Let's Pawty for Chalie! The Announcement of the Blogville Summer Picnic

Bloggers, we have a furry special post this afternoon.

Here's Charlies story:

Charlie wasn’t the dog we, Mollie’s Foundation Small Breed Rescue, originally went to pull from a breeder that cold March day but after meeting him he ended up coming with us and we are sure glad he did. At the ripe old age of 2 Charlie was no longer wanted by his breeder. At his first vet visit it was revealed that he was suffering from a UTI, double ear infections, and stage two periodontal disease. We don’t know how long he had been living with these illnesses as he had never seen a vet in his first two years with the breeder. At first he walked hunched over in pain from the UTI and craved human attention. Once we nursed him though his illnesses we sought out a foster home so he could get some “extra love”. Well a very special person contacted us and told us her mom was interested in fostering. Later that week we met with Kay and she became his foster mom. After a few weeks she decided it was time for him to come back to Mollie’s Foundation so he could find his forever home. Then a week later we received a phone call from Kay asking if he had been adopted when I said no she was thrilled. She and her husband

decided that Charlie had to be part of their family. After being adopted Charlie’s rear leg started causing him problems. He became sick and was taken to their vet where he was diagnosed with Legg-Calve-Perthes disease, which is an abnormal deformity of the ball of the hip joint. They opted to have surgery and he made it through without any complications. He is recovering as we blog. The total bill for surgery is $467. Now every dog that enters Mollie’s Foundation is treated just like they are one of my own personal dogs and check on them regularly after adoption, even years later. They are a part of my family as are their new parents. So being part of ourfamily we want to help Kay with this big vet bill because she helped

Charlie by fostering him, giving him the extra attention he needed, and giving him a safe loving home. She gave him the chance when his breeder did not. So let’s help Charlie and Kay! Even if you can only donate $1 that will be a big help in paying off this large vet bill. Thank you
