These are all purebred German Shepherd Dogs...why do they all look so different?

Because they are! There is a tremendous degree of variation within this breed, which is why we go to such lengths to ensure that the dog in which you are interested is, indeed, the right dog for you, your household and your current lifestyle. GSDs vary in structure, type and temperament, contingent upon the lines from which they were bred, coupled with their level of training and socialization. While you may prefer a certain "look," take care to make temperament, drive levels and the dog's history, the most important factors in choosing the right companion...we do.

MOVING?...MAYBE...? FINANCIAL TROUBLE??

FINDING YOUR GERMAN SHEPHERD A NEW HOME
No fee is charged to a surrendering owner; however, a donation along with a surrendered dog is VERY much appreciated in helping to defray the costs of finding & placing your dog in their forever home. All owners are required to sign an Owner Surrender form prior to placement.

ADOPTION FEES
Adoption fees vary with each dog and typically range from $150.00 to $395.00. They are set, taking into account the dog's age, training level, medical condition(s) (if any) and other factors. Some dogs require that hundreds of dollars and many weeks, even months, be spent before they are ready for adoption; others do not. Adoption fees are used, not only to rescue and place the dog you are personally adopting, but to aid in the future rescue and rehabilitation of other deserving dogs. Adoption fees are necessary; without fees our rescue efforts would quickly come to an end.

Our greatest expenses include the cost of: gas, microchips, vet visits & surgery, blood work and lab fees, medications, vaccinations, dog food, collars, leashes, crates & toys, websites, domain names and ISPs, and sometimes we even have to pay adoption fees to rescue a dog. Office expenses add up as well.

Rescue is an expensive undertaking, both financially and emotionally, and is motivated solely by our passion for German Shepherd Dogs.

We are volunteers. We volunteer our time (countless hours every day), and we are by no means wealthy. We do not make a profit and seldom break even. Adoption fees come in and go right back out to the next rescued dog.

WHO WE ARE
We are a small group of individuals dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming German Shepherd Dogs of all colors into their forever homes. First and foremost, we are all about the DOG. We do not place a dog in a home just because we need to make space for a new rescue. We put the dog's best interest at heart at all times and will not place a dog in a home that is not suitable.
