DESCRIPTION:

One of the largest puppy mill busts found hundreds of German Shepherd's living in absolute filth and in horrendous condition.  Ankle deep mud and feces mixed with urine, no adequate shelter, lacking food and clean water is how these dogs were left to live, many for years.  The urgent call was made and MAGSR knew we had to take in as many as possible.  We now have 38 dogs that have a multitude of medical needs that we are addressing, and they need to learn to trust humans.  All dogs are scared, some are shut down, but our volunteers and vets will get them on their road to recovery.  It will be awhile before these dogs are ready for adoption, so please be patient and watch for updates. 

An undertaking of this size for an all-volunteer rescue is quite a task, but one we are meeting it head on.  Many of the dogs require medical boarding so that they can receive the best possible care.  We are committed to providing everything they need, not only medically, but emotionally.  Our medical costs are going to be at an amount we have never seen before.  We need your help, the dogs need your help.  Please donate , your donation will go towards their ongoing care, medical needs, emotional needs and help them on their road to recovery and a brighter future.

Update:

The GA 38 arrived in MAGSR’s care in early/mid January 2019 and over the past two months, their transformation has been nothing short of amazing. These 38 broken souls knew nothing but a life of filth, hunger, and abuse. Their eyes were filled with the look of fear, emptiness and uncertainty. They cowered in the corners of their runs and tried to be as far away from humans as possible and MAGSR volunteers knew they had quite a challenge ahead to right the wrongs of their past prior to arriving in MAGSR's care. MAGSR volunteers stepped up & took on the challenge head on. And now, two months later, through the endless work of dedicated volunteers that have selflessly given their time, patience and love, these beautiful creatures have begun to meet us with tail wags, lean-ins as we walk with them, and most importantly, where once there was emptiness and fear in their eyes, it’s clear those memories have been replaced with hope and even a bit of curiosity. Their wounds have healed, their bellies are full and they have learned that all humans aren’t so bad. They are greeting us at the front of their kennel runs now eager for treats and walks. All of them have learned to walk on a leash and we are beginning some basic obedience with them such as "sit", "heel" and “watch me.” They are now used to being handled regularly for normal things such as baths, getting their weights taken, and taking their monthly preventatives. Best of all, volunteers are seeing their unique personalities and social side come out with other dogs. Just a few months ago, they were all fighting for the same food and water and ability to stay alive but today, many have completely let down their guard and are comfortable enough to engage in play and/or positively interact with other dogs. All  of these dogs have shown us how intelligent and resilient they are and have made significant strides in their road of rehabilitation. They are ready for the next chapter of their journey and we hope you may be part of  their story.

Update:

Aubrey is settling into his foster home nicely. He is such a sweet and lovable boy! We had tummy and neck rubs after a few days. He is now looking for his foster mom and following her around the house.  He is adjusting well to his surroundings, home noise and some city noises going on his walks several times a day. He's made a lot of progress in a short period of time although it might take some time to overcome his fears.  He is patient and is learning from the resident GSD. At times he is ok with cars, runners, children, dogs passing and then at other times he just needs reassurance that it's ok.  His leash manners are getting better and he needs patience and training to improve. He is comfortable in his crate and considers it his sanctuary during the day and at bedtime. The housebreaking training is coming along just fine and is learning that outside is the place to go.  He is a smart GSD and with time and patience he will shine! He is a sweet boy and is hoping he finds his fur-ever family soon.


Update:

Aubrey is doing great in his foster home. He's enjoying his walks around the neighborhood and the park. Even though he is still wary of sudden movements and loud noises, he is so much better. Aubrey comes to his handers with enthusiasm to get his pinch collar / leash on to go outside and is learning to 'wait' at the door. He's met a few dogs and he is fine, but not always interested. He seems to have a playful personality waiting to come out. He has put his paw on his fur-sibling a few times to test the waters but even though she is a player too, she didn't seem interested but they do run around together at times in playing in the house. Aubrey’s leash manners are getting better and he’s learning to walk nicely on a leash. He’s very comfortable starting out on our walk then pulls on our way home to get home. We have an occasional tail wag and lots of requests for belly rubs. Aubrey is ready for his fur-ever home – could it be with you?

DESCRIPTION:

Werther cannot be any cuter and is absolutely a great little boy, happy go lucky and loves to give puppy kisses. Werther has a lot to learn about going a good canine citizen and will require training. Please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family - puppies are a ten to twelve year commitment. Puppies are full of energy and can be mischievous – they will whine, have accidents, get into things, and chew on inappropriate things. With time, patience, guidance and training, Werther will become even more of an amazing boy than he already is. If interested and he sounds like a good match for your family, please submit an adoption application! Werther will be available for adoption on April 20th at 8 weeks old.
