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

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
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
- 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
