defray our veterinary expenses & give these dogs the TLC they
deserve. No amount is too small.
Homes - the backbone of our organization
Foster homes are
the most important part of Rescue. We can only save as many dogs as we have
foster homes. A foster parent provides a safe and loving environment for
dogs until they are adopted. The foster home helps the dog learn basic
family skills if needed so they can be set up for success when they find
their forever home.
Louisiana German Shepherd Rescue

bred German Shepherd Dogs from abuse, neglect and abandonment. Our
Mission is to rescue as many GSDs as possible from high-kill
shelters, most of whom would be euthanized without our help. Our
efforts are focused on helping these GSDs who, through no fault of
their own, find themselves in need and without families to love.

Message From Our
"The German Shepherd Dog has always been my favorite
breed. Lady, my first German Shepherd, was my best friend and guardian as a
toddler. Even though I don't remember much about her, she has had a lasting
effect on my desire to save this breed from the tragedy of people not
knowing how to care for them or train them properly.
Shepherds are wonderful family pets, very committed to their home
and family. They are smart. They are an active breed,
preferring to be kept mentally and physically stimulated. This
is why they have so many jobs all over the world and are the breed
preferred by many Police Departments, Military Units, Search and
Rescue, Narcotic and Bomb Detection Units, and Guide Dog
of the GSDs we rescue from shelters have not been taken care of
emotionally or physically but the most common reason that they have
ended up in shelters is that their people simply didn't care
enough; Did not care enough to properly ensure their safety
with fencing, to ensure that they had ID tags or were micro chipped
in case they got lost, Did not care enough to protect them from
preventable illness, Did not care enough to provide the structure
and training to avoid behavioral problems, Did not care enough to
simply bring them in the house, talk to them occasionally and tell
them that they were loved.
wonderful dogs need TLC. Their desire is to be part of your family,
not thrown out in the yard and left alone. He or she is your
new best friend, not to be abandoned or neglected, but to be loved
and treasured. We at North Louisiana German Shepherd Rescue
are here to help you form that special bond with your new family
member so that soon you will be telling others where you found the
best dog you've ever had."
Founder, North Louisiana German Shepherd Rescue
Let us help you find
the best dog you've ever had.
