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.

Save A Dog - Be A Foster Home

Meo Saved By A Foster

Meo was a scared 7 year old German Shepherd, abandoned at a shelter in southern New Jersey. An older, large breed dog like Meo may only a limited time at a shelter environment. By providing a foster home to a dog like Meo you will be saving his life. Thanks to a foster home with GSGSR, today Meo lives in active home with another dog and children that play with him and give him love and attention. Save a Dog, find out about being a Foster Home.

Remembering Czar 2006 - 2014

Czar in 2008

Czar's owner contacted us in the fall of 2008, to help her find a loving home for Czar. Changes in her life and job made it difficult for her to give Czar the attention and time necessary to keep a big young German Shepherd happy and engaged. Through our owner referral program we were able to find Czar a new family a wonderful Christmas present. You can read Czar's story and others like him on our memorials page.
