2014 - A Year of Accomplishments

Rescue, Rescue, Rescue  It Was A Very Good Year!

A lot of hard work by volunteers goes into rescuing animals, and a myriad of things needs to come together to make it happen. “The Stars Must Align”, as they say.

Fortunately they did this year for Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue (CAAR). Let’s take a moment and review all the good “stuff “ that happened to make 2014 a successful year.

The most important accomplishment of all, over 730 lives were saved, a 47% increase over 2013. It was indeed a good year for the animals.

  • We started the year out strong with new, professionally prepared marketing materials including a full colored tri-fold  and “giving” brochure along with Facebook, Foster and Volunteer hand out cards. 
  • Donations continued to come from awareness; and CAAR embarked upon a dedicated journey to make our Community hear our mission.
  • We attended dozens of Adoption Events and Festivals and to get our word out. We participated in the  famous Hendersonville Apple Festival, White Squirrel Festival of Brevard, NC and even marched in the Asheville Christmas Parade to help spread our story.

Thank you for visiting our web site! 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, hundreds of dogs and cats end up at area animal shelters here in Western North Carolina.  Some are 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 are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to rescuing these homeless, abandoned, neglected, and often abused animals. Some are immediately placed in a foster home, some are brought to Safe Haven, our kennel located in Fletcher, NC. From there, we work with other rescue groups in the northeast who accept many of our local dogs and cats and find loving homes for them. Thanks to this cooperative effort, there are dogs and cats that we rescued who are living in loving homes in Pennsylvania, New York, Georgia, and as far away as Canada. Some have gone on to do amazing things, like a Treeing Walker Hound named Boomer who is now working as a search and rescue dog in Canada.

What does CAAR do?
Every animal rescued by CAAR is seen by a vet, vaccinated, tested for heart worms, treated for any medical conditions, and spayed or neutered. We care for each of the animals until they are either adopted locally or transported to another rescue group.

If you are interested in adopting any of our rescues, click on the Adopt tab above for information about our available pets along with the necessary adoption forms. 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. Click on this link to complete a Volunteer application, or drop us an email for more information.

Every quarter we produce an e-newsletter that is full of all kinds of information and it's FREE! To receive your copy, click here now.

All of this is accomplished with volunteers. There is no paid staff and as a 501(c)3 organization we rely entirely on grants, donations, and adoption fees.

Please consider helping us by volunteering your time and making a donation....or by giving one of rescue animals a loving “furever” home with you.
