Sedona Shepherd Sanctuary

PO Box 834
Millburn, NJ 07041

Our Mission

We rescue adult and senior German Shepherds in New Jersey and surrounding areas. From time to time we will rescue mixed breeds or a younger Shepherd or working dog.

Adoption Policy

Sedona Shepherd Sanctuary has a streamlined process for applying to adopt a German Shepherd.  We do require a short application be completed that includes a veterinary reference, personal references and a home visit.

You must own your own home.

We do NOT require a fenced in yard or prior German Shepherd experience.  On occasion if we have a younger adult dog that would benefit from a more experienced handler we will note that appropriately on the dog's listing.


Our adoption fee is:


Ages under 3 years old: $450

Ages 3 to 8: $250

Over 8 years old: $150 (or waived)


For dogs older than 10 or with medical issues we will waive the adoption fee.  This is done on a case by case situation.


We do not adopt puppies.  If you are interested in adopting a dog under 4 years old there are a number of respectable German Shepherd Rescues in the New Jersey metropolitan area that can accommodate you, including Shepherd's Hope Rescue and Garden State German Shepherd Rescue. From time to time we may get younger Shepherds or similar working breed dogs.
