Val’s Pals German Shepherd & Large Paw Rescue


We are a 501c3 Non-Profit organization working as a team consisting of volunteers who share a passion for saving the lives of homeless, unwanted, neglected and abused dogs. Our main focus is on Seniors, Medical Cases and Abused German Shepherds. We also handle other Large and Mix Breeds, those with medical issues and some often deemed “hard to adopt.” We work tirelessly to get the necessary medical treatments and rehabilitation these dogs need to where they are adoptable. We maintain a very thorough adoption process including reference checks and home visits to ensure each of our dogs are placed with the right family.
