Poor Meadow was languishing at a public animal shelter with no one stopping at her cage. She looked like an alien creature from another planet. No one wanted a puppy with medical needs–everyone shook their heads and walked away. Even though Meadow probably isn’t a German Shepherd, her courage and spirit under extreme circumstances earned her a place in our rescue.

Meadow has demodectic mange, a treatable condition that will require a series of medicated baths and antibiotics. She is extremely “itchy” and uncomfortable right now, but we’ve started her regimen of care to give her relief. Our prediction is that Meadow will be a medium-large girl, probably a lab/shep combo. We are desperately seeking donations to help with the high costs of her veterinary care–if everyone gives a small amount, no one will be burdened with a huge expense. Can you make a gift in any amount to help Meadow feel better?

UPDATE 5/4/07
We are thrilled with the progress that Meadow has made in her loving foster home! Her coat is much improved and her disposition is unbelievably sweet. Meadow is done with her medical treatments & is ready to be a normal happy dog. Everyone who meets Meadow wants to scoop her up and cuddle her, something that Meadow is happy to oblige! The fur on her face is beginning to return, and the open sores have healed up. Please come and meet our precious Meadow–we promise this little imp will win you over with her smile!

Home Visit Prior to any dog going home, we do require a home visit to ensure that your environment is safe and secure. Once your home has been approved, the adoption can move forward.

Adoption Donation

  • Adult GSDs: $395
  • Purebred GSD Puppies: $495
  • Mixed GSD Puppies: $395
  • Special Senior-to-Senior Adoptions: $295
This donation is tax-deductible as allowed by law and helps to offset the costs that we have incurred for the dog’s care and housing during his or her stay with our group. The minimum adoption donation does not entirely cover the investments that we have made in the dogs, so if you are in a position to give more, we would be honored to receive your additional donation. All adoption donations go directly toward the needs of our dogs.

All dogs adopted through GSROC are spayed or neutered, current on their vaccines and de-wormed. Because the minimum Adoption Donation rarely covers the costs associated with each dog, we ask that adopters who are in a position to give additional funds do so at their discretion.
