We connect people who want to adopt or rescue a German Shepherd with people who need to find their German Shepherd a new home in the Atlanta area.
What We Do
Direct rescue & adoption of pets, from one good home to another. Rehoming a German Shepherd keeps them out of shelters.
“Program innovations, like the match-making website developed by Get Your Pet, can be life savers for pets, owners and shelters.”Matt Bershadker ASPCA President & CEO
German Shepherds Love Atlanta’s Southern Charm
German Shepherds are a great addition to the family with their courageous and protective personalities. An easily trained breed, German Shepherds respect their owners and treat them with love and loyalty. They exude the Southern Charm Atlanta is known for. You can join The German Shepherds of Atlanta Dog Club for training resources and events such as specialty shows and member picnics.
Atlanta is home to many dog-friendly restaurants like Lucky’s Burger and Brew. Taking its name from the owner’s dog that can often be found roaming the restaurant, Lucky’s serves as a watering hole for patrons and canines alike.
The Piedmont Dog Park offers all the amenities you need for a fun adventure with your furry friend, making the park the perfect place for a big, high-energy dog to run around off-leash. You can enjoy events all year long with your German Shepherd, like Atlanta Symphony Orchestra concerts, or the Splish Splash Doggie Bash. If you start to get hungry, head over to the Park Tavern for a bite to eat. Voted Best Patio & Dog-Friendly Restaurant in Atlanta, it even hosts dog-themed events like a doggie costume party for Halloween.
A German Shepherd will charm all of your neighbors in Atlanta!
The best way to save a beloved German Shepherd, or any pet, is to keep them out of the shelter system. Rehoming a dog or cat is a better kind of pet adoption, in every way.
Atlanta Adopters meet and learn about pets from the Guardians (owners) who know them best.
Atlanta Veterinarians examine pets at no extra charge as a part of the pet adoption.
Pets go directly from one loving home in Atlanta to another. Less stress. Less chance of illness or death.
