     Love In Action - Restoring Hope for German Shepherds
              an IRS 501(c)3 non-profit organization

We love to report success stories and celebrate each one.  But in 2018 we officially declared an epidemic is underway.  Every single month we had large increases in the number of pleas we got to take in GSDs.  And with 2019 well under way, it's continuing to get worse and worse.  The horrendous puppy mill bust in Georgia of 450 GSDs is the tip of the iceberg.  Expect more horrors to come to light in 2019.

EPIDEMIC - crated GSDs at event


We tried to tough it out in the first half of 2018, hoping the deluge was temporary.  But we finally had to face the truth:  unwanted and homeless GSDs are dying by the thousands in the U.S.   Every month the number of homeless GSDs keeps growing. 

In January 2018 requests to take in dogs started to skyrocket.  By May we got more than 30 requests each month.  By August, it grew to 50-80 requests each month.  In just one 48-hour period, we got 13 requests. And 2019 is not slowing down.

EPIDEMIC - gsd cowers in cage

And it’s not just MOGS.  Shelters and groups in California and Texas have organized massive efforts to send hundreds of their GSDs to others around the U.S.  A South Dakota shelter called desperately looking for rescue for a big male – they had already tried rescues in Colorado, Minnesota, Nebraska, Iowa only to be told the same thing by everyone:  “We’re overwhelmed, we’re overflowing, you can try us again later.”   A vet in central Kansas told us, “So it's not just us? We feel like we’re failing the german shepherds here. At least now we know why.” 


All GSD lovers need to step up. DO SOMETHING.  ANYTHING.  NOW. 
Tomorrow is too late. 
Many dogs will be out of time by then.
They will leave this world unloved, unwanted, terrified, in pain.

We don’t have all the answers, but here are a few things you can do RIGHT NOW:

  • Spread the word about the epidemic
  • Educate everyone you meet 
  • Constantly talk to friends, family, neighbors, co-workers and people you do business with about responsible pet ownership and lifetime commitments
  • Become a Dog Champion.  Be shameless for the dogs
  • Volunteer to go to a classroom and educate the kids
  • Donate your time, your leadership, your financial support, your home
  • Foster a dog
  • Sponsor a dog
  • Help train or rehab dogs -- a friend's dog, your own, a GSD in rescue
  • Check out rescues, find one you like, get ACTIVELY involved.  Accept a job with the rescue.  Who do you think will do it if you don’t?
  • Volunteer at a local rescue. Be willing to do whatever they need (not just what you enjoy) 
  • Walk dogs that rescues have in boarding 
  • Take in a dog off Craig’s List or your local swap-n-shop, rehab him, and find him a good home. 
  • Don’t expect rescues to do it all, without your help
  • Walk some of our boarded dogs
  • Tell us you’d like to learn how to train and/or rehab dogs and let us train you
  • Never give up!!!  Never get tired of spreading the word, volunteering, supporting, donating – the dogs can’t afford for us to give up
