Welcome to Shepherds Hope Rescue

 

 

 

REBEL 

Say hello to the latest member of the Shepherds Hope pack - Rebel.      He was at the top of the euthanasia list in a rural southern shelter because of a leg injury.   He is just the sweetest most wiggly boy and although we were not taking any new dogs at this time, we just couldn't let this happen.  The wonderful folks at the shelter were trying so hard to get rescue placement for him, but everyone is full.  They were cheering when they found out we were going to help.  As of today, December 2nd, he's out of the shelter and on the way to his foster home.
First order of business will be to get him to the vet.  He has a badly injured leg which will most likely require surgery.  He is also heartworm positive and not neutered.  
We are so grateful to those who have already donated for his medical care already, but donations are still very muc needed.  Don't worry sweet boy, your new life is just beginning!  More updates to come.............................

  We need your Help!

 

We at Shepherds Hope Rescue desperately need the help of our wonderful friends and supporters.  We have just taken in two wonderful dogs, both owner surrenders, both not spayed or neutered and needing medical attention before we can find them their new forever family.

 

 

 

Dolly is a beautiful one-year-old red sable shepherd who was abandoned and tied to a tree in someone's backyard with a note that said they couldn't take care of her anymore.   A friend contacted us and we just couldn't say no, afraid she might fall into the wrong hands.

And a heartbreaking story of  our beloved Bear, who frequently has shown up on our FB site, needs a new home because his beloved owner is very ill and can't take care of him.  We are so devastated for both Bear and his owner.  We now have Bear in our care and looking for another loving home for him.

The medical, housing and transport expenses for these wonderful dogs have put a huge burden on our already slim resources.  By opening your heart you will help us help these amazing dogs and continue to help other shepherds in need.  Please make a donation today, the dogs are counting on you.  

 

God bless you all.

Mavrick

 

 

 

Update: 7/15/2016

We are so proud of our Mavrick who is now an official K-9 of the Philadelphia Police Department.  We congratulate Mavrick and his handler Officer O'Brien for their hard work and dedication.  We wish you a long and happy career together and we pray for your safety.  Way to go Mav!!!  

Make us proud.  

 

 

       

AFTER:  Mav with his new family                    BEFORE: Mav wandering the streets

 

Update 3/28/2016.  Mavrick is doing great during his second week of class.  He is already caught up on his obedience training.  We'll keep you posted.  Go Mavrick, we are rooting for you!

 

 

So begins the latest adventure!    Mavrick was found dragging a heavy chain and ended up at a rural shelter in North Carolina with next to no options of being adopted.  German shepherds are not put on the adoption floor and require a rescue to take them.  No one came to claim him.  

 

After being at the shelter for a few days, the staff saw his crazy energy level and said 'this boy needs a job'.  They contacted us and we went to go and take a look.  As sick as Mavrick was with horrible kennel cough, he was raring to go.  Hung off a towel and almost shredded it, wouldn't give up a ball or squeaky toy for even the most tasty treat.   He's now with his foster mom and upon completion of his isolation, he will be transported and going into K-9 training class with Philadelphia's finest.  Please send up some good thoughts and prayers for our boy.   He is being treated for his kennel cough, will be neutered and we're working on his transport.  

 

Mavrick hopes a few angels will step forward and donate to help make this possible.  Although we've been bogged down with medical and special food costs for Zeus, we just couldn't let this opportunity pass by for Mav.  

 

We'll keep you posted.

 UPDATE 3/19/2016.  After a 9 1/2 hour drive today, Mavrick is now with the Philly K-9 unit.  What a brave and sweet boy he is.  Here is Mavrick at the halfway point and is waiting for his pickup to start the beginning of his new adventure. We are soooooooooooo rooting for you, our boy.  We know you will make us proud!
