Bay Area German Shepherd Rescue

You want to find a great dog that you and your family and friends will love for many years. We want our dogs to find homes that are perfect for them as well.  Our process is about getting to know you and our dogs so that we can make a perfect match! 


Your perfect dog in four easy steps: 

1) Complete the application 

In about 5 minutes you’ll tell us about your experience, lifestyle and where you live.  This helps us get a picture of you and the type of dog that you are looking for. We'll contact you!  Just click "Adoption Application"

2) We contact you

One of our adoption counselors will call you within 3 days and have a chat about your application. They will ask you to text some pictures of your fencing, gates and where your dog hangs out.

3) Dog shopping!

You’ll keep an eye on our dogs on our website and Facebook page.  The moment you see a dog that you are interested in you’ll contact your adoption counselor.

4) Adopting your dog

If it seems like a good match, we arrange for you to meet the dog at one of our adoption events or at the foster parent’s home. If the right match is made, you will be able to adopt your dog, there and then, and take your dog home!  The adoption fees are $400 for puppies and adults. 

That really is it!
