Adopt

Washington German Shepherd Rescue is dedicated to placing neglected, abandoned and unwanted German Shepherd Dogs into loving, permanent, homes.

Adoptions are not done on a first come, first serve basis. Washington German Shepherd Rescue is the companion animal's advocate and will select the most suitable home for the unique needs of each individual dog in our care. We reserve the right to refuse service and adoption without explanation.

Our hours are by appointment only. If we find you to be a good match for one of our rescue animals and our adoption program, we will contact you within 72 hours.  We must review your application before an appointment is scheduled--no exceptions.

If you would like to adopt one of our dogs, please start by completing our application form.  We look forward to working with you.
