Central German Shepherd Rescue (bettter known as CGSR) is a small registered charity based in Lincolnshire, covering Lincs, Notts, Northants, Cambs & Beds. CGSR does not have a rescue centre, but uses foster homes & Emergency Boarding Kennels.
To ensure that our rescue dogs are not adopted on a whim for Christmas we have a foster-only policy for December and early January. We are happy to 'Foster with a view to Adoption' during this time. Please see our Adoption page for more details.
CGSR would like to say a massive THANK YOU to Animal Friends Pet Insurance for their extremely generous donation of £5000.00.
Please see below for more information.
CGSR - or Central German Shepherd Rescue - evolved from a group of people with vast German Shepherd experience.
We have a network of dedicated fosterers who look after the dogs needing new homes - we don't have a rescue centre where the dogs can be viewed. If you'd like to adopt one of our dogs, please complete our adoption form or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be very happy to arrange 'meets and greets' for appropriate dogs.
The aim was to create an officialy registered charity designed to help those in need, something that was achieved in less than 12 months.
All of our dogs available for adoption are shown on the following page with further information on them.
Each of our dogs will be vet checked, micro chipped and assessed. We are proud of our reputation in the back-up we provide to our dogs and their new family.
Why not come and visit Central German Shepherd Rescue at one of the many shows we attend throughout the year. Talk to our experienced volunteers and maybe see some of our gorgeous dogs.

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
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.
