Thanks to the immense efforts of Dr. Scott Andersen and his team at Waugh Chapel Animal Hospital, Charlie, an older gray cat, was able to overcome the horrific — and apparently intentional — burns that covered much of his body when he was found in a closet. His months-long struggle to recover was closely followed by his many supporters, and we rejoiced when Charlie was adopter shortly before Christmas 2016. Charlie spent his final year as a beloved and pampered pet before passing away from bone cancer. One human caused Charlie so much suffering, but countless humans rallied to show him kindness, love and charity.
