Mission: 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.

I am currently a one-person rescue group who helps stray, abandoned, neglected &/or injured animals. I recently helped a stray Shepherd mix that was wandering in a local park. After having him scanned for a microchip, knocking on doors & posting flyers, no owner was found. I reached out to GS Safe Haven because I knew they had the tools & resources to find this sweet boy a home. Being unemployed at the time, I desperately needed their assistance. They were friendly, gracious & helpful. We met so they could meet the dog & once they discovered what a sweetheart he was, they agreed to take him & named him Newman. The care they take with their dogs is AWESOME! You can tell they truly care about the dogs & take great effort in getting good photos for their website, detailed bios & they're genuine. Luckily Newman found a wonderful home rather quickly & what a happy ending it was. I am so grateful to them & appreciate their efforts. If I lived closer, I would certainly volunteer with their organization! They also pull dogs (even purebreds end up in shelters) from high kill shelters which is a real blessing. Please support & adopt from these great folks!

As a long time member of the veterinary medicine community, and have plenty of experience interacting with animal rescues. I can say that without a doubt, German Shepherd Safe Haven is the most responsible rescue I have encountered. They consider each rescue from all angles before accepting them (prevents the over crowding and potentially volatile situations many rescues find themselves in). Each dog receives the same medical care as a family pet would, and behaviors are evaluated and corrected if necessary. Before adopting out, Tom and Jen carefully evaluate each potential home and if the dog would thrive there. They do a lot with limited resources, and are always up front and honest with their needs. Great job!
