Some of you may recognize Charlie from the large photo (pictured in the above gallery) hanging in our office, which was taken by Holly Davis when she fostered Charlie and her siblings, back when Charlie was known to us as Noel. Recently, Charlie’s family got in touch with me via Facebook to let me know how much they appreciate RPM for bringing Charlie into their life.
One month after getting married and one week after moving to Denver Colorado, my new husband and I passed a 4 Paws 4 Life adoption event at Petco and we instantly knew that we’d be leaving with a dog!
Sure enough, within 5 seconds of being at the event I spotted baby Charlie fast asleep in her crate and I knew we’d love her forever. She was so sweet and cuddly, with the most adorable playful side.
About a week after adopting Charlie I was on the Rescued Pets Movement Facebook page and saw that a foster family in Texas had posted a picture of three puppies of all different colors, but one really caught my eye. She had the same black and white fur with little spotted “boots” on her paws and a small white smudge on her nose – just like miss Charlie!
Long story short, we connected with the sweet Texas family and after exchanging many pictures and stories of our sweet girl, we learned some seriously heartbreaking news – at 1.5 weeks old, Charlie and her two siblings were 45 minutes away from euthanasia before they were rescued!
If the sweet foster families in Houston had not stepped up to save these innocent animals, or if RPM was not dedicated to transporting hundreds – now THOUSANDS! – of animals to safe homes, Charlie absolutely would not be here with us today.
I already cannot imagine our life without Charlie. I guess the saying is true… Who rescued who?!
But seriously, you guys do absolutely incredible work. If I could quit my job tomorrow and rescue full-time with you, I would in a heart beat. 🙂
Kristen, Trevor and Charlie
