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.  Rettungs-Haus Shepherds, Inc. evaluates each dog and places them in qualified homes based upon their temperament, drive, adaptability, and medical needs. 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. 

If you are thinking about surrendering your dog, we urge you to please consider rehabilitation through training and our support network. 

Our outreach program, Operation K9 Truth for Youth. This program provides youth with volunteer and leadership opportunities within the community allowing them to accrue community service 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 rettungshaus@yahoo.com if you would like more information on this program. 

Operation K9

Truth for Youth

Operation K9 Truth for Youth is a program designed to teach fact from fiction regarding the bully breed nation.


In hopes of promoting volunteers to work with and alongside canines, we are dedicated to working closely with our local humane societies, and local schools. 


Our goal is to educate young people about canine behavior, proper treatment for animals in their care, shelter life, and our rescue efforts. 


"Rettungs-Haus is an inspiration to animal rescues and animal lovers everywhere and inspired me to get into rescue more deeply. 


Rettungs-Haus is dedicated  to the shepherd breed and is by far the best for miles around.  Their care and compassion for animals are balanced with the strong leadership and experience with training and rehabilitation.

"LEARN FROM THE BEST!"  I started my journey with GSD’s over 30 years ago, and thought I knew about them. It wasn’t until I became affiliated with Rettungs-Haus. I realized how little I did know. The love and passion for the breed is unrivaled. I had read about Rettungs-Haus online and felt this was something I wanted to be part of. 

I was not disappointed! At this point I knew I wanted one of Rettungs-Haus GSD’s.
