Who We Are

Tier Haven Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit animal rescue agency based in Louisville, KY that specializes in German Shepherds and similar working breeds. Tier Haven realizes that many German Shepherd Dogs (GSDs) find themselves in shelters due to a lack of training and understanding of the breed. Tier Haven is a no-kill rescue which limits the number of dogs we can care for at any given time – for this reason Tier Haven focuses on taking dogs from shelters that are in direct risk of euthanasia and has a separate policy for owner surrenders.

Surrender Policy

Tier Haven accepts owner surrenders on a conditional basis due to the large number of dogs in kill shelters. If you have a dog you would like to surrender you must email pictures and the reason for surrendering to Tierhavenrescue@aol.com. Tier Haven does charge a fee for surrendering a dog; $80 for a fully vetted dog (vaccinations, alter, heartworm test) when vet records are provided and $150 for un-vetted dogs.

The Adoption Process

Tier Haven does require an adoption application to be completed and approved prior to meeting or adopting a dog. The application is completed via email and interested adopters can email Tierhavenrescue@aol.com for an application. After your application is processed you will be contacted by a volunteer to discuss potential dogs and arrange a meet and greet. Tier Haven does rely on foster homes rather than a central kennel facility; therefore meet and greets are often held at public locations and are scheduled at the discretion of the foster home.

Adoption Fee

Tier Haven charges an adoption fee of $250 for each dog. This includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, heart-worm test, micro-chip, and deworming.
