About Our Rescue Group:

Imminent Danger German Shepherd Rescue started in January 2011 rescuing German Shepherds and High Content Mixes from the Imminent Danger they were in sitting on Death Row in High Kill Animal Control Facilities in TN, NC, SC, GA, AL, KY & VA. Hundreds of Dogs lives have been spared and we've never worked so hard in our lives to save these wonderful kids. Our process from saving these kids includes 30+ years of experience in working breed dogs. We conduct Safer Tests with all dogs to determine the abilities of the dogs so that we can match the right dog to the right family. We do not shove our dogs out the door. We do multiple videos of the dogs as well to our potential adopters. We disclose all positive and negative behavior traits so our adopters can work on any training the dog may need. IDGSR starts the rehabilitation and training with these wonderful kids and our adopters are part of the team of folks who help to ensure these kids will never suffer another day of hardship in their lives again. IDGSR will not take Aggressive Dogs into the Rescue.
If you have ever loved a German Shepherd then you will know where our hearts are to save these dogs from a certain death. It is our goal to save more but we need wonderful qualified families who want to save a life and welcome a new family member. We continue the work with our adopters even after adoption, we help with training and advice and counsel. IDGSR's staff look forward to hearing from you. Help us to find your new devoted and loyal best friend.

Our Adoption Process:

see our website @ http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/idgsr.html
our adoption fees are based on age of the dog, from $150-$300. All dogs travel north on a paid Professional USDA transporter. There is a $125 transport + $25 for the Veterinarian Health check that all dogs are required to have before their trip to their new families.
All dogs are fully vetted before making their trip, have vaccinations, spayed or neutered and microchipped.
All of our dogs are fostered in East Tennessee and transports leave out weekly.

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.
