Christmas Themed Adoption Event Benefiting Coastal Pet Rescue

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) – A local organization is spending Thanksgiving on Christmas decorations. But it’s not just for themselves, they hope you will be a part of it so they can help animals in need.

“Although we haven’t had a good mid-year, but maybe we can end this year with at least a little bit of joy and happiness. Something fun and light rather than anything we’ve had to face in 2020, ”said Coastal Pet Rescue Founder and Director Lisa Scarbrough.

Like most nonprofits, Coastal Pet Rescue has had a tough year supporting their pets. COVID-19 canceled all of their fundraisers and brought more abandoned animals than the previous year; which means less money to feed and support them.

But they hope that all will change with a new event, “Twinkle Bark Stroll”. It all started as a small idea that grew into 28 sponsored trees and wreaths.

Scarbrough says they started installing the light display in October and will be getting it started on Friday night. For a minimum donation of $ 5, you can enter Social Distancing Winter Wonderland and see individual trees and see their adoptable animals.

Leaders say donations are essential to ensure they can continue to serve animals in need.

“I know a lot of people are feeling very frustrated and taxed this year because they just don’t know what’s going to happen next, and we’re right there with them, and that’s why we have to do Twinkle. Bark Stroll. We mean that in 2021 we will still be standing here. We have been here since 2003, we would like to keep at least until 2023 but we are going to need a little more support and even the five dollar donation, if we have everyone passing that we would like to see pass this It will really help us a lot to get through this bump we’re in, ”said Scarbrough.

Tickets will be limited for social distancing and may be purchased online.
