I adopted a 2 year old German Shepherd recently, Kaiser. I was very impressed by this group, all volunteers involved in the process were very helpful. They truly care about the dogs they rescue and take the time to make sure the right dog will go with the right family.

all the volunteers involved with the process of adopting Kaiser were very helpful answering all my questions regarding owning a German Shepherd. I know I can still count on them for any advice with any issue I might be having.

I would ask to have a "meet and greet" in the Clear Lake area

We discovered this wonderful organization by accident. When our dog died recently of old age, we soon realized how much we loved him as a member of the family. We wanted a new companion immediately, and we started to search local shelters. We really wanted a German Shepherd, but the chances of finding one in a shelter was slim.
While my wife was searching shelters on the internet, Second Chance's website appeared as one of the choices. We did not even realize that there were groups out there that fostered specific breeds of dogs, and to find one that fostered German Shepherds was more than we hoped for.
Once we contacted Second Chance, we could tell they were good people.
They loved their foster pets, and we were interviewed thoroughly to make sure that whatever dog we wanted would be a good fit for our family. Our house had a walk-through and the yard was inspected to make sure that the dog would be safe in his new home.
We made several visits to public places where the dogs were greeting potential family members, and then we met Austin and his foster mom, Michelle. Michelle told us about Austin's rough start in life, but Michelle and Second Chance took him in and nursed him back to health. They also gave him the love that he had not received previously.
Austin is now a happy member of our family, and he is spoiled rotten.
The kids love him and play with him whenever they get the chance.
Michelle, her family, and the rest of the the volunteers at Second Chance are taking these German Shepherds into their homes because they love these animals, especially this breed.
No one knows the mind of God, but I have to believe that there is a special place in heaven for those who care for animals that cannot care for themselves.

I adopted a German Shepherd puppy from Second Chance, and found it a
wonderful experience all the way around. The group really cares deeply about the breed, and about making the perfect connection between dog and adopter. They take all family dynamics into consideration, and work hard to make the right match. They are a very active group of volunteers that work tirelessly to find great dogs "furever homes." I just can't imagine my life now without my sweet boy Blitz. Two thumbs up to Second Chance!

I adore the people who make saving German shepherd's and giving them a second chance at a life filled with love and belly rubs their purpose in life. We adopted our German shepherd from them in April of this year and the volunteers and fosters went above and beyond the call of duty to help us find a perfect fit. Whenever I had a question or concern they were there to offer advice or just to listen. The people of the organization have found their calling and are making a difference not only in the dogs life but the people adopting these amazing dogs and giving them a second chance at life. I will never own another breed of dog nor will I ever use any other organization to adopt through.

We adopted Tosca a couple of months ago and were very impressed with the staff of Second Chance German Shepherd Rescue Houston. From the application stage to the delivery of Tosca to the doorstep. We
also were impressed with the follow up both from them and the prompt response from the staff as well with our questions.

I came across this wonderful group accidentally on the internet while looking for a new addition to my family. I submitted my application on a Friday and by Sunday was contacted about attending an upcoming event to meet my prospective new baby. I took my German Shepherd with me to the event. I was greeted by a group of down to earth dog loving people who welcomed me and my dog like we were old friends. Make no mistake this group is meticulous in who they chose to allow their dogs to go home with. The following day Michelle (foster mother) and her family brought my soon to be Tosca to my home which in itself was a big deal as we live about two hours apart. We spent time talking about the expectations of me as a prospective adopter. The thing that sticks with me the most is the complete dedication and determination of this group to ensure the dogs they foster are placed with the best home. Lucky for me I passed the test and am the proud owner of Tosca and very smart stubborn beautiful loving GSD! Months later I still contact Michelle(Tosca's foster mom) for advice and pointers. This group clearly goes above and beyond for their dogs and I am proud to say I am associated with them and their cause. I highly recommend them to anyone who is serious about adopting a GSD.
