Welcome to the Vigil GSD Rescue website!
Vigil was founded in 1984 and is a registered charity that rescues and re-homes German Shepherd Dogs throughout the UK. The rescue is a non-profit organisation that is run entirely by unpaid volunteers, and we rely totally on donations from the general public to keep the rescue running.
To contact Vigil please give us a call - here are our contact phone numbers.
Will you give Freddie and Barney a home?
Freddie and Barney are looking for their Forever Home, preferably together. They are beautiful dogs, both about 2 years old, and they're looking for a home without children or cats. Both dogs are now in foster in the UK. Find out about Freddie and Barney

From the first day Vigil began operations we boarded dogs at Treetops Kennels in Guildford and we are thrilled to still be operating from Treetops.
We are proud to be one of the few rescues in the UK that will take on problem dogs and work with them for as long as it takes to ensure the dog can be re-homed successfully.
You can support our efforts to help German Shepherds by making a Donation or by sponsoring a dog if you are unable to adopt. You can also help as you shop online, through Easyfundraising.com by choosing to support us. You can also become a member.
