Fosters Needed

His ear is bent from a hematoma.  His nose is scarred from trying to escape from who knows what.  His fur is matted and full of grease, but he doesn't care.  Gibson made his trip to freedom from one of the highest kill shelters in the county recently.    He's a senior boy who looks like he's had a life of hard knocks, but he knows that better days are here.  People actually looked at him and touched him, and their touch was gentle and they didn't shrink away from the dirt and filth that he has been wearing for quite a while.  Someone even said they loved him.  He even got to stop and smell the grass, and frolic in it.  Yes, life is good.  
Gibson is one of many dogs we have in need of a foster.  He has had a bath now, and what a beautiful boy.  While he is waiting for his forever home, he would love to have a foster family to call his own.  
Gibson has lots of friends at the kennel who would love to lay their heads down on a nice soft pillow at night time while they dream of their families to come.  
If you can help foster , short term, long term, special needs, regular needs, please e-mail Teresa Baltao at  information@coastalgsrsd.org.

Calling all smartphone users. Android and iPhone users, you're in! (Windows phone users stand by for future updates), there is an app that when you walk a dog (any dog), the rescue gets financial help. Yup, you walk your dog and benefit the dogs of Coastal. It will give you monthly updates on your walks also. It a great way for you to track your miles and help you and your dog get fit (or fitter!).

Hopefully we can spread the word, and get the dogs of Coastal some help, and everyone benefits.  It doesn't matter where you're located either!

Just go to http://www.wooftrax.com/, there you will see the links to the Google Play store, and Apple store as well.
