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.

We were featured on Dr. Karen Becker's Game Changer segment of her show!

For anyone who doesn't know who Dr. Karen Becker she is "the most followed veterinarian in the world, and for good reason. Dr. Becker believes in a deliberate, common sense approach to creating and maintaining vibrant health for companion animals and an unconventional, integrative approach to addressing disease and re-establishing wellbeing in ill pets. This refreshing, proactive approach that intentionally focuses on creating or restoring wellbeing has been embraced by millions of pet lovers around the world"

And she is co-author of the "Forever Dog", a wonderful book that she and Rodney Habib wrote which uncovers new science to help your dog live a longer, happier, healthier life!

I (Dawn) can't get enough of Dr. Karen! She is truly one of my hero's, and I was so honored to be on her program.

🏵️ It'S tHaT tImE oF tHe YeAr AgAiN! 🌺

Our Flower Power fundraiser is underway and will be running through May 25, 2022.

There's new items this year, so be sure to check out our Flower Power web page. Be sure to get your orders in now because even though orders won't ship until the end of March, last year products sold out early and it was a little bit until they were back in stock.


Folks, can I tell you how much I love the bulbs, seeds, and other products from this company?? I LOVE them! I've personally been buying from this company for just about a decade and have never had an issue. Not one!


But let's talk about what this fundraiser is really about....our senior German Shepherd residents. The mission of Woody's Place Senior German Shepherd Sanctuary is to provide life-long, compassionate care for abandoned and displaced senior German Shepherds (8 years and older) regardless of their health issues, in a home setting.


▶️ "We are that place in the country where old dogs come to retire." ◀️ Please help us with our mission and get some wonder flowers, fruits, veggies, and micro greens as well.
