Kathryn and Charlie are a mother and son duo who arrived at APE Adoptions from  Texas by way of a rescue that was later shut down by the state on animal neglect charges. 

Charlie is an awesome dog.  Loves his snuggles with his foster mom.  His foster mom takes him for walks twice a day.  He enjoys meeting little dogs on his walks and just wants to play.  He likes large dog friends too, when introduced properly. 

He is learning to go for jogs with his foster mom on her adult Tri-cycle!  We have no idea what breed Charlie is, the breeds indicated are only a guess.

*** Updated Aug 15, 2022 ***

Kathryn’s X-rays have shown she is not pregnant and has only mild heart changes due to the heartworms which she is being treated for.

Charlies rash has healed, he has been neutered, and has had his eye surgery which healed extremely well.

Charlie has been cleared by our shelter vet for adoption.

*** Upon arrival ***

Mama Kathryn is heartworm positive and "in heat", and little Charlie has a horrendous rash. 
Kathryn needs to see a veterinarian for chest X-rays to diagnose the severity of her heartworm disease. She also needs to get an ultrasound to find out if she is pregnant again. 

To make matters worse, poor Charlie was diagnosed with entropion, a condition in which the eyelid rolls inward, causing the eyelashes and surrounding hair to rub against his sensitive cornea. The upper and lower lids are affected in both eyes. Entropion results in eye irritation, and if not remedied quickly, can lead to corneal ulceration.

We are doing everything in our power to help this poor mother and son duo, but we operate solely on donations and are running low on funds. Were relying on our generous supporters to help raise enough money to pay for their critical medical treatment.
