Shepherd rescue asks for support

COAST CITIES — Coastal German Shepherd Rescue of San Diego is matching donations to help save more dogs in 2014.

German shepherds are ranked in the top three on lists from groups like the American Kennel Club and are recognized as loyal, intelligent companions and service dogs; hard-working military, law/drug enforcement, and search/rescue dogs. Yet despite their record of noble service and sacrifice, too many shepherds need rescuing.

Through New Year’s Day, every dollar donated to Coastal German Shepherd Rescue of San Diego will be 100 percent matched up to $20,000.

There are several ways to give:

— Visit the Facebook page at

for a secure online PayPal donation or go to

— Mail a check to Coastal German Shepherd Rescue of San Diego,

PO Box 722381, San Diego, CA 92172

— In person, visit the adoption event at PetSmart at Encinitas Town Center, 1034 N. El Camino Real, Encinitas from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 21

Coastal German Shepherd Rescue of San Diego is an all-volunteer, 501(c)3 certified nonprofit organization dedicated to finding loving homes for abandoned, neglected, or abused German shepherds and shepherd mixes throughout Southern California.
