DESCRIPTION:

One of the largest puppy mill busts found hundreds of German Shepherd's living in absolute filth and in horrendous condition.  Ankle deep mud and feces mixed with urine, no adequate shelter, lacking food and clean water is how these dogs were left to live, many for years.  The urgent call was made and MAGSR knew we had to take in as many as possible.  We now have 38 dogs that have a multitude of medical needs that we are addressing, and they need to learn to trust humans.  All dogs are scared, some are shut down, but our volunteers and vets will get them on their road to recovery.  It will be awhile before these dogs are ready for adoption, so please be patient and watch for updates. 

An undertaking of this size for an all-volunteer rescue is quite a task, but one we are meeting it head on.  Many of the dogs require medical boarding so that they can receive the best possible care.  We are committed to providing everything they need, not only medically, but emotionally.  Our medical costs are going to be at an amount we have never seen before.  We need your help, the dogs need your help.  Please donate , your donation will go towards their ongoing care, medical needs, emotional needs and help them on their road to recovery and a brighter future.

Update:

The GA 38 arrived in MAGSR’s care in early/mid January 2019 and over the past two months, their transformation has been nothing short of amazing. These 38 broken souls knew nothing but a life of filth, hunger, and abuse. Their eyes were filled with the look of fear, emptiness and uncertainty. They cowered in the corners of their runs and tried to be as far away from humans as possible and MAGSR volunteers knew they had quite a challenge ahead to right the wrongs of their past prior to arriving in MAGSR's care. MAGSR volunteers stepped up & took on the challenge head on. And now, two months later, through the endless work of dedicated volunteers that have selflessly given their time, patience and love, these beautiful creatures have begun to meet us with tail wags, lean-ins as we walk with them, and most importantly, where once there was emptiness and fear in their eyes, it’s clear those memories have been replaced with hope and even a bit of curiosity. Their wounds have healed, their bellies are full and they have learned that all humans aren’t so bad. They are greeting us at the front of their kennel runs now eager for treats and walks. All of them have learned to walk on a leash and we are beginning some basic obedience with them such as "sit", "heel" and “watch me.” They are now used to being handled regularly for normal things such as baths, getting their weights taken, and taking their monthly preventatives. Best of all, volunteers are seeing their unique personalities and social side come out with other dogs. Just a few months ago, they were all fighting for the same food and water and ability to stay alive but today, many have completely let down their guard and are comfortable enough to engage in play and/or positively interact with other dogs. All  of these dogs have shown us how intelligent and resilient they are and have made significant strides in their road of rehabilitation. They are ready for the next chapter of their journey and we hope you may be part of  their story.


Update:

Unfortunately, Alger tested heartworm positive when seen by MAGSR's vet in July when MAGSR decided to test all the GA dogs again because heartworm takes 6 months to show up on the bloodtest. This could have been avoided had he been kept on monthly heartworm preventatives prior to coming to MAGSR. Alger is in the beginning stages of his heartworm treatment, which of course MAGSR will pay for her entire treatment. Treatment is expensive, but Alger is certainly worth the cost. Donations towards his treatment would be greatly appreciated, this would also help us save other dogs with medical needs. He will have to take it slow for the next few months while he undergoes treatment, so lots of rest will be in order.

Update:

Luther is settling in to his experienced foster home. Luther, like the other GA38 dogs, is not well socialized with people. Luther remains very anxious about anything new in his environment. Although he is no longer scared of the resident dogs, he rarely interacts with them and is fearful of the activity. Luther feels most safe in his crate – it is his “security blanket” and prefers to spend a good bit of time in there. He allows humans to interact with and touch him, but is nervous about it. Luther has not yet felt confident enough to voluntarily approach humans to interact, but hopefully, that will come in time. Luther is considered a high flight risk dog. Luther has had some field trips to a local group training class which is helping him to work on his confidence. Luther would do best in a quiet home with a consistent routine, preferably with a high fenced yard, no children and not a lot of activity. If Luther sounds like he may be a fit for your home, ask to meet him.

DESCRIPTION:

Riptide was originally adopted from a shelter, where he then went on to live his life on a chain with not enough food and no shelter.  This is why it is so important that anyone wanting to adopt a dog is checked out by shelters and rescues.  Riptide was promised a better a life when the shelter adopted him but that is not what he received.  That is all changed now that he is with MAGSR, we will make sure he finds a loving and caring family, that can provide him a home, a comfy bed, good nutrition and care.  Riptide's name is very fitting, he is a high energy boy that is not sure what to do with new found freedom from the chain.  He will need training and structure, along with lots of exercise.  

Update:

Unfortunately, Riptide has been returned to us as his adopter fractured her ankle and is non weight bearing.  With Riptide’s high energy, she was not able to provide his daily exercise requirements.  Riptide was also not doing well with one of their teenage twin daughters.  He was fine with one of them.  He has been to obedience training, but his new family is required to complete training with him.  Training is a great way to learn more about each other, how to work together and create a bond.
