Golden State German Shepherd Rescue

is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Central Valley, and Sacramento.

Our mission to find loving new homes for German Shepherd Dogs in need of a second chance and also to educate the public about this highly intelligent and versatile breed.

Most of the dogs in our program come from animal shelters in Northern California where they have run out of time.

Please consider joining us as a volunteer, donor, or in any other manner in which you feel you can help. Your participation will be greatly appreciated by us, but – more importantly – by the dogs waiting for our help.
