Garbo's German Shepherd Dog Rescue
Garbo's German Shepherd Dog Rescue is a non-profit Volunteer organization dedicated to finding the right home for each dog in its care. They take in unwanted German Shepherd dogs and provide shelter and care for them until they can find them a secure and loving home. They promote responsible dog ownership and provide an after care advice, support and guidance service for the new pet owner. They need dedicated and caring owners to adopt their dogs are sadly given intto rescue for many diverse reasons e.g. owners become ill, divorce, go abroad, are evicted from their homes or can no longer afford such a large pet. Often the dog is very much loved and the owner is trying to do the "right thing" for the dog in difficult circumstances.
Garbo's Rescue is based at Heathrow situated in a peaceful setting next to several fishing lakes. Whilst maintaining its rural appeal, the kennels are only minutes from the M4, M25 and London Heathrow Airport. They also kennel our rescues at Green Lane Farm Kennels which is set within a quiet location in Chessington. They also have fabulous home based support in Sussex where they have the chance to rehabilitate some of our rescues before rehoming.

Your donation has been reserved for current dog care.
This means it will be used for kennelling and veterinary fees for a number of our four-legged friends in our care, as you will know some treatments can be costly (scale and polish, neutering etc) and this is not always covered by the adoption fee.
Below is a picture of Eunice presenting Andrew Simmonds from AHT with the cheque for £1050 raised by BDTC in 2015/2016 with a copy of the letter sent by AHT.
It was a pleasure meeting you at Crufts on the Sunday and to have received the wonderful cheque from Billinghurst Dog Training Club’s fundraising in 2016. What an honour to receive your valued funds in this our 75th Anniversary year!!
With our sincere thanks again for supporting our canine work and I shall look forward to updating you on how the funds were utilised in due course. We will ensure they provide a huge benefit towards furthering the health and welfare of dogs.
Very best wishes.
