My story

Winnie was rescued from a high kill shelter in Texas and has been with a foster in Virginia since June. She is a gentle, sweet dog looking for a quiet home. She is fine with other dogs (big and little!), and is also good with the resident, dog-savvy cat.

She remains timid/cautious of anything new. Winnie is going to need a calm, quiet place WITHOUT children to settle in and learn to trust humans. 

other needs: a home without more than a few steps she’d have to navigate (scared of them)  

She is also HW+, but has started slow-kill treatment

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

The first step to adopt one of our dogs is to complete an adoption application. Once you have submitted your application, a volunteer with call your personal and veterinary references. Following references, SSR will send out a volunteer to conduct a home visit and meet any members of your household. We come to your home and further discuss the adoption process. The adoption application will let us know a little bit about you, your home, your lifestyle and what you are looking for in a companion. Anyone over the age of 18 is welcome to fill out our application to adopt one of our dogs. Your application will either be accepted or denied after the volunteer submits a home visit report. ADOPTION FEES There is a non-refundable application fee of $15. Our adoption fee is $300 for dogs aged 6 and under. Our adoption fee is $225 for dogs 7 and up.

Once we begin holding adoption events we will feature them on our website. At this time we do not have any upcoming events.

More about this rescue

Shenandoah Shepherd Rescue is an all-volunteer rescue focused primarily on the rescue of German Shepherds. We are based out of the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia, but expand our reach and work to save German Shepherds in heavily populated areas throughout the country. While our rescue is a new organization, our volunteers have been rescuing German Shepherds for many years. Our hope is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome every German Shepherd in need.
