Warmest Wishes for a wonderful holiday.

Thanks to YOU and your loyal support of our mission, over 600 deserving souls were saved from shelters throughout Southern California, with nearly 500 spending the holidays with their new families! 

At Coastal German Shepherd Rescue, the holidays remind us of the tremendous acts of kindness and generosity by our faithful donors, adopters and volunteers.  As we enter our eleventh year as a rescue, we THANK YOU because without YOU, Coastal wouldn't still be in existence and saving lives from birth to aged!

2014 has been a dynamic year and, as it comes to an end, we will have saved well over 600 dogs.  That includes TWENTY Two litters of moms & pups that were saved because SOMEONE  cared and opened their homes to these many little families that take so much work and love to raise and place.

We are proud to say that we also saved many senior dogs this year because SOMEONE  cared, many of whom have found adopters who opened their hearts to a grey muzzle that may not be with them for the longest time, but oh how loved they are in their last years.


Because YOU care,  many severe medical cases were able to be successfully rehabilitated, such as Rocky, below.   Broken legs, horrific skin conditions, eye issues, ear infections, pneumonia, distemper and parvo, to name a few.  Our medical partners have been indispensable in helping our most serious cases. 


Thank you for being someone who continues to support Coastal German Shepherd Rescue.  Because of YOU, we continue this never ending mission of rescue.  As you consider tax deductible donations before January 1, we hope that Coastal will be on your list.  The dogs (& our hard working all volunteer team) will thank you for helping us to continue to save so many lives!



The dogs and people of Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

We are happy to announce that Rocky was adopted by his fosters! "We will most likely be naming him Aron Ralston... we will call him Rally for short." Ralston survived a canyoneering accident in 2003, during which he amputated his own right forearm in order to extricate himself from a dislodged boulder, underneath which he had been trapped for five days and seven hours (127 hours). It is believed that Rocky chewed off his foot to free himself from being tied and tangled in a chain, to which he was tethered in his backyard.

Thanks to you, Duke 2 is enjoying Christmas with his new family in a warm home and surrounded by people who love him.
