About Our Rescue Group:

Mission Statement and Objective
To find loving forever homes for adoptable German Shepherd Dogs placed in shelters, strays and owner turn-ins. Provide needed medical care, training and rehabilitation to neglected, abused or sick German Shepherd Dogs until they are ready for adoption.

Who We Are
The TBGSR is an all volunteer non-profit pet rescue organization for German Shepherd Dogs. We are supported by private donations, adoption fees, fund raisers and bequests from individuals and businesses. All of our pets are spayed/neutered prior to adoption. They are up-to-date on all vaccinations and heartworm negative. We are dedicated to helping our adoptable animals find good homes where they will be safe, well cared for and loved for the rest of their lives. Caring for these animals allows us to learn more about their personalities and helps us to place them in a home best suited for them.

Tampa Bay German Shepherd Rescue welcomes volunteers. If you are a fan of the GSD, we need your help. Please contact us & let us know how you'd like to assist us.

Foster Homes Needed
We are always in the need of foster homes to house dogs that are going though medical care while getting them ready for adoption. The more wonderful families willing to foster a dog, the more wonderful German Shepherds we can save.

Also when our shelter is full, this means we have to turn down worthy candidates and can not pull dogs from shelters because space is at such a premium. All dogs are spayed/neutered, wormed, treated for fleas, vaccinated and on heartworm preventative. We provide a crate, leash, collars and food.

If you have some time, a little patience and alot of love to spare, we need you to help make these guys good adoptable pets. PLEASE EMAIL US for more info.

How To Adopt A New Friend
If you are interested in adopting a new family member from our organization, please complete the online adoption application. If you prefer, you may contact us by e-mail so we can send you an application. Our adoption fee of $100 to $250 is based on the dog and it's needs. Senior dogs, special need dogs and senior citizen adoptions are $100; all others are $200-$250. The adoption fee helps cover expenses for the dogs while in the rescue program including the vet check, vaccines, heartworm testing, stool check, spay/neuter plus other necessary veterinary care and training to get the dog ready for adoption.

Everyone must submit an application before an appointment is made to come and meet the dogs. We work BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
