Dear Valued Friend,
Sadly, there comes a time when we must bid farewell to the four-legged friends we love so much. We reflect on the joy they brought to our lives and feel thankful that we had the opportunity to know them.Â Â It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of our beloved Dachshund,
Charlotte joined the Animal Leagueâ€™s Sponsor Program in 2006. Originally,
Charlotte was abandoned at a local shelter that did not practice a no-kill philosophy. She was a senior dog with an array of health problems, and the Animal League feared that she would have been put down.
Charlotte’s fate drastically changed when the Animal League rescued her. A thorough examination by Animal League veterinarians found that
Charlotte had a congenital heart defect, hyperthyroidism, dermatitis, dental issues, chronic urinary tract infections and gastrointestinal disturbances. Animal League cardiologists repaired her heart with coil surgery and her hyperthyroidism was controlled with medication twice a day.
Charlotteâ€™s valiant struggle and earnest victory over her conditions earned her the title, Queen of the Sponsor Program. Queen Charlotte ruled with grace and dignity and was an inspiration to all who knew her.Â Â
Survived by her foster mother and countless Sponsors,
Charlotte will be dearly missed. We hope you find comfort in knowing that your generous sponsorship of
Charlotte enabled her to enjoy a wonderful quality of life and to live out her latter years in comfort. She was surrounded by those who adored her, and her life was a long and happy one. It has been our pleasure to care for her.
Queen Charlotte will always rule over our hearts.
The Sponsor Team
