Mission Statement

Dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, providing spay/neuter and veterinary care, and re-homing German shepherds and other pets in Southern California. A 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we are funded through tax-deductible donations from adopters and individuals like you who care about the fate of these magnificent companions. SCGSR takes pride in helping ill and unadoptable abandoned pets regain their health and placing them into caring, loving forever homes. Together, we can envision a day when companion animals will no longer face inhumane treatment, abandonment or perish in shelters.


SCGSR is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. Your contributions to help SCGSR save dogs are tax deductible. SCGSR receives no public subsidies and is funded solely through donations made by supporters like you. Every dollar donated goes directly to help rescue dogs. Our goal is to best help our rescues be healthy and happy and adopted into great forever homes. Visit our available dogs today and find your new best friend. You can help SCGSR continue its mission to rescue, rehabilitate and place dogs into loving homes by making a tax deductible donation today!

Principals of SCGSR have many years of experience with German shepherds and with rescue, and count among their accomplishments a high rate of successful placement of dogs in adoptive homes.

SCGSR prides itself in the rehabilitation of ill and unadoptable dogs, that many times other organizations are unwilling or unable to help, ultimately resulting in their adoption into loving homes

I came to volunteer for SCGSR in 2008 shortly after adopting our first dog Jet from the rescue. My wife and I have fostered nearly the entire time since joining up (I lost count). In addition to fostering, I have been involved with adoption events, special events and adoption meet-ups. I currently coordinate dog walking for our boarded dogs. I also love to take pictures and videos of our dogs. When necessary, I transport dogs as well. The strength of our organization is our wonderful volunteers. For every “opportunity” that we face, we always seem to have a volunteer resource to help out. We have all seen traumatic situations blossom into well-behaved, beautiful dogs. I particularity am proud of helping transform scared and unwanted dogs into adoptable pets. There are a lot of “boots on the ground” that make this happen. The willingness to help German Shepherds (and other breeds) is what SCGSR is all about!

I have been a volunteer with SCGSR for about 2 years. I started out as just a foster parent, but have fallen in love with our rescues, our mission, and organization and our other volunteers. I've gone on to be a foster parent to about 8 dogs, helped with special events and fundraising, walked dogs on weekends, cat-tested our rescues for home placements, worked adoption events, helped with online marketing and have run a photo contest and a few auctions! I find the volunteer work I've done with SCGSR to be very rewarding and I appreciate that with a "can do attitude" and willingness to roll up your sleeves, that any volunteer support one is willing to give is welcomed and appreciated by the organization. In other words, if you have a vision and ability to execute, you can make it happen here!
