A huge thank you to the generous donor who recently made a substantial contribution to GSDRGA in honor of TUCKER, one of our alumni, to cover the medical costs of our rescued dogs! Your generosity will enable us to rescue more dogs, thereby making a meaningful difference in the lives of the dogs and their adopters. Your support is greatly appreciated!
Eko surgery was a success! He is recovering nicely at his foster home. He is on restricted activity for now but continue to send positive vibes his way. With all of our love and support he will be fine.
Thanks to everyone that supported and continue to support him. A special thank you to Grace Kelley Cash for her generous donation.
Please keep those donations coming ... the estimated cost of Eko’s surgery is $3500-$4000.
For those of you who have been following the progress of the puppies and their sire, Milo...
No longer hairless, emaciated, and flea-covered, Milo is now being cared for by a wonderful, loving couple in Savannah. He is currently undergoing heartworm treatment, but has recovered from his other illnesses. Not only is he is loving his cushy new life, he also looks better. Not as handsome as he will be in another few months, but much improved! A quick study too: he took to his bed, toys, and doggy door with relish!
Special thanks to those who have donated to help defray the medical costs incurred by Milo and his five puppies: Chris Knight, Selin, Shadow, and Buddy, and in loving memory of Marley.
About Our Rescue
Our mission is to find loving permanent homes for abandoned and surrendered German Shepherd Dogs in Atlanta and surrounding areas. All of our 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 of our dogs are examined by a veterinarian, up to date on their vaccinations, checked for heartworm disease and treated if needed, 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 our dogs. with the exception of young puppies, are housebroken and crate trained.
Spending time in a foster home rather than a shelter allows for socialization of the dogs with new people and other dogs, which helps us to understand the dog's personality and temperament. Knowing and living with our foster dogs on a day to day basis allows our foster families to determine what type of home would be best-suited for their individual foster dog.
Our foster homes have no more than one to three foster dogs at one time, so our dogs do truly live "as part of a family". All our 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.
A $350 adoption donation is requested for adult dogs; although we rarely have puppies for adoption, their adoption fee is higher. These monies are used to offset the costs of providing veterinary care and sterilization for our rescued dogs.
