About us

Why do we do what we do?

Our Organization

Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that was founded in early 2009 with the purpose of rescuing animals from the Transylvania County animal shelter which was, at the time, a high-kill shelter. In 2008, records show that 71% of the animals brought to the Transylvania County animal shelter were euthanized. By the end of 2009, 80% percent of the animals were being saved thanks in large part to the efforts of Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue.

The organization continued to grow and in 2012 Charlie’s Angels expanded its scope of services and opened Safe Haven, a no-kill shelter in nearby Fletcher, NC. We also expanded our service area in order to help rescue homeless, abandoned, and often neglected animals from shelters in Henderson, McDowell, and Madison Counties.

Today, we are one of the leading animal rescue groups in western North Carolina and we are enormously proud of the work we do. In 2017, we rescued upwards of 800 dogs and cats. Some were owner surrenders, most were from the shelters we partner with. In several cases, we were called in to help with horrific hoarding situations.

In addition to the work we do with our area county shelters, we are constantly creating new ways to save more animals. One of our most successful partnerships has been with the Aloft hotel in Asheville which has resulted in 100 dog adoptions in the past 3 years.  We also began a program in cooperation with the Swannanoa Correctional Center for Women in Black Mountain, NC.  Here, the New Leash on Life program pairs two dogs from Charlie’s Angels with inmates who help socialize the dogs while teaching them basic obedience skills. We have also partnered with a number of local, animal-related businesses who help showcase foster dogs in their stores.

We do all of this without any government funding. We are 100% reliant on donations. What we do have is a handful of talented and dedicated kennel attendants and a cadre of devoted volunteers and supporters full of dogged determination to make the world a better place for the animals we rescue.

We invite you to come see us at Safe Haven and learn more about the life-saving work we do.
