Ellie and Bradley were living along in a house full of animal waste. They were being fed and watered, but no other care whatsoever. Thankfully, they were surrendered to Spay it Forward East TN and were promptly taken to the vet. Because they’d not had any vet care in years, many services, including bloodwork, were needed. We were able to sponsor these services. Ellie now has a potential home, but a special home is needed for Bradley, who is blind and deaf.
Mozzy’s owner didn’t have time for him, so Spay It Forward East TN took him into their program. He came with horrible abscessed teeth that had spread to his sinuses, and he had bladder stones causing urinary blockage. We sponsored Mozzy’s vet needs with $500.
Pumpkin’s owner wasn’t well enough to care for him, so he was surrendered to Spay It Forward East TN. Upon his vet check, they discovered that Pumpkin needed dental surgery to improve his quality of life. We kicked in $500 toward the nearly $800 fee. Pumpkin is on the road to recover and already feeling much better!
Spay it Forward East TN got a call from someone saying that Mr. Wiggles and Delilah were left as orphans when their mom passed away. The rescue group took them to the vet for a neuter, dental, vaccines, etc. They are much better now and will be adopted into a new home. We were happy to cover their vet bill.
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.
Brooks was surrendered by his owner to Spay it Forward East TN. He was in desperate need of having his teeth extracted due to infection. He’s a much happier boy, and we were glad to give him his spunk back by sponsoring his surgery.
Petunia was hit by a car and surrendered with a broken leg. Spay It Forward East TN requested assistance with her leg amputation. HPAN funded $300 towards this beautiful girl’s surgery!
