Welcome to Southern California German Shepherd Rescue!

                                  

OUR MISSION

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.

Samantha -
A touching happy tail.

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.

CALEB IS BRAND NEW TO SCGSR AND NEEDS A FOSTER HOME!

Fostering a rescue dog while he or she waits for her forever home is the very best thing for one of our orphans.  Having a dog in a home helps us learn more about the dog to make a more perfect placement.  And dogs in homes are so much happier, relaxed and make an easier transition to their new forever home!  Find out more!
