To our many dog lovers and followers:

The main mission of BrightStar German Shepherd Rescue, Inc. is to rescue, rehabilitate and find “forever homes” for German Shepherds and German Shepherd mixes.  We also try to help other organizations and people when needed.  This year we will focus our donation on the Monroe County Sheriff’s Canine Unit with a donation for equipment for their dogs.

BrightStar will be contributing money for this and we would like to put out this appeal to our friends also.  If you would like to donate to this very worthy cause, please send your tax-deductible donations to: 

BrightStar German Shepherd Rescue, Inc.

815 Robertson Rd.

Churchville, NY 14428

 Please mark on your check – MCS Canine Donation

We will be presenting the donation to a representative of the Monroe County Sheriff’s Canine Unit at our annual picnic on August 23, 2014.   


Thank you so much for your continued support.


Bonnie Spring, treasurer
