Rettungs-Haus Shepherds, Inc. is a not-for-profit, volunteer-based German Shepherd Breed Specific Rescue, located in Kenosha, WI. We rescue, rehabilitate, and find placement for German Shepherds. After training, many of these dogs have gone on to serve their community by becoming one of the following: Service Dog, Therapy Dog, Search & Rescue K9, Detection K9, School Resource K9.
We evaluate each dog and place them in qualified homes based upon their temperament, drive, adaptability, and medical needs.
We have an outreach program, Operation K9 Truth for Youth. This program provides youth with volunteer and leadership opportunities within the community allowing them to accrue community services hours while working alongside our canines and trained volunteers. This partnership promotes and instills honor, compassion, value, accountability, and self-esteem within our youth.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information on this program.
Antoinette, Founder of Rettungs-Haus Shepherds, Inc., is a Professional K9 Handler with over 35 years of experience with German Shepherds who shares her passion and knowledge of the German Shepherd Breed with her dedicated youth and volunteers, in hopes that the next generation is inspired to make a difference.
