About Our Rescue Group:

Started in August 2011, German Shepherd Rescue Indy is a non-profit pure breed rescue whose mission is to save as many German Shepherds in kill-shelters as possible. The rescue focuses mainly on purebred shepherds however some mixes are also saved. I use foster homes in limited capacity due to having a centralized location for the shelter shepherds where they are evaluated and provided training and vet care.

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.
