The AGSRA is a fund raising/educational organization. The funds we receive are used to advance the work of organizations rescuing German Shepherd Dogs. This meets our goal of protecting the German Shepherd Dog from suffering due to cruelty, homelessness, ignorance, neglect and misuse.
DIRECTORY OF RESCUES BY STATE
A directory of German Shepherd rescue organizations is maintained and updated annually. Currently there are over 125 rescues across the United States .

10/01/07 through 9/30/08 Distributions Totaled $ 13,210.00
This amount covered only a portion of the costs to re-home 52 German Shepherd Dogs reflecting a small portion of the amount each rescue spends per year on the dogs it saves.
Requests for funds are always higher than the amount available.
Rescue organizations charge adoption fees and do fund raising but these amounts are typically inadequate to cover all their expenses.
Your support is needed and always welcome. Please make donations payable to AGSRA, Inc. and mail to Elaine Peters, Treasurer, 2820 Substation Road, Medina, Ohio, 44256.
