About Our Rescue Group:

Loyal Hearts German Shepherd Rescue is a no-kill, non-profit organization. We are dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of German Shepherd Dogs in need.

Come Meet our Pets:

We do not have a shelter location. Our dogs are kept in foster homes as part of a family, to help prepare them for transition into their forever homes. Most of our dogs are located in Mississippi and Tennessee and need to be adopted before they go on a transport to their new family. Arrangements can be made to meet the dogs who are in in foster homes in the northeast before adopting.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption process involves an application, vet reference, interview, home visit and an adoption contract must be signed. Our adoption fee is $300, which includes the health certificate fee ($50) for dogs who traveled to their new home and is required by the USDA for all animals crossing state lines. The separate ground transport fee ($125) can be paid directly to P.E.T.S. upon pickup of your dog! Please go to the following link and fill out an application if you are interested in giving one of our rescued dogs a new home!

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.
