"We are that place in the country where old dogs come to retire."












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 care for displaced *senior German Shepherds.  

* Senior being 8 years and older.

It is our philosophy that these loving, and often overlooked displaced senior German Shepherds have the opportunity to live the best possible life that we can offer. They are just as deserving as their younger counterparts.

We’re raising money to help end the killing of pets in America’s shelters. And we plan on having a lot of fun doing it!

Every day, nearly 1,700 dogs and cats are killed in America's shelters simply because they don't have safe places to call home. That number should be zero. That’s why our team is participating in Best Friends Animal Society’s Strut Your Mutt event to raise money for animals. But we need your help, too. 

Please join us by registering for our team and joining us on October 24, 2020, to walk your dog. We will be gathering at the Tobyhanna State Park Pavilion, Tobyhanna, PA to walk sanctuary dogs from 12pm to 2 pm and would love to see you there. You can also walk your dog where ever you'd like if you can't meet us that day. All participants who donate $15 or more get a free Woody' place T-shirt, so after you donate, be sure to email us your shirt size at wpsgss.org subject heading WP T-SHIRT.

To register or donate click on the link:



Your donation is tax-deductible and each participating animal welfare organization keeps 100 percent of the money raised after transaction fees. And the best part? That money will help save the lives of homeless pets.

Together, we can Save Them All. 

Thank you for your support!
