Important Information

Please remember that the rescue is run entirely by volunteers most have whom have jobs, families and their own dogs to look after.

We are all doing our best to help as many dogs as we can. We aren't perfect yet but we really are doing are best.

Remember that our dogs really are worth waiting for and we do our best to rehome any dog that comes our way. We never cherry pick and we do not discriminate by age, temperament or reject dogs because of medical problems. We believe that every dog deserves a second chance

Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil!!

German Shepherd Rescue is run entirely by unpaid volunteers who are involved because of their love for the breed. We have been involved in GSD rescue for many years, we are very experienced with the breed and have built up an excellent reputation for helping these wonderful dogs.

The rescue has grown enormously and through our website we now help many rescues all over the UK rehome GSD's and other large breeds . Unfortunately the more successful you are, it seems the more people will endeavour to undermine the good work that you do.

Rescue is hard and at times very stressful but we remain focused on what we do best - for the sake of all those GSD's out there that need our help. We thank everyone for their continued support for what we do.
