We screen all potential fosters and adopters with the goal of ensuring the best outcome for all. Adopting a GSD in our program requires the completion of an application. Personal & Vet references, along with Landlord reference if renting, will be checked. A home visit to ensure a safe & secure environment is also a requirement. GSDs are loyal, devoted and protective companions but not necessarily the best breed for everyone. We also strive to educate the public on the requirements of the breed. The dogs in our care have been through enough major life changes & emotional hardship. We are committed to making the best match possible for each of them to ensure the rest of their life is spent in a responsible, committed & loving environment.
Our Adoption fees are between $250 & $350.
DFW German Shepherd Rescue is a 100% volunteer group comprised of German Shepherd dog lovers who are determined to make a difference in the lives of homeless GSDs in the Dallas, Ft Worth, TX metroplex & surrounding areas. Although we are a newly formed rescue group, many of our members bring years of rescue experience caring for homeless dogs & placing them in deserving homes. Working with other German Shepherd rescues provides all of us with a larger network of fosters & transport volunteers.
All of our funding comes from private donations. People like you with an interest in making a difference, help us by donating whatever they can. All donations are used for bettering the lives of the GSDs in our program and provide us with the ability to bring more dogs, in danger in shelters, into our program. We are working toward our 501c3 non profit status. If you can help by donating, please read our section on Donating on this website.
Most of the GSDs brought into our program, are from area shelters. Many of these loyal, intelligent dogs have suffered neglect or abuse. Once in our program, they are vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. All dogs in our program will be or are spayed/neutered – no exceptions. Other special medical needs such as treatment for heartworms or mange, are also provided to DFW GSR dogs. Every effort is made to put these homeless dogs in our program on the road to good health & a happy forever home.
DFW GSR dogs live with foster families, opening their homes & hearts to provide a safe, healthy & loving environment for our dogs until just the right forever home is found for them. While living in their foster homes, the foster family learns the individual personality of the dog(s) in their care which is essential for matching the dogs & their prospective new home. The foster family works to help their foster dog to adapt to their new environment, learn manners & become socialized. Families willing to foster are the interim guardian angels in our program. If you are considering fostering, please read our section on fostering on this website.
