We are dedicated to the rescue and welfare of German Shepherd Dogs. Our volunteers help foster and adopt dogs to willing homes. Please help us in our efforts, for their sake.
“Every dog has a story, how it ends depends on you...”
Our homeless furry friends are in desperate need of a loving and caring home.
If you cannot adopt, any act of kindness while they wait, will change their lives forever.

Special Covid 19 Announcement

We are still adopting dogs during the COVID-19 epidemic. Our public events have been cancelled, so we are using individual appointments to match families with dogs. Having a dog is a great emotional boost. This is the perfect time to adopt, since you will have lots of time to get to know your dog and set a routine.

We currently have a large number of adoption applications coming in. Consequently, we have modified our adoption process. Click here for more information.

If you’ve ever thought about fostering, do it now! You have the time, and we work with you to make sure your fostering time is fun and rewarding. Click here.

Foster Homes Needed    Foster Info

Not all of our rescue Shepherds are lucky enough to go directly into a foster home; some have to start in a kennel. Every rescue dog must be in a foster home before it can be adopted. In a foster home it will experience the love, care, and attention it needs and deserves while it is waiting to be adopted and we will observe the personality of the dog to help place it in the best possible forever home.

YOU can foster a German Shepherd Dog! Our network of rescue volunteers is there to help you with advice, and Rescue pays for the care of the dog including food and authorized veterinary expenses. Won't you consider fostering a German Shepherd who wants a second chance at a happy life? Fostering is a very rewarding experience, not only for you, but for the dogs too!

Spotlight


Tofu

Spotlight Dog

Tofu is a beautiful healthy 3 year old male that acts like a big puppy. He loves people and other dogs and lives to play with them and with toys.

Tofu aced his shelter evaluation with a happy, playful demeanor but also responded to sit and down, although he couldn't stay in either for long, too much energy. In fact, he was returned to the shelter after adoption for being too high energy. A German Shepherd with high energy, imagine that!

In the right home where he can get exercise and training he will be an amazing dog. He is drop dead gorgeous with his all white coat except for one black spot on his left hind leg. His temperament is outstanding and he lives to meet anyone and everyone.
