What Drives Us

Our Mission

True North German Shepherd Rescue is dedicated to providing rescue and support to German Shepherd Dogs in need in the Pacific Northwest. We are committed to finding permanent, loving homes for this unique and special breed.

Who We Are

True North German Shepherd Rescue was created with a profound mission: to unite German Shepherds in need with loving, forever homes in the Pacific Northwest. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, we rely wholeheartedly on the kindness of donors and the unwavering dedication of our volunteers, all driven by our shared love and respect for this extraordinary breed.

Our rescue philosophy is unique, centered on securing not just homes, but lifelong sanctuaries for each dog in our care. This involves temperament assessments, compassionate foster care, a thorough application process, and transparent adoptions.

But our commitment extends far beyond adoption day. We remain committed resources for our German Shepherd families, offering ongoing support and guidance throughout their companions’ lives. This steadfast dedication lies at the heart of our mission: to create a future where every German Shepherd experiences enduring love, comfort, and safety for their lifetime.

We invite you to join us in shaping this future and making a lasting impact on the lives of these incredible dogs and the admirable families who welcome them into their hearts and homes
