Facebook sharing — social media is a powerful tool — it is responsible for the lives of thousands of animals that would have never
made it out of the shelter alive. It provides low-budget rescues with no ability to share photos and information of their dogs and
place them on a free platform to spread the word about their dogs looking for adoption.
It doesn't' work without you! — social media doesn't' work on it's own it needs people like you and me to share share share.
It only takes that one share to find that perfect home.
Since 2010 social media has helped rehome over 5500 dogs through the
UK German Shepherd Rescue.
Your lies could kill us
This is the end result of being untruthful in order to adopt / purchase a dog, at only 8 weeks old this little pup was purchased from a specialist breeder after stating he was going to be the only dog, in fact he was taken home to a waiting 8 year male who took a instant dislike to him.
Never place your own wants over the needs of any animal, like this breeder, rescues want only the best homes for their dogs and carry a policy of taking any unwanted dogs back. This little pup was hours away from being destroyed due to injuries inflicted on him. Luckily the breeder stood by their word and took this little man back costing them hundreds of pounds in veterinary care.
For this pup he lost one eye and was left partially sighted for the rest of his life, please be honest!
We like to do things a little different here at the UK-GSR simply because we added some common sense into the way we do business. If we wanted you to jump through hoops we would have opened a circus for unwanted clowns, we certainly don't judge people simply because they don't tick all the right boxes on our adoption form, and we don't have any ego tripping staff who make you feel belittled when asking for help.
Instead have a friendly happy rehoming team who view you, your family and your home on what you can offer one of our dogs.
That's three simple things that makes a world of difference.
The UK-GSR are a national volunteer based charitable
rescue covering all regions of the United Kingdom.
