Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

This area is very poor. In addition to strays, owners of pets often cannot afford medical care for their animals, dog houses, and vaccinations. To save strays and to prevent pets being let loose or relinquished to the local Valley River Humane Society Shelter, Lost dogs Run has two programs: the first is to find foster homes and provide medical assistance and vetting for strays and then to place them in good homes; the second is to provide medical assistance for pets in medical emergencies in which owners cannot afford to use competent (board certified if necessary) vets, i.e., orthopedic surgery to save broken limbs, cataract surgery, etc. andtoalsosupplu basic needs such as dog houses with cedar chips for pets living outside on chains and to also provide vaccinations, deworming and heartworm prevention for those pets. We are limited by our financial resources to help but do the best we can.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to improve the welfare of animals, both strays and pets belonging to the local population.

The general public calls us to alertus to the needs of animals such as strays and medical emergencies. Ron Stoessell and CIndy Mulkey offer advice and respond to the extent that our resources allow. We are not a large organization and often the best response when someone reports a stray is to offer medical assistance to vet a stray or injured dog if the person will agree to provide a home for the animal. We have limited foster space for 15 animals and as they are adopted or die (hospice cases) we take in more animals.

We receive about $10,000 a year through donations and adoption fees that are used for medical assistance which is often the limiting factor. We are trying to increase the donations through publicity to the public on Face Book and appeals for help for costly medical emergencies such as cataract surgeries at the University of Tennessee Veterinary School in Knoxville and complex surgeries by Dr. Lee Ann Blackford, a board certified surgeon Blackford Veterinary Surgery Referral in Knoxville and Dr. Stephen Arbitter at the Rabun Animal Hospital in Mountain City, Georgia. Fosters for more animals and funds to cover medical assistance are our greatest needs in this area.

We are a small organization with three active members. Each year we rescue and adopt about 10 animals, provide emergency medical assistance to another 10 pets, and provide about 10 dog houses to the public for animals living outside on chains. In this poor area, the need is greatest for medical assistance for owners of pets with injuries due to car accidents. We want to expand that medical assistance to the public.
