Charlie's Success Stories for 2018

2018 was Rescue Charlie’s Friends first year rescueing dogs.  Looking back on that year, we have to say that we have come a long way!

I’m Charlie and I can’t thank you enough for helping me rescue my friends!

We are incredibly grateful to all of you! 

Scroll down to see some of my friends.  These are the lucky ones that have been rescued, brought to Maine and adopted into loving homes.  It took a lot of work and dedication from the many volunteers who made it happen.   These are happy dogs.  

I’m sure they join me in thanking everyone involved including all the volunteers, sponsors and our many generous donors.

Here are some of the dogs that Charlie has rescued.

All of them have been adopted into loving homes!

These are Happy Dogs!

Here's Teddy

Teddy was chained in the yard so long that his collar had grown into his neck and had to be surgically removed.  He is very happy that the collar is gone. His neck has completely recovered.  

He loves his new family and they love him too.  Who wouldn’t?

I'm Borris

I was adopted and I was so  happy.  Then one day, they brought me back to Rescue Charlie’s Friends Rescue and left me there.  I don’t know why.  I didn’t do anything wrong.  It  broke my heart.  I really loved the whole family and they loved me too.  At least I thought so.

Borris has been adopted!  (Yes, again).  He is a VERY  happy dog now living with his new forever family.  Congratulations Borris!

Beagle / Labrador Mixes

These amazing Beagle / Labrador mix puppies are nine weeks old.  Four Girls and Two Boys.

Grace was not up for adoption

Mystery Puppy

Boy? Girl? well, probably…

We thought we had it solved…

It turns out that Grace had seven puppies. for a while, we had no pictures and we didn’t even know if it was a boy or girl.

The Seventh Puppy

So finally, they told it is is a BOY.  

But when Mystery Puppy got here, yes, you guessed it.  SHE was a GIRL!! (Note to people in North Carolina – Take a closer look next time)

Mystery Solved! (again)

Billy Jo, Billy Bob and Billy Jean

We are from the south and … You already knew?  How did you know?  Anyway, we have been adopted and we love our new families!

What people are saying

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.
