We connect people who want to adopt or rescue a German Shepherd with people who need to rehome their German Shepherd in the Houston 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 Feel at Home in Houston
When you are with a dog breed as courageous and confident as a German Shepherd, you will always feel cared for. As one of the most populated cities in the country, Houston is a bustling metropolis that your German Shepherd will love exploring with you.
German Shepherds are muscular and agile by nature, naturally enjoying outdoor exercise. The Discovery Green area in downtown Houston offers acres of activity filled with fountains, trails, pond, and special dog runs. After a romp in the park you can grab a bite to eat in one of the many dog-friendly restaurants that surround the center.
This energetic breed is highly trainable and thrives in an environment with structure. Start early at the Houston Obedience Training Dog Club, or H.O.T. Dog for short. They offer classes, seminars, workshops and events to socialize with your new fellow dog-lover friends. Your obedient German Shepherd will be at the top of the class!
German Shepherds will fill your days with joy in the city of Houston.
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.
Houston Adopters meet and learn about pets from the Guardians (owners) who know them best.
Houston Veterinarians examine pets at no extra charge as a part of the pet adoption.
Pets go directly from one loving home in Houston to another. Less stress. Less chance of illness or death.

Houston Guardians keep their pets out of the shelter and find them a loving, new home.
Houston Shelters can focus limited resources on strays and abused animals. More available kennel space means fewer animals euthanized.
