Childhood and education
Dr. Pol and his wife Diane adopted the baby boy back in 1979 and named him Charles, and as with their other two children, they taught him to love animals and treat them with care and affection. As a matter of fact, young Charles was helping around the farm and his father’s clinic by the age of five! Apparently he was interested in helping animals from the day he could walk, and the viewers of the show which centers around the Dutch vet could recognize this genuine affection.

Of course, Charles could not stay forever on the farm, and he went to the University of Miami, from where he graduated in 2003, majoring was communications, and it seems that he had other plans in mind than to just become an heir to his father’s veterinarian clinic in Michigan.
A career in the entertainment industry
Even though he loved helping around the farm, Charles had other dreams and ambitions. After graduating from the University of Miami, he decided to move to Los Angeles. As we all know, Hollywood is the capital of the entertainment industry, and Charles was probably hoping that he would eventually find his place somewhere under the bright lights of the Hollywood sign. He started working as an inter, employed by renowned companies such as Paramount Pictures and Mirage Enterprises. At one point, Charles was even working as an intern for a true Hollywood legend – the late Sydney Pollack.
How did Charles become a producer?
In 2011, the TV reality series “The Incredible Dr. Pol” was launched by National Geographic Wild, and Charles was among the producers of the show. At the same time, he frequently appeared in the series alongside his father, Dr. Pol. After that, in 2014, Charles was co-producing the series named “Calling Dr. Pol”, and as you could guess – this show was a spin-off of “The Incredible Dr. Pol” and it lasted for three seasons, but in the meantime Charles was an executive producer of the TV series “The Legend of Sheriff Gus Skinner” in 2013.

“The Incredible Dr. Pol”
Charles’ father, Jan Pol is the central figure of the show “The Incredible Dr. Pol” – this Dutch-American veterinarian was born in Utrecht in 1942, eventually moving to the US, and he now runs a vet clinic in rural areas of Weidman, Michigan. The reality TV series follows him around as he helps animals in need, and his son Charles is almost always there to assist him. The show is now entering its 14th season, and it seems that audiences love Dr. Pol’s old-school approach to treating animals and helping them recover from injuries or disease.
What is Charles’ current net worth?
According to authoritative sources, Charles receives a salary of $20,000 from the show, and his overall net worth is over $1 million as of late 2018. Of course, his father’s show is not the only place where you could see the face of Charles Pol, as he also appeared as an actor in “Drunk & Disorderly”, a movie which was released in 2011. Together with his work as a producer on his other projects, it is no wonder that Charles can afford to lead a comfortable lifestyle.
Is Charles married?
Even though some rumors about him being gay appeared in the media, Charles dismissed all that by putting an engagement ring on the finger of his girlfriend Beth Oakes. As it turns out, he and Beth have been childhood friends, and they ‘discovered’ their romantic feelings towards each other in 2017. Their engagement was publicly announced on Twitter, and the couple has also appeared on the show of “The Incredible Dr. Pol”.
Back in 2012, Charles was involved in another romantic affair, with his girlfriend at the time called Kelly. They appeared together at a Halloween party, and a picture of the two of them went public. However, this relationship eventually broke down, and there is no record of Charles having any other girlfriend prior to Beth Oakes.
