Westside German Shepherd Rescue of Los Angeles is a non profit 501(c)3, no kill rescue committed to saving
all types of German Shepherd Dogs from high kill shelters and adopting them to loving, qualified homes.


******* Pre-approved applicants only *******

Although our adoption hours remain the same, due to the COVID-19 situation, we are only showing dogs to PRE-APPROVED applicants. If you have submitted an on-line application but have not been approved by our volunteer, please do NOT come down to meet dogs as we won't be able to show you any. Our main priority right now is to keep our staff, volunteers and you healthy during these difficult times. No on-site screening at this time. Once approved and told to come meet dogs, we will be happy to help you. If you're just "shopping around", please apply at a later time. Thank you for understanding and for opening your homes to one of our deserving dogs!

Share this delightful story with your children! It teaches a very special lesson about celebrating what makes you different and turn it into an asset which helps you connect with people! Special dogs like Chloe get overlooked over and over at animal shelters and even a rescue, because people want their dogs' ears to stand up perfectly. Chloe showed us how that doesn’t matter in the slightest! The Chloes of this world teach us so much!
Just in time for the Holidays! Great gift!

CHLOE WITH THE CROOKED EARS is now available in hardcover, paperback or E-book at Amazon.com; Goodreads.com, Barnes and Noble.com; Austin Macauley Publishers USA

Charles Perry is one of the most gifted trainers we have watched work his magic over and over. He knows what the dogs are thinking and guides them and teaches them what is expected. He creates a partnership with their owners or adopters, we hear how they love learning and working with Charles as much as the dogs do!
