Description Stepping Stone German Shepherd Rescue is an all volunteer, not for profit organization dedicated to finding new homes for German Shepherd Dogs.

Our German Shepherds are primarily from homes that can no longer keep them for a variety of reasons: lack of commitment, lack of knowledge about the breed, divorce, illness, death of owner, moving, allergies or abuse.   We also have German Shepherds that were found as strays or were obtained from shelters.

We have many wonderful German Shepherds available for adoption from 8 week old puppies to senior citizens, long and short coats and many color patterns.

Our dogs are fostered for at least a number of weeks before becoming available for adoption.  Then they are started in obedience training and socialization activities.   This allows us to evaluate the dogs for temperament and health before matching them with their new human companions.

If you have questions about whether a German Shepherd Dog is the right  dog for you, see our breed information page on the website.

In addition, because of special circumstances, owners may have to give up their German Shepherd Dog.  As a service to them, Stepping Stone provides a webpage of owner referral shepherds.  We have seen these animals and performed an evaluation, but have obviously not spent a significant amount of time with the dogs.  This page is listed as a service to these owners.
