About Garden State German Shepherd Rescue

Welcome to the Garden State German Shepherd Rescue web site. We are a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to rescuing and rehoming German Shepherd Dogs. We are a full service rescue and referral organization serving New Jersey and surrounding areas.

GSGSR foster dogs are rescued from shelters and pounds in New Jersey where most were facing euthanasia. Once in our program our dogs receive all necessary medical attention, which can range from updating vaccinations, spay/neutering, to more intensive surgical care if necessary. We also provide an owner referral service, where GSGSR works with the current owner to provide a new and loving home for their German Shepherd.


Jill and Gello

Jill and Gello have found their forever homes together. They were the second pair of German Shepherds that have been adopted this year by GSGSR as part of our effort to find homes for the 29 dogs that were confiscated by Bergen County SPCA earlier this year. GSGSR took in 6 of those German Shepherds and now we are looking for one more forever home for our boy Ruger. Help make it a clean sweep and find out more about adopting Ruger, a 10 month old fun loving pup.


Owia - AHS Newark

GSGSR recently had the chance to meet Owia, a playful energetic German Shepherd that was surrendered to Newark Shelter last month. Owia is a young healthy dog that just loves to run around, play tug and chase tennis balls. She loves people and would be best in a home with NO other animals. Stop by and visit her at AHS - Newark located at 124 Evergreen Avenue, just off Route 1 and tell them you heard about her through GSGSR.
