Urgent: Foster homes needed!!
All dogs brought into our Rescue are kept in "foster homes". Foser homes are homes just like yours, people who love animals and want to make a difference in the life of a GSD in need. Foster homes are the backbone of our organization, and we are always looking for more! ETGSDR will pay for medical costs incurred by the foster dogs, including HW prevention.
The foster parent is the most important person involved in the adoption process, as the foster parent determines what type of home will be suitable for the dog. Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a foster and saving the life of a German Shepherd in need!
Who We Are
East Texas German Shepherd Rescue is a non-profit, all volunteer corporation serving the East Texas area. ETGSR works with a number of area Animal Shelters to save as many adoptable GSD's from euthanasia as possible.
Our goal is to take these dogs from the Shelter to permanent homes. We are only able to do this through the hard work of volunteers and donations from the public.
Adopting a friend
The first step in the "Adoption Process" is to determine if your lifestyle and home is suitable for a German Shepherd Dog. German Shepherd's are large dogs who need attention and training in order to be the perfect companion you desire. Before you proceed with the application please take the time to answer a few questions:
Do I have the income to feed and provide routine and emergency medical care for this dog?
Do I have the time required to train the dog and give it the attention it deserves?
Do I understand that the dog will need an adjustment period (typically one month), when it enters my home?
Does everyone in my home want a German Shepherd?
