Heartland German Shepherd Rescue (HUGS) is a Nebraska-licensed, all-volunteer, 501c3 non-profit dog rescue organization founded in May 2015. We operate out of the Omaha, Nebraska area. Our focus is to save German Shepherd dogs at risk of being euthanized in shelters or other dire situations. We also try to help other German Shepherds and mixes in need, as we are able to. While our focus is on purebred German Shepherds, after the plight of the stray dogs living in the SD reservations came to our attention we made it our mission to also help these dogs as much as possible. These poor, forgotten pups lead extremely harsh lives, often dying young due to the lack of shelter in extreme weather, the lack of food, and due to illness and injuries. Many of them are Shepherd mixes. Many are puppies and/or moms with their litters. Many are sick or injured. And these adorable pups couldn't be more needy or deserving of our compassion and help. You can help too by opening your heart and fostering, adopting or donating. We do not have a shelter facility. The dogs we rescue stay with our volunteer foster families until the time of their adoption. We provide necessary veterinary care, appropriate nutrition, love, training and socialization to ready our dogs for their forever home. Our greatest need is for foster families. Our ability to save a dog's life is most often determined by whether we have an open foster home for that dog to go in. Our mission is to save and rehabilitate German Shepherd dogs, and place them in permanent, loving homes.
