Rhett was found hiding under someone's storage barn in the northwest part of Shelby county. He is an older boy that has been badly neglected. He was missing a lot of hair and what hair he did have was horribly matted and stinky! He is now clean and mat free and his vet bills have exceeded $700.


Rhett says to tell you he is so grateful for your donation via ChipIn to his care! He is feeling so much better and is looking good! He went to the vet today for a checkup. He still has a little fungal infection in his skin (due to long term neglect) but otherwise has impressed the vet with his dramatic improvement since we got him in October. See the before/after pictures below.

Holly came into rescue right before Christmas. She is about 6 to 7 years old and came from a shelter in middle Tennessee. She was overweight, stinky, matted, had a tight/almost embedded collar on her, had nails so long they curled under, had a mammary tumor, was limping, and had missing areas of hair. The nails, mats, smell, and tight collar were quickly taken care of. The missing areas of hair turned out to be from a secondary skin infection. A round of medication and medicated baths for a couple of weeks got that taken care of. When she was spayed and had the mammary mass removed, we did some x-rays and found that she has arthritis in her front legs and some in her spine. We got great news back from the lab - the mass was benign! Then we took Holly for 6 sessions of laser therapy for the arthritis. That helped, along with Glucosamine and medication. It also has helped that she has lost 6 pounds! We are discussing her case with a well-known surgeon about possible minimally invasive (arthroscopic) surgery to help with the arthritis. Stay tuned for further information on that. We have spent over $1,200 on this special girl. She is one of the sweetest Shelties you will ever meet. She loves to play ball, Frisbee, and play with toys!!! Everyone who meets her loves her!
