This holiday season, we’re pleased to bring you good tidings of yet another financial
award given by The Dr. Jane Foundation. This month’s featured grant recipient is
a committed group of canine rescuers in South Alabama.
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 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
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.
Here are just a few of the many canines awaiting the interest of a prospective
AGGIE - Hound-Labrador Retriever Mix
Abandoned on the side of the road after being ejected from a car, Addie has found
a new life with her foster family. Despite the nature of her abandonment, she is
described as ‘incredibly outgoing’ and exhibits a ‘loving personality’. Pucker up,
because this sweetie pie likes to give canine kisses! Unafraid of strangers, she’s
about as close as you can come to having an instant best friend. Highly intelligent
and playful, Aggie is looking for a young, energetic pet parent … could that be
Ozzie - Mountain Dog-Border Collie Mix
You’d never know just looking at this adorable boy that he endured a traumatic
event. Before his rescue after a flood, he was trapped in his crate for two days.
To make matters more tragic, he lost his family and his home. Fortunately, Ozzie’s
new foster family has done amazing work helping him to recover from his ordeal.
He’s very friendly, well-behaved and loves to cuddle. With a mild-mannered personality,
Ozzie will make a good match with just about anyone ready to open their heart and
Schroeder - Basset-Beagle Mix
Meet Schroeder, the shyest of the bunch. His four siblings have already found
their forever homes, but this little tyke is a little too timid for his own good.
Schroeder’s perfect match will be someone with patience and loads of love, to help
coax him out of his shell. He thrives when outside playing, especially with other
dogs. He’s vaccinated, neutered, chipped and up-to-date on monthly preventatives
… in short, nothing is standing in his way of stepping into his new life with the
right pet parent.
