We invite you to learn more about Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue and our mission to save adoptable dogs and cats from area shelters.
Why do we do what we do?
Every year, thousands of dogs and cats end up at municipal animal shelters here in Western North Carolina. Some are brought in as strays and some are abandoned by the very people they loved and trusted to care for them. Without Charlie’s Angels, nearly all of these innocent animals would be euthanized or left to die alone. We began our rescue mission in Transylvania County but in recent years, we have expanded to also help Henderson, McDowell, and Madison County. Some of the small rural shelters have extremely limited resources for caring for the animals they have and without our help, the lives of so many animals would be lost.
We are a volunteer- based, non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to rescuing these homeless, abandoned, neglected, often abused animals and finding them new forever homes.
Some of the animals we pull from local county shelters are immediately placed in a foster home, but the majority are brought to Safe Haven, our shelter located in Fletcher, NC. That’s the day that these animals get a second chance at a better life. We love them, heal their wounds, get them training if they need it, and in many cases provide life-saving medical treatment. When they are ready, we find the perfect home where they can begin living again. As a non-profit organization we do all of this with only a limited number kennel workers. But what we also have is an amazing cadre of dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers who are the heart-beat of our organization and are the reason why we are able to do what we do – save lives.
What Does CAAR Do?
Every animal rescued by CAAR is seen by a vet, vaccinated, de-wormed, tested for heart worms, treated for any medical conditions (including heart worms), and spayed or neutered. When it is necessary, we provide training to help them be the adoptable animal we know they are deep inside. We love and care for each of the animals until they are adopted….no matter how long that takes. Our shelter is open 7 days a week for anyone interested in adopting. We also hold several adoption events every month. To read about just some of our amazing success stories, read Happy Tails.
If you are interested in adopting any of our rescues, click here for information about the adoption process, and here to view adoptable pets on Pet Finder. If you aren’t able to adopt at this time, we encourage you to consider becoming a Foster. Foster homes play a vital role in keeping animals safe and secure while a rescue or adoption arrangement is made. There are also lots of ways to help out as a volunteer.
