- Assistance to other animal rescues and shelters throughout Georgia, Florida and South Carolina needing to relocate rescued pets.
- Foster care for animals surrendered by their owners who either can no longer provide for the pets or no longer wish to have them in their homes.
- Adoption of rescued pets to qualified homes that have been properly screened and counseled by our adoption coordinators and foster parents to maintain the pet in the home for a lifetime.
- Training of leadership team members and volunteers in the areas of humane education, animal welfare, animal behavior and care, and disaster response.

Coastal Pet Rescue (CPR) is known in and around Savannah, Georgia as one of the main resources to help homeless animals. It has a great reputation and is led by a fantastic Director. All animals are fostered by volunteers until they can be placed in screened and loving homes. Donations and fundraising help to cover the costs. Treating these animals can be expensive and CPR doesn't give up on them due to lack of funds. I feel lucky to be part of such a wonderful organization that is truly making a difference to the unwanted and homeless animals in my area.
