Bay Area German Shepherd Rescue

On Saturday Echo found her furever home.  She's a very lucky girl!

Thunder is a very lucky boy.  He has gone to his furever home in Petaluma with Lesley-Anne and Bryce and their 3 year old boxer.  He will now be known as "Moose".

Fifteen dogs found their furever homes in October.  Amazing team effort from our volunteers, donors, sponsors, partners and of course adopters!


Today Travis took what we hope will be a journey to his furever home.  It's incredible to see this wonderful dog and think that somebody put him in a taxi and abandoned him in Petaluma. Natalie, Heidi and the wonderful team at Petaluma Animal Services fixed a dental issue and called us.

Travis has been with us for a couple of weeks since then and Keri, Mara, Dawn and our friends at Marin Humane Services helped us get him neutered.  This weekend Sheila and Bruce drove up from Los Angeles, fell in love, as did Travis.  He jumped into their car as a happy camper and was off.

Many have asked why we called him Travis. He was our first Taxi Driven German Shepherd Dog! 



First, Bandit joins Mom and Dad and two other GSDs that are dear to our hearts. Bandit is so easy going and sweet he fit right in with Sasha and Yoda. We are happy for all of them!

Karma found a great home in the North Bay. She will live with two kitties and three humans. Karma's mom can take good dogs to work; Karma will be a great ambassador for the GSD Breed, loving on the staff and elderly clients. Karma is a perfect choice for this line of work. We are very happy for the whole family as well!

Thank you to our adoption counselors, Kristy and Karen, for finding these two great families. Bandit came from our friends at the East County Shelter in Dublin; Karma came from our friends at the Mendocino Animal Control in Ukiah.
