Bay Area German Shepherd Rescue

Rehome My Dog

You have probably arrived at this page with some trepidation.  You’re not alone!

Economic situations can change, health may decline and it can become impossible to provide care for your dog. By working with an experienced GSD rescue team who love German Shepherds, you’re doing the right thing.

Many of the dogs on our site come from owners.  We find them great homes. We know these questions could be awkward for you and we are here to help. Our goal is simple. We want your dog to have a wonderful next chapter. Just the same as you.

How do I rehome my dog?

1) Send us the best recent photos of your dog to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

2) Complete the form below AFTER you have sent the photos

3) When we receive your photos we will contact you to discuss your dog and if we agree your dog could be right for our Rescue program.

4) Then you and your dog will meet with one of our evaluators.

5) If that goes well we will help your dog get adopted into a loving and experienced furever home.

You will keep your dog at your home and we will work with you to find a loving new family for your dog's future.
