About us

Second Chances German Shepherd Rescue is a Scottish charity – we cover Scotland and Northern England.

Since its inception in 1995 from an idea by Peter and Gwendolyn, Second Chances for German Shepherds has been solely occupied with the health, welfare and wellbeing of this noble breed.

Second Chances was granted charity status in 1997 and the charity was reconsistuted in 2001. Throughout this period the charity has been, and still is, run entirely by a group of volunteers dedicated to the breed. These people give freely of their time and energies to ensure that the German Shepherd dogs in their care receive the best possible attention.

Second Chances’ devoted volunteers cover the whole of Scotland and the North of England.
