Thank you for visiting Coastal German Shepherd Rescue's Strut Your Mutt Team page. We’re raising money to help continue our mission of helping dogs in need. And we plan on having a lot of fun doing it!
Coastal German Shepherd Rescue was founded in 2004 and is dedicated to providing new beginnings for homeless German Shepherds who have been abandoned, neglected, abused, relinquished by their owners, or just left at local shelters to await an uncertain future. We are committed to finding loving permanent homes for the orphaned dogs in our care. Coastal is an all volunteer, no-kill, non profit organization.
This year has been tough all around. There has been an increase in abandoned dogs, particularly dogs requiring medical care. We are dedicated to helping as many dogs as we can but we need your help.
Meet Marley. In August Coastal was notified about a dog in critical condition who needed immediate rescue. Marley had arrived at a Southern California city shelter with a distended abdomen, unable to walk, panting, not eating or drinking, and worsening by the minute. Without any time to spare, one of our dedicated volunteers jetted to the shelter and rushed her to our vet.
Upon exam, our vet said Marley had the most severe case of pyometra they had ever seen. She was immediately transferred to the emergency hospital, stabilized, and underwent surgery. Thanks to everyone who rushed to help her, Marley made it through the surgery but was not out of the woods. After a nerve-racking week, thanks to supporters like you and the incredible care she received at the hospital, Marley turned a corner. She continued to recover and was finally able to leave the hospital. None of this would have been possible without your help and we hope that you will continue to rally around Marley and other deserving dogs in our care.
Please join us in our mission to help dogs like Marley by registering for our team and/or donating. Your donation is tax deductible and Coastal German Shepherd Rescue receives 100 percent of the money raised after transaction fees. And the best part? That money will help save the lives of more dogs in need.
Thank you for your support, we couldn't do what we do without you!
