Hominy Valley German Shepherd Rescue

HVGSR was formally begun in April 2009, though the founder did rescue and placement for several years prior to making it official. We are located in Canton, North Carolina, which is about 25 miles West of Asheville, and we are the only AKC-recognized German shepherd breed rescue on this end of the state. We pull dogs from death row in kill shelters, and take dogs whose owners can no longer care for them and do not want to turn them in to a kill shelter. Although we are a German shepherd dog breed rescue, HVGSR also takes mixes that appear to be predominantly German shepherd in looks and temperament, and we also provide courtesy listings for people who need to find a home for their dog, but wish to keep the dog until a home can be found for it. We also provide low-cost microchipping to the public. We do not have a kennel facility, but rather rely completely on foster homes to house the dogs that we bring into our adoption program. The number of foster homes determines the

Adoption Process

For most of the dogs in our care, a securely fenced yard is a must. This is for their protection. However, not having a fenced yard is not an automatic disqualification. We evaluate on a case by case basis. If you'd like to submit an adoption application, even if we do not currently have a dog that you think will fit your needs, please send us an e-mail and we will forward you the application to fill out and send back. This way, if we are notified of a dog in need that we believe might be a good match for you based on your application, we will take and evaluate the dog for you. We keep applications for up to 90 days.
