know of breed rescue?

cheryl_pAugust 31, 2009

Can anyone steer me to a GSD rescue group that I can contact? I've gotten myself into a "fix". The neighbor of a friend of a friend (I know!) has a one-year-old shepard chained in the of those neglect stories. I am willing to even purchase the dog in order to get it out of there but I DON'T have the set up (cats, no space, etc) for an unruly albeit beautiful, smart LARGE dog. One of the general rescues here is full and keeps saying I should foster it. Well, I can't. Other people have criticized me for even getting involved but how could I not?! The Humane Soc. has visited the dog twice now or so I'm told. Any suggestions?

cheryl, where do you live? there are any number of breed-specific rescues that might take this dog, if they are within a reasonable distance.

Go to Google. Type in "German Shepherd Dog Rescue" and the name of the closest large city.

1. Good for you for getting involved and even being willing to put out funds for this dog.
2. Go drop the dog off at the ASPCA - they are a no kill shelter and will should take the dog.
3. Good luck

Contact the SPCA. I had occasion to call a few years back regarding a "German Shepard Puppy Mill" where all the dogs were neglected. The SPCA Officer that responded was a retired Police Officer! The people involved can never own an animal again. By contacting the SPCA you are more apt to ensure a proper investigation/follow-up thereby protecting any future animals these people may get. You can remain anonymous if you wish.

I applaud you for getting involved. We are their voice when they do need help.

The link below lists three rescue groups for German Shepherd dogs in Michigan, though only the first two links work for me:
