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 founded in 2006, we are funded through tax-deductible donations from adopters and individuals like you who care about the fate of these magnificent companion animals. SCGSR specializes in helping ill and injured or 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. We are a volunteer-based group who works with foster homes - we do not have a location. Please review our about adoptions page for more information.
