We have German shepherds waiting for homes right now.

All our dogs will make excellent family pets
We use kennels as a last choice so we are always looking for those special people who are able to foster a dog, whilst we are looking for a forever home.
We can't rescue and rehome German Shepherds without your help.
Our dogs rely entirely on donations, your donations help our rescue continue its work in helping neglected & unwanted German shepherd dogs & puppies here in the United Kingdom.

Did you know many of our dogs don't make it to this website or to our social media pages before they find a home. This is because potential homes are "Home Checked & Adoption Ready" and waiting for their next suitable dog when they come into rescue. The UK German Shepherd Rescue rehome's about 30% of our rescue dogs within hours of them having their assessment.

German Shepherd puppies are always in demand.

Get home checked passed and adoption ready and never miss out on your next dog again.
(UK German Shepherd Rescue)
Lean more about our dogs, like where they come from and how we home check potential adoptee's. Get an insight in to how our rescue is financially supported and how we spend your donations. All our volunteers have a passionate about the German Shepherd breed and are always happy to share their wealth of information if required.

Thank again for visiting our rescue, hope you enjoy your visit.

****OUR 4TH ANNIVERSARY!**** 17th September 2014
After being involved with rescues for over 10 yrs, 4 of those years as Co-ordinators , myself & Mr Paul Duxbury left another breed specific rescue & set up UK German Shepherd Rescue.
We had no money, no website, but we had a passion for saving this breed & we had plenty of experience of rescue work- which is vital in starting any rescue!
Our very first dog was a poundie girl called Honey. Well 4 yrs down the line, Duxie still puts up with me & we have achieved so much in such a short space of time. There are 100's of dogs enjoying the life they should have all down to UK-GSR.
We have grown so much, we have a wonderful team of volunteers who are all singing from the same hymn sheet.
Several volunteers have learnt so much from UK-GSR, they have gone on to set up their own rescues too- well they do say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery- so we must be doing it right!
We have seen some awful sights come through our doors, & the team has always pulled out all of the stops to ensure a happy future for each & every dog we rescue.
Thankyou to all who have supported us throughout the last 4 yrs- as without your support none of this would have been possible.
We have alot of new things planned for the next few months- some things that no other rescue have tried- all exciting stuff! So please, can you all raise a glass to the last 4 years & toast to the coming years.
