Here's what your looking for (and they probably are looking for folks like you, too) and what the Capt was referring to. I used to volunteer here a few years ago, wonderful place for animals with no one to love them...

There's also the Southern Nevada chapter of the Greyhound Pets of America. They rescue greyhounds from the track. I've been to a couple of their picnics, and they're a very worthwhile group.

I think the Nevada SPCA needs help. That's where we got our Herman.

I'm sure they are. Besides German Shepard rescue there are folks doing the same things with other breeds. Greyhounds come to mind for one. Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, UT, needs volunteers too.
