About Redemption Rescue
About Our Rescue Group...
Redemption Rescue is a Faith based rescue that was established in 2016 to expand the rescue efforts started in 2012 to honor a very special life changing GSD named Merlin, Our rescue is dedicated to save German Shepherd Dogs from high kill shelters, abuse, neglect and abandonment and is committed to rescue, rehab and rehome this noblest of breeds.
Based in Fairfield CT, a bouquet rescue that is 100% volunteer organization, committed to rescuing displaced, neglected or unwanted GSD from death-row at high-kill shelters and unfit homes across the country: rehabilitating them with proper medical care, nutritional, behavioral and socialization, to enable them to thrive and rehome them into responsible, safe and caring homes, where they’ll be loved family members.
What makes us unique is that we often take requests for GSDs with specific traits and characteristics and scour the country looking for the perfect dogs to match our adopters wishes. The sad fact is with 10,000s of GSDs needing rescue on a daily basis, it is possible to find your dream dog waiting to be rescued in a shelter .

Our Adoption Process...
If you are interested in a Redemption Rescue dog or having us find a dog for you, please contact us so that we can conduct an initial phone interview. During this time we will arrange to have you submit an application!
Once you have been provided an application to submit, please be sure to be as detailed as possible, and include all requested information to prevent delays in processing your application (including an email address that you check often). You will receive a confirmation email as soon as your application has been received. If you have not received this confirmation within 48 hours, please check your junk mail and contact our Adoptions Coordinator at email@example.com to confirm receipt of application.
We will perform landlord, veterinarian, and reference checks. This part of the process can take 5-7 days to complete. If we have any trouble contacting your references, we will reach out to you.
If all goes well in step 2, you will be pre-approved to adopt and move on to our placement team! Our placement team is dedicated to helping you meet the perfect dog. That may be the dog you see being promoted or it may be another dog that we feel may be a better fit for you and your family and lifestyle situation. The dog you are initially matched up with you may be one of our available dogs, or a dog that may be in a partner rescue that we work with, (and we will work on your behalf to get the dog for you from the rescue) or a dog that we will go out and find specifically for you. This is a unique service that we offer and have been very successful at achieving because we rescue dogs from all over the country and we really know our dogs given that we have all dogs evaluated prior to rescuing them.
Working together with the prospective adopter, when we have collectively decided to that you are qualified to adopt one of the dogs, we will complete a home visit (which also may be conducted at the time of the meet and greet, which will take place at most times the adopter’s home). An experienced volunteer will come to your home and meet with you and your family, we require all family members and animals living in the household to be present. We complete a check of the home, a property and fence check, as well as discuss GSD education. In some situations, we may require a home visit before pre-approval, however this is only for certain cases.
If you are selected to have a home visit prior to meeting, after your home visit is complete a decision will be made on your adoption status. If you are approved to adopt and the home check is to be performed at the time you will be meeting the dog you have worked with placement to select!
A detailed contract will be provided to the adopter and must be completed prior to bringing the dog into your family. The fee for the dog is actually is a contribution to repay just some of the expenses associated with the dog and is discussed specifically and dependent upon each individual dog.
