RESCUE DOES NOT STOP FOR ANYTHING, NOT EVEN THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC!
DUE TO THE CURRENT SITUATION WITH CORONAVIRUS, THERE ARE NOT MANY DOGS IN RESCUE AT PRESENT. THIS IS BECAUSE DURING LOCK DOWN MANY PEOPLE RUSHED OUT TO BUY A DOG OR PUPPY. WHILST WE EXPECT A LARGE INFLUX OF DOGS AT SOME STAGE ACROSS ALL RESCUES, WE ARE QUIETER THAN EVER AT PRESENT. APPLICATIONS TO ADOPT A DOG CONTINUED TO COME IN HOWEVER, MEANING THERE IS CURRENTLY A LONG WAITING LIST.
WITH THE NATIONAL LOCK DOWN IN EFFECT WE ARE STILL NOT IN A POSITION TO PROCESS ANY APPLICATIONS TO ADOPT OR FOSTER A DOG UNTIL WE ARE ALLOWED BACK INTO PEOPLE’S HOMES TO CARRY OUT A PHYSICAL HOME CHECK.
THEREFORE THE CHARITY HAS MADE THE DIFFICULT DECISION NOT TO ACCEPT ANY FURTHER APPLICATIONS TO ADOPT OR FOSTER AT THIS TIME. OF COURSE THIS POLICY WILL BE REGULARLY REVIEWED ACCORDING TO GOVERNMENT POLICIES.
THE CHARITY WILL OF COURSE CONTINUE TO TAKE IN EMERGENCY DOGS.
AS A RESPONSIBLE CHARITY WE NEED TO ENSURE THE ONGOING HEALTH AND SAFETY OF OUR VOLUNTEERS AND SUPPORTERS AND THE LONG TERM WELFARE OF THE DOGS IN OUR CARE.
YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT, PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING IS APPRECIATED.
German Shepherd Rescue Elite (GSRE) has been formed with the aim of rescuing, re-homing German Shepherd Dogs (GSD’s) 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.
More recently GSRE have also been helping the Belgian Shepherd Malinois (Mali’s) and Dutch Shepherds (Herders), who have started finding themselves in rescue, and as the other main working breed used by the police and armed forces, we feel we are better placed than many rescues to understand their needs.
GSRE is a registered charity that works alongside many other reputable rescues which means that through team work and pulling together we can help even more dogs in need. To assist in this we are now a Full Member of the Association of Dogs and Cats Homes (ADCH) who promote best practice in animal welfare, and a member of the EU Dog and Cat Alliance who call for EU action to build a better Europe for dogs and cats.
We are a proactive charity with a common goal; the welfare of animals.
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.
