Welcome to the Mid-Atlantic German Shepherd Rescue!  

We are a non-profit rescue dedicated to German Shepherds and German Shepherd mixes. If you are looking to add a new family member to your loving home in the Mid-Atlantic area, please visit the Adoption page.

We have dedicated 20 years to helping our dogs find homes with over 4,200 adoptions since 1999!

Help us make that number much higher:  Adopt, Foster, Donate, Volunteer.

MAGSR is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity, so your gifts are tax deductible.

If your employer matches charitable contributions please ask them for the form to send to MAGSR so you gift can be matched, effectively doubling your donation.

MAGSR needs your help to care for our Senior, Medical, and Special Needs Dogs.

This poor angel needs our help.

Valentina was seized from a prior owner with what was thought was an embedded collar and a broken leg. Well, it turns out this poor baby did have a broken leg, but the wounds on her neck weren't caused by an embedded collar, but a dog attack! 

Valentina has endured great hardship in her young life. She is a gentle, loving young pup who just wants to be healthy with a family to love.

Read Valentina's story, follow her progress and donate to her care here.
