Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Stella has been adopted! 01-22-2006

Female about 0 old.

Our volunteers who where "home" for the holidays (one volunteer) made an absolutely heroic effort to save Stella and her babies. She got the call that it had to be done on Christmas eve. There was no time to wonder where the money would come from, nobody to post a plea for donations. There was only the faith on the part of our volunteer that this emaciated mother and her babies had to be helped, even if it meant other dogs would have to be left to their fate after the emergency passed.

It didn't even matter that when we met Stella, we realized that neither she nor her puppies where close to being German Shepherds. This is what we do. Stella's puppies were just too sick and malnourished, despite the best care we could give, none survived. Stella, as you can see, has been transported from hell to a foster home with another of our superhero volunteers where she's getting all the TLC in the world. Stella is a sweet girl. Can you make a place for her in your home? Can you contribute to her care? Can you see what one bag of dog food might do? Can you sponsor Stella's care, or foster this sweet girl who obviously needs some TLC? Make a donation here.

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.
