It was a sunny and beautiful day on Saturday, Dec. 14, 2013, with a great turn out to the Charlotte’s Way Rescue. Cher Heath of Charlotte’s Way Rescue held a successful fundraiser on Dec. 14 at Catalina Rawhide Hay and Feed Store! Cher was able to adopt out four animals to good homes and was able to earn enough money for her non-profit kennel license.
There were various raffles provided by Tea Life basket, a certificate for a one hour massage by Healing Pathways Massage, a certificate for a Tarot Card reading, ZORT (Zombie Outbreak Response Team-Arizona Sector) shirts, Candle Basket and other items. Camp Bow Wow was on hand to answer questions and help with the fundraiser. Homemade dog treats were also on hand with part of the proceeds going to Charlottes Way Rescue.
There are still many animals available for adoption. Cher has approximately 65 dogs and 42 cats. Upon adoption of the animals from Charlotte’s Way Rescue the animals are spayed/neutered, fecal tested, up to date on shots and they are even taught manners. Many of the animals are house trained with Ceasar Millan dog training. Cher is dedicated to reducing euthanasia of adoptable pets. She helps bring a quality of life to all abandoned, abused and neglected animals that are in the tri-community area. It is a serious commitment when choosing to adopt an animal but well worth it.
Charlotte’s Way Rescue is always looking for good volunteers for walking dogs, cleaning of crates and kennels, washing animals, playing with the animals and help with the adoption clinics. They also need donations of items such as clean old towels, rugs, collars, water bottles, fencing or other items that may be helpful. Donations are accepted at the Oracle Fire Department who graciously do what they can to help out Charlotte’s Way Rescue. Janice of the San Manuel Historical Society provides a donation every month and it is greatly appreciated. Hot Dogs and Cool Cats of Oracle are no longer affiliated with Charlotte’s Way Rescue in any way.
