I have had the pleasure of being a volunteer for Coastal Pet Rescue the past few months. Everyone involved is so dedicated to providing lots of love and great care to these cats and dogs. It takes a village to rescue, socialize, and find loving families for these pets, and we have a great team at CPR!
This story starts with our Chihuahua Sabrina crossing over the rainbow bridge on February 13th. She almost made it to her 15th. birthday. We were grateful to have her for so long but were heartbroken over the loss. It also left her sister Lacee grieving the loss. We knew we would eventually add to our family and had decided to adopt senior dogs. The decision to adopt another pup was just a matter of timing. We were looking through the Coastal Pet Rescue site and saw this adorable face that belongs to a senior named Gracie. We weren't sure if we were ready but we kept coming back to that cute little face and that senior pup Gracie. We talked about it and decided that she was the one we wanted to fill that void. She would add to our family that missing piece and we would give her the forever home she deserved. So we filled out an application and we received a phone call that same night. We placed a deposit on her and learned more about her story. Coastal Pet Rescue brought her up to date on her shots, provided dental work that was desperately needed and microchipped her. The adoption process went smoothly and now Gracie is in her forever home. Lacee is happy, we are happy, and Gracie is happy. Thank you Coastal Pet Rescue for the perfect fit and making our family complete.
I moved to town without knowing a soul and this group welcomed me with open arms, quickly becoming my friends. The volunteers are always ready when an animal needs love and attention, food, or to go to the vet for a sudden sickness. Coastal Pet Rescue doesn't pass up sick or old animals like some rescues do, always willing to shoulder the extra work and occasional heart ache that comes along with them, in an effort to give them a happy life and loving experience.
I foster parent for some of the dogs rescued by CPR. It's a great group of people who work hard and really love the animals that other people have thrown away. I cannot say enough about this organization.
I have been a volunteer for CPR only since May, but in that short time, I have found an organization full of people who work tirelessly toward the betterment of the homeless animal population in our community. By educating and bringing people together to get animals adopted and into furever homes, Coastal Pet Rescue has an emmense impact in our city. This positive impact makes the urge, to help those who can not help themselves, contagious. CPR is a wonderful charity working toward a more than worthwhile goal.
We got BOTH of our doggies through Coastal Pet Rescue, 7 years apart, and they adore each other. Diana and Carolyn gave them each so much love. Both puppies came to us potty trained at ages 13 weeks and 10 weeks of age respectively.
What an amazing organization, Lisa... and what devoted foster parents you are, Carolyn and Diana.
I cannot say enough about Coastal Pet Rescue! When a friend's mother recently passed away, we agreed to take care of her senior dog until we could find her a forever home. We reached out to Coastal Pet Rescue after a friend referred us, and they were simply amazing. Not only did they help us with the expenses of food, flea treatment, etc, they found this sweet little girl a happy forever home, which was not easy, as she had hearing and vision issues.
The group consists of so many wonderful and dedicated volunteers, and we are now more than happy to be fosters for pets on their happy way to a new and happy future!
I rescued, or they rescued me, Angel and Ryleigh from CPR. They were professional and loving all the way.
I've been volunteering with CPR for a couple years - it is a great organization that has saved the life of thousands of animals. Cannot recommend it highly enough, whether you are looking to volunteer, foster or adopt.
