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 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.
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.
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.

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.
