Woody’s Place Senior German Shepherd Sanctuary, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization located in Greentown, Pa. Since our start in 2011, it has been our mission to provide the best possible long-term compassionate care for abandoned and displaced German Shepherds eight years and older.  

"It's not about how many dogs we have in our care on any given day. It's about how many we have provided long-term care for over the years.

For anyone who doesn't know who Dr. Karen Becker she is "the most followed veterinarian in the world, and for good reason.
