Adoptable Pet of the Week

Meet Charlie.

My name is Charlie and I am one lucky dog because I ended up at the HSHS Shelter almost dead. I didn’t have the strength to walk. My gums were as white as my teeth from all the ticks and fleas covering my body, but because of Brandy and her staff, I made it through the next few days, and now I’m at a foster home where I get the best of care.

I’m still weak, but Chris is feeding me wet food every two hours and taking me on very short walks to build up my strength. She has started crate training me, so I will have a safe place to go when I feel threatened. I’ve even met her neighbors. I was scared at first but they were kind to me. I was so excited when her other fur babies accepted me as part of their pack. Chris is a special foster mom who specializes in recovering animals such as me who don’t do well in a shelter. She said she was going to find me a special home where I would never suffer again. If you are that home go to heberspringshumane and fill out an application. Or maybe you would like to become a foster like Chris and Mary B. There’s an application for that too. Or donate to HSHS in my name to help me and others get back on their feet. That reminds me some of our long-term residents: Buck, Pete, and Bear, are now in wonderful homes.
