Headquartered in Magnolia Springs, All About Dogs Coastal Rescue is a non-profit organization that operates a network of volunteers. Founded in 2011, this relatively new rescue has already helped hundreds of dogs find forever homes.
Their mission is stated simply, “to assist stray, abused and abandoned dogs by placing them in loving, caring homes”. The simplicity should not undercut the scope of their efforts … nothing less than the saving of lives. By all accounts, they are focused, disciplined and willing to go the extra mile when it comes to canines in need.
In these few short years, All About Dogs Coastal Rescue has already developed working relationships with numerous local rescues, county-run shelters and veterinary clinics. They’ve even partnered with a Connecticut-based labrador rescue, expanding their reach well beyond the Mason-Dixon line. Being accepted into their program means that abandoned dogs have a shot at a much longer and happier life, as euthanasia is still in practice at local shelters. Operating solely on donations and fundraising events, every cent goes straight to the medical and ongoing care of their animals.
While other rescue groups struggle with timely adoptions, this organization averages a fairly short foster period … typically only a month! Each new rescue receives medical care, a temperament evaluation and socialization training prior to adoption. Volunteers provide nurturing environments, working toward the day when these lucky dogs will find their new, permanent home.
Any behavioral issues are addressed by each volunteer during the foster period. An adoption coordinator interviews prospective adopters to assess the suitability of a match. With a minimal adoption fee, especially compared to what you'd pay in a pet store, approved applicants can take home the dog of their dreams.
In addition to their vital rescue work, All About Dogs Coast Rescue dedicates a portion of their minimal resources to promoting spay and neuter, to help curb pet overpopulation.
All About Dogs Coastal Rescue plans to use the financial award given by The Dr. Jane Foundation to cover the costs of veterinary care for several of their dogs.
