Default Purebred GSD Rescues in Illinois?

Instead of going the puppy route being that I'm in college and my life is too demanding to basically raise a "child", I have decided to go the adoption/rescue route. There are a number of rescues for GSDs here in Illinois. I am however looking to find pure breeds in rescues here. It's not a problem if I can't but if anyone can direct me to a great rescue for GSDs I would greatly appreciate it

Magnificent Mutts Rescue is an all breed rescue, but they have pure bred GSD's quite often. I think they have two right now.

Don't know where you are in Illinois but there is a really good rescue in South Western Michigan German Shepherd Rescue.

I also failed to mention that I'm not planning on getting one until the summer at the earliest

Here is the website for Central Illinois German Shepherd Rescue.

Central IL GSD Rescue

Even though you are not planning on getting a dog until summer, you might want to start reaching out now. Maybe go and meet the volunteers at an event, offer to become a volunteer and assist at the events, etc... It will probably help streamline the process when you are ready to adopt!

Yeah I've looked at their site a couple times. I was thinking about volunteering but I really don't have the time right now or else I would. 2 jobs in college is brutal lol
