Coastal Pet Rescue: Helping the pets of Savannah's Homeless


Rescuing homeless pets has been the mission of a local animal rescue for the last 15 years, but now their mission is growing.Coastal Pet Rescue announces the launch of their newest outreach program, Operation Street Paws, an effort to provide care for pets living with their owners in homeless camps around Savannah. Once a week, the Operation Street Paws team follows a Chatham-Savannah Authority for the Homeless representative to several of nine selected camps to check in on resident animal needs, ranging from food to basic care or first aid, at no cost to camp residents. Coastal Pet Rescue is also working with individuals to control the pet populations in the camps by offering free spay/neuter services to any owners willing with surgeries being completed at the Animal Hospital at Rice Hope.Operation Street Paws is the second outreach program created by Coastal Pet Rescue. Two years ago, they formed a partnership with the Safe Shelter of Savannah to provide pet housing for victims of domestic violence receiving services from the shelter.For more information on Operation Street Paws and how you can help, click here
