Coastal German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County is honored to be an official Charity Partner of the OC Marathon 2012!
153. The number of dogs in our care.
$40,000. The amount we owe in vet bills.
We are looking to you, our faithful supporters, to help us pay these bills. Our ability to get ahead of these vet bills is what allows us to do what we do each and every day.
Last year was our most challenging year on record -- we are still recovering. Coastal GSR spent over $200,000 taking care of so-called 'throw away' dogs that we rescue from shelters every day of the week. The medical issues are never-ending -- including but not limited to disease, injuries, surgeries and very bad cases of neglect.
Coastal German Shepherd Rescue is using this event as a platform to riase funds to pay these outstanding bills.
We are challenging each of our supporters to donate $5 or more to this cause. Many of us spend that daily on coffee or find that amount in our couch cushions. If each of our supporters could spare that amount, it would make a significant dent in our veterinary bills. Individual donations represent our main source of income.
We appreciate your support in our effort to raise funds through partnership with the OC Marathon!
