Central German Shepherd Rescue (CGSR)


In the past few months CGSR have been working very closely with CEFNI German Shepherd Rescue who have now unfortunately had to close down. We took in 4 of their dogs before Christmas, and have now agreed to take Cyrus on as a home from home, and Susie who is currently in a foster home.

We have also agreed to give full rescue back up (RBU) for ALL CEFNI dogs - it will be hard work, but it is "what we do"….help GSD's in need whenever and wherever we can, and without cherry-picking.

CGSR stepped in to help when other GSD rescues wouldn't as many were not prepared to give full RBU, which CEFNI provided and they obviously wanted consistency and peace of mind for their dogs and adopters.

All of our volunteers give their time and energy free, and all have other commitments of daily life outside of rescue.

For this reason we are looking for more volunteers and helpers, no matter how small or insignificant it may feel to you, every minute/£1 given by one person takes pressure off the rest of us.

If you feel you could help in any way please complete one of the volunteer forms or donate via the button below......

About CGSR

CGSR - or Central German Shepherd Rescue - evolved from a group of people with vast German Shepherd experience.

The aim was to create an officialy registered charity designed to help those in need, something that was achieved in less than 12 months.

Happy Homes

And that is, as they say, exactly what it says on the tin.

Here you can find some of the wonderful dogs that have come into Central German Shepherd Rescue and gone on to live a happy life in a new loving family.

Some of them have come through trauma, some have come through their owners personal circumstances but each and every one has gone to a HAPPY HOME

Helping Hands

From time to time there are situations whereby people are taken into care for operations etc, this requires there loved pets to require foster homes for a period of time.

Sometimes we are unable to offer foster homes for various reasons such as being full but we are prepared to share their plight in the hope that others will be able to help provide short term or longer fostering.
