ShepHeroes is a non-profit animal rescue organization with a deeply experienced team of volunteers focused on carefully placing German Shepherd Dogs into loving homes that match the dog's temperament, activity level, and needs. Our dogs receive veterinary care and reside in volunteer foster homes while waiting for loving forever homes, and are altered, vaccinated, microchipped, given ShepHeroes and WAG id tags and registered with Finding Rover prior to adoption.

We focus our efforts on sound German Shepherd Dogs who are at risk due to abandonment, neglect, and abuse or significant change in circumstances.  For the safety of our volunteers and adopters, we do not accept aggressive or potentially dangerous dogs into our program. We primarily serve Northern California, concentrating in the geographic area from Monterey County north to the San Francisco Region and the greater Sacramento Area.

Our volunteers and donors are heroes!  Please join us with your time, talents, funds and love to lend a hand to help our furry friends. Our needs range from virtual to hands-on tasks  to support the care of shepherds while they are with us.

And our adopters, the ultimate heroes  - thank you for giving forever homes to the dogs we cherish! We're all in this together. #shepheroes
