The Greater Houston German Shepherd Dog Rescue (GHGSDR) is a volunteer-based non-profit animal welfare group dedicated to saving as many German Shepherds in the Greater Houston Metro area as humanly possible – based on current resources of available foster homes, the rate at which we can find suitably matched adoptive homes, and of course, financial resources for veterinary care.

As a charitable group, they are always open for volunteers who wish to make a difference in the lives of companion animals in need. Members of the community can open their homes for fostering or for adoption so that these German Shepherd Dogs can have a second chance at having a happy family life.

In addition, people can also help by donating financially via PayPal. Any donation will be gladly accepted by the group. As a guide, here’s how far your contribution can go:

  • $10 will board a dog for one day.
  • $25 will pay for a microchip so that lost dogs have increased chance of returning home.
  • $50 will cover initial vaccinations and/or purchase HeartWorm preventative.
  • $100 will nearly cover the cost to spay/neuter a dog and help alleviate continued overcrowding of local shelters.
  • $200 – $500 will cover the cost of HeartWorm treatments, as well as the cost of dental work or other necessary care to provide a pain-free future to an older GSD.
  • $500 -$1,000 will help pay for necessary major surgery for any reason as prescribed by the attending veterinarian.
