German Shepherd Rescue and Adoption

Funded from 2009 to 2014

How we help

Grey Muzzle has provided a grant to German Shepherd Rescue for a new program, A Moment in Time.

The program has increased the rescue of senior GSD and GSD mixes from area shelters, as well as increased education and awareness of senior dog issues.

The mission of German Shepherd Rescue in Raleigh is to provide rescue, rehabilitation and adoption services to purebreds and mixes, and to address our community’s need for real solutions in the fight against animal homelessness, abuse and neglect.
