Schipperke Rescue


Find a Friend & Help a Needy Dog

The Colonial Schipperke Club (CSC) has a long history in providing rescue services in the Mid-Atlantic area, mainly in the states of Maryland, Virginia, and lower Pennsylvania for families, organizations, and individuals. Our commitment is to the health and welfare of  every Schipperke who must leave its home. To better achieve this goal, the CSC decided in 2010 to direct our full support for rescue to (SRN), a Schipperke rescue organization based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. SRN is an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) charitable organization and all donations are tax-deductible.

Rescue Services

SRN is well-regarded within the Schipperke community for their commitment to the health & welfare of every dog that comes under their protection. Further, SRN is dedicated to the provision of all  required healthcare services for each dog and eventual placement with a caring, loving family. 

Each Schipperke who is accepted into the SRN rescue program will remain in foster care until they can match the dog with the best home for that dog. During the foster care period, SRN provides for all medical, dietary, and comfort needs of the dog.

If you know of a purebred Schipperke who is in need of rescue assistance, please contact the SRN Rescue Coordinator.

Adoption Services

If you think you can provide a permanent home or a foster home for a rescued Schipperke,  or know someone who can, please contact SRN. 

  • Please include the following information in your e-mail: 
  • Name and Location (City & State)
  • Whether or not you have a fenced yard
  • Type of residence (house, townhouse, apartment, etc.)
  • Whether or not you have previously owned a Schipperke
