Friends and Supporters,

We have been monitoring this evolving situation and wanted to share with you, the steps we are taking. Our highest priority is the safety of our adopters and volunteers.

While VGSR has cancelled all rescue events until further notice, the community and shelters need support and we are still taking in GSDs. If you are not looking to adopt, we encourage you to consider fostering.

At this time we are taking applications and scheduling virtual home visits. Approved adopters will be able to coordinate meeting a dog, after an initial phone conversation with the foster and the foster determining that there is a possible match. Visits will be conducted outside in an area where social distancing can be implemented and only after both parties agree to meet and verify they are well and have not had known exposure. Precautions to be taken during the visit should be discussed prior to meeting.

Thank you, volunteers, adopters and supporters for your help and patience as we continue to work to save lives, help the communities in which we live and find great homes for our dogs.

Scout 4601

Meet Scout!
Scout 4601 is a stunning looking 6-year old male from California. He was left behind when his owner evacuated from the fires, and he is now with us. When he arrived at the rescue, he was quite filthy with matted fur. With some TLC, he is looking much better!

Due to all the recent changes he has been through, he is a bit unsure of new surroundings and people. His adopters should allow him the time and space he needs to become comfortable with his new environment.
