We are a 501(c)3 Organization

Special Announcement

In the last 3 years, with your help NWGSR has adopted out over 50 beautiful German Shepherds and their pups.  Our balance sheet is in the black, and the rescue is doing well. 

Over the holidays and through the winter, our volunteers are taking some well-deserved time off.  We will still network dogs and do what we can in a limited capacity.   We look forward to returning in Spring 2017 re-energized and hope to again start taking in dogs at that time. 

Thank you for all your years of dedication and support.  



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
