About Us

German Shepherd Rescue Elite (GSRE) was formed with the aim of rescuing, re-homing German Shepherd Dogs and educating people on the breed. GSRE is backed up by a team of unpaid volunteers who strive to aid and promote responsible ownership of the breed. We also help other working breeds including Dutch Shepherd Herders and Belgian Shepherd Malinois.

GSRE aim is to be the prevention and not always the cure, through offering education on the lovely breed and how to look after these amazingly intelligent and energetic dogs. We not only look to re-home dogs but keep them in their original homes by offering training and behaviour advice. Through our volunteers and website we want to inform people on all aspects of dog ownership before they decide to take the plunge especially as German Shepherd Dogs are a large working breed and are not suitable for everyone.

GSRE works alongside many other rescues which means that through team work and pulling together we can help even more dogs in need. Please help today!

Why we're raising money

German Shepherd Rescue Elite relies totally on donations to help the dogs we take into our care and every penny is put to good to use.

We do not have a centre but board our dogs in commercial kennels around the UK who have experience with the breed and rescue dogs, but these obviously cost money although we are very lucky to get discounted rates. We also try to ensure that all dogs have a full health check, are vaccinated and where possible neutered. Any dog that arrives in our care is given any medical treatment required, and in some cases this can include expensive surgery.

Your donation really does make a difference to the dogs.

GSRE 2021 Christmas Star Fundraiser

This year's GSRE Christmas Fundraiser is ' Buy A Star For The GSRE Tree ' For a minimum donation of £5 you can choose to place a star on the GSRE and have your dogs name on the star, this can also be in memory of a dog you may have lost ( we won't be sending/posting these stars out ) GSRE has seen it's busiest and toughest year to date, we have never seen so many young dogs arriving with complex issues due to lack of training, socialising and boundaries, sadly many of these dogs are the result of impulse lockdown purchases, we are also seeing much higher levels of dogs arriving in awful conditions due to neglect, abuse and also over breeding as well as our busiest year yet for abandoned pregnant dogs, yes, people kick out pregnant dogs ! Our average monthly bills are over £10,000 a month and that is not including the many surgeries we have covered this year including one dog who needed extensive shoulder surgery costing £7,000 and one needing multiple surgeries on her back legs costing £7,622 but with both dogs being under 3 there was no way we were going to turn our backs. At GSRE we rely solely on donations and fundraising, we are entirely voluntary led and no salaries or expenses are paid as we all donate our time, expertise and knowledge for the love of the breed so you know every penny raised will go to the dogs in our care. To place a dogs name on a Star please leave the name you require when leaving a donation.
