Meet Charlie and help save a life on Valentine’s Day.

Charlies story

It’s hard to believe that a dog as adorable as Charlie would start his life in a rescue centre. One of several three-month-old pups in an accidental litter, he was surrendered to a local rescue group in inner Melbourne that had only days to find him a home.

It was touch and go for Charlie until he was rescued by the Thomson family. Now here he is three years later, happy, healthy and a much loved member of the family with their three daughters and Ruby, their other rescue dog.

“It’s hard to imagine life without Charlie. He is such a character and gives us all so much joy. His love of food is only out matched by his love of hugs.” says 15 year-old Tish Thomson.

On Saturday 14 February, you can show your support for dogs like Charlie by joining Just For Pets for a national day of fundraising fun to help save the lives of abandoned pets.
