I had the most amazing experience adopting from Charlie’s Angels! I was still sad from losing my dog of 17 years, but meeting Puma and seeing how wonderful the staff is at Charlie’s Angels gave me the confidence to find my newest forever friend! Thank you!
Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue
Who are we?
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?
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 life-saving work that we do. We work closely with our shelter partners to help animals in need and are often 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. Through the Aloft program, one animal at a time is chosen to be fostered at the hotel. So far, 150 dogs have found new homes through this innovative program. We also began a program in cooperation with the Swannanoa Correctional Center for Women in Black Mountain, NC called New Leash on Life. The 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.
Charlie’s Angels animal rescue is a western North Carolina non profit organization of volunteers dedicated to saving the lives of adoptable dogs and cats who would die without our intervention.
The organization is a 501(c)3 status so all donations to CAAR are 100% tax deductible.
What People Say
This organization is so loving and have such pure hearts. They are fur-ever friends to their rescued animals. We could not believe how supportive and kind and loving they were to our new Rescue named Tebow and to our family. A little pocket pom. So adorable. What we found amazing is all the support we received during the transition. They were there for us, not just the day we adopted, but still. That’s unusual. I could not believe the care and the attention to detail before the adoption. Our rescue dog had already been neutered, had all his shots, and was even microchipped. Who does that?! Charlie’s Angels Pet Rescue… they care that much.
Charlie’s angels is literally a bunch of angels. They provide love and care for these animals that shows through and through. They are kind, they are fast to help the process along the way and they care more than any rescue I have ever seen. It shows in the animals that are there. I now have the perfect dog for me and my family and I couldn’t be more grateful or happy!
Charlies Angels Animal Rescue is an amazing organization with the most caring, giving people I have ever met. The staff, which is made up of mostly volunteers are selfless in their time, work and love for the animals.
Very nice staff and very sweet animals. I met the two sweetest pups in the entire world here! Not to mention that the cat section was so sweet and the cats were purring and rubbing up against my legs. I got several kisses from each one of them!
This shelter exists only for the benefit of the animals in their care. They react quickly to take whatever action is necessary to ensure the animals are taken care of – even if it means getting rid of an employee after only two days because he is more interested in making inappropriate and unwanted advances to the female workers there.
They are certainly devoted to the animals
Very nice staff and so many animals that need a home.
