Dutchess's Story...
Duchess is still available as of October 15th. Please ask at the front desk to see Duchess and her puppies, as they are not on the main adoption floor!

Duchess is a 2 year old female, black German Shepherd dog who was brought to our shelter on September 16th after being found as a stray on someone's property. Duchess was heavily pregnant when she showed up, so the property owners took care of her until she had her four pups. Unable to care for five dogs who weren't theirs, the property owners brought the family to us. Duchess has been a wonderful, loving mother to her babies, and it's clear they adore her. She has allowed us to handle the brood as we need to without showing the least bit of aggression towards us. The entire family received a much needed bath today, and they all look and smell wonderful now! Duchess has a huge, lovable personality of her own, and has given her puppies a wonderful start in life. They appear to be mixed with Lab, but Duchess is purebred. She would be best suited to a home with German Shepherd experience, and she will require a good bit of exercise. Dutchess should also be signed up for basic obedience class after she is adopted. You may ask at the front desk for more information about that.

  • $50 adoption fee. Duchess will need to be spayed at her new owner's expense. $25 of the adoption fee would apply toward the neutering charges.

    We welcome adoptions from people living out of the area or out of the state of Virginia. The application process is completed in person at the shelter.

    Why Adoption is a Great Option

    Dutchess, a Staunton German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog for sale in Staunton, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Staunton.

    1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Staunton already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
    2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Staunton breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
    3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Staunton paves the way for another one to be saved.
