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?

Charlie’s Dream – His own building
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.

Charlie died on May 1st, 2020.  We miss him terribly.

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.

WE ARE SOOO EXCITED!

Hello everybody.  They call me “Junior” and I’m a boy.  I love everybody but I tend to be a little skittish around men.  I actually like women better but I’m good with men once I get to know them a little. 

I still have some puppy energy and I really love to walk and to play.  Want someone to walk with?  I’m your dog!

Have you heard my story?  Well, my name is Junior and I was wondering around hoping to find something to eat.  things just weren’t going too well.

I girl found me and took me home.  It was wonderful.  She saved her money to get my veterinary needs taken care of and she fed me and gave me lots of love.

But then she went away to college and her parents couldn’t keep me, so I came to this shelter.  I was really really scared.  They have been kind to me but it’s just not the same as having a home.

They told Rescue Charlie’s Friends about me and they are bringing me to Maine.  They said that I will get adopted and have a family to love!  I can hardly wait!  I really hope I get adopted.

Even though I’m a little shy around men at first, I love everybody and I’m good with other dogs too.

Will you adopt me?  Please? Look, I’m already potty trained and I don’t eat shoes anymore.  So can we be a family?

Hello, I’m Hank.

I was hanging out around an apartment complex hoping someone would feed me.  Sometimes people would give me something to eat but a lot of days, it just didn’t happen.

I guess some of the people didn’t like me hanging around asking for food, so someone came and shot me.  I thought I was dead.  What happened after that is kind of a fog but I remember waking up and people were taking care of me.

I’m staying with a nice person now in Alabama.  I’m a little afraid of loud noises and I just go into my crate and stay there most of the time.  

They told me that I’m going to Maine to get adopted.  I can hardly wait.  I hope that someone adopts me so I can love them for ever and ever.  I hope they love me too.

Please adopt me.

Have you seen this video?  They brought me in here on a leash to see how I would be with other dogs.  I could have told them that I get along great with other dogs but they didn’t ask.  Then they took the leash off and I walked over and got on a bed so you could see me better.

Duke

Here is waht the staff in Alabama says about Duke

Duke looks just like Marmaduke.
We used Duke to “Dog Test” all the other dogs because he has the perfect temperament. As a matter of fact,
We dog tested him with an aggressive dog and he just rolled with it and didn’t even react.
Duke is EVERYONE’S favorite at the shelter, he is sweet, goofy and laid back. He will make the PERFECT family dog with kids (maybe not really little kids – he might accidentally knock them down).

Duke is just a big, loving puppy and he loves to “Talk” as most hounds do, he’s a hoot.
We found out during the video he’s afraid of toys, so maybe that’s something he needs to work on! Duke has lots of energy, and will do best with an active family.

Hi, I’m Norma Jean.

When I heard that I was I was going to Maine to be adopted, I said “Adopted. What’s that?”

Then they told me it means I will become part of a family.  A real family with people I can love and who will love me back forever.  I was so excited.   I still am and I can hardly wait. 

This is what the people in Alabama say about Norma Jean.

“If someone asked me to pick one dog out of this entire shelter to take home, and commit to for a lifetime it would be this girl right here.”
Norma Jean is “… calm, sweet, patient, and easy going. She is perfection- she’s not hyper or jumping.
She will plug into any family with ease, whether you’re laid back or active. She will be amazing with children of all ages. We tested her with another dog that growled at her, and she simply rolled with it and walked away, lol. She didn’t want ANY trouble.”

Hey I’m here too.  I’m coming to Maine too. Don’t forget me!  There she goes again hogging the spotlight.  My sister can be very annoying.

Hello, I’m Pixie.

I got off to a rough start.  I was chained up in the back yard and nearly starved to death.  Some nice people rescued me from there.  I have been eating and eating and now I have my good looks back.

I am a very sweet lovable girl.  I’m very laid back and easy going but i do have occasional spurts of energy.

I really want to be the only dog in your home because I really love all the attention.  I like other dogs but there are times I just want to be the only dog in your life. But I’m totally fine if we are out walking and see another dog.  I’m not aggressive or reactive.

I’m already crate and potty trained, so you don’t have to worry about that.

I would make a perfect hiking or walking buddy.

Sometimes they call me “Piggy”  I think it’s rude to call me that, but they just laugh and say I make grunting noises and you can even hear them in the video.

Trisha

Loving my new Life.

Rescue Charlies Friends Dog Rescue Maine

I’m Trisha.  Once I was abandoned and in a shelter.  I heard them talking on the phone with Rescue Charlie’s Friends and the next thing I knew, I was on a bus and rode all the way to Maine.

When I got here, some wonderful people adopted me.  I have never been so happy.  I have lots of new friends and as you can see, plenty of places to explore.  I love my new family so very much and you know what?  They love me too!  I can not thank enough the wonderful people who made my new life possible

Loving my new Life.

Hi, I’m Pappa.  I never met Charlie but I was so happy when his organization brought me and lots of his other friends up from Alabama.  I was adopted a few weeks ago and I have never had such a wonderful life.  I get lots of love and attention and I will love my new family for ever and ever.  I feel so lucky to have been rescued.  Charlie rescues all of his friends that he can and we all love him for it.

My only problem is that I like both of these couches and I can’t make up my mind which one to sleep on.

Simon and Garfunkel

Simon and Garfunkel are about one and a half years old.  They were surrendered by their owners to a shelter that would not have been able to keep them long. Rescue Charlie’s Friends was able to rescue them in time.  We don’t know how long they have been living together.  They can be adopted together or separately. 

Simon and Garfunkel did NOT arrive in September as originally scheduled.  Unfortunately they tested positive for heartworm. so they have to stay in Alabama until their treatment is complete and they test negative.  That usually takes two or three months, so we expect they will arrive in Maine in November or December
