BeeBee Needs Surgery as Soon as Possible; Can You Help?

Beebee needs surgery as soon as possible.   It took only one meeting in the shelter for our volunteers to fall in love with Beebee.   She was a beautiful girl in a high kill shelter, middle age, horribly overweight, waiting patiently for her turn to be put to sleep.  She had already been failed by whoever had left her behind.  The volunteers were determined to show her that there was someone who cared about her, someone that would take her from that horrible place, give her the medical attention she needed and help her lose her extra pounds.  That day, Beebee joined Coastal and everyone fell in love.   Beebee needed to be introduced to exercise slowly.  She has been doing very short walks.  She stepped right into her little trot, head held high as she joined her fellow rescues.  Then she got the royal treatment, fitting for our own Queen Beebee.  She got to go to swim therapy.  She loves to swim.  

Unfortunately, we discovered recently that Beebee's weight is not her only problem.  When our happy-go-lucky girl refused to move in her kennel, we rushed her to the vet only to find that she has severe hip dysplasia in both hips.   She has been living in pain for a very long time.   She is being treated now to manage the pain,  but she needs surgery right away.   
We are asking for your help.   Beebee's surgery will cost $2700.  Beebee loves to run and play and swim and be a normal dog.  With your help, we can give Beebee the chance to run again, to swim again, to be pain free.  When Beebee joined rescue, we promised her the best life possible.    It is only with your support that we can keep our promise to her.  Please help with any donation you can.   We can never change her past, but with your help, we can all give her a brighter tomorrow.



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.
