Our Rehoming Program

The GSDCV, via our Rehoming program can facilitate in finding homes for German Shepherd Dogs. We are NOT a rescue organisation, but a rehoming service. The Rehoming Coordinators are only able to provide details of people who have dogs that need rehoming. They can NOT take your dog

Information in relation to dogs needing homes is provided and negotiation of adoption arrangements is the responsibility of those who have a dog that needs rehoming and the person(s) wishing to rehome that dog. Animals for rehoming are on a ‘referral’ basis only i.e. The owner of the dog, and the person interested in adopting the dog, are put in contact with each other. We take no responsibility in the decision or choice of the owner giving up their animal to other persons who may provide the dog with a home.

FEES: If you offer to provide a new home for an available dog, there is an administration fee of $50, payable by you as the ‘new’ owner of the dog. If you currently own a GSD that you wish to find a new home for using the rehoming service, an administration fee of $50 applies, payable by yourself as the current owner

Simba & Nala

We have two black and tan seven year old dogs seeking new homes. The male Simba and female Nala are currently in kennels having been surrendered by their previous owner. Both are friendly dogs, in good health, although Nala will need some ongoing treatment for an elbow. Neither has been around children or cats so would best be in a household of adults with no cats or other small animals. They don’t appear to have any vices, but would benefit from some obedience training. Both are microchipped, vaccinated and neutered.

If you feel you could offer a new home to either or both of these dogs please ring Sylvia on 0407 362 319 or email on spower@dogsvictoria.org.au
