Heartland German Shepherd Rescue - HUGS

  • Gretna, NE

Our Story

Heartland German Shepherd Rescue (HUGS) is a Nebraska-licensed, all-volunteer, 501c3 non-profit dog rescue organization founded in May 2015.

Our focus is to save German Shepherd dogs at risk of being euthanized in shelters or other dire situations. We also try to help other German Shepherds and mixes in need, as we are able to.

While our focus is on purebred German Shepherds, after the plight of the stray dogs living in the SD reservations came to our attention we made it our mission to also help these dogs as much as possible too. These poor, forgotten pups lead extremely harsh lives, often dying due to the lack of shelter in extreme weather, the lack of food, and due to illness and injuries.

Many of them are Shepherd mixes. Many are puppies and/or moms with their litters. Many are sick or injured. And these adorable pups couldn't be more needy or deserving of our compassion and help. You can help too by opening your heart and fostering, adopting or donating.

Thank you for supporting our mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and place the dogs we rescue in permanent, loving homes.

HUGS is the epitome of a selfless, loving rescue. Caring so much about each dog, ensuring they find the perfect home.
