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!

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!
