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.  We already have the land.  We have most of the funds needed for a building.  We hope to raise the rest soon so we can make his dream come true.  You can help with a donation to his GoFundMe account.

Meet Charlie's Friends

So I hear that my sister Shania thinks she is daddy’s favorite daughter.  Just let her think that.  I know that I’m really the favorite but just let Shania think she is.  It doesn’t do any harm and it makes her feel better.  It’s great for her self image and self confidence.

Meanwhile, why not adopt me?  My head is in reality, not fantasy.

Can we go for another walk?  I love to be outside.  You know I spent so much of my life in a crate that I never really got to explore much.

Wouldn’t it be fun to walk in the woods?  We could see all the pretty flowers and smell all the wonderful smells.  I really love that.

Hi, I’m Reba.

I’m really much better looking than these pictures show.

I’m just about the sweetest dog you will ever see.  I won’t eat your shoes or dig through the trash.  I’m way past that.  I’m housebroken too.  I really love everybody.  I even get along great with other dogs.  

Will you adopt me?  Can we go for rides?  Can we go for walks?  Is it OK if I just lay next to your feet when you are on the couch?  I’ll be really quiet.   

I want to be the best friend you ever had, OK?  Please just adopt me.,

Will you adopt me?

Bo

Hi, my name is Bo.  My dad is DC.  My dad, my sisters and I were in a Hoarder’s house and it was awful.  We are very glad to be out of there.

I have a little problem – when they tested me I found out I am Heartworm Positive.  They are treating me for it but I have to be completely clear before I can come to Maine.  That means I probably won’t be coming until June or maybe July.

When I come to Maine I hope to be adopted.  Will you adopt me?

Roo

Will you adopt me?

Roo

Well Hello!  I’m Roo.  I am oh so very sweet and gentle and well behaved. 

I’m good with everything – kids, dogs and I love everyone.  I don’t know anything about cats – I’ve never been around them.  Are they fun to chase?  Oops.  I didn’t mean to say that.  I might be good with cats.  We just won’t know until we try.

Will you adopt me?

Shelley

Shelley is a female Labrador mix.  She is one year old and weighs forty pounds.  Shelley is very shy.  She has been abused and tends to cower with new people.  She needs kindness, love and a little patience to build trust with new people.

Hello – my name is Shelley.  Is it OK if I talk with you?  I haven’t had a very good life so far, so I just want to find out if you are a kind person or – well I don’t want anyone to hurt me.

If you will adopt me that would be wonderful.  I will show you how much a dog can love you.  I will be your very best friend forever and ever.  Please adopt me.

I won’t be coming to Maine this time.  I’ll be coming later.

I’ll get right to it.  I really, really want to get adopted.  I’ve already seen what can happen to dogs that are just abandoned or left to find food on their own.  I don’t want that to happen to me!

So will you adopt me?  Do I pass the cuteness test?  You bet I do.  All the guys here say I am beautiful.  Ok, they didn’t say “beautiful”, they said “cute”.  They are right.

There.  I said it.  I’m cute and I want you to adopt me.  OK?

Xan

Xan is a male Husky mix.  He is eleven weeks old.

Rescue Charlies Friends Dog Rescue Maine
Xan

They only have one measly picture of me.  How am I supposed to get adopted with just one picture?  Am I so good looking that you only need one?

I doubt that.  I think they just ran out of time when they finally got to me.  I mean, they take the pictures in alphabetical order and with a name like mine, I am at the very end of the line.  

Will you adopt me anyway?  We could change my name to Aaron, OK?  I would rather be first than last. 

Except for going to the vet to be neutered.  Maybe Xan isn’t such a bad name after all.  I’ll just keep my name, OK?.  

Lovable

Lovable is a female Shepherd / Border Collie mix.  She is five months old.  Playful is her brother.  Lovable will do best in a home that doesn’t have other dogs  because she wants all the attention to herself.  She is very sweet and cuddly.  She would love to lay on the couch with you and play fetch outside with you.

HI.  My sister and I are probably the cutest puppies you ever did see.  Right?  Well anyway, I’m cute. 

I would look even cuter if I was on your lap.

I don’t know if anyone told you and I don’t want to make a big deal about it like I’m trying to make you feel sorry for us.

Anyway, we were simply abandoned.  That’s right, someone just dumped us off and left us.  I just thought you would like to know.

They just don’t listen.  I asked them to come back for pictures AFTER my nap.  But nope, they just went ahead and took my picture while I was sleeping.  I could have been awake, alert, looking at the camera and smiling for everyone to see.  It would have helped me get adopted!

Isn’t that what we all want?

Hello, my name is Olaf.  Until the nice people came and rescued  me, my life was awful.  They took me away from there and they have been so nice to me.  They never hit me and they just held me and kept telling me everything would be OK.  It was the first time anyone was kind to me.

They said I will be going to Maine and get adopted.  They said that means that I will become part of a family that I can love and that will love me.  I hope they are telling me the truth.

I am looking right at you.  I’m trying to see in your eyes whether you will be kind to me or mean.  I just want to love you.  Will you love me?

Heart

I am all heart!  Maybe that’s why Heart is my name.  I am very submissive and I’ll even crawl over to you, just so you will accept me and love me.

I’m very sweet and I love every person I have ever met.  

Can you see the rings around my eyes?  

I see they labeled me as “House breaking started”.  That’s a little insulting.  Maybe if they let me out when I asked there wouldn’t be any problems.

They said I’m going to Maine, wherever that is, in April, whenever that is.  The thing is, whenever I get to wherever I’m going, I’m going to be adopted!! 

Now that is wonderful!  I can hardly wait!

If you will just adopt me, I will learn really quick and I will do my best to please you.  Really.  I mean it.

My name is Shadow. I was abandoned and on my own for a while.  Some nice people took me to a shelter and they called Rescue Charlie’s Friends.  They said I could go to Maine and get adopted.  I really hope it is true.  I’ve been disappointed before and I don’t want to get my hopes up.

I had a family once but they went away and just left me behind.  I am really sweet with kids and even with other dogs.  I don’t know why they left me.  I didn’t do anything wrong.  I sorta nibbled on a remote control once – OK I ate it,  but I was really little then.

What?  Of course I’m housebroken.  I’m embarrassed that you even had to ask.

Hello. Garcie here.

Mom said I’m a Beagle mix and I’m two years old.  She already told you?  Oh.  Well did she tell you that I’m very sweet and playful?  Did she tell you that I’m great with kids and other dogs? She did? Oh.

Well then I guess I don’t have much more to tell you.  Just one thing – I really want to be adopted!  What?  She told you that too?

OK, but will you please adopt me?

I couldn’t help but overhear what those other girls were saying about which one of them is their dad’s favorite daughter.  Who cares? They are just spoiled.  They don’t know how tough life can be.

Look, I’m not into drama.  I’m just a sweet, lovable little dog.   I was a stray in a trailer park and those marks on my face are from cigarette burns, so I never worried about anything so stupid as ‘who was dad’s favorite’.  I never even met my dad.

Now I have been rescued!  They told me  I’m going to Maine where I will get adopted.  When I heard that I just burst into tears.  Happy tears.

Are you the one who will adopt me?  You will never see a dog more grateful than me.  I will cuddle with you every day for so long as I live.  I promise.

Hi, May name is Angel.  I’m the one on the left.  I’m very sweet but I’m also very shy.  I came from a home where things didn’t go so well.  The man had way too many dogs and wasn’t able to take care of us, especially after he passed away!

I will make a wonderful, loving friend for you.  Would you like that?

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.

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. ❤️
