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 Brooklyn 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
Brooklyn, A Big City for Your Big German Shepherd
Brooklyn is just the New York City borough in which to live with your German Shepherd. These big, athletic dogs fit right in amongst the hustle and bustle of Brooklyn, New York. Although these pups originate from the German countryside, they will adapt and thrive in a place like Brooklyn.
Since Brooklyn is a larger community with plenty of green space, your German Shepherd will feel right at home. Originally bred to be a security dog, watching over sheep in open fields of the German Rhineland, the German Shepherd breed today is the hallmark of loyalty, rivaled only by its keen intelligence.
Brooklyn has plenty of cool, dog-friendly activities you and your German Shepherd can try together. For example, if your German Shepherd would like to go for a run off-leash, take him to Brooklyn's Dyker Beach Park, a sprawling park which offers a dog running area as well as an 18-hole golf course.
After running and playing their fill, your German Shepherd and you may want something to recoup your energy. Why not try some food and drink at Mission Dolores, a dog-friendly Brooklyn-based beer bar with both patio and indoor space. You can get a cocktail, and your German Shepherd can join other pups and their owners on the patio.
Last but not least, Brooklyn also has plenty of fun social activities for German Shepherds and their owners. You can meet and make friends with other Brooklyn dog owners while your pets play together at the Brooklyn and Beyond Dog and Puppy Fun Times meetup.
Your German Shepherd is just waiting to make Brooklyn home, so go out and adopt a German Shepherd today.
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.
Brooklyn Adopters meet and learn about pets from the Guardians (owners) who know them best.
Brooklyn Veterinarians examine pets at no extra charge as a part of the pet adoption.
Pets go directly from one loving home in Brooklyn to another. Less stress. Less chance of illness or death.
