About Us

Our Mission

The Old English Sheepdog Rescue Network of the Southeast is a not-for-profit (501c3) organization which was created for the purpose of rescuing unwanted Old English Sheepdogs in the Southeastern United States and finding suitable homes for them. Our organization has capable and dedicated volunteers who have rescued and placed OES for many years.

Our Goals & Objectives

To establish, organize, and maintain a rescue program for abandoned, mistreated or unwanted purebred OES regardless of whether such animals are registered with the American Kennel Club.

  • To provide veterinary care, food, grooming, evaluation and temporary shelter for Old English Sheepdogs and to locate persons and families to provide permanent homes for these unwanted dogs.
  • To conduct fund-raising events and undertake such financial programs necessary to fund the purposes set forth in the OES Rescue Network Mission Statement.
  • To undertake any legal obligations or activities necessary to accomplish the goals of the group.
  • To maintain a cooperative association with all Old English Sheepdog Clubs in an effort to protect the breed.

What We Do

It is expected that each dog entering our care will see a veterinarian within 24 hours for a complete physical and treatment of any medical conditions including but not limited to a heartworm test, rabies and other vaccinations and spay or neuter surgery. The dog will then be groomed and either fostered with a family or boarded in a kennel during which time its temperament will be tested to help us match the dog with the best possible family for its individual personality.  Some dogs may need to remain in medical care for completion of medical treatment before placement in a new home.
