Send Coastal Pet Rescue to the 2014 HSUS Animal Care Expo in Daytona Beach, FL!

Send us for training so we can help more pets!

You love seeing our success stories made possible by the outstanding dedication of our volunteers, and we love sharing them with you. But to continue to be successful, we need opportunities to learn how to improve our actions and our organization.

This May, a week long animal care expo will be held in Daytona Beach, Fl. This event is sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States and is taught by professionals from around the country in the veterinary, animal rescue/sheltering, and non-profit fields. This training only comes within driving distance about every 4 to 5 years.

That's why we are asking for your help. Your kindness and generosity can make it possible for us to send four members of our team to this training. With your help, Coastal Pet Rescue will be able to change more lives of homeless pets in 2014.

Our fundraising goal is set for $2200 to cover for four people and five nights. The costs include conference registration, lodging and travel.

Remember, you make a difference for our pets just as much as our volunteers, and we are incredibly grateful for all of your support.
