About Napa Valley German Shepherd Rescue

Our president from Napa has been saving, training and advocating for German Shepherds since 2010.

With the recent passing of measure A and the increasing amount of Shepherds ending up in our local shelter we saw the need for a community based German Shepherd Rescue.

We are a foster based rescue, this means each dog we rescue lives in our home so we can get to know them.

We believe having a foster based organization allows us to assess needs,canine temperament and most importantly what environment is key for success. We believe in Quality vs Quantity.

We have started sponsoring free obedience classes to help both the human and the canine communicate more effectively These classes are held in the summer months.

Napa Valley German Shepherd Rescue's adopted pets

Adopt a Pet is the easiest way for you to search for a new pet in Napa, CA.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
