A non-profit, volunteer-run, foster-based German shepherd dog rescue serving the greater Bay Area and Sacramento/Roseville regions of Northern California.

Their primary focus is rescuing German shepherd dogs from life threatening situations in overcrowded shelters where they are in danger of being put to sleep. They adopt the dogs into loving, responsible permanent homes.

German shepherd dogs in their care are spayed or neutered, and receive basic veterinary care while they await placement in their permanent homes. They work with area shelters and other rescue groups to develop a network of support for German shepherd dogs in need.

Pulled in the nick of time from a high-kill shelter in Fresno, young Falco had barely arrived in his foster home when his rescuers realized that something was seriously wrong. The young German shepherd was much too thin, but when he tried to eat he screamed in pain.

Luckily for Falco, he'd been taken in by Second Chance German Shepherd Rescue, who feared the worst but were determined to relieve his pain and give him a quality life if they could. As his vet soon discovered, he was suffering from a dislocated temporomandibular joint (joint of the jaw), which caused excruciating torment when he tried to eat—but was relatively easy to fix. After some chiropractic work, the pain was gone, his appetite returned, and so did his zest for life. Now in foster care, he's happy, healthy, and having fun while waiting for his perfect match. more »
