Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue

Local Mountain Area Profile

Our Mission

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.

Our Vision

“All homeless, neglected and abandoned dogs and cats in Western North Carolina are placed in safe and loving homes.”

Adoption Steps

  • OUR ADOPTION “MEET AND GREETS” ARE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT, SEND AN EMAIL TO INFO@CHARLIESANGELSANIMALRESCUE.COM OR CALL 828-885-3647 TO LEAVE A MESSAGE. SOMEONE WILL CONTACT YOU. You can see our adoptable animals on our website through PetFinder . Some of our animals on are in foster care. If you see an animal you are interested in meeting, call our phone line at 828-885-3647 and leave a message. Or drop us an email at Someone will contact you to schedule a Meet and Greet. A Meet and Greet is required before submitting an adoption application. We also hold regular events where you can meet some of our dogs in person so check our schedule for one near you! Come for a meet and greet. If you have existing pets, bring them with you to meet your potential adoptee. You must meet the animal you’re interested in adopting before we can consider your application. This is an important step in the process. It enables you (and us) to determine if the animal is a good fit for you, your family, and your lifestyle, and to answer any questions you may have.

  • Complete the adoption application.

  • At Charlie’s Angels, we believe it is our duty and our responsibility to make sure that every animal in our care is adopted into a safe, loving environment and given every chance for a long, happy life in a forever home. We consider every application seriously to make sure it is the best fit for the animal and the potential adopter. Once your application has been reviewed, a member of our home visit team contacts you about scheduling a home visit. The home visit is for the benefit of the animal and the adopter. After all, our goal is always a successful adoption! During the visit we discuss feeding, training, the best way to introduce your new pet to the family, vaccination schedules (especially with puppies and kittens) and address any safety or welfare concerns. If you have existing pets, we will also contact your vet to verify that your animals are up to date on vaccinations, on heart worm/flea prevention, spayed or neutered, and in good health. If you rent your home we will also contact your landlord to verify that they accept animals and ask if there are any restrictions, such as a weight limit.

  • When your application is approved, come to our shelter, sign the adoption contract, pay the adoption fee, and pick up the newest member of your family!

  • To any individual under the age of 21 years
