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 Philadelphia 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 Right at Home In Philly
Owning a dog in the city can seem like a challenge, but there is no better place for a furry friend than Philadelphia. With an active, intelligent, and loyal dog breed like the German Shepherd, you will always feel safe in the hustle and bustle of city life.
For an active dog, enjoy an adventure at North Brooke Canoeing and take to the water with your four-legged friend. The German Shepherd is a well-trained canine, so you won’t have to worry about them tipping the boat. They also love to swim and will enjoy a dip in the water after the ride.
There are also plenty of places to go to right in the center of Philadelphia. Enjoy the day in Rittenhouse square, a dog-friendly park in Center City, and then indulge in upscale cuisine at the Rouge. The restaurant provides bowls of water, doggy treats, and patio space for your dog to relax after fun in the park. You and your pup can indulge in a great meal together.
There’s so much to do with your German Shepherd in a dog-friendly city like Philadelphia.
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.
Philadelphia Adopters meet and learn about pets from the Guardians (owners) who know them best.
Philadelphia Veterinarians examine pets at no extra charge as a part of the pet adoption.
Pets go directly from one loving home in Philadelphia to another. Less stress. Less chance of illness or death.
