The Story

White Paws German Shepherd Rescue in Green Bay, Wisconsin has rescued over 1,000 dogs during our lifetime. 

In that time, we have rarely needed funds like we do now.   Because we take in young, old, and sick dogs with unknown medical conditions it's a gamble each time we bring in dogs.

This year alone we have many dogs who need complete hip replacements, heartworm treatment, hip dysplasia surgery, and mange treatments.  This doesnt even include standard vetting of vaccines, neuters/spays and microchipping.  All of our dogs are kept in the rescue until fully vetted and healthy.  We stand behind all of our dogs and will not adopt out an animal until its healthy. 

When we are called upon to help save a life we do so freely.  Owners who have never medically treated their dogs and dumped them at shelters, abandoned dogs when people move, and stray dogs whose histories are unknown to us are all brought into the rescue.  

Currently we are unable to help as many deserving dogs as we normally would due to heavy medical expenses. 

Please help us help our current dogs and allow us to keep saving more dogs. 

We need fund donations, and fosters to keep up with all the dogs we have taken in.

Please see it in your heart to help us, no donation is too small.  

As a 501c3 organization you may be able to deduct contributions from your taxes.  

We need to pay down our vet bills and continue to treat the dogs in our rescue.  it's a shame we can't help more, but it's a fact of life that if we don't have the funds, treatments have to wait and incoming dogs have to slow down.  

Thank you in advance for donating and sharing our fundraiser.

The past week has been a serious financial drain on our funds.

We have taken in an elderly former service dog with large growths on the abdomen, an extremely pregnant mama dog (we weren't told about the pregnancy until we were at the shelter to pull her). She needed to go to the ER vet today. Unbelievably she's been shot at least twice.

One of our dogs suddenly became lethargic with high fever who is now staying overnight at the Vet and even more dogs have arrived needing medical attention.

In addition to the emergencies we are still gathering funds to finish the total hip replacements for several dogs.

Although we do take in healthy dogs, it's the ones who need serious medical intervention that require us to reach out to fellow German Shepherd lovers.

We are constantly asking for fosters and funds.

People alert us to dogs all over the Country on a daily basis and we take as many as we can find fosters and funds for.

Today alone we spent over $3000 for the dogs we rescued.  

We work incredibly hard to make sure every dog adopted is healthy.  We work diligently every day taking care of the most unimaginable medical issues behind the scenes. 

Please share our medical fundraiser, please help us to continue helping the voiceless.  

Funds and fosters are in very short supply.  We can't operate without both.

It's been a while since we posted. We have several dogs now that require total hip replacements, more heartworm dogs and are taking in more dogs as often as we can.

We have incoming pups that came from a horrible situation dumped on the mean streets of a rural town, several dogs dumped down South that will be here soon and so many medical bills its staggering.

We save all kinds of dogs.  Adults, pups, teenagers.  Some have known issues, some are not known to us until they arrive.  Our luck hasn't been very good lately so we've taken even more with medical issues than anticipated.

We survive by donations from generous people such as yourself.  Donations can be tax deductible and will help us treat not only the ones currently in rescue, but the ones we have committed to. 

Please donate whatever you can to help us treat our dogs and save more.

Thank you
