The Charlie Fund
The Charlie Fund provides emergency and specialized veterinary care for animals at the Oakville & Milton Humane Society (OMHS). The Charlie Fund saves animals hit by cars, caught in traps, or needing life-changing treatments and surgeries.
History of The Charlie Fund
The Charlie Fund began in 1985 when a Border Collie came into OMHS, with a leg too badly damaged to save. A fundraising campaign was needed to raise money for the necessary surgery. “Charlie” recovered and was adopted by a wonderful family and he lived a long and happy life.
The need for “emergency medical funds” lived on and a fundraising campaign was started. Over the past 32 years, this special fund has grown from saving a few animals a year to more than 100 annually.
How is the Charlie Fund funded?
Your gift makes it possible to provide the emergency and specialized treatment of the neediest animals at OMHS. Every dollar makes a difference.
Your gift to the Charlie Fund is the gift of life, the gift of time to heal and the gift of hope for a home.
