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!

Big Break for Charity
Help us donate to your favourite good causes
Last year we raised a huge £150,000 for charity as part of our Big Break Campaign. Once more in 2014, together with our supporters we are giving to 100 charities and good causes, and we need YOU to decide which ones deserve a Big Break.
Vote for your favourite good cause
Each month from March until June we will donate £5,000 to the causes you think are most deserving. You tell us where the money should go with your votes. The cause that receives the highest number of votes each month will receive £2,000; the cause with the second highest number of votes will receive £1,000; and the remaining £2,000 will be divided amongst the runners up. The number of runners up may vary each month.
We need all of you to vote for us to help us to win £2,000 for our dogs!!! Please register your vote today. Please share far and wide with everyone you know, we have until the end of March!!!
Thank you for visiting my page. Please help me to get to my target sooner rather than later by making a donation TODAY. It really takes the pressure off if you’ve passed target before the event, THANK YOU. Yes people, i’m at it again and as usuall with me i’m looking to make it as hard as i can manage (like a marathon’s not hard enough!). I was lucky enough to actually get a ballot place this year so had the option to run for fun, or choose a charity thats not on the VLM list. If your gonna do it, may as well raise some cash for a good cause, and i’ve picked a cracker! GSRE are fantastic and a certain hairy member of our family wouldn’t be here without them. So, if you love animals, want to support my efforts, like to see me suffer or can spare a pound or two, please don’t wait, click donate!
Oh yes, i mentioned making it harder didn’t i! Well this year i’m planning on running the 26.2 miles in fancy dress! A big hairy dog suit will hopefully be fun enough to intice lots if donations. This is gonna be very hot and painfull so please support me if you can.
Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity’s behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any and all donations.
Just to remind everyone that in Tony Hill will be lacing up his trainers and running the London Marathon to raise much needed funds for our wonderful dogs, if you can spare a few pounds to support both Tony and GSRE that would be wonderful!! Tony was one of GSRE’s first adopters taking on a rather large 7 month old lad called Sam! Here is the link to Tony’s fundraising page, please help if you can.
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!
The club very kindly donated the cost of the kit to enable this and many thanks to Gedd Gillespie for organising it all!
So come on GSD lovers, time to lend a bit of support to the Shepway Spartans and wish them a great season ahead!

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.
If we can help you with advice and support for your Shepherd, then visit our useful articles and information, get in touch, visit our Facebook page or ask in our community.
Great way to socialise your dog or just meet like minded people!
