Sauver Des Chiens, which is French for “To Save The Dogs”, was founded November 2016.

Sauver Des Chiens is a 501(c)3 all-volunteer, foster-based organization.  We are based in Texas but have fosters and dogs in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi.

Our passion and mission is to rescue neglected, unwanted, and abused, German Shepherd and Large Paw Dogs with the goal of finding them a new permanent and loving home.  All dogs receive full veterinary care, including spay/neuter, positive training and necessary behavior modification before they are ready to adopt.


We are still a relatively new German Shepherd Rescue group, but we have managed to save dozens of lives.  We run our group with honesty, integrity and heart.

We could not do this without the help of all of our volunteers and donors.

Won’t you join us in this endeavor?  Everything you do makes a difference!

Karen & Pups

Karen is one of the most passionate dog loving people our group has ever seen.  She is committed to making sure everyone’s voice is heard, even those who cannot speak for themselves.  She is our founding member and has been in the rescue industry for 2.5 years.  There are a lot of people out there that forget this is a volunteer trade, however Karen’s devotion and reliability would emulate one of someone who makes millions.  Thank you Karen for working so hard and making sure these babies have a second chance!
