Since 2002, Westside German Shepherd Rescue of Los Angeles (WGSR) has saved more than 7,000 dogs and placed them into loving, adoptive homes.
WGSR is a 501(c)3 non-profit and no-kill animal welfare organization committed to saving all types of German shepherd dogs and mixes from high kill shelters and adopting them to qualified homes throughout the U.S. and Canada.
We have approximately 50 active volunteers, around 200 occasional volunteers, 130+ dogs housed at any one time in three boarding facilities; and 65+ puppies and dogs fostered in family homes throughout the LA metropolitan area.
Our work is 100% funded by adoption fees and donations, so volunteers play an essential role in every aspect of our rescue work. Our expenses total $55,000 or more per month for food, boarding, veterinary care, office rent and supplies, insurance, and transportation.
Please donate or join Team Westside to save even more lives.
