PETS OF THE WEEK: Coastal Animal Rescue | Community | Savannah News, Events, Restaurants, Music

Each week, we will highlight animals available for adoption from local rescue organizations. In December we present Coastal Pet Rescue.


AGE: 1.5 years


WEIGHT: Large (50 to 75 lbs)

If you are looking for an active dog with a lot of personality then Sam might be the dog for you. This guy has a lot of energy, loves to play and would be a great companion for an active person. Do you like to walk? Sam too!

If you need to travel Sam is fine with that too and does well in the car. Need to do some work? Sam will be fine hanging out near you or even playing with his own toys. Want to watch a movie? Sam is perfectly happy to relax and lie down next to you.

Although he enjoys walking around, a fenced yard would be best for him as he is always a curious puppy. Especially with cats so a feline-free home is needed for Sam. He has also been very selective towards dogs and if he has a doggie friend he will need to be one who can give him some space and not. being too persistent with him. As always, it is best to have a slow, supervised introduction.


AGE: 1.5 years

COLORS: White & Orange

WEIGHT: Small (less than 10 lbs)

If you are looking for an affectionate and playful cat then Butter could be your man. This cat is a non-stop pet and play festival. He wants ALL the pets, the love and attention you can give him.

He’s also a curious boy who wants to be a part of whatever action you have going on – watching a movie, doing chores, playing games – this guy is all for having a good time! If you really want to have fun, give this guy a cat pinch toy and step back for some fun.

Despite all his playfulness, Butter also enjoys being held and cuddled in his arms, and will politely let you know when he’s ready to come down and have some fun again. He also loves his roommates and would be a great addition if you are looking for a friend and playmate for your current cat.

No dogs for Butter though. While your dog might be the sweetest on the planet, Butter isn’t shy about letting them know that they don’t want to be one of them. This is a cat-only home where it is sure to grab your undivided attention.
