VGSR is in constant search for resources to pay for necessary and expensive treatments that many rescue dogs need. These are our "Special Needs" foster dogs. Sidney, shown right, is one such dog. She came into rescue 2/26/10 at 46#'s and gravely ill with only hours left to live and was immediatley taken by volunteers to the hospital. Rapid response saved her life; Sidney is on the road to full recovery - she still NEEDS YOUR HELP.

Lilly, shown left, is another one of the "Special Needs" dogs in VGSR care that needs more attention. She came into rescue abused, neglected, in pain and VERY pregnant. Her immediate needs were met and in the loving care of a volunteer foster, gave birth to 10 beautiful, healthy puppies. Lilly showed some discomfort in her hips and x-rays showed what appears to be a pellet or bullet fragment. Surgery had to wait until her pups were weaned and she was strong enough to have the procedure. Lilly is now ready to have the hip repaired and she NEEDS YOUR HELP.

The Third Annual Virginia German Shepherd Rescue Golf Tournament & Auction will provide funding to help these dogs and many others to fulfill their potential to be strong, healthy and loving dogs ready to be adopted into their "forever homes".

How can you help? Be a player, be a sponsor, donate an item to the auction, join us for dinner, take part in the auction. VGSR is an all volunteer, 501 (c)(3) corp and all proceeds go directly to the mission of rescue, rehabilitation and re homing of dogs in our care.

Please go to our website and meet the many dogs who are benefiting from your support. Guaranteed, you will see how important YOU are to rescue!
