HPAN Kicks in $1000 for Scotty’s Leg Repair
The Volunteer State Doberman Rescue pulled Scotty from a shelter when animal control brought him in with a broken front leg. Scotty is around a year old and has a lot of life to live. The rescue got him to the orthopedic specialist at the University of Tennessee Veterinary Medical Center, and surgery was scheduled. Nearly $4,000 later, Scotty is almost as good as new. Look at that smile! So glad we could help a little!
HPAN Helps Miniature Donkey Get Well with $1000
The larger the animal, the larger the vet costs. That’s especially true for farm animals. The East TN Miniature Horse & Donkey Rescue took in Whatchamacallit, and he had a bad case of pneumonia. He is still a hospital patient at the University of Tennessee Veterinary Medical Center where his charges are mounting into the thousands, but he’s getting better! The rescue asked us for a little help. They do so much for mini equines that have been neglected and abused. We are happy to help this little guy find his way back to health.
HPAN Helps East TN Mini Rescue with Surgery Bill
Gumball had a severe dislocated hip before he landed with the East Tennessee Miniature Horse and Donkey Rescue. He was in a lot of pain and needed surgery at the University of Tennessee Veterinary Medical Center. Unfortunately, Gumball did not make it through surgery, but the rescue was left with a huge bill. We voted to sponsor Gumball’s surgery, so we paid one-third of the bill ($1,000) to help ease the rescue’s burden.
HPAN Helps Chloe with $500
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.
HPAN Gives Arthur a Second Chance with a $500 Sponsorship
Arthur was returned to the Campbell County Animal Shelter when he became sick. Shelter staff, thankfully, believed he was worth fixing. A vet visit and diagnostics confirmed that he had a urinary tract blockage, requiring surgery. They asked us to help sponsor his vet charges at the University of Tennessee Veterinary Medical Center. As soon as Arthur recovers, he will be on his way to rescue!
HPAN Helps MAARC with $300
Annie was found as a stray and had been attacked by a couple dogs. She was picked up by a Good Samaritan and taken to the Maryville Alcoa Animal Rescue Center (MAARC). A volunteer rushed her to the University of Tennessee Veterinary Medical Center where Annie had emergency surgery. Unfortunately, Annie passed away the next day, but the rescue was left with a bill for over $4,000. We contributed $300 to help them, and we hope animal lovers far and wide will consider helping as well.
