THE STORY:

COASTAL GERMAN SHEPHERD RESCUE OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA A PUBLIC wrote -

Coastal German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County is honored to be an official Charity Partner of the OC Marathon 2013 for the 2nd year!

This year, we are dedicating our OC Marathon fundraising efforts toward replenishing a very special fund -- the "Saving Gideon Fund."

History:  In 2008, we rescued a dog named Gideon.  We believe Gideon was hit by a car and then dragged.  He was found in a park missing most of the skin on his left side -- one of the worst degloving injuries our vet had ever seen!

In Gideon's honor, we started the Saving Gideon Fund.  This fund is used for seriously injured or ill dogs who need immediate medical care or will otherwise be euthanized.  Oftentimes the decision to save a life depends upon how much money is in our bank account. It's very sad, but unfortunately the truth!  

We are asking our supporters to help with this fund so that the next time we are asked to save a severely injured or ill dog we can say YES!

Other special-case dogs like Gideon who have been saved and now living in their forever homes include:

  • Phoenix was found wandering the streets of Norwalk with his ears hacked off.  We believe he'd been used as a bait dog. Despite his obvious abuse, Phoenix is the sweetest dog you could possibly meet. 
  • Champ was shot five times while protecting his home from an intruder.  Despite his heroism, his 'owners' refused him medical attention.  Champ was set to be euthanized at the shelter.  
  • Mac and his buddy Cosmo were struck on the freeway after flying out of the back of a pick-up truck.  Both sustained broken bones and significant injuries. 

We wish we could save them all from neglect, abuse, abandonment, starvation and just irresponsible ownership.  We know we can't save them all -- but we can save MORE dogs like these deserving pups with your help!  They don't deserve to die in shelters due to injury or illness. 

We appreciate your support in our effort to raise medical funds through partnership with the OC Marathon!
