Who We Are:  

Woody’s Place ~ Senior German Shepherd Sanctuary, Inc. is a small non-profit 501 c 3 located in Greentown Pennsylvania. We rely solely on volunteers and  forever fosters who share a common goal of providing a safe and loving forever home for abandon senior German Shepherds (8 years and older).

It is our philosophy that it is of the utmost importance to us that these loving, and often overlooked abandon senior German Shepherds have the opportunity to live the best possible life we can offer them throughout their golden years. They are just as deserving as their younger counterparts.

Ultimately, we strive to improve the quality of life for the abandoned senior German Shepherd whenever possible during their retirement.


What we CAN NOT do. We CAN NOT take aggressive dogs, either dog aggressive or human aggressive. Placing senior dogs can be challenging enough; Then factor in a senior with aggression issues, and we have practically NO chance of placing that dog. In addition, our dogs, more often than not, reside together, so to go along, they have to get along. Finally, we have insurance matters to consider. An aggressive  dog is a liability.

As of 2013 we no longer take dogs sight unseen or from outside the eastern Pennsylvania area Any and all dogs must be evaluated by trusting members of Woody’s Place before we commit to take the dog.

 If you would like to join us in our mission by volunteering please go to “Becoming a volunteer”, or contact us at
