Here's Charlie

Will you help rescue his friends?

Meet Charlie

Hi, I’m Charlie.

This dog rescue organization is named after me.

My sister and I were in cages, sleeping on a cold concrete floor and getting lousy food.  It was crowded and they had to make room because more dogs were coming. 

If we hadn’t been rescued, things would not have ended well for us.

Some of my friends are in the same terrible situation and they need help.

Will you help me save my friends?

Let’s make sure they get a new life in a warm and loving home.

Save a life.  Adopt one of my friends.

Lets go! 

Can you please hurry? 

My friends are waiting!

Is it OK if I drive?

Friday, May 1st: Charlie is at the Hospital fighting for his life. He was fine, happy and playing last night.  This morning  he collapsed and was unable to stand or walk.  We rushed him to the veterinarian who found that he was bleeding internally due to tumors on his spleen.  Surgery is not recommended because the cancer has likely already spread.  He is at the hospital now and they are trying to stabilize his blood pressure and get the bleeding to stop.  If successful, we will bring him home later tonight and he will be on Yunnan Baiyao for the rest of his days.  This is not a cure but it may give him a few more weeks or months of life.  The veterinarian does not believe that he is in pain.  We are sorry to say if his vitals won’t stabilize we will have to say good bye to Charlie. Please wish him well!
Friday night update 8:30 PM Charlie came out of the hospital walking on his own with his tail wagging.  We got him home and he went downhill a bit and had to be carried to his bed. He is in his bed now and we will have to wait and see how he is in the morning.
Friday night update 11:30 PM Our beloved Charlie died quietly in his bed moments ago.  He was comforted by the ones he loved during his last moments.  We will always love him.

Charlie’s Dream 
Charlie was an inspiration for all of us, humans and dogs. He saved hundreds of dogs and maybe some humans too in his years working with Rescue Charlie’s Friends. He saw all the dogs passing through and we think he knew he was doing something wonderful.

Rescue Charlie’s Friends will live on in his memory and continue to rescue dogs. Charlie’s dream was to have his own building where he could receive the transports indoors out of the weather and operate not just as a dog rescue but as a dog shelter. We will do all we can to make his dream come true.  You can help with a donation to his GoFundMe account.

Meet Charlie's Friends

Kat

Kat is a Catahoula / Labrador mix.  She is a female and is one to two years old and weighs 25 pounds.  Kat is in Maine now and is ready to meet her new family.  Will it be yours?

My name is Kat.  I was just a stray dog.  I was following people around, just hoping someone would give me a break.  Some people took me to a shelter. It was better there but I was so lonely and I just wanted a family I could love.

  The people there could tell I had a rough start in life but they didn’t know the whole truth. If they could understand dog I would have told them all about my life so far and most of it  was not pretty.

I look older than I really am but a loving home and a good diet will quickly restore my youthful appearance.

I get along with everyone and with all the other dogs.  I have been staying with a wonderful Foster here in Maine and now I’m ready to be adopted.  I really want to be a part of a family I can love for ever and ever.  Will it be yours?  Will you adopt me?  Please?

What people are saying

I adopted a puppy from Rescue Charlie’s Friends on June 2, 2018 named August. My thirteen year old dog had passed away the month before.

I renamed him. Bud Lite. Bud because he is my Buddy and Lite because he is the Lite of my life.

I am some what of a hermit, but Buddy gets me out walking everyday. We have met many wonderful people and other dogs on our walks.

He means everything to me.

PLEASE keep up the good work you are doing both for the dogs and the families that are fortunate enough to adopt them.

From Foster to Adopter

I have always been a dog person.
For as long as I can remember I have had a special bond with these four legged loves.
When my karma died I thought that my heart would rip in two. To me, and many other pet owners, a dog is very much a part of your family, another child. There is nothing like the love that a dog has for their humans.
For many years I have wanted another dog, but as we all know it’s a lot of work and I’ve got enough going on in my life, Ha! 

Fostering has been wonderful, it helps teach my kids responsibility, it shows them the importance of volunteer work and helping other beings, we get to have puppies around, and we got to save all of these beautiful dogs who otherwise wouldn’t have it so great.

I would highly recommend it for anyone out there who is a dog lover. It’s hard, yes, because you do fall in love, but it also gives life so much meaning, and it’s such an amazing feeling to see these dogs go to a new special home after coming from not so great circumstances.

This dog right here came into our life by chance. We are going away and the rescue just needed help with her for the weekend so they asked us. From the moment she got into our car, something was different. There was an immediate bond with my oldest and when we took her home it quickly extended to everyone. It just felt like she was coming home. We were absolutely not thinking about getting another dog right now, but just like Hazel, we absolutely could not let her go. She just fit. Even Hazel is realizing that she has a new body. This poor sweet dog had a rough beginning, but we’re here to make sure that the rest of her life is a grand one! I am so thankful that this sweet soul chose us. ❤️
