In July 2008 Enchanted Vista GSDs branched off into the German Shepherd Dog Rescue of Southern New Mexico.  Bob and I both work full-time jobs and we show and breed our GSDs and also take in a rescues when we don't have litters on the ground.  We are Incorporated and listed as a Charitable Organization with the State of New Mexico.  We are also Tax Exempt from Federal Income Tax under 501(c)(3).  This makes any contributions/donations tax deductible.  Our adoption fee/donation is $300.  All donations go back into the rescue for the next dog we pull. Please take a look at the rescues we have found their forever homes and the ones still looking.  If you can help one of these wonderful dogs out, please contact us.  We will work with you to get them into a loving environment.  Thank you for your interest in our wonderful rescues!

If you want to owner surrender a German Shepherd to the German Shepherd Rescue of Southern New Mexico, Inc., you need to send us an email to the rescue email address: providing pictures of the dog and a brief description of the story of why you want to surrender the dog and tell us about the dog, i.e., good with cats, good with other dogs, good with children, likes riding car, etc.  

It used to be that we had a rescue for a month, now they can be with us for up to a year before we find them a home, therefore space is limited in our rescue, so you will be placed on a waiting list.  We are a German Shepherd Rescue, therefore, registered German Shepherds will go to the top of the list.  If your German Shepherd is not registered it does not mean we will not have a space, but we do not take in those that are mixed with another breed.  It is very important that you send good pictures.  

You will be required to complete an owner surrender form and provide any medical records to us.

Unfortunately with the economy the way it is we cannot take in as many as we used to.
