Charlie – RIP Sweet Girl — Shot With a BB

charlie w:rachel gerstner 3:16:173/21/17 – RIP Sweet Charlie. I wish we could save every animal we are called about but sometimes the best we can do is to humanely end their suffering. A huge thank you to Rachel Gerstner, who is always so willing, no matter what time of day, to respond to an animal in need. ~ diana
“Hi Diana,
We got a call about Charlie, who had been being fed outside but was very sweet & friendly. Unfortunately there were some very bad people who had shot her with a bb gun. A neighbor noticed the wound & took her into a vet to have the wound shaved & cleaned. Unfortunately a few months later the wound was still bleeding & showing signs of infection, the hair had not grown back & she was extremely emaciated, having been fending for herself outside for so long. The neighborhood she was in also had coyotes, so a concerned friend decided to contact us for help. We immediately contacted 4 paws 1 heart & Diana said yes, of course they would help, with no hesitation!! We got Charlie into the vet the next day, where it was determined that she had FIV, inflamed & enlarged intestines, almost no teeth left, was extremely emaciated & even though she looked like a kitten, was quite old. The vet said her prognosis was not good & it was decided between us all that humane euthanasia was the best option for her. We’re very sad that we couldn’t save Charlie, but we’re glad that she’s not out there suffering & fending for herself in the cold anymore. RIP Charlie… You will never be forgotten & we’re glad you were able to experience love & warmth & a full belly on your last day & night with us. We all love you! Thank you so much 4 paws 1 heart & Diana for always helping these innocent animals who need us!! You are very loved too!!! ~ Rachel”
