Bay Area German Shepherd Rescue

Exciting news.  We are getting together with our friends at the awesome rescue The Tiny Pitbull and the award winning Petaluma Animal Services to have a fantastic and fun monthly rescue event.  Please join us!


What an event!  Two adoptions and almost 40 volunteers to celebrate a great year.  Rescue saves lives, and is fun.

Don't miss out!  On February 28th 2015 we are having an amazing event at San Francisco's legendary Cliff House restaurant.

If you went out tonight for a 3 course dinner with wine and champagne at the Cliff House, you’d have little change from $100. You wouldn’t have live music, entertainers and more.

You’ll be able to do exactly this and know that your entire ticket price will go to help our dogs! Better still, you’ll receive a letter from us enabling you to claim a part of your ticket price as a charitable donation!

This is what we call a win, win. Great for the dogs and wonderful for you. Don’t wait - as tickets are selling fast and we have a limited amount.

See you there for an evening of fine dining, friends and doing something wonderful.

Today in Santa Rosa the team met hundreds of people and had a fun time.

Our dogs are super smart and learn very quickly with the right direction.  We are often asked to recommend a dog trainer by people who adopt their new dog.  Our belief is that trainer works with you to help you train your dog. Over the coming days and weeks we will be creating a list with contacts.  We will only list trainers that our members have personally worked with and recommend.

Based in Novato, they offer an extraordinary range of training and behavior classes at very affordable prices. Many of our volunteers have undertaken their dog training classes with their personal dogs.  We are huge fans of Dawn and her entire team. See them on line here and call them on (415) 883-4621


Lisa Caper runs DogOvation covering Marin County.  Several of our volunteers have worked with her and they give great reports.  Like all the best trainers her focus is more on training the owner to train the dog.  You can read all about Lisa's philosophy on her website here and phone her at : (415) 299-1158
