Legacy German Shepherd is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We have over 20 years combined rescue experience, and work to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome GSDs in LOCAL shelters. We do occasionally accept an owner surrender, but only when space permits, which is almost never. Shelter dogs come first, as they are the most urgent and our first priority. We work closely with several other local groups to try to help reduce and eliminate the over population of GSDs in the north MS/west TN area.
We require a completed application, vet reference and a home visit prior to adopting one of our dogs. This is so we can get to know you a little and know where our babies will be spending the rest of their lives. We want their next home to be their LAST home...their FOREVER home.
We also have a New England Chapter, and most of our dogs go north to loving forever homes. The northeast is miles ahead of us in education and legislation regarding the care of companion animals, and they do not have the overpopulation issues there that we have in the south. So it's a win-win situation for everyone. Obviously, the dogs win as they get out of shelters and into loving forever homes. The adopters win because you truly can't find a better pet than one that's been in a shelter and knows what it feels like to be alone, hopeless and helpless. And we as a rescue win because we get A) the satisfaction of knowing that the dog we've placed will live a happy life as a cherished family member and B) we are able to open our hearts and homes to the next needy soul.
