They operate a high quality, aggressive, statewide mobile spay/neuter service, targeting areas with high animal population and low spay/neuter resources. They also offer a low-cost vaccine clinic on the first Saturday of the month. All dogs/cats that wish to take advantage of their low-cost services must be spayed/neutered to attend. Every dog that leaves their care is spayed/neutered, including 8-week old pups. They believe that allowing a pup to leave their care not spayed/neutered would perpetuate the problem, they work so hard to overcome every day. Non-official mission: To go out of business because our services are no longer needed. They often hear a chuckle or wishful thinking comment when they say this, and they say this often, but if they don’t believe they could end the problem of overpopulation, they have no business asking anyone to believe in them… much less to give us even one of their hard-earned dollars.

Animal Rescue of the Week: Episode 65 – Charlie's Wish Animal Rescue
Charlie's Wish Animal Rescue was established to honor Laura's first pit bull, Charlie, who was badly abused by his owner. He was later dumped by the person and tied outside without food and water.

Charlie died 3 years after Laura had him for his old injury. She established the rescue next year to honor him and to remind herself that there are many other dogs that are just like him and need our help. They usually take dogs that other rescues don't want. Their medical expenses can't be covered by adoption fees and donations. She constantly pays the bills out of her own pocket. But seeing them being transformed into happy and healthy dogs and have a loving family is priceless. Because of the financial burden, she has to keep this rescue very small. Her mission is keeping dogs "out of harm's way, one dog at a time." She can't save all dogs but the dogs in her hands will receive good care. That's what she does.

They started out as strictly a TNR organization. When they received a 3K private donation they asked the donor if they could use that to help low-income households get their cats fixed. They started offering lower cost spays and neuters for low-income families. In 2016, a PetSmart opened in neighboring city Albertville. The manager, David Van Sleet, contacted them about being an adoption partner and so their kitten rescue program was born. In late 2019, Dr. Brown, a local veterinarian, gave them the opportunity to lease out his old vet office and now they are in the process of opening a kitten rescue shelter.
