This rescue's mission is to find loving permanent homes for abandoned and surrendered German Shepherd Dogs in Atlanta, GA and surrounding areas.
All their beautiful German Shepherd Dogs have been rescued from area shelters or surrendered by their former owners. They are currently living full time with foster families in the Atlanta area until permanent homes can be found.
All the dogs are examined by a veterinarian, up to date on their vaccinations, checked for heartworm disease and either spayed or neutered prior to adoption. All of these dogs have spent time with their foster families training to learn basic commands as well as leash walking. Almost all the dogs with the exception of young puppies are housebroken and crate trained.
For all the dogs, spending time in a foster home rather than a shelter allows for socialization of the dogs with new people and other dogs. This helps the rescuers to understand the dog's personality and temperament. Knowing and living with these foster dogs on a day to day basis allow the foster families to determine what type of home would be best suited for their individual foster dog.
The foster homes have no more than one to three foster dogs at one time, so the dogs do truly live "as part of a family". All the foster dogs also spend a minimum of two weeks, usually more, in their foster home so they can be observed for any undetected health or behavioral problems as well as get adjusted to "family life" again.
All who take part in the rescue are volunteers, and every dollar raised will go directly to help these beautiful dogs in need or a forever home. Every donation, no matter what the size, is deeply appreciated!
