SHR wants to be able to help all large breed dogs brought into our rescue. We do not want to pass up a dog because it has a known medical need, we feel those that require medical attention actually need us more.
Your donations to our medical fund will help with spay/neuters, microchips, medications, special surgeries and whatever short or long term medical needs any of our dogs up for adoption may have.
It’s important to us that the person interested in adopting one of these dogs knows that SHR has done all we can to get that dog back to health.

We are a foster based rescue and always in need of foster homes which are not easy to find. We are very fortunate though to have a boarding facility that works with us. Boarding dogs before they go to their foster home or new forever home gives us the opportunity to get to know these dogs better, which in turn allows us to give future adopters more information before they adopt.
Boarding, along with food and medical, is a major expense. When you make a donation to boarding you help us house more dogs and in turn save more lives.
Food is one of SHR largest expenses, right up there with boarding and medical. Because we rescue only LARGE breed dogs, we have large appetites. Your donation to our food fund is always needed and greatly appreciated.
Our dogs in boarding (between 10 to 12 dogs at any given time) go through a lot of food each month. If you wish to
donate actual bags of food, we welcome that also but please keep it grain free, chicken, beef or fish.
