Developed as the rescue program of the German Shepherd Dog Club of Sacramento Valley
, German Shepherd Rescue of Sacramento Valley
(GSRSV) became an independent rescue organization when former volunteer Brian Foran took over in February 2001.
Since then, he and his network of foster homes in the Sacramento area have been taking in German Shepherd Dogs (GSDs) and GSD mixes from area shelters while also helping people who need to find suitable homes for their dogs. The philosophy: "GSRSV seeks adopters who are active outdoors, strive to socialize their adopted German Shepherds with other dogs and people, and welcome them in their house as a member of their family," explains Foran.Through 2010, GSRSV has rescued and placed nearly 500 dogs.
One hopeful candidate currently in foster is Lobo, who's excellent with children but timid around men. He's good with other dogs, calm in the house, learning his manners, and should not live with cats. Check him out here
