There are a huge number of ways anyone can help the Charity to raise funds and provide the money desperately needed to assist the dogs we care so much about.

They have over 2000 retailers on their website and by using the links they provide, the retailer will donate up to 15% of their purchase price to us every time you buy.
It's free to use, and with lots of exclusive discounts and offers, it could in fact save you money! Registration is free - all you have to do is sign up to:
www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/gsd2000 and use it whenever you shop online.
Helping or supporting isn't all about fundraising - we need help in other ways too, for example, moving dogs or home-checking. We can't promise to keep you busy all of the time, but just to know there is someone we can call on to help in this way makes a big difference.
Help and support is always welcome too with any of our events - setting up and running a stall or just coming along to say "Hello".
For an up-to-date list of where and what we're doing, click on our Events page.
You can donate a very small amount by mobile phone. Your donation can be as little as £1 up to £10 simply by sending a text message to 70070 using our individual code GSDS00 and your donation amount.
You will receive a text to confirm your donation, and the amount will be deducted from your mobile phone credit or your next bill.

Many employers operate a payroll-giving scheme which enables you to donate a fixed sum from your salary each month. You can make a one-off or regular monthly payment from your gross pay so you benefit from full income tax relief.
If this is something you would like to do, check with your employer whether they operate this scheme.
