About Our Rescue Group:

Founded in August 2011, the rescue has saved over 350 dogs from kill shelters from Indiana and surrounding states. The rescue began as a result of President and Founder, Amber Marks, volunteering at a kill shelter for over six years. Seeing the GSD (German Shepherd Dog) breed being needlessly killed due to poor shelter behavior, she began her personal quest to save as many adoptable shepherds as possible.

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.
