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!


We receive wonderful support from the Maddie's Fund.  Here are the 2015 statistics!


We just learned from our friends at DogTrekker that you can now search for and book dog friendly hotels right from their site.  

When we are traveling we often struggle to find try and find places that are dog friendly.

Don't forget about their state of the art free app for your smartphone!  It's right here

So check this out.  Great idea!



Just a quick note to tell you that you can order the 2016 Calendar right here!

It's gorgeous and packed with pictures and great stories.   All proceeds go to the dogs!


One of our local shelters asked if we would foster these little puppies while their case makes it through the court system. Puppies and Mama are fine, and they will get everything they need in Pat M's ever loving care. (Pat is our itty bitty puppy foster mom and is extraordinary!)

We'll update every week or so on our Facebook page. Suffice it to say, though, you'll probably not see them in a basket, all together, again. smile emoticon

We can't talk about the case; the important thing is that this GSD family is safe and in loving arms.

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
