Best German Shepherd Rescues USA

 

What you need to know before you look for a rescue dog

one or more rescue dogs?The best dog rescue centers look well after their dogs, and so they make use of all viable funding sources to raise the money they need: They benefit from our own rescue center support and our Adoption Starter Pack from MYGERMANSHEPHERD.ORG, they have Amazon wish lists and associate accounts, they raise sweepstakes and monetary and physical donations from a wide variety of companies, etc - but not crappy kibble from the more than willing pet "food" sponsors. The best rescues aim to keep the dogs healthy.

In fact, when you adopt a dog from one of the best rescue centers, you can be confident that the rescue dog is both health-wise and behavior-wise in a better state than the average non-rescue dog: The rescues organized regular veterinary health checks and treatment where necessary, they had the dog altered to prevent diseases, disorders, and pet overpopulation, they avoid foolish blanket treatments with antibiotics and steroids, they work with the right vet, and they regularly let the dogs socialize in a pen.

The more money we help them to raise, the better they can look after their dogs. But it's not just about money: The best rescue centers know that over half of all adopted dogs end up at a shelter again - just a different one. And so the best rescue centers focus heavily on educating adopters. Providing the education that a dog owner needs to successfully integrate the rescue dog in the newly found family. Sometimes the education a shelter provides can even prevent that the dog is left with the shelter! Our Adoption Starter Pack is a great example of this quality of education.

Placing a dog, and adopting a dog, that's comparatively easy. Successfully integrating the rescue dog in a new family such that both the family and the dog feel they benefit permanently, that's an entirely different story. The real "dog problems" rarely manifest within a month after adoption, but later, namely when the four to six weeks family socialization period hasn't been put to use! And for this you need education, not money.

So if you have the choice, go for the best dog rescue centers as described above. We cannot vouch for all the ones below, you know that quality changes over time. But note that the best rescues will provide you with the top resources for that time when you need them. They have our Adoption Starter Pack for you for this very reason. Ask them for it.
