Our Rescue



German Shepherd Safe Haven Inc.

German Shepherd Safe Haven Inc. is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Public Charity dedicated to finding loving forever homes for abandoned German Shepherds. Our main goal is to rescue, train, rehabilitate, and re-home German Shepherds from shelter environments and from owner surrenders. Our secondary goal is to provide education to the public on the temperament, personality, and life span of the breed, as well as the importance for owners to spay and neuter their dogs. We believe that matching each dog’s temperament and personality to a family’s needs is fundamental to creating life-long relationships where the dog is not just a dog, but a valued member of the family.

We have been asked if we are affiliated with any other rescue and the answer is NO we are not.

We started this rescue from the ground up without ties to other rescue groups. This rescue was started by founder Tom and co-founder Jen for personal reasons. Tom lost his Shepherd the year before and she made such a huge impact in his life that he wanted to start this rescue in memory of her. Jen, after fostering numerous rescued Shepherds and adopting two of her own, wanted a way to give back to the community and make a bigger difference in the lives of these helpless, homeless dogs. Thus German Shepherd Safe Haven was formed.
