Welcome to Grace Mercy Love German Shepherd Dog Rescue!

We are a newly formed 501(c)(3) rescue in the Houston 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.

Happy December 1st!

Meet Jesse! Jesse is 10 months old and just as sweet as can be! He’s a little timid and still getting his bearings, but he is fantastic with dogs, kids and people! He’s a typical shadow dog and would love to find his furever home!

If you’re interested in applying for Jesse please apply here.

*Augie is a sweet boy that was rescued over the weekend. Today, he was taken to an ER vet to be examined after his foster came home and found he had bloody diarrhea. Thankfully, Augie has been given medication and is waiting for bloodwork results at home.

*Daisy Mae was also rescued this weekend. Because of her severe anemia and dehydration, she also visited an ER to become stable.

*Balto has ongoing medical issues and is on certain medications and requires specialized food and probiotics.
