Sweet Shepherd Rescue Inc is committed to providing aid to the German Shepherd dog breed through rescue, education and rehabilitation. Through our expert medical care program we ensure difficult medical cases are given the best chances at survival, while our foster program provides care for surrendered and rescued dogs. We offer an assisted rehoming service which utilises our stringent adoption guidelines to rehome dogs into appropriate homes, stopping the cycle of animal abuse and backyard breeding. Our seniors program takes in old souls who are given the chance to live out their twilight years in comfort, often with complex medical needs. Sweet Shepherd Rescue Inc aims to educate families about the German Shepherd breed to ensure all of these sweet and often misunderstood dogs are a welcomed family member.
Our Rescue Established in 2013 and based in Victoria, Sweet Shepherd Rescue Australia Inc. (SSRA) offers rescue, education and rehabilitation to German Shepherd dogs all across Australia, through our extensive network of volunteers and staff. We are a registered not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the German Shepherd breed, and are continually looking for support through assistance from volunteers, donations and pledges.
A pretty big task to take on; if you can assist us in caring for any of these dogs through fostering, adoption or donation, please get in touch!
When dogs of any breed get older, they can become too difficult for many families to manage, and the German Shepherd breed can experience a range of afflictions in their later years. Thankfully, SSRA offers refuge to these beautiful seniors, complete with a comfy bed, blankets and all the creature comforts they deserve, as well as any medical needs attended to with our full support and consideration. We recognise that caring for a senior, especially through the inevitable, is a special job and not for everyone, which is why we offer a senior sponsorship pledge for those looking to care for one of these senior souls but without the ability to provide the emotional or medical support. These pledges enable us to provide ongoing care and medical treatment to seniors. In return for your commitment to them, we provide you with monthly updates and a 100% tax deductible receipt of your donation.
