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 have been a donor to this organization since 2011. I have to say what attracted me to this organization is their dedication to the dogs. Some organizations you see out there it is all about stroking their personal egos and seeing how many dogs they can place in a year. Rescuing can be very challenging at times and sometimes you can be jaded and your mission might be steered in the wrong direction. Not GSSH they are all about the well-being of the dogs and nothing else. It is all about quality of placement of the dog, not quantity of dogs placed. They are a foster based rescue and know their dogs very well, when you know the dogs it is a lot easier to place them in a home. I used to donate to a couple other GS rescues and after seeing how GSSH operates, they are by far the most professional and the most welcoming group of people out there. If you want to donate to a reputable organization that actually treats their dogs as the center of attention. This is the one!! I am lifetime donor!!

GSSH is the best local nonprofit organization. You won’t find a more dedicated, professional and passionate group of people. My husband and I went to their annual picnic and it was awesome! What was so special was to look around and realize that all of those dogs had been saved and were in wonderful forever homes. My husband made the comment, “Boy I’ve never seen so many happy dogs in my life.” I’d say the “humans” were pretty happy too, knowing that they had made a difference as well.

I've often witnessed of the great improvement in health and welfare of the German Shepherds between the time they are fostered until the time they are placed in their forever homes. I believe what drives this organization more than anything else is the best interests of their dogs. As such, I feel confident my monetary donations are spent wisely to the benefit of this awesome breed.
