Who We Are...

PayPal ButtonPayPal Button

New Beginnings Shepherd Rescue (NBSR) is a national 501c3 charitable German Shepherd Rescue

We are based in the Lowcountry of South Carolina just an hour from our beautiful beaches

NBSR was established in 2004 in honor of our founder's service dog who was such a wonderful German Shepherd that he inspired her

to do something to give back to this amazing breed...which led to the birth of New Beginnings Shepherd Rescue

We are celebrating our 19th anniversary this year! This is quite an accomplishment for a breed specific rescue

We could not have done it without the help of likeminded animal lovers like yourself

Although we wish that we were not needed to save dogs from high kill shelters across the country, we strive to continue in our mission to save our beloved breed wherever they may find themselves in harm's way


Since NBSR is now mostly foster based, we don't have a main phone number, the one that you find on the internet is NOT for the rescue so please EMAIL us at or 


If you are interested in adopting one of our amazing dogs, please fill out our adoption application

and one of our wonderful volunteers will get back to you as quickly as possible

We look forward to helping you find your new companion and family member

Skylars Scholarships DONATION FOR HARLO


"I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter...the cast-offs of human society. I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal.

And I was angry.

"God," I said, "this is terrible! Why don't you do something?"

God was silent for a moment and then He spoke softly.

                        "I have done something," He replied. "I created You"
