Shenandoah Shepherd Rescue (SSR) is a 501c3, all-volunteer rescue focused primarily on the rescue of German Shepherd/Shepherd Mix 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, primarily south Texas. While our rescue is a young organization (founded January 2017), our volunteers have been rescuing German Shepherds for many years. Our hope is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home every German Shepherd in need. After years of dedicating our lives to other German Shepherd rescues, we decided to venture into our own rescue to expand our reach into uncovered territories by our current rescue. We have a strong passion to help the breed, but would like to extend a helping hand to the various shepherds in need: Shiloh, Dutch, Belgian, etc. We are also very passionate about trying to help rescue dogs on the west coast and southern states, where there are more dogs dying in shelters than there are rescues to keep up with them. SSR promotes spay/neuter and vaccination as a way to reduce population and disease among these dogs.
