We’re here for every Homeless Individual & Their Pets, but only with your help

Welcome to Charlie Boys Angels

Charlie Boy’s Angels is a small registered charity based in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, England. It helps homeless and vulnerable individuals with their pets. It was founded in 2017, in memory of a small white Staffordshire bull terrier named Charlie Boy. Charlie Boy and his owner Dwayne were sadly made homeless back in November 2016. It was around this time that a small group of volunteers within the local community joined together to help Charlie Boy with some skin issues.

Tragically in January 2017, Dwayne and Charlie Boy were attacked on the streets of Southend. Charlie Boy jumped up to protect his owner and was fatally stabbed. After his death, our local community was filled with not only sadness for this brave boy who had sacrificed his life for his owner, proving his loyalty right to the very end. We were also filled with anger, that such a violent and despicable thing could happen to a man and his dog who were simply trying to survive. We decided that we would continue our work in Charlie Boy’s memory, and do our upmost to ensure that it never happens on our streets again.

Here at Charlie Boys Angels, we help to provide homeless and vulnerable individuals and their pets with basic essentials such as food, toiletries and clothing, access to free veterinary treatment, helping to find safe pet friendly accommodation.

We do not receive any government funding. and rely solely on support from kind members of the public to help us continue doing the work we do each day, and keep our vet treatment free and accessible to those who need it the most.
Some amazing landlords have given us the opportunity to house homeless people with their pets. We oversee that the rent is paid and the places are kept in good condition. We have been promised some more dog friendly places. In 2022 we fed close to 4.500 animals, we housed 21 people and re-homed 8 cats and 14 dogs.
