German Shepherd Rescue


Welcome to the German Shepherd Rescue West Essex UK, website. Our aim is to find forever homes for German Shepherds who have found themselves without a family home.

Lyn Cook has been rescuing German Shepherd dogs in the West Essex area since 1989.

Dogs currently waiting for their forever homes are listed in the 'Dogs Waiting' section.

If you would be interested in adopting a dog, please submit an adoption form and someone will get back to you to arrange for a home check.

If you have a general query or want to volunteer to help then please use the 'Contact Us' form. You can alternatively ring Lyn on 07714 854790.

The rescue receives no external funding and relies on donations by the public. Dogs are housed near Waltham Abbey. If you would like to make a donation you can use the 'Donate' button on our website. This is a secure way of making a donation, using PayPal. All donations are gratefully received and everything goes towards the dogs. Thank you.


If you would be interested in any voluntary work towards German Shepherd Rescue West Essex, such as short term fostering, or even offering to walk the rescue dogs on occasions, then please contact Lyn or use the 'Contact Us' form.
