About Us

German Shepherd Rescue of Central New York, Inc is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization made up of a group of dedicated volunteers committed to finding loving permanent homes for homeless German Shepherds. It all started 40 years ago when our founder had a dream rescuing and rehoming German Shepherds with no assistance financial or otherwise, GSRCNY has blossomed into what it is today. Our Volunteers come from all different background but share one common interest the German Shepherd Dog and With your help this organization can continue to grow.
You can volunteer to assist with the basic care of these dogs such as attending obedience classes, grooming a dog, walking dogs or fostering a dog. GSRCNY also needs volunteers to do home visits, screen potential adopters, make phone calls and assist with the every day work necessary to run this organization. Go to our HOW YOU CAN HELP page to see some suggestions about how YOU can help. No job is too small and suggestions are always welcome.  If you would like to sponsor a dog please make a donation in that dogs name. Donations are 100% tax deductible and always welcome.  A huge thanks to all of the volunteers who have supported us throughout the last few years. We could not do what we do without your help.  GSRCNY is Pleased to announce we now have 2 Trainers working with our dogs. If you have unresolved problems with a dog you are either fostering or have adpoted, Please give us a call at 315-696-6806 so we can put you in touch with our trainers. This is a service that in the past has been missing from our organization and we are thrilled to be able to supply our dogs with this much needed service. Thank you Rob & Margie for your time and patience you have so graciously given to our dogs.
