Now more than ever, you are needed to donate your old blankets, towels, and sheets to your local animal shelter. With financial cut-backs, repairs on shelters are often put off, so if it's drafty, the animals suffer. I know my shelter uses rags to stuff under doors. No kidding! Empty out those closets... this is your chance to get rid of stuff and do something useful!

Ennis, Texas Rescue Group Closing - Homes Needed For 200 Dogs -- UPDATED!!


As of right now, all dogs have been adopted! 

I sent an email to verify, but since time was of the essence, I posted the story.  Check out two email responses I received:

As of today, 10/18/2009, all the Camp Wolfgang Dogs have found their way safely to rescues and new homes. NO DOGS WERE EUTHANIZED-ALL MADE IT OUT SAFELY!!!

Thank you everyone for your dedication and quick response to our plight. God bless you all....

At this time, all Camp Wolfgang dogs have been spoken for. If you are interested in adopting, please email us on Sunday to find out which dogs are available after all rescues have picked up their dogs.

Camp Wolfgang is still in need of monetary donations to go towards transports and to sponsor dogs going to other rescues. We are also in need of large and extra large crates for transport.

If you want to donate a crate, please drop them off at:

A German Shepherd rescue group by the name of Camp Wolfgang, in Ennis, Texas is closing down because of family issues on October 31st.

All the dogs are vetted, spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, well cared-for and many have had training.

They have nearly 200 dogs that must find a foster or be adopted before 31 October or they will have no choice but to euthanize them all.

If you cannot help by fostering or adopting...YOU CAN STILL HELP!!!

Please forward this information to everyone you know...if we all forward this to everyone we know, chances are good that many of these dogs can be saved!

They do not need or want donations, they simply MUST place all of the dogs.

Adoption fees are $75.00, free to verifiable rescue groups.


Current dogs: (approximate)

120 German Shepherds

2 Akitas

1 Anatolian/Great Pyrenees

4 Purebred Rottweiler

1 Great Dane/Lab

1 Boxer/Mastiff

1 St. Bernard/Akita

1 WolfDog

45 Other mixed breeds

Time is of the essence!!

If you know anyone who can adopt, accept a dog into their rescue, or help in any way, contact Neisha Livengood, Kennel Master at Camp Wolfgang .
