About German Shepherd Rescue

German Shepherd Rescue offers German Shepherd and shepherd mix dog adoptions to veterans in Northern Illinois through its partnership with Pets for Patriots, and will help them find their new best friends. Operating since 1996, the organization fosters all dogs until adoption, during which time they receive medical care and socialization in a home setting. To increase awareness of these dogs in the community, the group participates in adoption events at area PetSmart stores.

To support the ongoing care of the animals in its charge, German Shepherd Rescue operates a sponsor program for those who would like to help a dog, but who are unable to adopt or foster. Contributions starting at $10 help the organization pay for a range of necessary medical care.

German Shepherd Rescue welcomes monetary donations; for a more hands on experience, become one of their valued volunteers or pet fosters.

Adoption fees include:

Vaccinations, including rabies
Fecal and heartworm testing
Microchip for permanent identification


Hours of Operation
Adoptions by appointment only.
