Westside German Shepherd Rescue of Los Angeles is a non profit 501(c)3, no kill rescue committed to saving
all types of German Shepherd Dogs from high kill shelters and adopting them to loving, qualified homes.

All our puppies are in foster homes getting lots of love and socializing to help them transition easily into their new homes. To meet puppies in their foster homes, start with an on-line application.

We have almost 100 dogs in our kennel, we require an application first so we can show you dogs who might be right for your home. We know our dogs and once we get to know you better, we can help you select your next family member!

Did you know donating a crate can help save a life! It can help transport a dog safely to a new home , it can keep a dog in his new home until he or she realizes their new parents haven’t abandoned them but coming back home to them! It is a wonderful tool and money well spent to save precious lives!

Please see sizes below. ( we need 36" & 40" mainly) A few links below where you can buy these crates.

Charles Perry is one of the most gifted trainers we have watched work his magic over and over. He knows what the dogs are thinking and guides them and teaches them what is expected. He creates a partnership with their owners or adopters, we hear how they love learning and working with Charles as much as the dogs do!    Charles is part of a new program called, Halfway Home, which has been partially funded by a Pedigree Grant. Charles works through issues newly arriving dog might have that need to be addressed before they go to foster homes or permanent homes! Charles also does private training. Cttobedience@gmail.com
