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 Miami-Dade area.
What We Do
Direct rescue & adoption of pets, from one good home to another. Rehoming a German Shepherd keeps them out of shelters.

Miami: A Big City for Your German Shepherd
One great thing about owning a dog like a German Shepherd is the security they can provide. Bred as a guard dog for sheep, these highly intelligent dogs are trainable and active. They require plenty of physical and mental stimulation, but if you’re up to it, they are the perfect companion in Miami!
German Shepherds offer an undying loyalty to their owner, along with an appetite for fun and play that is never quenched. South Beach offers quite a lot for an active, larger dog like the German Shepherd. Read more about what makes German Shepherds a great dog to adopt here.
There are dog parks in Miami that specialize their grounds for larger dogs, like Washington Big Dog Park, where your German Shepherd can run on long trails, and drink from fountains while you take in the setting from one of the many park benches.
Miami also offers a great array of dog-friendly beaches for your German Shepherd to run on, take a dip, and use up some of their never-ending energy! If you and your dog both want a unique experience, try Hobie Beach just outside of Miami, where you can try your hand at wind surfing and your German Shepherd can play with other dogs on the shoreline.
There are plenty activities in Miami for these big dogs to take in, so don’t be afraid to make a German Shepherd a new addition to your family 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.
Miami Adopters meet and learn about pets from the Guardians (owners) who know them best.
Miami Veterinarians examine pets at no extra charge as a part of the pet adoption.
