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.
Tiki is a wonderful and sweet two-year-old male whose family didn't have time for him.
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.

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
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!
We are thrilled to announced that Zeus and Pepper (now Hasso and Heidi) were adopted TOGETHER to the most wonderful home. Their story truly had a fairy tale ending!
Double the Fun
Zeus and Pepper
Double the fun! Just under two years old, Zeus and Pepper were given up due to an asthmatic family member.
Zeus is a gentle giant. At 81 pounds, he is a good 20 pounds underweight and has suffered with terrible and painful skin allergies. Our vet determined he has severe food allergies. We have adjusted his diet, he's receiving medicated baths twice weekly and is on medications. He will be one majestic boy when he's fully mended! And just as sweet as they come.
Pepper is the cutest, spunkiest little girl. She is very petite with charming floppy ears and the softest coat. She loves to play and will jump up to give kisses freely.
We are looking to place them together. They have been together since 3 months old. They are just perfect for a home with lots of love to give and plenty of room to run and play.
They have won our hearts and we are certain they will win yours, too!!

Meet Bear, the newest member of our Shepherds Hope Family. He's had a really rough start in his short life, but he won't have to worry ever again.
Hi everyone! It's Bear. I'm settling into my foster home and I thought I would give you and update on how I am doing. My tummy was a little upset last night but my foster mom comforted me and I feel much better. I also have something called a "bed." It is the most wonderful thing in the world! I can't believe how lucky I am. I've started learning about manners, too. I'm walking on leash, learning to "sit" and not jump on people. It's all new to me, but my foster mom says I'm really smart and I pick up new things quickly. But you know what the best thing is? I'm with people who love me and give me lots of attention. Oh! I almost forgot. I need to thank everyone who has donated for my care. I've never known such love. More updates later . . .
Hi! My name is Bear and I'm the newest addition to Shepherds Hope. I haven't had the best start in life but I'm safe now and ready for the future. I'm just 11 months old and I have my whole life ahead of me. I was purchased as a puppy and chained up outside a business in downtown Charlotte. My owner wanted me to "guard" the place, whatever that means. All I wanted to do was greet the people who showed up. I was so lonely! When he realized that I wasn't "doing my job", he decided he didn't want me anymore and was going to turn me loose! Fortunately, a good samaritan stepped in and called Shepherds Hope. I'm so glad they did because anything could have happened to me. I've gotten a bath and have seen the vet. I'm being neutered next week. Aren't I handsome? My foster mom says that I will be available for adoption soon. I just know my new family is out there waiting for me. Is it you?
