Founded in 1996, German Shepherd Rescue, Inc is a small group of volunteers with a common goal: to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home German Shepherd Dogs. Dogs who, through no fault of their own, are confronted with the loss of their home and family. Many of these animals also face death or an uncertain future in high volume animal sheltering facilities.
Help us save the life of a German Shepherd. If you are interested in adopting one of our German Shepherds please fill out the online application.
The care that we provide to our rescue dogs includes spaying/neutering, vaccinations, heart worm testing, treatment and prevention, and deworming. All dogs are micro-chipped. Those that have an illness, infection, or injury receive needed veterinary treatment. It is not unusual for us to have in our safekeeping an older dog, or one in need of extra care. Please contact us if you are able to provide a home for one of our special needs dogs.
We also work with professional trainers to provide our rescue friends and their adopters with the socialization and skills that are often needed for a successful transition to their new forever home.
German Shepherd Rescue, Inc is located in the suburbs of Chicago. We are always in need of dedicated volunteers who share our purpose. If you are interested in volunteering please contact us.
Thank you for your interest.
