German Shepherd Badge


Hundreds of Dogs Rescued Since January 2017


Shenandoah Shepherd Rescue (SSR) was founded in 2017 and is a 501c3, all-volunteer rescue focused primarily on the rescue of German Shepherd Dogs. We are based out of the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia, but expand our reach and work to save German Shepherd Dogs in heavily populated areas throughout the country. Many of our members have been saving dogs all over the world for years. Our hope is to help rescue, rehabilitate and re-home every German Shepherd in need. After years of dedicating our lives to other rescues, we decided to venture into our own rescue to expand our reach to places like Texas with a high population of homeless dogs and bring them to the east coast where they are more adoptable. We have a strong passion to help the breed, but would like to extend a helping hand to other dogs in need when we have the abilities. We are very passionate in our belief that every dog deserves a chance at life in a good home, no matter where they come from.
