Pawsitive Endings!


We love getting updates from our adopters!  We are proud to share another "PAWSITIVE ENDINGS"  NWGSR has been privileged to be a part of.

From awesome German Shepherd mom Heidi: 

"When I pulled Chief from the Tacoma Humane Society he was scared, anxious and withdrawn. He had been on the streets and no one claimed him. That's when Northwest German Shepherd Rescue got involved.

I fostered and then adopted him. Now Chief is a lazy and well-loved boy who adores his family. He loves to cuddle and despite his 115 lbs thinks he is a lap dog! He hogs the bed and derives great joy from licking my face! He is very kind to children, adults and other animals.

I often ask myself who rescued whom?"


Northwest German Shepherd Rescue  is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization run solely on adoption fees and donations. The rescue serves German Shepherds in need. Our network of devoted foster families provides a safe haven to German Shepherds as they make their way to quality, loving homes of their own. All adoption fees are used to cover spay/neuter procedures, shots, worming, microchips, emergency boarding, food, medications, and other surgeries as needed for adoptable dogs.

Your donation will go directly to providing care for a German Shepherd in need. A donation of just $10 will cover one night of emergency boarding. $25 can provide food and supplies for one foster dog for two weeks. And there are many additional ways your generous donation can help: 
$15   - Pays for one microchip
$25   - A trip to the groomer to help a battered rescue dog show its best side to potential adopters
$100 - Vaccines to prevent rabies, distemper, and parvo for one dog
$200 - Nutritious dog food to feed 50 dogs for 2 weeks
$500 - Spay or neuter surgeries for four dogs
