About BigGSD

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 the two are independent and this website and forum is run by a group of individuals with a passion for helping dogs, who give up their free time to do so. The principal aim of BigGSD is to aid in the rehoming of German Shephard Dogs and bitches in the UK and Ireland, this is done by doing the following:


1. Making people aware of 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 euthanised (put to sleep).
3. Helping to fund the kenneling, fostering and transportation costs whenever possible via the BigGSD fund.
4. Brining GSD loving people together through this site and forum as a community.
5. Heping all other breeds/crossbreeds, in addition to GSDs, to find a safe, secure and loving home wherever possible.
6. Offering a list of homecheckers, volunteers and fosterers that are members on the site who can help rescues and private invididuals wherever possible and providing the ability to request help too.
7. Providing areas on the forum that include: transport requests, training advice, walks and events as well as supplier recommendations.
