We realize what a difficult decision it is to find a new
home for your German Shepherd Dog. We recognize that you care enough to give your dog a second chance for a good
life through our re-homing program. In order to ensure that we find a new home where it will
be loved and cared for, please answer the following questions as fully and as
honestly as possible. This allows us to better assess your dog's needs
during this transition period.
If accepted into our program, we have experienced people that
can work on training, medical or behavior problems. Please make us aware of any
issues, no matter how minor, so that we can place the dog in an appropriate foster
home where he can brush up the skills he he may need to be more adoptable. This helps
insure your dog gets the best possible forever home.
If your dog is accepted into our program you will be
required to sign over ownership of the dog to rescue. If space in foster
care is available, we will take possession immediately. Space
in foster homes, however, is always in short supply and we may request that
you continue to care for your dog until an
appropriate permanent home is found. In some cases we have to board the dogs while
we are waiting a foster or forever home. We will not release the dog to a shelter.
Thank you for ensuring that your dog has bright future
ahead of him instead of facing the end of his life alone, feeling abandoned
and unloved in a shelter.
