The Story

A Good Samaritan found this dog, who we've named Charlie, tied up among the trash in a Philadelphia neighborhood, covered in what look like fighting wounds, extremely emaciated and covered in bugs.  

A second Good Samaritan hopped in the car to get him and he hopped right into her car after being cut loose.  He is in pretty bad shape so She took him to Philadelphia Animal Hospital to be treated.  He will need a complete check-up, wound cleaning/drainage etc and it can get costly! 

Please help us save this boy's life so he can have the life he deserves! All funds will go to his medical bills!

UPDATE!
The amount of support for Charlie is just amazing!  Philadelphia Animal Hospital and PSPCA have been in constant contact and decided his best course of care was to keep him at the hospital, instead of moving him to the PSPCA hospital in the middle of treatment.  PSPCA has full access to him whenever needed to aid in their investigation to find whoever did this.  Charlie has been sedated to clean out his maggot-infested wounds and he's been on antibiotics and IV's since his arrival.  He is doing better daily and today Nikki was able to spend time with him outside of his kennel and allowed her to gently pet him all over.  

Philadelphia Animal Hospital want so badly to help Charlie heal, that they are treating him free of charge!  In lieu of donations being sent directly to the hospital to help cover their expenses, they ask for any donations to be sent to City of Elderly Love Rescue, who have graciously taken Charlie under their wing and made him an honorary senior and accepted him into their rescue! 

You can see Philadelphia Animal Hospital's statement about the case & follow Charlie's progress on their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/philadelphiaanimalhospital/ 

We still are in shock that this boy that was thrown out with the trash is now known and loved by the entire community!  His story will be on CBS 3 tonight!

UPDATE! 
Charlie is at PAH and was a good boy during his exam. Besides the obvious wounds and emaciation, the vet stated that his gums are torn to pieces.  Some of the teeth are broken to the bone so he will need extensive dental surgery. 
He will be staying the night with IV's and Pain medicine. He was microchipped so they will be working with the appropriate parties to get justice for him. Hopefully he can get a restful, pain free sleep. 

Thank you all so much for your help!
