ORGANIZATION: THULANI SENIOR GERMAN SHEPHERD RESCUE INC

Thulani Senior German Shepherd Rescue (TSGSR) is an all volunteer organization that specializes in saving very old and/or terminally-ill German Shepherd Dogs that still have some quality life left to them, even if it is only a short time.

Fostering a Thulani dog is like fostering any animal in a rescue program. But for Thulani, it perhaps is more important because each dog we can put in a foster home instantly frees up a space for us to bring in another Thulani dog. And there are so many of them waiting for our help.

Foster homes are critical to the successful operation of Thulani Senior German Shepherd Rescue. In your home, the dog is allowed to 'decompress’ from the very stressful experience of being abandoned, usually from a long term home, and from spending time in an animal shelter. You will help teach them basic house manners, how to interact appropriately with people and other animals, and give lots of TLC.

Our fosters provide critical information about the dog’s personality, level of training, reaction to new situations, temperament, eating habits, and a host of information important for selecting the proper forever home for the dog. This input helps us to identify the best possible adoptive home, and adoption would be difficult without it.

We pay all the expenses, and the foster provides the warmth and love. And the dogs are so appreciative!

Mission Statement

The Thulani Senior German Shepherd Rescue mission is to rescue and save senior or terminally ill German Shepherd Dogs from life-threatening situations and to find homes in which they can live out their natural lives in love and comfort. A medical condition is not a deciding factor, only quality of life remaining. We commit to providing medical coverage for life, even after adoption.

Description

TSGSR is a group of volunteers whose mission is rescuing homeless senior German Shepherd Dogs (GSDs) and finding them new "forever" adoptive homes. Since the TSGSR organization is 100% staffed by volunteers we rely on people joining our team and helping us save dogs.

TSGSR provides hospice care and sanctuary for German Shepherd Dogs with limited life expectancy. TSGSR team members were finding German Shepherd dogs in shelters that were wonderful dogs, but because of terminal medical conditions or extreme age, were not dogs that could successfully be adopted out to the public as part of a regular adoption program. Yet these wonderful dogs have some quality life left for them, even though it might be short. TSGSR realized that, if they turned their backs on these dogs, they very likely would die alone and afraid in the shelter almost immediately.

The principle team members at TSGSR have been rescuing and re-homing German Shepherd Dogs (GSDs) of ALL AGES for over 15 years. We are a California non-profit Animal Welfare Organization (AWO) and we are an all-volunteer organization which allows all donations and funding to go completely to the betterment of rescued GSDs. Because rescuing senior GSDs or ones with a terminal illness requires a dedicated focus TSGSR was founded for this special purpose.
