This rescue is wonderful! I’ve met Dara and her husband, and they really do want what’s best for these fur babies. Please make sure to read all the rules before turning in an application. Just because you want a puppy does not mean you should have it. They will do house checks and you MUST have all members of your family 100% on board in order to adopt from them. Like I said, they are just doing what’s best for these pups. I love this rescue, have volunteered for them, and hope to adopt from them some day!
We fostered for a long weekend for an Australian Shepherd 1-2 year old puppy until he was able to find his forever home. Coastal picked him up at Kill shelter, brought him and all necessaries to my front door (crate, shampoo, treats, leashes, collars and all). It was an amazing experience, the Dog was the sweetest and best behaved. I am beyond thankful to have had this experience! So happy we saved Mr Benny!!!! You all are awesome!!
We had a great overall experience and the best result in working with Coastal Sheltie Rescue! We were blessed with the adoption of Remus. There were some communication struggles in the beginning but they are amazing with their dogs and really take the time to make sure each dog finds the right home. When we were in the paperwork process, Dara took the time to show us some training tips and really took her time to make sure things were right. We love our new addition and are so thankful to be a part of this rescues family!
So we were so lucky to be able to adopt Hank. Dara was amazing with the whole process from the moment I put in our application. She cares for all the dogs she takes in from vet visits to picking the perfect family for the dogs they rescue. If anyone is looking to adopt go through them you will not be disappointed. Thanks Dara for choosing us for Hank to be his family
This place is great! They had a dog we were interested in being fostered in another state but we’re able to make transport for him to come to us in order to ensure it would be a good fit! The adoption process was very thorough and yet very smooth! Thank you!
We adore Dara and her team! There was a lot of thought into matching the needs of both the family and pet. We love our newest member and can’t thank Dara and Martin enough for their support!
