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
