Committed to caring for German Shepherds
Our aim is to find happy, loving homes for our German Shepherd dogs, those that cannot be re-homed will spend the rest of their days in our care within our loving foster homes.
Based 7.6 miles inland from the Lancashire holiday resort of Blackpool.
The UK German Shepherd Rescue is a registered charity committed to the welfare of German Shepherd dogs throughout the United Kingdom.

The UK German Shepherd Rescue has kennels in Wales, Kent, Warwickshire, Derbyshire and Lancashire. We have an average of 60 German Shepherd dogs and even puppies looking for homes at any given time, dogs that cannot be rehomed are cared for in our loving foster homes.

The UK German Shepherd Rescue carries a no kill poilicy meaning they will stay in our care until a suitable loving home is found. 
 We like to do things a little different here at the UK-GSR simply because we added some common sense into the way we run our rescue. If we wanted you to jump through hoops we would have opened a circus for unwanted clowns, we certainly don't judge people simply because they don't tick all the right boxes on our adoption form, and we don't have any ego tripping staff who make you feel belittled when asking for help.

Instead have a friendly happy rehoming team who view you, your family and your home on what you can offer one of our dogs.

That's three simple things that makes a world of difference.
The UK-GSR are a national volunteer based charitable
rescue covering all regions of the United Kingdom.
A Modern Way To Rescue

Better understand why the UK German Shepherd Shepherd Rescue has grown in to
one of the UK's biggest and most loved rescues

On average we have about sixty German Shepherds looking for homes at any one time, in order to match our dogs to the very best homes we have the adoption process, the adoption process is a simple way of learning about you, your home and what your can offer one of our dogs.
Giving up your dog is never an easy decision to make, so giving up your dog to a dedicated German shepherd rescue is your first step in the right direction. We are so passionate about the GSD breed that we carry a “No Kill Policy” so you can be reassured that no time limit for re-homing your pet is placed upon them.

Share Our Dogs With Your Facebook Friends
Facebook sharing — social media is a powerful tool — it is responsible for the lives of thousands of animals that would have never made it out of the shelter alive. It provides low-budget rescues with no ability to share photos and information of their dogs and place them on a free platform to spread the word about their dogs looking for adoption.
It doesn't' work without you! — social media doesn't' work on it's own it needs people like you and me to share share share. It only takes that one share to find that perfect home.
Since 2010 social media has helped rehome over 5500 dogs through the UK German Shepherd Rescue.
