German Shepherd Dog Rescue Surrey is a non-profit volunteer organisation dedicated to finding the right home for each dog in its care. We take in unwanted German Shepherd dogs and provide shelter and care for them until we can find them a secure and loving home. We promote responsible dog ownership and provide an after care advice, support and guidance service for the new pet owner.  All our dogs are kept in a home environment and not in a kennel, this gives us a better chance of seeing the real character of the dogs and to make a more informed assessment.

We need dedicated and caring owners to adopt our dogs.

!!URGENT RETIREMENT HOME for 14 year old GSD bitch !!


We also need volunteers to foster our Dogs while they wait for their forever homes, and also volunteers are needed to assist with the dogs on a daily basis to help walk and socialise here at German Shepherd Rescue, Surrey and also at Vigil in Guildford. If you live within 30 miles (or so) of Guildford or Chertsey and would like to become a GSD Fosterer please phone us for details. It should be noted that many a fosterer has had the title of F.F added to their name.....Failed Fosterer.....meaning that some dogs you just can't say 'Goodbye' too.

If you feel that you are not in a position to help by fostering, there are many other ways to assist.

Volunteers who are able to walk and socialise the dogs are an invaluable asset. A great way to maybe meet for the first time this fabulous breed that we all love so much .

But the lively dog is back to enjoying walks with her owner after being fitted with an artificial foot and ankle by pioneering vet Dr Noel Fitzpatrick.

Dogs of all ages and breeds can become infected with lungworm. However, younger dogs seem to be more prone to picking up the parasite. Dogs known to eat slugs and snails should also be considered high risk.Read More

     The Irish Rescues

The majority of Irish GSDs are rescued by our welfare colleagues in Ireland from dog pounds. In these pounds, stray dogs have a 5 day stay & are then at serious risk of destruction if not reclaimed by their owner, or rehomed . Our rescue colleagues in Ireland work tirelessly to find urgent rescue/kennel spaces for the dogs . Once they are out of an "at risk" situation, the dogs are wormed/vaccinated/neutered Read More
