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 Los Angeles 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
Why German Shepherds Thrive In LA
Los Angeles is a German Shepherd’s paradise. Exceedingly smart, loyal, and loving, German Shepherds are companions that will make your life richer. They treat their owners with love and respect, easily following commands and listening to their owners.
The German Shepherd’s friendly disposition also makes them ideal for families with children, as German Shepherds are famous for their ability to be tender and caring towards anyone they are close with; just another example that proves canines truly are man’s best friend. For more facts and figures, Vet Street has a comprehensive overview of all the information you need to know about German Shepherds.
German Shepherds are bursting with energy, ready for whatever hike, swim, or game of fetch you plan for your day. If you need a friend to brave the great Los Angeles outdoors, then look no further. Runyon Canyon Park is an excellent place to enjoy nature with your canine companion.
Places like obstacle courses, large parks, and dog-friendly bodies of water are the best way to keep this active breed engaged and stimulated. Luckily, LA has these features in abundance. If ever you find yourself in need of equipment to train or play with your dog, stores like Blue Collar Working Dog carry products to keep your shepherd active and engaged.
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.
LA Adopters meet and learn about pets from the Guardians (owners) who know them best.
LA Veterinarians examine pets at no extra charge as a part of the pet adoption.
