A Palo Alto, CA 94306 rescue helping to find loving homes for dogs.
1 - 4 of 4 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
ShepHeroes primarily serves Northern California, concentrating in the geographic area from Monterey County north to the San Francisco Region and the greater Sacramento Area. As an all-volunteer foster based rescue, our reach is limited to the areas where our volunteers are concentrated.
We seek adopters with previous GSD or large breed experience for the best fit, and prefer to adopt within our local geographic region.
After submission, you'll receive an email indicating status of your application and information on assignment to an adoption counselor (AC).
After your interview, your AC will arrange for your home visit (HV). All household members & resident dogs should attend that meeting.
After your HV and once approved, you'll be able to meet potential matches. All household members & resident dogs should attend the meetings.
Once you've found your perfect match, you review and sign the adoption contract.
Our adoption fees are:
$400 for dogs under 12 months, $350 for dogs 1-6 y/o, and
$200 for dogs 7 y/o and older.
Once you've signed all the paperwork, you can take your new pup home!
ShepHeroes is a foster based non-profit animal rescue organization with a deeply experienced team of volunteers focused on carefully placing German Shepherd Dogs into loving homes that match the dog's temperament, activity level, and needs.
Our dogs receive veterinary care and reside in volunteer foster homes while waiting for loving homes, and are altered, vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption.
We focus our efforts on sound German Shepherd Dogs who are at risk due to abandonment, neglect, and abuse or significant change in circumstances. For the safety of our volunteers and adopters, we do not accept aggressive dogs into our program.
Our volunteers are heroes! Please join us with your time and talents to lend a hand to help our furry friends. Our needs range from virtual to hands-on tasks.
