About the Book:

While Caitlyn’s story is still being written, this book captures the most difficult part of her life — her journey from abuse to recovery. Found with her muzzle taped shut with electrical tape, Caitlyn nearly died. But thanks to a community who cared, Charleston Animal Society, local veterinarians, detectives and prosecutors — Caitlyn’s story became an inspiring story of triumph over adversity. This beautiful animal put a face on animal cruelty and in the process, she inspired people around the world.

A book purchase will support future Caitlyns get the help they need through the Caitlyn Anti-Cruelty fund at Charleston Animal Society.

The luncheon is at High Cotton, 199 East Bay Street in downtown Charleston. Doors open at 11:30 a.m.and the three-course luncheon will begin promptly at noon.
