Ringo was taken to Young-Williams Animal Center with an injury that left him presumably paralyzed. The staff contacted the Tennessee Valley Golden Retriever Rescue who agreed to take Ringo into their program and get him some medical help. The University of Tennessee Veterinary Medical Center evaluated Ringo and started therapy. Ringo is learning to walk again! We chipped in $500 on his vet bill.
Chloe was surrendered to rescue when her owner couldn’t afford her medical needs (an ectopic ureter). The Tennessee Valley Golden Retriever Rescue felt that Chloe deserved a chance, so they took her in and got her the medical care she needed to thrive. We paid $500 toward her surgery bill at the University of Tennessee Veterinary Medical Center.
These bonded girls could no longer be cared for by their elderly owners and were surrendered to the Tennessee Valley Golden Retriever Rescue. They had been lacking in basic vet care and had skin issues that had to be dealt with. We were able to contribute $250 for each of the girls to help them get on a path of wellness and prepared for their new home.
When the Tennessee Valley Golden Retriever Rescue picked up Sweety, she had ticks crawling all over her and a visible lump on her stomach. The vet discovered she had a massive infection in her uterus requiring surgery. We kicked in funds to help the rescue with this cost.
Moses was weaving in and out of traffic when a Good Samaritan picked him up to save his life. None of the nearby residents had ever seen him before and considered him a dumped dog. He was taken to a local vet’s office and held for a few days in hopes that someone was looking for him. With no collar, no microchip, and nobody looking, the Tennessee Valley Golden Retriever Rescue stepped up to take responsibility of this dog. We offered to cover his vaccines, deworming, neuter, and boarding cost. He already has an interested adopter.
The Tennessee Valley Golden Retriever Rescue (TVGRR) reached out to us asking for help treating Hunter’s heartworms. He is currently in foster care and will begin treatments very soon. On to a better life, sweetheart!
