 Pawsitive Endings!

The rescue has another wonderful "Pawsitive Endings" story to share! Carrie Keating and family have adopted two dogs through Northwest German Shepherd Rescue, Cooper and Otto.

"Cooper was found and saved by the Mercer Island Police Department. Cooper had a broken knee, a broken spirit and was severely emaciated when we first met him. He came to us with a sad soul and we weren't sure if we would be able to rehabilitate him. With lots of patience and love on all of our parts, ...Cooper is now living life chubby, full of life, and physically recovered. He loves to go camping, play with toys, lounge in the swimming pool and eat! He is particularly attached to his human mama and is an outstanding "guard" dog. Over 3-years he has come to allow others to hand him treats and accepted a new younger brother into his life. He is the best foot warmer ever!
Otto survived a house fire at the young age of 4-weeks old. He was adopted at 8 weeks old into our family who instantly fell in love with him. He is the center of attention and is nicknamed "Prince Otto Shman". Otto is grossly spoiled. He loves his 14-year old human boy the best. Otto is the picture of beauty and loves all people, kitties and other dogs. He simply makes everyone smile and is a cherished member of our family."


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
