Note: I no longer have the time to update this page with dogs available at the shelters listed below. However, most of the links to the shelters' Websites and phone numbers are still current.

The best way that I know of to search for a German Shepherd (or any other breed of dog) at a shelter is through the Website www.petharbor.com.  You can sign up for a free 30-day e-mail "subscription" to Petharbor, whereby you will receive daily listings of your specified breed (if present) at the shelters you have specified. Petharbor.com is also an excellent way to monitor specific shelters for a dog you have lost.  Please click here for directions on how to subscribe to Petharbor.com's free shelter animal search feature.

Also, please see the "Shelter Dogs" page of German Shepherd Rescue of Northern California's Website.

Check it out periodically if you're looking for a GSD, another breed of dog, or a cat!

There are almost always one or more nice purebred German Shepherds or GSD mixes available for adoption from the Sac County shelter. In addition to the Website maintained by the county shelter (http://www.saccountyshelter.net),  TEAM (Teaching Everyone Animals Matter) maintains a Website of some of the dogs available for adoption at the County shelter: http://www.sacanimalshelter.org/dogs.htm. Please call the shelter with a dog's ID number to see if it is still available before going to the shelter.
