North Dakota German Shepherd Rescue

 


 

We are a virtual Shepherd rescue (do not house dogs here, only post them on the website). We help match people by keeping a list of people who are looking for an adult Shepherd and people who can no longer care for theirs for one reason or another. If you are either of these, please call 701-526-3633 or email anne@gaardog.com

We are also looking for foster homes, people willing to house and care for a GSD until a forever home can be found.

 

SURRENDERING A PET

If you feel you can no longer keep your pet:

  • Ask friends, family, relatives, co-workers and anybody you know to help get the word out that you are looking for a home for your pet.  There is a good chance that somebody might know somebody who knows somebody, and so on, who is looking for a pet.  It will be a much smoother transition for your pet to move from your home into a new home versus going to a homeless animal shelter.
  • Put an ad in the newspaper. Ask for a re-homing fee - only give away to people you know. Remember, you don't have to give your dog to the first person who answers the ad.  Don't be afraid to ask a lot of questions, or even ask to see where your pet would be living.  Use your best judgment when interviewing potential new owners, and go with your gut feeling about people.
  • Place a free ad with us. We ask that potential adopters fill out a questionnaire first before giving them your contact info.
  • Make flyers to hang around town.  Ask storeowners if you may place flyers in their store.  Try to post flyers in high traffic locations - grocery stores, animal supply stores, veterinary clinics and gas stations, for example.
  • Call your local humane society.  Try to use this as a last resort.  Owner-surrendered animals have a harder time adjusting to shelter life, and in many cases, become depressed or develop anxiety.
