CharlotteOf the nearly 500 animals we rescued, cared for, and found forever homes in 2017, one of our most heartwarming memories is of Charlotte. This sweet seven-year-old Bluetick Coonhound mix was clinging to life when we rescued her. Charlotte's eyes were badly injured and diseased. Our medical expenses for Charlotte reached nearly $2,000 in hopes to restore her eyesight, but she remained fully blind.

So just as with our blind dog Paisley whom we rescued last year, we made a special place in our shelter and in our hearts for this incredibly brave canine survivor. And also just as with Paisley, we never believed for one moment that a special needs animal was unadoptable. We simply needed to find a special family who loved Charlotte as much as we did. This past September, Charlotte's new mom arrived with a canine helper companion on her lap, and all three now live happily ever after in a loving home in Franklin.
