The Charlie Fund is a special emergency medical fund for ill and injured homeless animals at the Oakville & Milton Humane Society. We save animals hit by cars, caught in traps, attacked by predators, or suffering from abuse or neglect. We also care for those with other serious medical conditions, such as surgeries for severe dental problems, removal of growths or masses, eye or ear disorders and even hernias.
This fund is possible because of donations from members of our community. Every dollar received by The Charlie Fund is used exclusively for the animals in our care.
The History of The Charlie Fund
Our special emergency medical fund was initiated in 1985, when a Border Collie named Charlie required amputation of a leg which could not be saved.
Charlie came through the surgery splendidly and following recovery was adopted by a wonderful family where he lived a long, full and happy life. Charlie gave us the idea of setting up a special fund to which people could donate, which would be used solely for the purpose of saving ill and injured animals.
