My story

Meet Banjo! Banjo is a 4 year old Plott Hound mix weighing about 65 pounds. He is a beautiful boy with his brindle coat and white chest and markings and he has the most expressive face. Banjo is a sweetheart and a fragile soul that likes to be told he is a good boy and he just wants to please. Banjo loves to be active and is a high energy dog. He enjoys walks, hikes, car rides, and playing. Most of all, Banjo enjoys cuddling with his people on the couch. Banjo struggles with confidence and anxiety issues, but has been working on these things with a trainer and will do wonderfully in the right home while continuing his hard work and with an adopter that is knowledgeable with anxious dogs. Banjo is reactive to new situations and he is learning to come out of his shell and be more engaged in the world and not so selective and nervous around strangers. Banjo is also very food motivated! Banjo is well versed in obedience training and knows sit, crawl, down, stay, bed, speak, and roll over. He is muzzle trained, house trained, crate trained, and walks well on a leash. Banjo will not chew on bones or play with toys and his fosters are working on getting him to learn what toys are. Banjo would be best in a home with a single person or couple. Banjo gets along with other dogs when introduced slowly, he will play with them, and could do well in a home with multiple dogs but needs the proper iand slow introduction with an experinced dog owner. Banjo would prefer a home with no children and likes women more than men. Banjo requires a fenced in yard and an active adopter. If you are interested in adopting Banjo, please go to our website at charliescrusaders.org and fill out our adoption application.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Thank you for your interest in possibly adopting one of our rescues! Charlie's Crusaders Pet Rescue (CCPR) offers two adoption programs, a Foster-to-Adopt and Transport-Foster-to-Adopt Program. Our Foster-to-Adopt Program is for pets that have already been transported and/or living with a foster family in your area. In this case, after your adoption application and home have been approved, we will set up a meet-n-greet with you (your family and any other pets), the pet you are interested in, and it's foster caretaker. If you think the pet would be a great fit, you will be able to foster him/her in your home for a two week trial period before committing to a final adoption. In many cases, mostly due to a lack of available foster homes, our rescues are on a waiting list to get transported to the PA, tri-state area. So, another popular option with many of our adopters—in order to secure the pet they are interested in—is our Transport-Foster-To-Adopt Program. If the pet you want is currently out-of-state, after your adoption application and home have been approved, we would have the pet transported to a transfer location closest to you within a week or two. You would meet the transport and pick up your rescue at a pre-designated location, then foster him/her in your home for a two week trial period before committing to a final adoption. We work closely with you as needed to help make your rescue’s transition into your home and your adoption experience enjoyable and as successful as possible. This includes, if at any point, you find you and your adoptable pet are not a good fit, we will find someone else to foster or adopt him/her, then additionally help you find a rescue who is a better fit for you and your family. ADOPTION FEE A final, tax-deductable adoption donation of $450 is kindly requested. This covers the $200 cost of transportation, plus a $250 donation to offset any needed medical and care expenses after rescue. This donation is not a fee or sale price, but a request to defer or reimburse rescuer for any and all medical expenses and transportation costs, or any other expenses incurred by the dog or rescuer to consider dog for adoption. This fee is non-refundable once final payment has been received.

More about this rescue

Charlie's Crusaders Pet Rescue is a non-profit organization and an all volunteer, foster based rescue comprised of a group of passionate dog lovers whose mission is to rescue, provide sanctuary, and ultimately to re-home abandoned, stray and neglected dogs in the Mid-South. We rescue from Mississippi and Tennessee and surrounding areas where almost all the shelters are extremely high kill, and then we transport them up North. We adopt out to any state, but specialize in adoption to Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Connecticut, New York, Rhode Island, Virginia, Ohio and Delaware. Once in our care, Charlie's Crusaders Pet Rescue dogs are housed in private foster homes or non-kill safe houses where they are provided with an enormous amount of love and attention. All our rescues are vet checked, updated on all vaccines, spayed/neutered, and evaluated for temperament and personality. This helps us to place them in homes that are well suited to their needs and to the needs of their future owners. We then work to get them transported to foster homes and potential adopters in the Northeast. While in foster care, we teach house training and basic obedience until they find their forever homes.
