Urgent Request: Simba Needs Your Help!


Simba has been diagnosed with epilepsy.  Over the Fourth of July weekend Simba had to be rushed to Animal Specialty Group, our emergency vet, after suffering multiple seizures.  In addition to several tests Simba also had to undergo an MRI.  Her medical bills are now upwards of $4000.

At this time we ask that you help Simba in one of the following ways:

 – Donate in order to help cover her medical expenses.  Use the yellow donate button to the right to Donate.

 – Foster.  Our vet strongly recommends that Simba be placed in foster care so that she may rest, recuperate, and avoid further seizures.

 – Adopt.  Consider opening your heart and home to Simba.  With the right family Simba has the opportunity to thrive and lead the normal happy life that she deserves.

If you would like to foster or foster-to-adopt Simba please contact Diane at (818) 558-7560 or email at gsrescue@gsrescue.org.

Thank you!

Police K9 Demonstration & Educational Public Safety Fair

_2016 LAK9 FLYER

The Los Angeles County Police K9 Association is holding it’s annual Vendor Fair and K-9 Police Demo on Saturday August 6 at Santa Monica College.  The Association is a collaboration of law enforcement agencies in L.A. County utilizing canines for the prevention and detection of crime.  While L.A. County’s furry officers will be showing off their incredible crime fighting skills, GS Rescue will be participating as a vendor to demonstrate how our shepherds are equally skilled in rolling over for belly rubs, and spreading out on the couch.  There will be a K9 Show at 3pm where you’ll get to see the incredible German Shepherd Dog in action assisting his human partner in upholding the law, and in the meantime you can come and hang out with us at our booth!

Saturday August 6th – Santa Monica College Stadium – 1900 Pico Blvd. Santa Monica, 90405

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)
