I'd spent the majority of my adult life doing Collie Rescue. I had my own rescue for several years before eventually merging it into an all-So. CA inclusive Collie Rescue and becoming a member of their board of directors. I finally retired from rescue in 2008, ready to enjoy life, feeling I'd done my fair share of animal rescuing. A few years later I became aware of GSSH and met Tom Williamson. I was so impressed with the organization and the way it was run, I called Tom and offered our services to do "emergency, short-term fostering". Needless to say, before we knew it, we were much more involved than we'd ever planned and found ourselves adopting Wrangler, an absolutely fantastic, approximately 7 month-old, male Shepherd. Wrangler went through training and is now a certified service dog. This was not what we'd planned for our retirement years, but fate intervened and Tom and GSSH worked their magic. After all my years in rescue, it's not difficult to determine the good rescues from the bad and even easier to recognize those that are absolutely terrific. German Shepherd Safe Haven is absolutely terrific! They take the time to work with their rescued dogs, find the perfect adoption matches and follow up after adoptions are finalized. They've earned and deserve every 5-star review they receive.
