Many of our dogs come to use as an owner surrender and others from shelters that cannot adopt a dog out through their process.  FRGSR is able to provide a German Shepherd (GSD) or GSD mix with the care and assistance.  When FRGSR takes a dog we do not give up on the dog., we put the resources necessary to place the dog in a loving home.  Unfortunately, we do not have enough foster homes to meet the requests for placement.  

FRGSR is committed to a long term capital plan to acquire a proper structure to accommodate our foster care needs. We have rescued dogs not just because they were easily adoptable, but because the dog was in need and we were able to help, even those needing expensive vet care. 

This past year we have experienced an increased need for mothers and puppies. Expectant mothers and litters are beautiful but need additional resources, thus putting a strain on the foster families.


"Our GSD came from FRGSR...she was abused and taken from her owner. FRGSR worked with her to regain her trust. We would never have guessed our GSD had issues before her adoption into our family."

Background Statement

Volunteer and foster home based rescue. FRGSR began when two breeders decided to help the German Shepherds (GSDs) that are dumped at shelters for lack of training and understanding of the breed. They started small and filed for nonprofit status adding foster homes, board members, volunteers and vets that were willing to work with the GSDs.
