Ginger's Story...
This sweet and loving girl has been with us OVER a year, and we cannot seem to understand why???? Ginger is ready to make her 2014 debut! Look at this gorgeous girl! Ginger is an American Pit Bull Terrier, some also know them as American Staffordshire Terriers. She is nearly 3 years old and has been with our rescue for almost a year!!!! This gorgeous girl has the most beautiful blue fawn coat you have ever seen! Ginger came to us very pregnant, and in very bad condition. Unfortunately due to what our vet feels was improper care while she was pregnant, she gave birth to 6 still born puppies. She had a rough time after the pregnancy and was very confused and sad about where her puppies were. Since that time she has blossomed into the most cuddly and loving companion. Ginger LOVES to snuggle with her foster mom and dad. She would be best in a home with kids 6 and older, although a younger dog savvy child would be ok too with proper supervision. She is a little shy when meeting strangers but with a little patience she warms up very quickly. She would do well in a home with male dogs and no cats for this little girl. She is a petite gal weighing about 48 lbs. Ginger is house broken, and the quietest dog in the kennel. She could be a great obedience dog as she is very eager to learn and very intelligent. Because UKC allows for the registration under "limited" status she could compete in UKC performance events for someone that is looking for that obedience dog! Ginger is spayed, current on vaccines, heart worm tested negative and current on prevention, micro-chipped and fecal checked negative. She is available to immediately to an approved home.

About East Coast Gentle Giants Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a local group of caring individuals dedicated to educating people on how to properly raise their Mastiff breeds. We take in dogs that have been turned over to shelters, abused, neglected, and help them on their way to recovery. We do take in owner surrenders when space is available. Our goal is to adopt our dogs out to great, forever, loving homes where they will be nurtured and taken care of the way we take care of our own dogs.

Our Adoption Process...

ADOPTION PROCESS
1) READ THE ADOPTION PROCESS
2) READ THE ADOPTION GUIDELINES
3) FILL OUT AN ADOPTION APPLICATION-NOTIFY YOUR VET AND YOUR REFERENCES THAT EAST COAST GENTLE GIANTS WILL BE CALLING
4) BE AVAILABLE FOR THE INITIAL PHONE INTERVIEW
5) SET UP A MEETING TIME FOR A HOME CHECK
6) MEET THE PERSPECTIVE FOSTER DOG
7) UPON THIS WE WILL BEGIN THE ADOPTION PROCESS
8) SIGN THE ADOPTION CONTRACT AND PAY THE ADOPTION FEE
9) ENJOY YOUR NEW FURBABY AT HOME!!!!

RECENT CHANGE IN OUR ADOPTION PROCESS: DUE TO THE UNAVAILABILITY OF A LOT OF OUR VOLUNTEERS, AND A HIGH NUMBER OF APPLICATIONS BEING TURNED IN, PLEASE DO NOT FILL OUT AN APPLICATION UNLESS YOU ARE SERIOUSLY INTERESTED IN ONE OF OUR RESCUE DOGS.

All of our dogs are check over by a licensed veterinarian. When they are medically cleared and altered they will be available for adoption. Dogs through our rescue require an adoption application be filled out if you have an interest in any of our rescues. After this process we will check your references and decide whether you are a good candidate for one of our rescue dogs. At this point we will set up a meeting with you and your family in order to make sure we have the perfect match between dog and owner. If we feel that it is a good match we will do a home visit to see where your new fur baby will be staying. After this is all checked out and approved, we will go ahead with the adoption process. At this point you will sign a contract stating that you are the care taker for this dog and that you are responsible for his/her well being. If for any reason at anytime in the dogs life, you can no longer care for them, we require that the dog come back to us so that we may find them another home.

All dogs will come with their annual shots, heart worm test, fecal test and rabies. Dogs that are not altered will be or will be required to be altered within 30 days and proof is required within 7 days of completion of the surgery. The only reason we adopt a dog out that is unaltered is when they are too young or too small for the surgery. We are not going to keep 8 week old puppies until they are 5 months to spay or neuter them, but we do take a deposit to ensure that they are spayed or neutered within an allotted amount of time after the adoption has taken place.

Our dogs are our number one priority, please be patient with the application process, if you have not heard back from us in a week just send us another email reminding us that you are still interested in a dog. We have a lot of dogs that require a lot of attention and we many not be able to get back to you right away.

The application process takes us a lot of time,especially when we have more than one person particularly interested in a certain dog. The whole process takes anywhere from 2 weeks up to a month. We want to ensure that you are just as dedicated to one of our rescues as we are. Please be patient but check back with us often on the status of your application.

Our adoption fees can be found here:

http://eastcoastgentlegiants.com/adoption-fees

Adoption fees are subject to change without notice.

Puppies under the age of 7 months have a significantly higher adoption fee then our other dogs and may require a spay or neuter deposit depending on the breed.

Puppies under 7 months, especially litters are very expensive to feed, de-worm and keep healthy due to risk of infections and communicable diseases. This is the reason puppies have a higher fee because they cost more to maintain in the long run.

For Seniors over 9 there is a reduced fee as well.

Please be advised that these adoption fees are collected to ensure a serious home for our rescue dogs only and also to cover the cost of our veterinary bills. Please keep in mind that some dogs only need to be sped up to date on shots and others require thousands of dollars of surgeries to make them better, and the fees for the adoption fee do not changed based on how much we have spent on the dog.

All of the dogs and puppies from our rescue come with:

UTD on shots including Distemper/Parvo (DaPPv) Bordatella Canine Flu(CIV, H3N8) and Rabies
Heartworm test (dog over 1 year old or younger dogs with no proof of hw meds andministered prior to entering rescue)
Deworming
Fecal test-Smear and float
Spay/Neuter (dogs over 7 months)
Microchip(HomeAgain)
5 Lbs of current food (Petway Supreme Chicken and Brown Rice)
Leash and Collar


Each dog we take in costs anywhere from $200-1,000 to treat and our adoption fees DO NOT change based on how much we have spent on the dog as far as veterinary care.

Because we rescue large and extra large breeds, our adoption fees do run higher then other rescues, this is mainly because (1) we cannot get any type of grants because we do not have IRS non-profit statues (2) most of our rescues weigh in excess of 115 lbs thereby making spay/neuter surgeries alone more costly then your average 50 lb dog.

Please do not ask if our adoption fees are negotiable. They are not, if you cannot afford the adoption fee for a dog that has been fully vetted, we will not adopt the dog out to you. Once in a while a dog that has come into rescue already vetted will have a reduced adoption fee.
