November 9th, 2012: Charlie Bear went to doggie heaven. PLEASE CONSIDER ADOPTING OR FOSTERING A SPECIAL NEEDS DOG, THEY NEED HOMES TOO!

An overview for those, who didn't know about Charlie Bear: He came to Pacific Coast Dog Rescue from another rescue that had closed down. His buddy, a Chow, got adopted but nobody ever came for Charlie Bear. He started to have problems walking almost 3 years ago and we took him to several different specialist but nobody could help him. Charlie Bear went to physical therapy and had two different wheelchairs. We expressed his bladder several times a day and he spend his days laying on a blanket by his favorite tree at our kennel facility and on several walks a day in his wheelchair and later in his wagon. Charlie Bear loved going to HOME DEPOT where he got lots of attention and enjoyed his trips to the park with our volunteers. Charlie Bear was definitely a ladies man and loved good snacks. Charlie Bear's health deteriorated to the point, where he could not move alone at all, not even reach his water/food bowls unless handed to him. Upon consultation with a neurologist and our regular vet, we decided to let him go peacefully and with dignity. He had some wonderful last days of going to the beach, the park with his girlfriends and our vet came to us today and Charlie Bear went to heaven on his blanket under his favorite tree, in my arms. Special Thanks to our loving staff, especially to our Director of Operations, who cared for Charlie Bear tirelessly. CHARLIE BEAR IS MY FAVOURITE OF ALL DOGS AND HIS COURAGE, STRENGTH AND BEAUTIFUL SMILE WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN.

About Pacific Coast Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Our licensed kennel facility is located in Burbank. and is always at capacity due to the high number of unwanted dogs and the limited number of great homes.
The dogs at Pacific Coast Dog Rescue have many stories to tell. They were abandoned on the streets, dumped at the local government shelters, tied up in backyards and left to die, given to us by Animal Control as former cruelty case evidence dogs, the list goes on. Even with proper socialization and training at our facility, it sometimes, takes the dogs a long time to "wake up" and enjoy life again.
Our staff has dedicated their love, time and efforts to create the best environment possible for each dog, so that the dogs are ready for you, to give them a loving, permanent home.
We are one of the few rescue organizations, who have an experienced dog trainer on site, our founder David Roe. Please visit our training website at www.bluedogboarding.com
Despite increased spay/neuter efforts through government and private programs, dog and cat overpopulation causes 6 - 8 million companion animals to be killed in government shelters EVERY YEAR in the United States. Of this figure, more than 25% are purebred animals.
So far, we have saved over 2000 dogs but we need your support.
It often takes months and even years to place a dog into an appropriate home, which means, that we incur high costs for the care of the dogs.
Even if you are not in the position to adopt a dog right now, you can help us in many ways: You can make a monetary tax-deductible donation to help us with our extremely high vet bills and the basic care such as food, living quarters and bedding for our dogs. You are welcome to drop off blankets, toys and treats. Please look on our website under "Ways To Help" for more options to be of assistance.
Pacific Coast dog Rescue strives to ensure, the most careful and appropriate placement for our dogs into loving homes. The adoption donation for all of our dogs is $300. All dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption. Many have received professional training before placement.
Through a careful screening process, we make the best possible choice for our dogs to place them with compassionate individuals and families. We often take a bit longer than other rescues organization to place our dogs but we also have very few returns. We do, however always take our dogs back (even years later), if the adopter can't keep the dog.
Pacific Coast Dog Rescue offers a life-long commitment to our dogs and adopters and we are always there to answer any questions and offer training advice/help.
If you have found a dog, or have a dog that needs a new home, please check our Outreach Program.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We typically show our dogs to potential adopters after receiving the online adoption application. We show dogs 7 days a week by appointment at our facility in Burbank.

Our Adoption Process...

The first step of our adoption process is submitting an application. Once this is received, then we will give you a call to talk to you about the dog(s) you may be interested in and any questions you may have.

Filling this out helps us get to know more about you, and what kind of dog will be best for your situation!

You will find our adoption application on our website: http://www.pcdogrescue.org/adoptions.html

PLEASE NOTE: We only adopt dogs to homes in the Southern California area. If you live somewhere other than Southern California, we encourage you to contact rescue groups in your local area.
