Animals Needing Assistance – CHIP IN
Ichabod was returned to our facilities because his adopter did not want to deal with his medical condition. He was 11 years old when he was returned. Originally, it was thought to be a simple urinary tract infection, but as it turned out, that was the tip of the iceburg. Ichabod needed $850 to cover his veterinarian expenses. He is now stable and living in foster care until a permanent home can be found. Allow us this gift to Ichabod – to give him a comfy bed, love, and home-like attention that can only be achieved by the personal, intimate agenda we provide to the animals who come in to our care.
Taffy was returned because the adopter thought she might be crazy. Taffy was suffering from a neurological disorder; and now, with a little salve in her ears twice a day, she is much more controllable. Taffy’s weird behaviors were caused by the fear and anxiety she experienced when she would have an episode. Taffy needed a $350 sponsor to cover her veterinarian expenses. She is coming along well in foster care. Our team just built some individual cat rooms in the foster care home so that each cats’ special needs can be met effectively. All labor and most of the supplies for the rooms were donated, so we only spent $250 to build the entire structure.
Bessie was returned because she was peeing in the house. She had never done this before, so a vet visit indicated that she had a urinary tract infection. She is well and now waiting for her home. She needs a $78 sponsorship.
Lucky, who came to TPC when he was 7 years old as a special needs cat, has required long term care in our program. Recently, he has went in to kidney failure. His foster parents are giving him daily fluids and monitoring his food well. Lucky will pass away soon and it’s because of people in our network that have allowed us to give him a GREAT life anyway. Lucky needed a $250 sponsorship.
Tests and Preventative Care
Jodie needed a rabies shot for $12. Felicity and Samantha needed health examinations at $40 each. Journey, Sasha, Cheerio, Pepper, Jodie, Amulett, Levi, Duchess and all other dogs in the program needed heartworm tests and prevention at a cost of $250.
