Coastal Pet Rescue is an all-volunteer non-profit animal rescue organization, founded in February 2003, based in Savannah, Georgia dedicated to saving the lives of homeless, abused and neglected dogs and cats in the Coastal Empire Savannah and surrounding areas.
It provides rescue, foster care, veterinary care, and sterilization for animals in county animal shelters that would otherwise be euthanized.
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. They also provide 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.
Moreover, they also hold training of leadership team members and volunteers in the areas of humane education, animal welfare, animal behavior and care, and disaster response. They also give education to the public in the form of adoption counseling, pet behavior consultation and training, hurricane evacuation planning, media interviews, and classroom presentations.
As a non-profit group, they are open for volunteers who wish to be a part of the rehabilitation process of the companion animals under their care. Interested parties can serve as foster homes for pets who are still waiting for their permanent and loving second homes.
In addition, members of the community can also participate in adoption events held regularly. Volunteers can take part in manning the group’s booth, selling items, taking adoption applications, setting up before, and cleaning up afterwards.
Coastal Pet Rescue receives funding for its rescue efforts through fundraising events, individual donations, and business sponsorships. Adoption fees are nominal ($150 for dogs/puppies; $40 for cats/kittens) and go towards the cost of the spay/neuter for each adopted pet. All monies invested in the pet, such as boarding, feeding, grooming, and veterinary care, are never fully recovered. Donations can be made via PayPal.
They can be reached through mail at PO Box 30462 , Savannah, GA 31410.
