About Us

About Mid-Atlantic German Shepherd Rescue

Who are we? We are a group of volunteers, dedicated to rescuing and placing German Shepherds in good homes throughout the Mid-Atlantic area.

Our Mission Statement: MAGSR is dedicated to rehabilitating and providing a second chance to German shepherds and shepherd mixes that have been abandoned, abused, lost, strayed, or surrendered. Through our community outreach events around the Mid-Atlantic region, we teach and encourage responsible pet ownership and pet population control. Our all-volunteer organization works diligently to locate loving and responsible owners who wish to make their new dog(s) members of their family -- forever. MAGSR remains committed to helping end the needless overpopulation, death, abuse, and neglect of dogs in our area and in improving the lives of the dogs as well as their new owners.

If you know of a GSD who is in need of help

or who you would like to try and have placed in MAGSR's care please see our contact us page.
