Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

SOS German Shepherd Rescue is dedicated to saving the lives of homeless German Shepherd Dogs in the Midsouth area. We will, however, only place dogs into homes where they will be well-fed, adequately exercised, loved, talked to and treasured as a best friend. Save Our Shepherds Rescue prides itself on facilitating a good match between our foster pets and prospective adopters. We consider the personality traits, habits, and needs of the animal and carefully evaluate how it might fit into the lifestyle of the prospective adopter.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a foster-home-based rescue that tries to first save those dogs at risk in local shelters. However, we can help you re-home a german shepherd in need by offering a courtesy post on Petfinder. (The dog must MEET OUR REQUIREMENTS - be spayed/neutered and have a sound temperament.)

Our Adoption Process:

* All of our rescued friends are Indoor Companions only.

* Matching the right dog with the right family sometimes takes a while, so your patience is appreciated. All applications and emails are answered within 72 hours.

*Our adoption fees are:
$300 for any dog 1 year and younger (BABY)
$250 for any dog 1-6 years (YOUNG)

$150 for dogs over 7 (SENIOR)

*Applicant must be at least 21 years of age and live within 3 hours driving range of where the dog is being fostered. (West Tennessee unless otherwise noted). Longer distance adoptions will only be considered under very specific circumstances.

*A 'home visit' and "vet check" is required prior to the final adoption of any of our canine companions.

*We require that all companion animals in the prospective adoptive family be spayed or neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, and on heartworm prevention. We feel that "responsible" pet owners fit in this category.

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.
