Join the GS Rescue team at the 2017 Strut your Mutt event.   It will be on Oct. 21st from 1:30-6:00 PM at Exposition Park.   Click here for more information.  And you can click on the image above for a direct link to our fundraising page.  The Kennel will be closed on Saturday Oct. 21.  Many of our volunteers and dogs will be at Exposition Park so come join us for the strut and meet some of our pups.  The Rescue will be open for adoptions on Sunday Oct. 22 from 1pm to 5pm as usual.

Welcome to the German Shepherd Rescue website!

We are located at 417 N Moss Street, Burbank, CA 91502 near Victory and Magnolia Blvds., and we’re open Saturdays and Sundays from 1-5pm.

Click the Available Dogs tab above to see pictures of our pups that are currently looking for their forever homes.  If you’re interested in meeting any of our dogs or starting the adoption process we suggest submitting the Adoption Application online so we have time to process it before you arrive at the kennel.  As our dogs find homes it makes room for new dogs to be rescued from city and county shelters so check back often to see if we have your future new best friend.

We are also looking for new volunteers.  Our organization is a non-profit and we are entirely staffed by volunteers so we need all the help we can get.  If you or someone you know (or if you can spread the word through your social network) is interested in volunteering please don’t hesitate to contact us.  You can email us at or you can stop by the kennel when we’re open to apply.

Please don’t forget to re-register your Ralph’s Card!

When it comes to doggy beds, not all of our dogs are as lucky as C.J.


We’re making a special donation request for Kuranda Beds for some of our dogs.  They are a comfortable, elevated, chew-proof, easy-to-clean dog bed that lifts the dog off the cold hard concrete and provides firm orthopedic support for older dogs or dogs with joint discomfort.  It would be a valuable donation that would last for years to come and benefit many dogs while they wait for their forever homes (and forever beds).  The Large or X-Large would be ideal for German Shepherds.  You can use the link below to get a special rescue discounted price.  Thank you from all our pups!  (pictured above: C.J. who was adopted in 2012)
