GSRSV's 2000 Rescue Record

In 2003, GSRSV rescued 65 dogs, and placed 62 dogs (45 which we rescued in 2003, the rest from the previous year or years). The placement figure was well below that for 2002 (90 dogs), which GSRSV believes was primarily due to the economic downturn of 2003. When people's employment is an uncertainty, adopting a pet becomes a much lower priority. We hope that 2004 is a more stable year financially, and that more people and families will open their doors and hearts to the joys of adopting a rescued German Shepherd or GSD mix. 

Following is a table listing the dogs that we have rescued and placed in loving homes in 2003. Though we are a small rescue group, we work hard to rescue as many German Shepherds as we can. 

Most of the dogs that GSRSV rescues are kept together in one facility, and don't receive the one-on-one attention that makes a true "foster home." Additionally, lack of foster caretakers limits the number of dogs that GSRSV can rescue at any given time. Please help GSRSV save as many dogs as possible by becoming a foster caretaker!
