Our Adoptable Dogs

Are you interested in opening your heart and home to one of our adoptable dogs?  Click on the “Meet our Adoptable Dogs” button below to see our dogs who are wishing for their forever family.

Adopt-Dont ShopWhen you adopt a dog from RAGS we work with you to assure that the process of your new dog’s integration into your family takes place as smoothly as possible.  Each happy adoption makes it possible for us to rescue another wonderful German Shepherd dog who may otherwise face the end of its life alone and unloved in a shelter.

If you don’t find a dog that appeals to you on our “Adoptable Dogs” page, we usually have dogs who are getting  ready for adoption and may be able to help you find one that fits in with your family and lifestyle.

“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring–it was peace.” – Milan Kundera, Author

What people are saying about RAGS

What a wonderful organization to work with.  They blessed me with a wonderful GSD.  Her name is Mindy.  She has brought joy to our family.  RAGS really cares and works hard at finding the best home for every dog that comes into their rescue.  Thank you RAGS!!!

RAGS did a great job in pairing our family with Harley.  We were looking to get a second dog to compliment our hyper 6 month puppy, Nakita.  For our home visit Sue brought the dog we were interested in adopting and Harley because she thought he might also be a good fit.  We realized quickly Harley was the perfect fit for us.  We couldn’t be happier with our choice and decision to adopt through RAGS.  Thanks again.

I was fortunate enough to be connected with RAGS when living in Milwaukee. While working at there facility and in training classes I met Dexter. Dexter was one of the first CGC certified dogs in the RAGS family. Sue took a stray from Kentucky had him brought to Milwaukee trained him and made him adoptable. I can’t say enough about the unconditional love that RAGS has toward their dogs. Dexter has been a part of our family for about four years now and we could not have asked for a better companion/son.
