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.


2011 was our first full year of service. We adopted out 21 german shepherds. Other animals were pulled from shelters in southern california and placed in foster homes until they will be adopted.

Being a part of this organization is the most rewarding experience I've ever had. To know that we are making such a big difference in the lives of the German Shepherds we save is very fulfilling. Our rescued dogs are amazing animals, still able to see the good in people and in the world despite whatever negativity they have encountered in the past. Fostering has allowed me to see the transformation these dogs make from being sick, sad and scared to happy, playful, and confident. A grateful look, a gentle hug, a sloppy kiss and wigglebutt tail wags from my fosters are just icing on the cake! And of course, we wouldn't be able to continue our rescue work without our great team of volunteers, board members and advisors as well as our donors and supporters in the community.
