Fostering A Dog
Our greatest need is FOSTER HOMES!! This is very crucial for our rescue, yet it is one of the hardest goals to achieve. One of our many goals is to be able to immediately place all the dogs that come to us into adequate foster care. This way each German Shepherd Dog can have the ability to be in a home environment and learn necessary house manners, training, etc.
We are not a shelter and do not use shelter facilities. All of our dogs available for adoption are currently living in foster homes, and are ready for adoption. Meet and greets for our dogs are done by appointment. Contact the representative listed to find out more about the dog you are interested in meeting.
