Sweet Homer is a wonderful senior; we’re guessing him to be about 11 years old.
Since his rescue, Homer has developed a wonderful appetite and has put on weight and grown some of his hair back while being in the care of his foster home. He likes to be rubbed, and though he can't hear he loves to be talked to.
While he cannot see or hear, he has learned to make it back to the porch and find his water bowl in the kitchen. He’s carried outside, because he walks in circles so you have to be mindful and be sure to keep an eye on him. As long as he’s taken outside several times during the day, he is good, and is foster mom has taught him to use doggie pads. (Because he can’t see, he still has an occasional mishap.)
Homer’s favorite place to lay is right at his foster mom’s feet, and at night he lays on a pillow beside her bed.

Homer needs someone that is willing to take extra care and time with a senior dog. He is a beautiful soul who is quiet, with a lot of love to give, and is hoping that he’ll find a similar soul to share the rest of his life with.

All Coastal Pet Rescue pets are current on shots, microchipped* and spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Adopters are responsible for any shots that may be due after adoption (particularly for kittens and puppies that must have three rounds of shots to be protected).

CPR has implanted a microchip as part of the adoption process and the chip is included in the adoption fee. However, some chip companies require a registration fee varying from $9.99 to $19.99. The registration fees are the responsibility of the adopter and are NOT included in the CPR adoption fee. Adopters may add this cost to their adoption fee to have CPR register the chip on their behalf.

Adoption Fees:
Kittens: $60, Cats (1 year plus): $50, Puppies: $250, Adult Canines (1 to 6 years): $200, Seniors (7 years plus): $100 (unless otherwise specified). Adoption fees are not a tax-deductible donation as allowed by IRS regulations. Adoption fees help to offset the cost of the pet's care incurred by Coastal Pet Rescue, which are generally 2 to 3 times the adoption fee amount.

30 Days Pet Insurance:
As a Petfinder member, all adopters are entitled to a free 30 day insurance policy through PetFirst. Coastal Pet Rescue is not responsible for this policy. Adopters must call PetFirst’s toll-free number 855-710-7387 to activate the coverage. If adopters fail to call, the policy will not be activated.
