German Shepherd Rescue Elite (GSRE) has been 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.
GSRE’s 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 you decide to take the plunge especially as German Shepherd Dogs are a large working breed and are not suitable for everyone.
GSRE is a registered charity that 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!
A select group of Volunteers from the Charity German Shepherd Rescue Elite are going to spend a full 24 hours in a kennel at a number of the boarding kennels we use for our dogs. Full details of the dates and the team members can be found on the Team’s Virgin Money Giving page.
Each kennel team will be collecting as much sponsorship as they can to raise much needed funds for the dogs. The main point of picking this exercise as a fundraiser is to try to emulate to everyone what it is like for the poor dogs in a pound or long term kennel life day after day after day, bearing in mind their place of residence will be in no way as luxurious as the kennels the volunteers will be lodging in for one night only, as many poundies only keep the dogs 7 clear days from arriving and if no one comes forward for them they will be PTS (put to sleep) and that is the reality of real rescue, sad eh?
The more money raised the more spaces we can offer to the dogs in these situations so please give generously, it really is for a very worthwhile cause!
A Virgin Money Giving Page has been set up for each kennel team so you can donate to support an individual or a team. Just use one of the logo links below. Donations can also be made by cheque or direct bank transfer (Donations). Please advise which team you are supporting!
The vollies must have visited and be known to the kennels previous to the event.
This will be a 24hr event – so no wimping out!!
You will be sharing a kennel with one of our dogs boarding there at the time.
No food to be taken in or personal items, just the clothes on your back.
You will be fed twice a day with only water to drink.
Toilet breaks will be the same as the dogs.
You will get the same exercise breaks as the dogs.
If you need any meds they will be given at a set time.
Any bad behaviour will be dealt with accordingly!!!!
Olly Murrs found himself in rescue in July 2010 with 6 of his siblings in a neglect case where they were so underweight it was thought that he and one of his sisters would surely die.
Against all odds he battled through and today he is giving something back for having his own life saved.
Olly became a PAT dog in 2012 as his mum thought he had such a wonderful temperament that he should use and share it with as many people as possible to show what a fabulous breed the German Shepherd is.
Olly has a great passion for children and when his mum heard about the Read 2 dogs scheme she thought there would be no better boy to do it than Olly.
Olly started his placement at Abbey Hill school near to where he lives and the welcome he has received has been outstanding but the improvement made by the children reading to him every week is truly amazing.
Here is a photo showing Olly at work and I think you will all agree he is a natural!
Rob is looking forward to having a ‘hands on’ role within the rescue in our pursuit to help as many German Shepherd Dogs as we can through action and education.
Welcome aboard Rob and thank you!

Whilst many dogs have to go into kennels as a safe haven whilst a foster home or forever home is found for them, some dogs have to stay longer than others.
Please be sure to read our guide to adoption before considering adopting a Shepherd.
We’re always looking for foster homes, even if you can only spare time at a weekend to walk or look after our kennel dogs.
Volunteers are what makes our rescue, if you care about the breed and want to make a difference we’d love to hear from you.
Any money donated goes directly to the dogs we help, so please give whatever amount you can.
Visit our online shop and show your support for GSRE.
