SGSR Southeast German Shepherd Rescue was founded in 2010 to save German Shepherd Dogs from abuse, abandonment, and high kill shelters. SGSR is a non-profit organization that wouldn’t exist without the compassion and dedication of volunteers determined to help Rescue, Rehab, and Rehome this noble breed. SGSR receives all funding through private donations and adoption fees. *We are a fully compliant 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
Our Rescue, Rehab, Rehome Mission
SGSR's mission is to Rescue displaced, neglected, or unwanted GSDs; Rehab them with proper medical care, nourishment, and socialization; and Rehome them into caring and responsible forever homes where they are able to thrive as alert, loving, and loyal family members.
It takes a village!
…and we couldn’t do the amazing work we do without our village of dedicated volunteers, fosters, transporters, coordinators, board members, adopters AND fans! Join our village by following us on www.facebook.com/southeastgsdrescue. We frequently post requests for help with transport, events, fostering, or donations of specific items of desperate need. Share our photos and updates to help us find homes for our amazing dogs. We love our village!
Our dogs are available for adoption once they have been fully rehabilitated and medically cleared. Potential adopters complete an application on our website and pay a $20 application fee. The approval process includes a vet reference check, phone interview and home visit. Our adoption fee is $250 and includes spay/neuter, standard vaccines, heartworm test (and treatment if necessary) and registered microchip.
Our Dogs & Programs
Some dogs come into SGSR foster homes nearly ready for adoption - others do not. These programs help those that wouldn’t have a chance without our amazing donors: Chance Medical Fund Our Chance Medical fund helps GSDs with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. It supports the medical care needed to get each dog back to a healthy, happy state before we make them available for adoption.
Phoenix Dog Program
Our Phoenix Dog Program is committed to helping German Shepherd Dogs with birth defects, amputations, developmental problems, genetic disorders and degenerative disorders find the lives and forever homes that every dog deserves.
