Here's Charlie

Will you help rescue his friends?

Charlie made a special 2022  Calendar just for you!  Get yours and help Charlie Rescue more of his Friends!

Our amazing volunteers created this calendar. 

They designed it, took the photographs, got support from our wonderful sponsors and produced it.  

Please support them, our sponsors and of course help us
Rescue Charlie’s Friends!

Every dog and puppy pictured in the calendar was rescued by Rescue Charlie’s Friends in 2021. 

Every one was adopted into a loving home with a family that loves them and that they will love forever.  

These were the lucky ones.  Your donation for a calendar will help Charlie rescue even more dogs in 2022.

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.  His dream building is under construction.  The building is nearly done.  We are working to finish the inside with walls, electrical and plumbing. You can help by clicking on the Donation button below!

Meet Charlie's Friends

Hi, my name is Lucy but they have been calling me “Mom Lucy” so people don’t confuse me with Lucy Lou.

We don’t look at all alike, so I don’t know how they can be confused.

Me?  I’m great with people and with other dogs too.  I’m catching on to how to be housebroken. 

I don’t have an owner anymore, because they put him in jail.  I’m not too sad about that because he wasn’t very nice to us anyway.  

I’m really worried about my babies. I want them to be adopted and have a wonderful life.  

I really hope we all get adopted by families that will love us and we can love forever!

My mom said I’m a Greek Harehound / Shepherd mix.  Well, she said, a Greek Harehound is a rare breed that only comes in tan and black, so if you wanted a different color, it’s not happening.

Me?  I’m just a very calm and lovable boy.  I’m good with people and other dogs and I’m very sweet.  Everybody says so.  I’m housebroken too.  Perfect dog, right?

Solo

Hi.  They call me Solo, but actually I like to have a buddy to hang our with and I’m good with other dogs so it’s not a problem.  

I’m very sweet too and I love to be with people.

Ziana

Ziana is a female Hound mix.  She weighs fifty five pounds.

We would like everyone to meet Ziana. She isn’t even two years old and already she has been through lifetimes of struggles.

We first learned of Ziana when she was posted by a shelter in Alabama, pleading for a rescue to save her.

Known in Alabama as Helen she was often brought in by Animal Control because her owners just let her roam around aimlessly. Although not ideal for any dog this is especially sad and scary for Ziana because she not only is completely DEAF but also partially blind. She roamed the streets not knowing where she was, how to get home, or how to stay safe and warm.

After multiple trips to the shelter and back home to wander off again, the owners finally surrendered her. But the shelter was a scary and cold place and all she did was shake and cry.

We have now taken Ziana into our rescue and given her her new name Ziana, which means Brave and Bold. It is deserving after what she has been through.

She will be making her journey to Maine to live her life with a long term Foster who can help her mend from years of neglect.

She has pretty severe skin issues. She will be spayed and brought up to date on her vaccines. Ziana will get some much needed wormer, prevention and ongoing care so she will FINALLY feel safe, secure and LOVED.

If any one can help us by donating to Ziana’s care, now and ongoing as she starts her new chapter of life we would greatly appreciate it. If you cannot donate please share her story.

I’m a very sweet little dog, I’m only about twenty five pounds.  I’m really good with people and I’m housebroken too.  I can be a little bit excitable sometimes and they worry I might accidently knock a little toddler down, but I would never do that on purpose.

They call me Buster.  I don’t know why, I guess because  that’s my name.  I wonder why they didn’t let me pick my own name.  Or maybe just a cool nickname like “Montana” or “Rocky”.

Anyway, I’ve had this name for seven years already so I guess I might as well keep it.  Unless of course you want to change it.  That would be OK.  You could adopt me and then we can talk about giving me a new name, OK?  I’ll be thinking of some possibilities.  How about… Well, let’s just wait until we can talk about it, OK?

Everybody has been very nice to me.  They told me that when I get to Maine I’m going to be adopted.  I really hope they are telling me the truth.  Do you know if it’s really true?

Hi, I’m Goldie Hawn.  I’m very friendly.  Would you like to play with this?  It’s my favorite toy but I will let you play with it, OK?

If you want to adopt us, we would love that.  That’s my best buddy Kate Hudson over there.  She is friendly too.  I bet she will even let you play with her red toy.  She loves that thing!

Will you please adopt us?  We will be good, we promise!

Hi, I’m Mildred.  I know this is a lousy picture of me but it’s the only one I have. I asked them to take another one, but so far – nothing.

How can I expect to be adopted when this is the only picture I have?

All I can do is hope someone adopts me anyway.

Bama

I’m very sweet and good with other dogs too.  I can be a little shy with people at first, but  I warm up quickly.

They only took one picture of me and I don’t know why.  Other dogs got two, three or more.

So is it because I am so handsome they think one is enough?  Or is it because they think I am so ugly that there is no hope of getting me adopted?    

That thought really scares me.  I mean it REALLY scares me.

So you are the judge and jury.  Am I ugly or cute? Will I be adopted or left to grow old in a shelter somewhere sleeping on a concrete floor?  I guess it’s up to you.

Honey

Honey is a female  two year old Terrier mix.

Honey

They call me Honey.  No, my fur is not sticky, they call me Honey because of my terrific  personality.

Here is what my Foster says about me:

WHAT A NICE PUP! Gets along with everyone. Lets me know when she needs to go out.

Has figured out the dog door at least partially. When I put her out she comes in on her own but cries when she needs to go out. Hasn’t barked. Hasn’t caused any trouble. When I first got home and I was taking her out of the truck, I had the leash in hand while I was getting my phone and she slipped out of the collar. People put collars on way too loose. Anyway, she followed Maggie around so I tried not to panic and just walked over and put the collar back on her. She is not an excitable girl, he’s pretty quiet and laid back.

This is going to make somebody a great puppy. I was playing with her and trying to get her to react and I pulled on her ears and pulled on her face and pulled on her paws and pushed her around and rolled her on her back and she just wagged her tail and played like it was a game. Initial assessment of this dog is that this puppy will make a great addition to someone’s family. No little five-year-old male menace need apply!!!!

JK

JK is a two year old female Terrier mix.  She is in Maine now and ready for adoption!

Rescue Charlie's Friends Adopt a dog in Maine
JK

JK was living in the woods in Alabama fending for herself and taking care of two five month-old pups and an eight week old pup.

Despite obvious abuse and abandonment, JK loves all people.

She has excellent house manners. JK prefers smaller dogs and does not like strange dogs in her face. If dogs listen to her, there are no issues.

JK has been fostered with six dogs varying size from 18 to 118 pounds and ages from two years to fourteen years.

JK being a terrier, it would be best if there are no small animals in the house.

JK wants to be with you constantly and needs someone who is home most of the time. JK is very adept at slipping thru doors to stay with you. JK needs a terrier experienced home who will be vigilant to keep her safe until she settles in.

She has a typical stubborn terrier personality but is highly trainable. She is NOT hypoallergic and does shed.

These gorgeous babies are mine!  I’m very proud of them.  Aren’t they about the best looking little puppies you ever saw? 

Just so you know, even if I do have to say so myself, I am very sweet, a little shy and submissive and I’m good with people and even with other dogs.  I’ve never been around cats, so I don’t know how that would go.

I am two years old and I’m a Shepherd mix.

Thank you again for all of your hard work!

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, bu
