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 has come true thanks to some very generous donations.

Meet Charlie's Friends

Charlie with help from our wonderful volunteers, sponsors and donors is rescuing lots of his friends. Even more this year than last year. Wow!

Wilma

Hi, I’m Wilma.  Want to know about us?  I’ll let our foster tell you.  Here is what she says:

Attention all dog lovers!
Meet Sassy and Wilma. Two southern Belle’s looking for their forever home. They are a bonded pair and need to go together. They are both house trained, though they need some time to get into a routine.
Sassy is a Rottweiler mix with a stern bark coupled with a wagging tail. She wants nothing more than for you to throw her a toy and likes to climb up next to you on the couch and lick your face if you’ll let her. Sassy has no idea how big she is and may do better in a home without small children as she could easily steamroll over a small child without even realizing she has done it.
Wilma is the sweetest little Pittie Mix. While Sassy wants to sit next to you, Wilma wants to sit on you. She is crazy for squeaky toys and likes wrestling with Sassy. Wilma has some hip issues for which she takes pain meds.
Both Sassy and Wilma seem to have indulged a little in the good life and need some gym time and Weight Watchers in their life. They go on three walks every day and have made it an entire mile! Although they claim human food is what they need, we are keeping them away from anything that will add to their – shall we say “fluffiness”.
They are both dog and people friendly and may have been spotted at the last LL Bean concert of the year enjoying the beautiful Maine weather. They like car rides and adventures – as long as they don’t involve a lot of exercise. They are trained on the leash and walk well together and with my dog. They do pull sometimes, especially when one has to pee and the other one – or two – want to keep going or they see a cat. Probably not good in a home with cats.
A fenced yard is not a must but would be very appreciated by both girls. Sassy – and sometimes Wilma – bark at the neighbors and we are teaching them that not every noise is a potential threat. Though I think most of the time she is inviting them over to play.
Anybody who adopts these two wonderful girls will be incredibly lucky and loved.

The French Crew

The French Crew are eight week old Labrador mixes.  Three girls and two boys.

Monte Blanc - I'm a boy

Well, you probably think I’m going to spill the beans about our family and our little arguments and troubles.  Well, I’m not.  

Rescue Charlie's Friends Dog Rescue in Maine
Chamonix - I'm a boy

Have you seen my sister Notre Dame?  She thinks she is a shrink and I should tell her all my troubles and she will make them better.  Well don’t be fooled.

I was scared to death of the loud thunder the other night. I told her I was just trembling with fear each time there was a big crack of thunder.

Did she talk about it with me?  Did she tell me that it is just a normal noise and won’t hurt me?  Did she say that it is OK and I shouldn’t be afraid?

Nope.  What did she do?  She told all the other dogs within earshot that I am a big fraidy-cat and I’m  scared of a little thunder.  All the other puppies just laughed at me.  Now they all call me a woosy-wimp.  My life is ruined.

Please, please get that girl out of here!

Am I looking sad enough?  If I try to look a little sadder will it make you want to adopt me and save me?  Look at my eyes.  Don’t they make you want to hold me on your lap and scratch a little behind my ears?

Well I wish you would do that. I really want to just lay on your lap and feel that I finally have a place where I belong.

Mausolus - I'm a boy

They were thinking about the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus when they named me, but that is such a long name that the shortened it to Mausolus.

Actually,  Mausolus was the Ruler of Caria and didn’t have anything to do with the Seven Wonders of the World, but I’m glad to have his name anyway.

Rhodes - I'm a boy

The reason they gave us great names is simple.  We are GREAT puppies!

Well, except maybe Mausolus.  He is named after an emperor and sometimes takes it too seriously.  Sometimes he thinks he rules us.  No way!

GET ME OUT OF HERE!

I didn’t do anything wrong!  Why did they lock me up in here?  I want an attorney!  I want to get out of here!  I just want to be adopted and be with you.  I love everyone!  Well, almost everyone.  The person who locked me up in here, not so much.

I am learning all about being housebroken but I’m not perfect yet.  I’ve almost got it.  Just give me another chance, OK?

So I chased a cat.  So what?  Is that why I’m locked up?  OK, OK, I’ll try really hard not to chase cats.  Maybe it’s better if when I get adopted there aren’t any cats living in the same house with me.

Will you please please please adopt me and get me OUT OF HERE!

Howdy, I’m the only man here.  The girls giggle and say they don’t want to talk on camera.  Really?  That’s all they do is talk talk talk talk talk.

Actually, they always want to be the center of attention so I don’t understand why when here, they have the perfect chance to talk to you and hope that you will  fall in love and adopt them, they clam up and pretend they can’t talk on camera.  Girls.  I just don’t understand them.  My dad told me I’ll be happier if I don’t try.

By the way, my name is Charles.

I love people and kids.  I’m pretty shy at first but I really do love everyone.  I like other dogs too.  I haven’t been around cats so I don’t know how that might work out but I’m willing to try it.

I hear Charles over there talking about us girls.  He is ignoring what happened to us, maybe because he gets all emotional talking about it.  

We were dumped by our owner.  Some nice people found us hiding in the storage shed of a church.  I guess we got lucky because now we are going to be adopted!

Hello, I’m Dianna. I hope you watch our videos.  I think I might be the best looking one of all of us.  What do you think?

I’m the perfect dog, I don’t know why they dumped me.  It broke my heart.  I guess what Charlie would have said is true – dumping me was their loss.

He is good with kids, cats, and walking on leash in a pack. He loves to chew on bones, chase balls, and play with squeaky toys.

Hansel is housebroken, crate trained, and is learning to come for a treat. He needs someone who can be patient and continue building his confidence.”

What people are saying

Everyone at Rescue Charlie’s Friends, we can’t thank you enough for all that you do with your amazing rescue! Our new addition Clara (aka Azure) is loving her new life here in Lincolnville and her new friend Trigger is in love.

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, 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.

adoption pending?

It means that someone has already reserved this dog.

Don’t let that stop you, fill out an application anyway and be in “backup” position.  If the person changes their mind or backs out, we will contact the person next in line for that dog.

Just fill out an Adoption Application.
After you are approved you can place a $100 deposit (refundable) to reserve your dog!
