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.  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!

Cheezit

Hi, I’m Cheezit.  I don’t know why they don’t want me anymore.  I didn’t do anything wrong, unless you count the remote control I ate, but that was a long time ago.  Or maybe it’s because I don’t like cats.  I, for sure, should not be in a home with cats. 

I’m OK with some dogs but not others.  I’m a little selective about who my friends are.  Maybe it would be better if I was with a family that doesn’t have any other dogs.  

Did I mention cats?  Can’t stand the little critters.  

Anyway, they left me here at the shelter and it looks like they aren’t coming back.  So I’ve been pretty sad about that but they tell me that Charlie will help me find a new family to love.  This time I hope they love me too.

I love people and I will love you.  If you adopt me I will be the best friend you ever had.  I will love you forever and ever.

So how about it – will you adopt me?

I’m Mom Krimson.  Listen, we have had a rough time.  I was chained up out back for so long my collar grew into my neck.  It hurt really bad but we got lucky and we were rescued.  A veterinarian surgically removed my collar and it is starting to heal.

My puppies didn’t have it so easy either.  Here they are.  Don’t they look like the best puppies you have ever seen?  I think they are wonderful!

I worry about them all the time.  I want them to be adopted into a family of their own where they can experience the love I never got.  Will you adopt one?

And then will you adopt me?  I’m good with other dogs, cats, chickens and I’m very smart.  I really want to love you for ever.  I have a lot of love to give.

Now I ask you, how am I going to get adopted with pictures like this?  All the other dogs get to have pictures that show them off.  Me?  Not so much.  I don’t mean to whine about it but I know that getting adopted is a competition and having lousy pictures puts me at a disadvantage.

Anyway, enough complaining.  I will make the best of it and I bet I get adopted anyway.  

Why?  Because I am a great dog.

Hi, It’s me again, Tucker.

Do you want a great dog?  Then adopt me.  I love people and kids.  I’m a little selective about which dogs I like and I prefer small dogs over big ones.

I’m already housebroken and I can even do a few commands, like “Sit”

I promise I will love you and you will love me too.  If you want the best friend you ever had, then pick me.  OK?

People get us mixed up all the time because our names are so close.  Just one letter different.  It should be easy to tell us apart.  I’m the good looking one.

Did they tell you about us?  We went out for what we thought was a ride in the car.  We love that!   Then they stopped the car and put us at the side of the road in a cardboard box.  Then they just drove off and left us there.  I was yelling as loud as I could “Hey, come back!” but they just kept going.

Of course I’m a guy and I couldn’t let on to my sister Bibi that I was scared so I told her not to worry, it was no big deal and everything will be OK.  But truth was, I was so scared I wet myself.  Then some people came and saved us.  

So that’s how we got here.  Will you adopt Bibi?  How about Bubba?  Well then, will you adopt me?  Please?

Hello, I’m Rusty.

I love to run around and play and then when I’m done with that, I want to lay next to you on the couch.  Does that sound OK?

Oh, I’m good with other dogs too.

“Sweetest dog ever!”  That’s what they say about me.  It’s true too.  I love people and kids and other dogs.  I even like cats.  I have no aggression and I’m just calm.

Want a dog like that?  Adopt me!

I’m a hyper dog with lots of energy.  I’m good with other dogs and kids, but I’m too active for toddlers because I might accidently knock them down.

Will you go for walks with me?  Will you throw a ball for me?  I would love that.

Would you like the best friend you ever had?  Well, that would be me.   Please adopt me, OK?

They call me Shine.  That makes sense when you think of it, because that’s my name.

I am very sweet and playful.  I’m good with everyone and even with other dogs.

I hope someone will adopt me.  Will you?

Wow!  It’s really happening.  They are bringing me to Maine and I’m going to be adopted!

Here is what happened to us.  Molly, Oakley, Akira and I had a great life.  We lived on a farm with a wonderful man who loved us and took good care of us.  We were all very sad when he died.

His family doesn’t want us so instead of going to a shelter, we got rescued by some wonderful people. They called our friend Charlie who will make sure we get adopted.  We never met Charlie but we are sure grateful for his help.

What about me? I know basic commands and I walk well on a leash.  My favorite things are cuddling on the couch and food.  I really like treats.

Of course I am housebroken.  I get along great with kids, other dogs and animals.  I was bred to herd sheep.  Do you have any?  No matter, I will love being with you.

Will you adopt me?

Akira

I get along great with kids, other dogs and animals. 

I’m so good!  I’m really laid back and easy going.  I love playing fetch.  I’m housebroken too.   I walk on a leash or harness with no problems.

I can even do a tippy-toe dance for you.

My favorite thing is laying on the couch with you.  Can we do that?

Will you adopt me?  I’ll be really, really good and I’ll be the best friend you ever had.

Have you already heard about us?  Molly, Felix, Akira and I had a great life.  We lived on a farm with a wonderful man who loved us and took good care of us.  We were all very sad when he died.

His family doesn’t want us so instead of going to a shelter, we got rescued by some wonderful people. They called our friend Charlie who will make sure we get adopted.  We never met Charlie but we are sure grateful for his help.

My name is Oakley and I’m a really good dog.

I’m great with kids, dogs and animals.  They say I’m a Gentle Giant because I act like I’m the size of a Chihuahua.

Housebroken?  I’ll tap on the doorknob when I need to go outside.  Just pay attention to me and I’ll let you know every time. I can walk on a lead or a harness. 

My favorite things are toys that squeak and treats.  Especially treats.  Plus I love it when you pet me.

Will you adopt me? I can see you and I think we will be great together.

HI, I’m Griffin.

Shall I tell you a little about myself?  I am one big sweet and gentle boy.  I’m very chill. (I heard someone say that I’m “very chill”.  I’m not certain what it means, but I think it’s a good thing.) 

I’m good with kids and other dogs and yes, I’m housebroken.

I’m coming to Maine soon and they said that I will get adopted.  Will it be you?  I sure hope so.

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.

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.
