Charlie is a super sweet little guy that only weighs 13 pounds. He's a tan Chihuahua Terrier mix. This little guy has the most awesome personality to match. Arron Vannoy, Animal Control Shelter Director says "Charlie was seized from his previous owners because of animal cruelty. Charlie had his collar and chain embedded into his neck. But now, after many extensive days at a local vet this little bundle of love is ready for a home full of love and owners that will take good care of him."

I tried to play with Charlie only he just wanted to sit in my lap. Maybe because of his recent injury he may have not wanted to move around a whole lot or simply, Charlie is grateful for his second chance at life without pain and/or abuse. If you think you have what it takes to adopt a formerly abused pet, go check on Charlie the Chihuahua mix in cell E-3. He's got a few days to go before he is scheduled to be put down.

Tell anyone within earshot range and help spread the word about all the KEAN-Critters up for adoption. Tell anyone that will listen and/or appreciate a story about a pet that wants love. KEAN-Critters really need to find homes right away. Please help.
