Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue

From the Charlie’s Angels website, http://www.wncanimalrescue.org/

“Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue began as commitment to rescue animals from the high-kill animal shelter in Transylvania County. In 2008 records show that 71% of the animals brought to the Transylvania County animal shelter were euthanized. By 2009, 80% were being saved thanks in large part to the efforts of the CAAR volunteers.

“What began as a small group of volunteers has evolved into one of the leading animal rescue groups in western North Carolina and now rescues adoptable animals in Transylvania, Henderson, and Buncombe Counties. Since it’s inception in 2009 CAAR has saved nearly 1,100 animals from certain death and has established networks with other rescue groups throughout the eastern US.

“In 2012 CAAR expanded its scope of services and now operates its own kennel aptly called Safe Haven. The organization remains dedicated to rescuing homeless, abandoned, and often neglected animals from area shelters and helping them find their “furever” home through local adoptions or through a network of cooperating rescue groups in other states.”

Charlie’s Angels is an all-volunteer, 501(c)3 charitable organization; donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
