SGSR is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in North Carolina and committed to assisting German Shepherd Dog (GSD) rescue efforts throughout the Southeast. Our mission is to RESCUE displaced, neglected, or unwanted GSDs; REHAB them with proper medical care, nourishment, and socialization; and REHOME them into caring and responsible forever homes where they are able to thrive as alert, loving, and loyal family members.


SGSR was incorporated in April 2010. We began actively rescuing GSDs in May so that in 7 short months 46 dogs have been accepted into our program. In addition, through partnering with other GSD rescues, SGSR has ensured the safe rescue of several more GSDs that would have been euthanized otherwise.

Target demographics:

German Shepherd lovers everywhere, butespecially the Southeastern United States.

Geographic areas served:

Southeast United States


Rescue, Rehab, Rehome! Our program is saving adoptable GSDs, providing them with much needed care and placing them in loving forever homes.

This organization does not want to give people a real chance at adoption. The only interview was to call our vet and then make the determination to deny our application. No interview, no site visit, no checking references. My wife and I are professionals, I am retired and volunteer in my community. We raised a shepherd from a puppy, she lived fourteen years and was well trained and cared for. We have family members that own Shepherds. The girl at the organization told my wife that my wife could not be a animal lover because my wife "did not even know how to spell Shepherd correctly" I replied with an email only to get a snide reply also. People are rude, arrogant, and demeaning.

We adopted our first dog through Southeast German Shepherd Rescue and had a wonderful experience with their volunteers, adoption coordinators, and foster homes. The rescue is very professional and well-organized. We were motivated by the good, sacrificial work that we saw through SGSR and decided to become a foster home with the organization this year. We are huge supporters of this group and can't say enough good things about them.
