About Be a Hottie

7bfc5bcbb54e6d90f03560d275d36d57ad49f9d8

What’s the hotline? GSRNC maintains a “1-800” number for folks to call when they have questions about GSDs. The number is 1-800-SAVE-GSD (or, 1-800-728-3473).

The phone line is entirely staffed by volunteers. Each volunteer answers calls about a specific topic; our most common questions are:

I want to adopt a GSD! How do I do it?
I can’t keep my GSD. Can you help me?
I found a stray GSD – what do I do with it?
There’s a GSD in the XYZ shelter! Can you save it?

You don’t have to be an expert on any topic to answer questions, because we have “cheat-sheets” that cover almost everything. Plus, we have “mentors” who can help you out if you get stuck.

You don’t have to answer the calls directly when someone calls. When someone calls, our voicemail system asks them to choose the topic they’re calling about. It then routes the call to an answering system for the volunteer that covers that topic. The volunteer gets notified of the call, and can read it online, in an email, or listen to the voicemail. If it’s more convenient, the volunteer can have the calls go directly to their phone, so they can be answered “live”.
