GSDRI is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization;  the full amount of your contribution is deductible for federal income tax purposes. 

We are a foster based rescue group that is run by dedicated volunteers.  We do not have a shelter facility.  Our dogs live in homes as family members, with the same love, care and attention they would receive in an adoptive home until they find their forever home.  All of our dogs are vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed/neutered prior to adoption.

We rescue dogs from shelter facilities that are in danger of being euthanized because of overcrowding.   We occasionally consider owner surrenders on a case-by-case basis if there are no other options for the dog, depending on available foster home space.

We provide training, socialization, vet care, and evaluation for all of the foster dogs in our care.  We are proud to have some former fosters working as therapy dogs in care facilities, service dogs for the disabled, police dogs, and search and rescue dogs....and most of all, they are all someone's best friend!
