Why do you only take German Shepherds from animal welfare organizations?
Dogs at animal controls have no advocates and often have very limited time periods before facing death. Animal controls often provide initial vaccinations and heartworm testing. Some organizations take care of the spay and neuters beforehand. These organizations also have very experienced animal handlers that can objectively evaluate the dog's behavior around other dogs, cats, children, and people even before calling our rescue. This saves us time, money, and other valuable resources, as well as allows our rescue and the animal welfare organizations to work together and rescue those German Shepherds that can be made ready for adoption out to families.
