Placing an Animal with Coastal Pet Rescue

We can offer you placement assistance if you must re-home your current pet(s) and meet the following criteria:

  • Death of a family member
  • Domestic violence situation
  • Foreclosure
  • Military deployment
  • Found stray pet and medical care has been given

All pets must be current on vaccinations and spayed or neutered before considered for placement assistance. We will check records with your vet before drop off. Space is incredibly limited and will be allocated based upon need.

Before you make the final decision to give up your pet, please read this information: Can We Help You Keep Your Pet?

You will need to submit a surrender form first. We will contact you if we have a foster home available or to let you know the next steps for placement assistance.

Out of area rescuers, groups and shelters: please note that our space is limited. We primarily rescue in the metropolitan Savannah and lowcountry South Carolina areas: Chatham County (Savannah, Tybee Island, Pooler), Liberty County (Hinesville, Fort Stewart), Bryan County (Richmond Hill), Effingham County (Rincon, Guyton), Bluffton, Hilton Head and Beaufort). Due to difficulties with transportation and care logistics, we are unable to take pets outside of these areas. Please visit to find other rescues in your area.

How do I get assistance with feral cats in my neighborhood?

We do not have a feral cat program. We recommend you visit Alley Cat Allies for tips and recommendations.

I found a stray pet. Will you take it?

All stray animals must go to municipal animal control. Animals that have been injured will be taken by animal control officers to a local veterinary clinic. Coastal Pet Rescue visits area Animal Controls regularly to pull animals into our program.
