BREVARD COUNTY • MERRITT ISLAND, FLORIDA – Coastal Poodle Rescue will host a fundraiser on Saturday, Dec. 16 and Sunday, Dec. 17 at Pet Supermarket on Merritt Island from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
For a $10 donation, you will receive a 4×6 full-color photo in a festive frame of your pet or the entire family. Everyone is welcome, including every breed of dog, cats, ferrets, birds and even snakes for pictures. Also, children and families like to have a picture with Santa.
Coastal Poodle Rescue is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of poodles and poodle mixes that are brought into the system. All dogs are housed in homes of foster parents where they are evaluated and all medical issues are addressed.
Many times dogs come into rescue with surprising medical issues which require time and money to stabilize them before placing in a forever home. One such dog is “Snuggy,” who has an autoimmune disorder which caused her to have low platelet count. She has been on medications since the end of August and goes in twice a week for blood-work.
“So far we have spent over $2,000 on her medical issues,” said Snuggy’s owner. “We have had ups and downs but her body is finally responding and no longer destroying her platelets. She is being tapered off her meds and we have high hopes she will be stable and ready for a new home soon.
“Snuggy is a fun loving miniature poodle. She loves to chase lizards and frogs. Also loves her human and bonds quickly. Gets along with other dogs but would probably rather be an only fur baby. Help us help all the poodles that come into Coastal Poodle Rescue by supporting us at pictures with Santa.”
