FosterWe are a 100% volunteer-run organization.There are many different opportunities to volunteer!If you are able to offer your time, please fill out the Volunteer application form. We are ALWAYS in great need of qualified foster homes.We do not have a physical kennel, so we rely heavily on our foster homes and families. German Shepherds are a sensitive breed and do not do well in a shelter environment. Their best chance for success is with the structure, support and training a foster home can provide.Successful foster families have experience with GSDs and have the time, patience and love that these dogs so desperately need to get them ready for adoption.Please complete our Online Foster Home Application below if you are interested!It would mean one more life we can save!
