Freedom German Shepherd Rescue

Rolesville, NC


Freedom German Shepherd Rescue strives to transform the lives of homeless, abandoned, neglected and abused German Shepherds and German Shepherd mixes by placing them with loving and nurturing temporary foster families. We will provide all of the necessary medical care, food, and basic training to ensure they become healthy, well integrated family members. Once the dogs are medically and behaviorally cleared, the rescue’s goal is to place them with their rigorously approved furever families. Our mission is also to educate the greater community on the epidemic of pet overpopulation, unreputable breeding, the challenges homeless, abandoned, neglected, and abused dogs face as well as topics to help keep their current dogs safe and healthy.
