Woman-owned and volunteer-run 501(c)3 non-profit German Shepherd rescue in the Pacific Northwest.

Dedicated to the rescue and placement of German Shepherd Dogs in need

They’re more than just a dog, so we’re more than just a rescue.

That’s why we’re committed to matching German Shepherds in need with permanent homes in Washington, Oregon, and California.


Adding a new family member is a big and exciting moment. Our devoted team pairs German Shepherds to best-fit families for happy and lifelong placement.
