Imminent Danger German Shepherd Rescue is a no-kill, all-volunteer organization whose members are passionate about German Shepherd Dogs. Our efforts are focused on helping these GSDs who, through no fault of their own, find themselves in high kill shelters or otherwise homeless, lost, neglected or abandoned by humans they loved.


Imminent Danger German Shepherd Rescue (IDGSR) was founded in 2011 by a compassionate lover of German Shepherds. Seeing the "imminent danger" many German Shepherd Dogs were in, rescuing them from those situations was the only choice to make, so began IDGSR.

The rescue started small in East TN with 3 dogs.  In 2016, the West TN Chapter was started after seeing the need in the Memphis-surrounding area.  Slowly, over the years, the rescue grew and we now rescue hundreds of dogs each year. IDGSR has saved thousands of dogs since the rescue began. The dogs we have taken in come from varying backgrounds including municipal shelters, strays and owner surrenders. The two things they all have in common is they desperately need a safe place to escape the terrible situations they came from, and can't wait to find their furever home where they will be loved and cared for the rest of their life.
