EVENT DATE: May 05, 2013
Coastal GSR of Orange County is honored to be an official Charity Partner of the OC Marathon 2013 for the 2nd year!
The Whitehouse Family is dedicating this run to Dylan Whitehouse - he came to our family as a puppy that had a condition known as Mega-Esophagus - which in short, requires special feeding in an upright position doggy high chair 2x daily and sitting veritcal for at least 20 minutes.
Dylan didn't have the easiest start in life - found abandoned on the streets of Carson most likely because of his condition. He was the most amazing dog and we sadly lost him this past September at the age of 5. He is just one of the many dogs that are in need of our help and that is Coastal German Shepherd Rescue's mission - no matter the story, disability, etc... there is always a home for these loving furry friends.
Of course Dylan left a hole in our hearts but it wasn't long until another furry friend came along and needed our help.
We now have Ayden who came to us surprisingly from the same streets of Carson - only he was dumped in a ditch with a front leg that did not work. He is now a thriving 8 month old tri-pod who has brought warmth and smiles to the hearts of our family once again...wasn't sure it was possible after Dylan & big shoes to fill for sure.
We also currently have another Foster dog named Kasey who is a Mega-E and she was abandoned on the railroad tracks in Torrence - found near death with phnuemonia and malnutrition. She is using Dylans chair and is regaining her strength and thriving in her new pack of friends and family.
All this is only possible thru the committment from Coastal GSR and their volunteers to make this possible for the unfortunate situations these dogs end up in. Your help goes to 100% of the care and rescuing of these pups.
On behalf of all the Dylans & Aydens - We thank you for your support!
