Remembering Harvey
Rest in Peace

Male about old.

Harvey wandered up to a good samaritan's house starving and dehydrated- he could barely walk anymore! He had no collar, no identification and looked like he had been on his own for some time. The good samaritans figured an owner of such a precious boy would surely be out looking for him. The placed fliers and signs and ultimately took him to animal control. Harvey spent the obligatory 5 days at the shelter and when no one came for him, he was on the short list. Thankfully the shelter contacted the good samaritans and they contacted Coastal German Shepherd Rescue. Harvey has been neutered, vaccinated and is ready for his forever home!

In the meantime, the family who found Harvey has been asking around the neighborhood if anyone has any clues as to where Harvey came from. After piecing stories together, it seems that Harvey lived for sometime behind a Food for Less with a homeless couple. This is the third dog in just as many weeks that we have tried to help that has been homeless for a very long time, living on the streets with their owners. It is heartbreaking as we sit in our homes with our dogs at our feet and realize the small luxuries that so many do not have.

Harvey weighs 78 lbs and is about 5 years old. He gets along great with other dogs, large and small. He doesn't ask for much--loves a full bowl of food and water! Please consider opening your heart and home to Harvey! Harvey is currently in boarding and would love a foster home until he finds his forever home.

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
