German Shepherd Rescue of Sacramento Valley

Our Pet List

Who We Are

German Shepherd Rescue of Sacramento Valley (GSRSV) is an independent organization dedicated to finding good homes for German Shepherds and German Shepherd mixes whose owners can no longer keep them or which are confined in animal shelters. My selection of dogs is limited due to the fact that I (Brian Foran) run and fund this organization by myself. I am always seeking foster caretakers. If you are looking for a wider selection of purebred German Shepherds, please visit the Websites for German Shepherd Rescue of Northern California or Greater California German Shepherd Rescue.

My Adoption Process

My adoption process is spelled out on the page of my own Website ( titled "How to Adopt a Dog through GSRSV." Included on that page is my adoption questionnaire, which I need to have you fill out before I can place a dog with you. Please visit my Website for the information you need.

Effective 7-18-09, my adoption fees are as follows:.

Purebred GSDs: under 1 yr, $300; 1-3 yrs, $250; 4-7 yrs, $225; 8-10 yrs, $175; 11 yrs and older, $125.

GSD Mixes and Non-GSDs: under 1 yr, $250; 1-3 yrs, $225; 4-7 yrs, $200; 8-10 yrs, $150; 11 yrs and older, $100.

My adoption fee includes spaying/neutering, heartworm testing, rabies and distemper/parvo vaccinations, and a 6-month supply of heartworm preventative.

Some of the dogs that I have available are presently with their owners or rescuers, but I am placing them through my adoption program. I refer to these as "Program Dogs." The same adoption process and adoption fee apply to these dogs as to those in GSRSV's custody, and the same 2-week money-back guarantee and lifetime take-back policy also apply. 

Please Make a Donation to GSRSV!

Since February 2001, Brian Foran has funded GSRSV primarily on his own. Donations have played--and continue to play--a huge part in keeping GSRSV afloat, as adoption fees are a drop-in-the-bucket compared with the costs of running a large rescue program.
