue Crew asked us to sponsor second-round vaccines and exams for one of their rescue dogs, Piper, and her litter of puppies. Soon all of them will be ready for adoption!
Leo had been neglected and discarded at the animal shelter. His story touched the hearts of rescue individuals, and he ended up under the care of Slumdog Rescue Crew (SRC). He had a horrible case of Demodex mange, secondary yeast infection, was heartworm positive; the list goes on and on. When the vet finally gave SRC the okay to treat his heartworms, they reached out to us for help. Leo is on his way to a better life!
Lizzie is a 1.5 year old, terrier mix who was surrendered to Slumdog Rescue Crew (SRC) by her owner. When they arrived to pick up Lizzie, she was running around the property, unvaccinated and blood/infection oozing from open wounds. Her owner told them at the time that Lizzie did not have an eye. Once they were able to get Lizzie bathed, an infectious scab fell off the front of her eyelid exposing her damaged eye. Lizzie had not received treatment for this eye, nor her Demodex mange. She was riddled with fleas and ticks, and she had not been spayed and certainly not vaccinated. Lizzie had sat in this condition waiting on someone to help for a total of eight months. Lizzie has now been with SRC since the end of March. She has tested negative for Demodex mites. Her skin and hair have made a miraculous recovery.
Now, it is time for Lizzie to have her eye removal surgery and spay, which we were asked to sponsor. We were happy to help this wonderful dog, who is reported to love everyone she meets-cats, kids, and dogs included. SRC says that by meeting her, you would never know she has suffered an ounce of abuse. SRC looks forward to finding this special girl a fabulous home.
