MMCD Employees in the Community: Rachel Hanna

At Mason-McDuffie Mortgage, we are proud to say that our employees are not only good at their jobs, but they are also good people who give back to their communities. This week we would like to take a moment to highlight Rachel Hanna and her awesome work with the German Shepherd Rescue of Northern California.


Rachel has been a volunteer with GSRNC for the last year. In that year, she has provided a foster home for 5 dogs, volunteered at their many adoption event,s and assisted with the dog evaluation programs.

Volunteering with German Shepherds is a family activity for Rachel. Her parents became involved with GSRNC after adopting a German Shepherd through the rescue when she was in high school. Both of her parents became evaluators for the organization. As evaluators, they help build the profile of these adoptable dogs so that they can find the right forever home.

Rachel feels that GSRNC stands out from other organizations of its kind. Not only do they take animals with medical issues, but they also have a special program, the Thulani Program, dedicated to seniors dogs who need special care. Additionally, GSRNC allocates resources specifically to work with potential adopters to make sure that each dog is getting the right home.

How can YOU help GSRNC?

Become a Volunteer: GSRNC has regional offices in Woodland, San Jose, and Redwood City, and hold volunteer-run activities all over Northern California.

Foster: Much like many other animal rescues, GSRNC could use more foster homes. Every time a dog goes to a foster home, more space opens German Shepherds to be saved from shelters.

Donate: Monetary donations are always welcome. However, GSRNC could also benefit from the donations of beds (especially orthopedic), leashes and collars.

Attend a Fundraiser! GSRNC’s Wags to Riches Event is coming up on October 3rd at the Shrine Event Center in Livermore! To learn more, please click here.
