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.

Hi! My name is Piper. I am about 8-9 weeks old and in good shape, according to the vet. I just got to my foster home but it suits me pretty well. They have a puppy pool that I like to jump in and big dogs that I chase around the yard. Since I am so young, I have lots of energy but did you know they give treats to sit and to go in the kennel? I am learning quick that I loooove treats. I don't really like going in the kennel but I am sleeping through the night. Are you ready for a cute, new puppy?

GML Family, Balto needs your PRAYERS 🙏 We pulled him from the shelter on Friday and he had to go directly to the vet for immediate care! While at the shelter, we know he lost 10lbs, which he could not afford to loose. He is having an EXTREMELY difficult time breathing as he has a sever case of pneumonia 😥 He also has SEVERAL other infections. His minimum vet bill will be $4000. WE need your help covering his expenses. HE needs your PRAYERS as everything that is going on in his VERY malnourished, emaciated body is taking a toll. When we gave him his freedom ride, we gave our word that we will do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING for him. He is 7-9 years old and DESERVES to enjoy his latter years. Our volunteers that rescued him and visit him say he is just the sweetest boy, IN SPITE of the way he feels 💙
No donation is too small, thank you in advance for helping us help HIM 💞
