Sweet Shepherd Rescue

Sweet Shepherd Rescue Australia Inc was established in 2013 and operates from Victoria across Australia.

SSRAI is a not for profit organisation and developed for the purpose of rescuing and finding forever homes for German Shepherd Dogs of all ages. Without rescues like Sweet Shepherd, GSD’s are at risk of being euthanised in pounds across the country.

Our main purpose is to rescue and rehome as many German Shepherds as we can; as well as offering Sanctuary and Palliative care to senior and sick GSD’s.
