Reputable GSD rescues who pull from shelters in the South?

I keep hearing rumors that there are well-funded GSD rescues in the Northeast that pull purebred dogs from kill shelters in the Southeast and do regular transports north. I think they're a myth, but I'd love to be proven wrong.

If they exist, can anyone help identify the particular breed rescues who actually do this?

Did a quick search here. TRANSPORT - The American German Shepherd Rescue Association, Inc.
Found this...
Don't know anything about this group but they're pulling from the south and transporting to the north. Not all GSD's though.

It is not a myth, or at least it wasn't. I used to volunteer for VGSR for many years, with their help I pulled and arranged transport of many GSDs in need from horrible shelters like the one in GA and Memphis, TN that still gas dogs. I've even pulled Labs for the Lab rescue. One time I went down to GA myself and brought back 5 dogs.

Carolina is right. I volunteered with VGSR and they sure did.

Big Dogs Big Hearts Rescue Buffalo NY Rochester NY

from the home page:
BDBHconcentrates on rescuing German shepherds, other large breed dogs. Most of the dogs come from local area shelters and shelters in the Southern United States.


They are based in upstate NY and adopt out to NY, PA, OH, and CT.

White Paws does it as well.

With the economy as bad as it is, everything is harder.

most of the all breed rescues up here pull from down south as well , they dont pull from the local shelters anymore, they head straight down south and bring southern dogs back up here.
