Coastal Pet Rescue Receives 25 Dogs from Owner with Cancer
(Savannah, GA) - April 26, 2016
On Monday, April 25, 2016, Coastal Pet Rescue volunteers banded together to accept 25 dogs from a elderly cancer patient being evicted from her home.
The rescued dogs range in age from a litter of nine four-day-old puppies and their mom to a 15-year-old who needs masses removed. The breeds include mixes of Chihuahua, Basenji, Beagle, and Boston Terrier, and none were spayed or neutered.
All dogs received their initial vaccinations and check with veterinary staff at the Animal Hospital at Rice Hope. Over the next few days, they will be evaluated by Coastal Pet Rescue’s team to get ready for adoption. All dogs will be current on shots, microchipped and spayed or neutered before going home.
Coastal Pet Rescue is looking for families interested in adopting as well as fostering to adopt some of the dogs as some will need a little more love and time to adjust to their new lives.

Monetary donations for veterinary care are also needed and may be sent to PO Box 30462, Savannah, GA 31410, made online at https://www.gofundme.com/cpr25, or called in to the Animal Hospital at Rice Hope at (912) 965-0330 on Coastal Pet Rescue’s account.
