I adopted a dog from CPR, and the whole process was easy and smooth. The adoption cost was very reasonable, and Lisa helped me to find a dog that suited me well. She made sure we got to know each other's personalities a little bit first. She even kept the dog for me until after her spay surgery since I wasn't able to drive her to CPR's vet.
After the adoption, I set up a club to support CPR at the school where I teach. Lisa arranged guest speakers and animal visits. The club ran for two years, and the students learned a great deal about animals and rescues, plus we did some fundraising. The club ran its course, as most things at schools do, but CPR was a wonderful sponsor while it lasted.
My current interaction with CPR is that I donate money and pet items every once in a while, and I recommend CPR to any of my friends who show interest in adopting an animal.

I started out as an adopter from Coastal Pet Rescue. My husband and I adopted a dog and my Mother adopted 2 cats.
I was so impressed with CPR that I have now started volunteering. I have helped find homes for several dogs. Lisa goes out of her way to help the homeless dogs and cats in our area, and she does a lot for the community. I have recommended several people to CPR that were looking for a dog or cat, and I still do.

I have fostered with several local rescues over the years, but Coastal Pet Rescue, by far, has been the best one I have worked with. They pull animals out of the local shelters, and make sure they all receive whatever medical care they may need, before finding them loving families of their own. All animals are fostered in our homes, and treated as our own, until those families are found.

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.
