About Our Rescue Group:

Mission Statement:
To find caring, loving, permanent homes for surrendered, abandoned or neglected dogs and puppies. Northwest German Shepherd Rescue hopes to ease the problem of the population overflow occurring in many of our shelters today. We educate the individual on the importance of sterilizing the pet and providing superior care.

We are composed of a network of foster families and are in need of finding more foster care providers with the time and commitment to provide care for these animals in transition. We also are in need of people to provide transportation for these animals. We are an all- volunteer rescue.

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.
