Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
Shepherds' Hope Rescue was formed by two independent rescuers who forged an alliance to more effectively help our beloved breed. We are disturbed by the alarming increase of German Shepherd Dogs in the country's animal shelters and in neglectful situations. We are not a shelter nor do we have our own facility. As volunteers, we house our rescue dogs either in our own homes, foster homes if available, or board them with dog sitters or kennels until placed with their new families. We make the commitment to each and every animal to resolve any health or behavioral issues prior to adoption, and all dogs are vaccinated, spayed/neutered and heartworm tested.
Come Meet our Pets:
As dogs are housed in multiple locations, appointments are made on an individual basis.
Our Adoption Process:
Our application and home visit process ensures we are placing our dogs in the best possible situations. German Shepherds are not for everyone, and as long-time, multiple Shepherd owners ourselves, we are familiar with the type of home/family best suited for this breed. We also take into considerations the dog's needs and temperament so that both dog and family are happy with the placement. Our goal is save as many German Shepherds and mixes as possible and unite them with loving and caring owners so that they will never suffer or know sadness again.
