Goal & Mission:
Coastal K9 German Shepherd Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit charity dedicated to finding loving, permanent homes for German Shepherds and mixed breed dogs. We are committed to caring for and finding homes for dogs that have been abandoned, neglected, abused, and relinquished at high kill shelters, regardless of age or physical ability.
Our mission is to educate the public about German Shepherds, their lifespan, personality, and activity level, along with overall responsible dog ownership. We also raise awareness of over population of animals through education, training, spaying and neutering. We work very hard to match each dog with the adoptive families.
Help us raise $15,000 at this event to cover medical, food, boarding and general care costs for dogs in need. Check out our website at www.coastalgsrsd.org to learn more about Coastal K9 German Shepherd Rescue of San Diego and see what dogs are available for adoption.
