German Shepherd Rescue, Surrey UK

There is a home out there for every dog...

Who are we?

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 are looking for experienced people who could provide foster care for some special young dogs, not all of whom are German Shepherds.
These dogs are coming to the UK very shortly where they will undergo surgery to correct joint problems to enable them to walk more easily and be free from pain. Ideally, the foster home should be within 25miles of CM22 postcode, or in the Essex area, as the puppies will need regular check-ups with the specialist surgeon whilst recovering.
All expenses will be paid and food provided.
If you could offer one of theses puppies a quiet and stress free home environment, whilst they are recovering, please pm myself.
Homechecks would need to be carried out.
Pat Clark who runs Mutts in Distress has taken it upon herself to help these puppies who, without surgery, would have no quality of life. She now needs help with finding foster homes, so if you feel you could help, please let me know.
Many thanks.


BIGGSD is a voluntarily run virtual rescue organisation helping to rehome dogs in the UK and Ireland.
Although BIGGSD was created by German Shepherd Rescue Surrey, the funding of BIGGSD & German Shepherd Rescue are separate and financially each works independently of the other.
The principal aim of BIGGSD is to help rehome German Shepherd dogs in the UK & Ireland and this is done mainly by:
1.Making people aware of the dogs in need, at rescue centers, dog pounds, other rescue organisations and with private individuals
2.Bringing particular attention to the plight of dogs who are under immediate threat of being put to sleep (pts)
3.Helping to fund the kennelling, fostering & transport costs whenever possible via the BIGGSD fund
4.Bringing German Shepherd dog loving people together through this board as a community
5.Helping any other breed or crossbreed dog too, to find a safe, secure and loving home whenever possible
6.Offering a list of homecheckers, volunteers & fosterers that are members on the site who can help rescues & private individuals whenever possible and providing the ability to request help too.
7.Providing areas on the board that include; Transport requests, Behaviour, Health & Training advice, Walks & Events and Supplier recommendations
8.Having BIGGSD branded items for sale and a paypal donation facility that help to provide the necessary funding that is needed to help dogs
BIGGSD is administered and moderated by a group of individuals who give their free time voluntarily with no payment
The fund exists to help pay for kenneling, transport and veterinary fees for dogs in urgent need. A summary of how funds have been spent is posted on the forum from time to time.
