Remember Charlie?? This was the initial request for help we received from good Samaritan, Leah on July 26, 2013:
“Dear Diana and Gina,
I’m writing to you because I’ve taken in a stray dog who is in need of urgent help. I found him in my northwest Detroit neighborhood hanging out by an abandoned school. He was whimpering and clearly in rough shape, with swollen front legs and and part of his mouth hanging limp, so I brought him in to my vet. She speculated that he was likely a bait dog in a dog fighting ring. She also said that she believed that while his injuries were serious and would require surgery, he could be treated. Of course, given all he has been through, his psychological wounds would need a lot of attention as well. One of the vet techs told me about your organization, and I wanted to see if you would consider taking this very sweet boy on. I am currently keeping him in my back yard, feeding him and giving him the antibiotics and pain med prescribed by the vet.” ~ Leah
With the help of 4 Paws 1 Heart and generous donations made through an on-line fundraiser conducted by Leah and with the help of TailWaggers, Charlie was treated.
