MOVING?...MAYBE...? FINANCIAL TROUBLE??

We are all aware that many families are currently facing the loss of their homes from foreclosure. While we understand what a devastating time this is, we are also are seeing countless people waiting until the very last minute to deal with the future of their pets.

PLEASE, if your living quarters are possibly in jeopardy, DON'T WAIT and DON'T ABANDON!! Start making arrangements NOW to place your pet with reputable rescue organizations for appropriate rehoming. In the case of German Shepherd Rescue, foster homes are scarce; finding a place to put your dog, no less PLACE YOUR DOG, takes TIME.

We have already received many owner surrender forms indicating that the move is going to take place in a matter of days, which is simply not sufficient time for us to evaluate the dog and locate a suitable foster home.

It's a widely held belief that finding your dog a home with friends, neighbors or relatives will be easy; why wouldn't everyone want my wonderful German Shepherd? It's not uncommon for us to hear that "we thought so and so was going to take him..." and even if you've found someone, while well intended, it might not be a well educated decision resulting in your dog being dropped at a shelter after you've gone.

We are here to HELP...but we do need time to assist you. So please allow for ample time and think of your GSD's future BEFORE your situation becomes desperate and you've run out of TIME. Should the need arise to possibly have to re-home your dog, please click for more info:

SURRENDERING YOUR GSD

**IMPORTANT WARNING!!**

Rescue folks are people with pets too so we face the same challenges when having to move as everyone else. Yet, we manage to find places that will allow our pet to stay with us;

YES, it takes a lot of effort and yes, Arizona is NOT the most pet friendly state BUT, in many cases it IS possible if you are willing to put in the time and dedication to search out pet friendly rentals. IT'S WORTH A TRY
