If you own a dog you adopted from GSRNE and you need to place that dog, CALL US immediately: 978-443-2202, voicemail box #2. Leave your name, phone, name of the dog, and a good time to call you back. Your adoption contract stipulates that you must call GSRNE to help with placing your GSRNE dog.
At the present time, GSRNE rarely is able to accept dogs from private parties into the program due to the large numbers of dogs already on our waiting lists.
If you find that you cannot keep your dog and must turn it into a shelter, please feel free to forward the shelter information to us. We try to make every effort to work with shelters in order to help find appropriate homes though we usually have a waiting list of evaluated dogs waiting to come into the program. Let the shelter know that they can call GSRNE for assistance. Have the hotline number handy – (978) 443-2202.
GSRNE has been around since 1996. In that time, we have done our best to try to educate the public about the wonderful qualities of the German Shepherd Dog as well as dog ownership in general. If you are looking at this page we are assuming you are thinking of re-homing your dog. However, not that long ago you were thrilled to have a German Shepherd of your very own. You never dreamed you’d have to give him up someday. Even if you can’t keep him any more, your dog still depends on you to do what’s best for him. Now, more than ever, he needs you to make the right choices for his future.
Throughout the next few pages, we’re going to be direct and honest with you. Your dog is your responsibility. He has no one else but you to look out for his interests. It’ll take effort, patience and persistence to find him the right home. He deserves your best efforts. Finding a new home for a dog involves several steps. Before you start, please take a minute to read all the information contained in the next pages.
