The arm of Coastal German Shepherd Rescue reaches far and wide, farther than we ever imagined. It's never an easy thing to say no to saving a dog in need, and we found that to be the case when we agreed to sponsor Dikran "Deke", an Armenian Gampr. The Gampr is a breed native to the Armenian highlands, with a history that is over 2,000 years old. They are a majestic, noble herding breed. The photo on the left is what the Gampr breed typically looks like. The photo on the right is a picture of Deke, the Gampr that Coastal would like to save.
Deke will be transported from Armenia to Los Angeles so that an orthopedic surgeon in the states can see if there is anything that can be done to help save this dog, either from a life of misery, or the final fate of being put to sleep. If he stays in Armenia, there are no resources available for his care and no orthopedic surgeon available to perform the kind of surgery needed to correct his deformity. If he stays in Armenia, in all likelihood he will die.
So we are asking all of our dedicated and much appreciated supporters to find it in your hearts to help this "stranger from a strange land" and give him the life he deserves. We are hoping that you can play an important role in this puppy's journey to a forever home. Deke will be available for foster and/or adoption after our vets have had an opportunity to evaluate him.
Deke is good with all size dogs (not recommended for cats), and kids of all ages. He is a puppy in every way, and needs firm, consistent leadership. He's almost housebroken; he's learning quickly to go outside, but may have an accident now and again. Deke absolutely loves his toys! Deke is currently in Los Angeles. We are looking for a local foster home in Southern California. If you would like to open your home to this youngster, please fill out our online foster application.
Often, the decision to save a dog's life is determined by our ability to pay their medical bills! We have not been able to assist as many medical cases as our hearts have wanted to over the past couple of months due to a depleted medical fund. All too often, shelters in Southern California label a dog to be rescue only due to illness. This means the dog is not available for adoption by the public and their only hope for getting out of the shelter is a rescue.
Even more often, the dogs are released with a waiver of spay or neuter. This means that our rescue is taking on a dog that may likely be ill, is not altered and may not have its vaccines, all of which we are committed to taking care of. As an all-volunteer group that depends solely on donations, we now work even harder to raise the dollars to help these homeless pets!
While we have several high cost surgeries recently, just $25 can fully vaccinate one dog! $10 will cover one night of boarding. Your donation, combined with others, can help us put together the funds. Here's how your dollars can help:
We exist solely on donations and fundraising. We don't always like the cards that are dealt us but we are committed to each dog that we rescue. We love the happy tails stories that happen each week and we try very hard to make sure that every dog receives its happy ending. We cannot do this without YOU, our friends, family, supporters, donors, adopters!
