Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Our mission is to find loving, permanent homes for abandoned and surrendered German Shepherd Dogs in Missouri and surrounding areas. We support the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of purebred German Shepherd Dogs and high-content GSD mixes. Dogs of all ages come into our program from shelters, through referral by other rescues, and through owner surrenders.
Serendipity German Shepherd Dog Rescue (SGSDR) is a state-licensed, non-profit rescue organization based in Missouri. Founded in May 2004, our rescue is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) charitable corporation.
We are an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue. Our rescue operations are 100% powered by the devotion, talents, and experience of volunteers committed to making a difference.
We do not operate a shelter, nor do we have a physical facility. Our program dogs live with our volunteer foster families, who care for them in their own homes until adoption.
Our rescue operations are funded through donations, private sponsors, and recurring and one-time fundraising events. Our IRS charitable corporation status means that donations to SGSDR are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed under current tax laws.
ORGANIZATION AND BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The Board of Directors provides mission-based leadership and strategic governance to support the work of SGSDR. The board serves as both a non-profit governance body and as a volunteer working board supporting the operations of the rescue.
