German Shepherd Rescue

German Shepherd and Belgian Malinois Rescue

Serving Montana, Washington, Idaho and Wyoming

Our goal is to match the right dog with the right family. We are often able to help coordinate logistics if you are interested in a dog that is not in your immediate area.

Mission Statement: To find caring, loving, permanent homes for surrendered, abandoned or neglected dogs and puppies. Montana German Shepherd Rescue hopes to ease the problem of the population overflow occuring in many of our shelters today.

We educate the individual on the importance of sterilizing the pet and providing superior care. We are composed of a network of foster families and are in need of finding more foster care providers with the time and commitment to provide care for these animals in transition.

We also are in need of people to provide transportation for these animals. We are an ALL-VOLUNTEER rescue. ANY DONATIONS are greatly appreciated and will help a GSD find it's forever home or feed a friend in need.

Make Your Donations Today through GoFundMe. It's completely secure and you will help dogs in need at our facilities.

We need things such as dog beds, x-large, quality dog food, leashes, stainless steel bowls, rugs for crates, and of course donations of money towards vet bills for spay/neuters, shots, etc.


If anyone is trying to reach MTGSDR through the email it is down, the webmaster has not renewed the security certificate, so I can't get on...please email for any contact...including the adoption application. I cannot respond to any contact here, I am NOT GETTING THE ONLINE ADOPTION APPLICATIONS HERE!!! Thanks for your understanding...Steph » read more


CROSSPOSTING for a friend, where the rescue that adopted this dog out refuses to take him back :-( ...~~"Bishop is a healthy 6 yr old German Shepherd. He has been living on an acreage for the past four years where he vigilantly watches out for deer and squirrels. He is great on a leash and at the kennel. He is very friendly with strangers, and while he barks when someone comes to the door, he makes friends instantly and more than once has tried to hop in their car when they leave. Bishop does not enjoy situations where other dogs are uncontrolled, but he has functioned very well at dog obedience classes and other environments where owners manage their dogs correctly. He has a strong prey drive and would do best as an only pet." Please fill out our online application and I will forward to the owners. » read more

Duke-STOLEN by Pam Zachritz heading to Chicago area-Help!!!

Duke was stolen by  Pam Zachritz of the Chicago area. Pam has a prior arrest for STEALING another dog, please crosspost wide and far, to stop this from happening again. She did adopt Murh the Malinois, came out here to Montana for a vacation at my home, and pick Murph up, but took it upon herself to take Duke also, knowing that he was being adopted the day after she took him...please help us locate and return Duke. She also stole other MTGSD property, including original dog files for the dogs and for a dog she doesn't have, a wire crate and other MTGSD property... The Sheriff is working on the case also. Duke would make someone a great Personal Protection Dog. with the correct training. Duke is a 2 yr old AKC Registered male. He needs an experienced adopter and continued obedience training. He is a dominant dog and needs socialization. Great in the house, and loves to go for rides in the car. He is VERY protective so no small kids or cats. » read more
