Welcome to Second Chance German Shepherd Rescue

Foster Homes Needed

The number of lives we can save is directly related to the number of volunteers and foster homes we have available. The more we have, the more lives we can save. Not sure? More Information. Here's what current fosters say about the joys of fostering German Shepherd Rescues:

"We started fostering in March of 2020, and it has been the best experience for our family. We are a family of three and have a very sweet 7 year old female German Shepard rescue named Maisey. We have had the pleasure of fostering 7 dogs over this period. The dogs we get to host are always so curious and showing them how to navigate through a normal household is fun and heartwarming. We have fallen in love with each and every single one. We often get asked “but how do you let them go?”. This is the hard part, but when you help them find their “forever home” and you see the excitement of the people getting their new dog, it makes it worth it. We know that they are going to be loved and well taken care of, and at that point we let go of our feelings and gear up for the next one."
