Welcome to Southern California German Shepherd Rescue

SCGSR is a 501(c)3 Charity, EIN: 20-5500458 – Donate with Confidence.

Founded in August 2006, SCGSR consists of a dedicated team of volunteers. SCGSR rescues, rehabilitates, provides spay/neuter and veterinary care, and re-homes pets in Southern California. SCGSR has rescued and placed over 900 animals. Our rescues include German Shepherds, Great Danes, Poodles, many mixed breeds, cats and kittens, a chicken, and even a boa constrictor.

SCGSR specializes in helping ill and unadoptable abandoned pets regain their health and placing them in caring, loving forever homes. Together, we can envision a day when companion animals will no longer face inhumane treatment, abandonment or perish in shelters. Visit just some of our more remarkable rescues here.
