About Our Rescue Group:German Shepherd Rescue of Central Alabama is a private 501(c) (3) non-profit rescue organization. We rescue German Shepherds out of shelters and from abusive situations. We take in abandoned and stray dogs, and we take owner surrenders as space allows. All dogs are neutered or spayed, heartworm free, and up-to-date on shots before they are placed in their forever home. These dogs are kept in private homes and will be shown by appointment only. We do our best to help out any German Shepherd dog in need (primarily in the state of Alabama); unfortunately, we have limited space, and it takes time and money to get some of these babies up to good health and full adoption status. We also help people who are having problems with their German Shepherds. We would like to help owners work through the problems rather than have to give their dog up.
The specific purpose of our organization is the prevention of cruelty to animals by:
Rescuing German Shepherd Dogs from life threatening situations at animal shelters and elsewhere;
Finding German Shepherd Dogs permanent loving homes with qualified owners;
Working cooperatively with animal shelters and other rescue groups in the community toward our common goals of saving dogs lives and reducing pet overpopulation;
Educating the public about the advantages of adopting dogs from shelters and rescue organizations, and about the need for spaying and neutering dogs; and
Educating owners and prospective owners of German Shepherds Dogs about their proper care and training, and about other aspects of the breed
Come Meet our Pets:All of our dogs reside in private homes. We will only show dogs by appointment and to approved applicants.
Our Adoption Process:The first step in adopting a dog from GSRCA is to submit an adoption application. We can mail one to you via the US postal service or an online form may be found on our website. www.gsdcentral.petfinder.com The link to the applications is http://members.petfinder.org/~AL80/application2.html
We ask that the form be filled out completely. We check references and perform a pre- adoption home visit for each applicant. If all criteria are met for adoption, an appointment will be set up to view the dog you are interested in. Please note: It is our goal to place a dog ONCE, therefore we will advise applicants on the best dog match for your personality and lifestyle. The dogs well being is our main priority in the adoption process. We request a $350 adoption fee. A binding adoption contract is signed. Adoption a dog from GSRCA means that we serve to support you for the life of the adoption.
