We connect people who want to adopt or rescue a German Shepherd with people who need to rehome their German Shepherd in the San Francisco 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
Share San Francisco with a German Shepherd
German Shepherds are a highly-trainable and caring breed, making them a perfect canine companion. Bustling San Francisco is a great city for this active and intelligent breed that you’ll need to keep busy with physical and mental exercise.
Baker Beach offers a lovely landscape for adventures with your furry friend. The beach stretches a mile along the bay, passing famous landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge and Marine headlands. On the dog-friendly trails there are large rocks and paths for your dog to explore in the beautiful San Francisco air.
There are a total 28 off-leash dog parks in San Francisco, perfect for providing the energetic German Shepherds all the physical play they need. For peace of mind, visit the Eureka Valley Recreation Center or McLaren Park, which are spacious and fully fenced in.
There is so much to share with your German Shepherd in San Francisco!
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.
San Francisco Adopters meet and learn about pets from the Guardians (owners) who know them best.
