About Us

The Thulani Program is a subactivity of German Shepherd Rescue of Northern California (GSRNC) that focuses on helping German Shepherds with limited life expectancy, typically measured in months or possibly as much as a year.  Although independently run, this program is fully integrated with the much broader activities of GSRNC.

The Thulani Program has evolved since 2009 (Our History) from helping a few dogs each year during the first few year, to one in which we help about 40 new dogs each year.  We started by servicing animal shelters primarily in the greater San Francisco Bay region, but our responsibilities have expanded to include all of California and Nevada (Our Area).  This expansion has been driven primarily by the widespread need for the types of services the Thulani Program provides, and by the general lack of other organizations able to provide these services.

If you have questions or would like more information, please contact us at  ThulaniDogs@gsrnc.org

The goals of the Thulani Program are:

.

.

to rescue terminally ill German Shepherds from immediate life threatening situations at animal shelters or from other circumstances in which the dog is in immediate danger

.

.

.

.

.

.

to provide immediate medical, physical, and living-situation support in order to re-establish a quality existence for the dog

.

.

.

.

.

to provide a permanent family home for the dog in which it can live out its natural life in a warm and loving environment for as much quality life as it has left.  This home is effectively a hospice sanctuary for the German Shepherd.

    I am a senior citizen on a fixed income. Need help in covering vet expenses for my 10 year old dog to stay in my home. I was referred to you by someone who told me you have a program that helps fund vet care for seniors. If this correct? And if so do you have an application? Thank you.

    We learned about your org. via Martina Contreras, dog trainer in Redwood City.

    My son, Jackson (13 yo) and I live in a house in San Carlos. We do allot of dog-sitting and from Martina’s description and looking at your site…it may just be a perfect match — with what can work for us and also helping serve as a hospice for German Shepherds?!

    We will stay in touch.
