As you can see the monies raised at this years fundog show was fantastic.  £6000 will help us hugely with the kennel bills, vet fees and feeding of our kennel and foster dogs.

We would like to like to take this opportunity to say thank you so much to all of our volunteers, friends, family and helpers who helped us out on the day of the show,  the day could not have gone ahead without you - you were all amazing.

We also want to say thank you to the volunteers who couldnt manage on the day but sponsored classed, collected and sent us goodies for the tombola and some great raffle prizes.  Both the Raffle and Tombolas were a big hit with our visitors and made us lots of money on the day.

A special thank you to the following people & Companies who sponsored the classes on the day.  This sponsorship really helps boost our show fundraising every year.

The list is endless but the result is remarkable.

 THANK YOU ALL FROM THE GSRS TEAM

 

In memory of Harry 2005-2014

Harrys family have just walked the West Highland Way to raise funds for German Shepherd Rescue Scotland in Harrys memory. What a lovely tribute to a very lucky and special boy.

 

Here's what they said about him:

Harry was rescued in glasgow he was left tied to a lamp post and terrified, I was so glad he came to us , what a wonderful bug he turned out to be, he had more empathy than any person I have known he saved my life twice whenI had my strokes by keeping me awake he was also brilliant with my grand children and knew when my grand daughter was i'll with duplex kidney infections, he knew how to get his piont across-you just had to listen. Sadly when his back legs went we couldn't save him we tried all we could to no avail. This is in memory of our handsome, clever, funny, caring boy, the very special Harry.

Our Cosy Dogs Say Thank You

A wee message from our dogs in the kennels to say how cozy and warm they are after the amazing response for heaters for the kennels. To the donators (you know who you are) we cannot thank you enough. It makes such a difference to the dogs in these wild weathers to have a warm place to sleep, especially the oldies.

Christmas Wish List Delivery - Thank You

Cleo delighted with all the goodies that have just arrived from all you wonderful people. Can we also say thank you to Fergusons Pet Supplies who helped Santa with his delivery and will continue to do so after the New Year. Thanks girls!

Zeus is Impressed with Wish List Delivery

Santa came early for Zeus, Cleo and their kennel buddies.

Massive thank you to all those who have contributed to our kennel dog Wish List. Check out the smile on Zeus's face when this lot was delivered. He got himself a new collar, a new lead, a fabby brush for his long hair and loads of treats which he has promised to share around.

There are lots of other dogs in the kennels who are very jealous of Zeus and Cleo's new look so help them look good for Christmas or send them a treat by visiting the Wish List.

Zeus's Christmas Wish List

Zeus and his friends at the kennels have sent a Wish List to Santa for toys they would like to keep them busy, nice treats they would like, new cosy beds and a few other things too.

Please take a look, items start from as little as 90p so there is something on there that everyone can afford. Zeus and his friends will be very grateful!

Well Done Paula and Friends!

On Saturday 28th September Paula Chapman and friends held a charity "Fitathon" of a 3 hours continuous fitness workout class based at her gym in Sand, Shetland.  This raised money for three deserving charities with Paula's choice being German Shepherd Rescue Scotland. There were 10 participants, with Paula instructing and 2 'helpers' and the event was a fantastic success with all the girls involved doing really well to successfully finish the challenge.
This was followed with an excellent buffet and a very entertaining raffle with over 40 prizes which passed with much hilarity and many happy winners. With generous sponsorship and raffle ticket sales, the whole event raised £1899. This raised £633 for German Shepherd Rescue Scotland and big thanks must go to all the participants, sponsors and prize contributors and to Kay Hunter and Paula's partner Guy for their help with preparation on the day.

Paula said, "The event was fantastic and such a great buzz for everyone and the money raised was a brilliant testament to the efforts of everyone involved." We hope the money raised will help in some small way to continue the great work of German Shepherd Rescue Scotland.  

Here is a picture of Paula and friends...

If you can offer a warm, loving foster home please get in touch.

German Shepherds don't do well in kennels, we would love to have warm foster homes to offer instead of cold concrete kennels. ALL food and expenses will be covered by the rescue.
