My wife and I are in the early stages of looking for a new furry friend. She is convinced that a GSD would be the best fit for our needs. Looking forward to meeting some of them at one of the GSRA events.

Goodluck to all the doggos. Hoping forever homes come soon

Message From: Clinton Dickens January 2, 2022
A good friend, who has had GSD's from this site & recently has adopted a new one, made me aware of this rescue & recommended it highly. My last two dogs have been recuses & have convinced me that rescues make excellent, loyal companions. Both of my previous rescues have been Rottweiler mix. My most recent dog passed away several months ago, so I've reached the stage where I'm beginning the search for my next "best friend". Over the years, I've had several GSD's so I'm aware that they make great companions.

My Shepherd, Liebe (love), needs a friend. Please help her find her bestie as her friend her whole life, a Great Pyrenees, is fading in old age.

The dog with the allergies try local honey everyday and it will make a big difference. We did that for years for our German Shepard. It really helped.

Yesterday May 8 2021 my wife Pam and and our son met the beautiful Gracie Mae. We felt a nice connection at the meet and greet! We just lost our last GSD rescue of 8+ years that we found on site last November. We will fill out the application in hopes of adopting Gracie!

I have been a GSD fan since my first girl (1987!!!). I have a GREAT feeling about Bosco. Although Injust paid the $30.00 adoption fee application, I am unable to find an application form. Please advise next step (so fingers crossed, Bosco will find his forever home with me). Sincere thanks:)! [GSRA: Our applications are currently closed, you are welcome to apply when they are up again on 14Nov]

Message From: Whitney October 18, 2020
I'm a strong believer in rescue foundations and truly appreciate what you're doing for these dogs. I found your site by a stroke of luck after finding a post about Freddy. I'm very interested in giving him a home. Please contact me!

Will the October event be the "reunion" this year? Was looking forward to taking Brooklyn to her first! [GSRA Response: Unfortunately if we do have an event in October it will be a Meet and Greet, we won't be able to do our annual reunion picnic due to the current pandemic:-(]

Message From: Lynne June 27, 2020
Hello, our 11 yr.old female GS/Husky mix needs a playmate because her current buddy has cancer and his time is limited. We were interested in Atreus but see an adoption is pending; so Loki might be just the buddy for her.

Message From: laura May 5, 2020
When adoptions open up I am interested in Griffin

Message From: Lauren April 23, 2020
Hello there! We finally got our yard fenced-in and our current 3-yr-old rescue GSD is such a happy boy to run free! We are looking to get him a buddy. Should I still submit an application or are applications on hold until we get through this quarantine period? Thanks for doing all that you do. Stay safe!! :) [GSRA Response: Apps will be back up on May 8th!]

Message From: Martin Taylor April 17, 2020
Can't wait for my family to adopt a German Shepherd.

Still no adoption applications?! [GSRA: We are sorry for any inconvenience but NC is under mandatory stay at home order and we value the health and safety of our volunteers. We will reassess at the end of the month]

Message From: Greg Wait April 6, 2020
Any word on when adoption applications will be up again? We are interested in meeting Yona. [No word yet]

Message From: Stewart Colley April 2, 2020
I would like to adopt one of your dogs but I can't seem to get a response to my e-messages and I can not find a number to call. As I am considering one of your puppies, a protracted delay will restrict the optimum window for socialization. That concerns me. You seem to be doing very good work. [Our applications are currently closed due to the current COVID-19 situation]

Message From: Louise Bensley March 4, 2020
Where are you located? I would be interested in meeting Atreus.

We just let our Karma Girl go over the rainbow bridge 3 weeks ago and miss her like crazy. I absolutely love the breed and am getting ready to adopt another after my wife has her knee surgery in the last part of October. I am so glad there are dedicated people to rescue the amazing animals. Thanks!

You will be getting Kami from Columbus County Friday. This is what I was told. I would love to keep up with her as I have fell in love with her. I would love to adopt her, but at this time I unable to, so that is why I want to keep up with her (in case things change). I had a GS that I rescued and I lost her 3 years ago, and I still cry for my loss. Kami looks so much like her, and I really want to be able to get her, or make sure that she does get the home she deserves. Please keep me informed. Thank you for all you do for these beautiful and loving dogs.

We (my wife, myself and our dog, Bandit) met Princess Merida and her foster Mom about 3 weeks ago and immediately fell in love with her. We submitted the application and are looking forward to seeing her again really soon. We would love to be her forever home.
