Hi there!

Welcome to Grace Mercy Love German Shepherd Rescue!
We are a registered 501(c)(3) German Shepherd rescue in the Houston/Katy area with over 40 years of combined rescue experience. We help all injured, abandoned, and aim to save dogs from being unnecessarily euthanized. While specializing in German Shepherds, we are working towards educating the public on microchipping, spaying/neutering, heartworm treatment and prevention, and many other pet needs. We are working to build partnerships with other rescues and work tirelessly to assist in the overcrowding of shelters while placing these precious animals into loving forever homes.

    positive review  This group is awesome. I had a stray German Shepherd that had her 5 puppies under my house. They came out and brought everything they would need for me to keep them until they found a foster home for them. I'm so very thankful for this wonderful group. Thanks again. The momma will always be in my heart.

  • 5 star review  I saw Rosie, now known as Roxy Rose , on FB, and instantly fell in love � Everyone that I had the pleasure of working with, were instrumental in arranging this adoption. I have had her for 2 weeks today, and she’s doing great! She has gained 5.5 lbs since 9/11, (from 35 to 40.5) and she sits, lays down, shakes, walks well on a leash, stops and sits at crosswalks. Thank you Grace Mercy Love rescue for this beautiful little girl, that fit so well into our pack! ��� #adoptionsuccess

During the 2019 Texas Legislative Session, more than 25,000 Texans wrote and called and signed petitions in support of legislation to require adequate shelter for dogs across Texas to protect them from the blazing hot and freezing cold weather, and to prohibit the use of heavy chains. More than 200 Texans traveled to Austin from across the state to register their support for companion bills SB 295 by Senator Eddie Lucio and HB 940 by Representative Sarah Davis.

SB 295 sailed through the Senate before reaching the House floor late last night. Before debate could even begin, Representative Jonathan Stickland (Bedford) raised a Point of Order on the bill, killing it. To say we are frustrated and heartbroken is an understatement. Calling the point of order was a casual cruelty, committed in a matter of minutes. The result of the point of order? The hours, days, months and years that animal advocates, rescuers, and kind-hearted people will again have to devote to helping dogs tied down with heavy chains, exposed to extreme weather, often dying from neglect.

We feel the burden of this failure deeply, knowing the future holds hours of continued suffering for dogs across Texas, and due to the lack of a clear enforcement mechanism – the very thing this bill would have fixed - there will again be nothing that can be done to help them. This may have been politics inside the Capitol, but outside in the real world, a love for animals unites people from both parties, from all walks of life, from all parts of Texas, and we will not stop our efforts to end animal cruelty. In the days to come, we’ll post the members who supported the bill so they can be thanked, and we’ll regroup and relaunch. We can’t afford to let this slow us down – we know the animals of Texas depend on all of us, together.
