Mr. Jingles was abandoned as a kitten at a trailer park where nobody claimed him. He was wearing a collar that he outgrew, and it embedded into his neck. When Spay it Forward Tennessee heard about it, they trapped him and took him into their program. He saw three different vets before one was about to help him. Surgically removing his collar was a gruesome procedure that is requiring wound management for several weeks, but thankfully Mr. Jingles is going to make it. We were able to sponsor a portion of his vet bill.
Ladybird was among a litter of puppies surrendered to Spay it Forward East TN by a young couple who could not care for them. Ten days after their first vaccines, the puppies came down with Parvovirus. All pups were put in the hospital, but Ladybird was the only survivor after four days of intensive care. The rescue asked us to help with her bill.
Spay It Forward East TN took in a dog and her litter when the owner contacted them and asked for help. The mama dog hadn’t been properly vaccinated, so the puppies broke with the dreaded parvovirus. The rescue was left with a staggering vet bill, including critical care costing in the hundreds, yet the puppies didn’t make it. We kicked in $300 on the bill, so the rescue wouldn’t be stifled. All of this could have been avoided with a simple annual vaccine on the former owner’s part.
Norma Jean was found as a stray on a rural back road. When her owner couldn’t be located, Spay it Forward East TN took her in. She had a mouthful of rotten teeth and terrible skin. We paid for necessary teeth extraction and vaccines. She already feels so much better and is ready for adoption.

Opossum came to Spay it Forward East TN as a stray and in terrible shape. Considering how he looked at the beginning, he looks really good in this photo! His life was touch and go for months, yet he kept defying the odds. After many weeks of TLC, he was ready for the ear removal and teeth extraction he needed to improve his quality of life. We contributed $300 to the vet bill.
