Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Raider has been adopted! 12-29-2005

Female about 0 old.

Whiskey and Raider were rescued late last week. We originally thought they were both boys, but it turned out that Whiskey is a girl!

We were contacted by a shelter in Riverside because these two gorgeous "mature" dogs were on their euthanasia list. We were their last chance.

Whiskey and Raider are seven to eight years old and lived with the same owner their entire lives. Then their person bought a motorhome and decided to travel, and he abandoned his loyal pets at this very high kill animal shelter. Because Whiskey and Raider were turned in by their owner the shelter only had to keep them for 24 hours and we had to scramble to bring them to safety.

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $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 when permitted by law. 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.
