Charlie did what we hope our own dog would do in the same situation. She defended her family when an intruder entered their home. Charlie and two of her canine siblings ran after the intruder and then the intruder fired four shots at the dogs as he ran off. Two of the bullets hit Charlie, one in her front right leg and the other her back right leg. Her owner told us "If Charlie had not taken the bullet, it would have hit one of my children." Because her family does not have the resources to pay for an expensive surgery and they were caught up in the moment of chaos, they felt they had no option other than to tearfully let the police officer take Charlie to the shelter, hoping she would get the care she needs. They desperately want Charlie, who has been a part of their lives since shee was a puppy, back and we want to help make that happen. The North Central Shelter Intervention Program is set up to keep pets with the families who love them. If we can raise the money for Charlie's surgery, she can be reunited with the family she loves so much that she risked her life to save them. Her front right leg has a compound fracture low on the humerus that requires a complicated surgery or possible amputation. Her back right leg has a deep laceration that needs treatment. Please help us raise the funds to help this loyal and heroic dog get the care she needs. And reunite her with her family! She misses them very, very much Every little bit helps.
