Shepherd Haven provides a lifeline to German Shepherd Dogs with stable temperaments facing euthanasia in shelters throughout Ohio. We are a nonprofit, home-based group in the central Ohio area. Recently, we have helped find homes for some Labradors and small breed dogs, like Chihuahuas, Bichons and Chinese Cresteds. Our dogs come from area shelters or are owner surrenders.
We make every attempt to place each pet in the best possible home for him/her, therefore, they are NOT placed on a "first come, first served" basis. We are not a 501(c)3 organization, but are getting ready to start that process very soon. For now, we are a group of people, including our founder, Kathy, with a love and a passion for German Shepherds and dogs, in general. We have been very blessed with several families to help us save these lost hearts.
Adopting a friend... we do have great German Shepherds and small breed dogs in need of homes and are taking applications! Please visit our adoption requirements page for details and an adoption application.
We are in great need for volunteers to join our organization. Of course our biggest demand is for individuals who can provide foster homes for our dogs; but we need all types of volunteers to contribute in very important ways. Please call or email us for more information on how you can help.
