0

 

There are many German Shepherd rescue centres and leagues, shelters, adoption and rehoming centres, kennels and foster places around the US. But, it’s confusing to know exactly where to find quality places to rescue/adopt if you want to find a German Shepherd. If you have thought ‘Where can I find a German Shepherd dog or puppy?’, the list below will help you find reputable rescues in the US state by state!

 

German Shepherd Rescue and Adoption List (US): Find A Rescue Near You!

The following listings are part of the AKC’s Rescue Network, which is the largest in the United States. Something that is unique about the AKC’s (American Kennel Club) Rescue Network Groups is that the fostering/rehabilitation period for their dogs and German Shepherds lasts as long as is necessary before the dog is rehomed.

We have made it easy for you to find a German Shepherd Adult Dog, or Puppy (and German Shepherd Mix) at a local Rescue Group, or one nearest you – north, south, east and west (there’s also White German Shepherd rescues, and military deployment rehome volunteers lists at the bottom of this article):
