Volunteer with TSGSR

Here is how to get started…

TSGSR is a group of volunteers whose mission is rescuing homeless senior German Shepherd Dogs (GSDs) and finding them new “forever” adoptive homes. Since the TSGSR organization is 100% staffed by volunteers we rely on people joining our team and helping us save dogs.

Foster Home Volunteers
A Foster Home Volunteer provides a rescued Thulani Dog with a home until a “forever” adoptive home can be found. This is of key importance because every new foster home allows TSGSR to rescue at least one more dog.

If you would like to consider becoming a TSGSR Foster Home please fill out and submit our Foster Application.
