- About Us
SCGSR is dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, providing spay/neuter and veterinary care, and re-homing German Shepherds and other pets in Southern California. A 501(c)(3)nonprofit, we are funded through tax-deductible donations from adopters and individuals like you who care about the fate of these neglected companion animals. SCGSR specializes in helping ill and unadoptable abandoned pets regain their health and placing them into caring, loving forever homes. Together, we can envision a day when companion animals will no longer face inhumane treatment, abandonment or perish in shelters.
You can order now through our store and calendars will begin to ship the first week of December.
Thanks to a group of generous supporters, SCGSR has FREE Fur Code pet tags for our adopters! Anyone who adopted from us who would like a high tech pet tag that has an online profile, a code readable with a smart phone on one side and link to profile on the other - please email us today and we'll send you one! firstname.lastname@example.org. *Supplies are limited so email us now! Send your name, adopted dog's name and address to mail the Fur Code to!

We have had many happy tails - many more happy tails than heartbreaks. But Samantha's story is special, and is one that will touch every heart. Found by a kind rescuer on the streets of Tijuana, Samantha came to SCGSR for help. Afraid to even be touched, we were worried about Samantha's outcome. You can watch a video of Samantha when she first arrived at SCGSR here.
Placed in a foster home with our volunteer Jenny and her dog Eli, Samantha began to come out of her shell. She has now been adopted by Shannon and her husband, where she is continuing to thrive, and while her family mends Samantha's heart, she is mending theirs. It is a glorious rescue story. If Samantha's story touches your heart, please consider donating to our year end fundraiser and help make more miracles. Donate now.
