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 Dog

Georgie O is a 1-year old GSD mix from the Oakland Animal Shelter. He can be pretty chill for a youngster and loves nothing more than to lie on the rug and chew a good bone or kong; stuffed, frozen bones are his favorite. He is in general a good and loving kind of dog.

Georgie has good house manners but still needs some supervision. He is crate trained and often naps in the open crate in the living room and sleeps quietly through the night in the bedroom crate.
