Charlotte's Story

Charlotte was found lying in the doorway of a church, way out on a country road....who knows how far she had dragged her broken, weary little body to get there? Members of the congregation gave her food and water, but nobody would take her in.

Little Charlotte watched as, one by one, they all drove away, until she was left alone again...and darkness began to fall.

When Laura arrived that night, Charlotte was still lying in the doorway of that church, lonely, frightened, in pain...but waiting still for salvation, hoping for sanctuary.She knew she had no room for her, as her home is already refuge to many rescues. She had no money for the kind of care she needs.

But this little puppy had faith, so Laura did too....faith that you will help her, faith that she will make a full recovery and leave pain and fear far behind her. She is only a baby, about 3 months old..

7/26/11: Charlotte is doing better but still remains in quarantine. She has almost no immune system so she has to be kept away from other animals. She is gaining a little weight and likes her time with humans. She is super cuddly and sweet.

You'd never guess she is battling anemia, mange, malnutrition and juvenile celulitis, a rare but very serious condition which basically restricts the airway until the animal chokes. The vet is having to treat Charlotte very carefully as the treatments for mange and celulitis are contraindicated. Please continue to share her story and give as you can. And know that we appreciate your kindness and Charlotte does too.

It isn't much, but we gave $10 for her care- wish it could have been more -

from Braxton (a rescued ShihTzu) and Lulu (a rescued Tibetan Spaniel) and Sushi - the fish..(not exactly "rescued" ..but not in those itty-bitty pet-store bowls anymore)...
