medical needs

Medical -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.

food and other donations

Your donation to our food fund is always needed and greatly appreciated. We house up to 25 dogs in our facility at any given time go through a lot of food each month. We also host about 10-20 puppies and since they are large breed they eat even more!

Since we do have so many puppies chew toys are a need and so is newspaper. You can also donate cleaning supplies for our facility as well collars, leashes, and blankets.

If you wish to donate actual bags of food, we welcome that also but please keep it grain free, chicken, beef or fish. You can always check out what brands we have on our “Amazon Wish List” too as well as check out what we need and order it directly from there!

fostering & volunteering

We are a shelter based rescue, but always in need of foster and volunteers. We are very fortunate to have our own facility for some of our rescues, but finding foster homes is necessary. Socializing dogs in a foster home before they go to their new forever home gives us the opportunity to get to know these dogs better. This, in turn, allows us to give future adopters more information before they adopt. Fostering, along with food and medical, is a major expense. When you make a donation to fostering, you help us house more dogs and in turn save more lives. You can also volunteer or foster with us!
