Saved from the stray pound, Pinkie Pie is a two year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier with so much love to give for everyone she meets. As her ninth month in their care approaches, Jerry Green Dog Rescue has launched a regional appeal to help find Pinkie Pie her forever home in time for spring.
The charity, which has cared for and found forever homes for around 1,000 dogs in the last 12 months, is calling upon its supporters to fulfil a rescue dog’s wish by spreading the word to help to find Pinkie Pie a home.
Elizabeth Hempstock, Fundraising Officer at Jerry Green’s told us: “I have spent a lot of time with Pinkie Pie and I can honestly say that she is one of the most affectionate dogs that I have ever met. It breaks my heart to see her still waiting for her forever home.”
Pinkie Pie is currently Jerry Green Dog Rescue’s longest stay resident across the whole organisation, having been in their care for almost 9 months. To maximise the chance of her finding a home, Pinky Pie has been transferred between three of the charity’s five centres but unfortunately, still hasn’t received any suitable interest.
“Squeaky balls, tummy tickles, woodland walks and picnics are just a few of her all-time favourite things to do, along with looking constantly adorable and dishing out the best cuddles to her friends at the Centre,” Jo Hickson, South Lincolnshire’s Centre Manager told us.
Pinkie Pie currently enjoys spending her days in the office perfecting her admin skills with the team. Working in reception means that day in day out, she watches her fellow rescue residents happily leave for their forever homes and although she has made some amazing friends at the centre, she desperately dreams of a forever family to call her own.
Paige Chappill, Fundraising Officer said: “It’s no secret that Staffie’s seem to have unforgivably bad press which is such a shame and sometimes make rehoming the breed quite difficult, as we have found in Pinkie Pie’s case. If there was ever a dog that could contradict the negative “Staffie status” then it is definitely this girl. She has such a big heart and so much love to give – you can guarantee you’ll be greeted with the best hugs and kisses. She genuinely brightens up your day.”
The teams at each of the five Jerry Green Dog Rescue centres across the region will be doing all they can to spread Pinkie Pie’s rehoming appeal to help find her a loving forever home and is urging for your support to do the same.
Elizabeth Hempstock added: “It’s not very often that we launch a large campaign for one of our rescue dogs as they are often rehomed within a reasonable time frame. However, for some reason our Pinkie Pie hasn’t received any suitable interest in any of our centres so we are hoping that a big push will help do the trick.”
Pinkie Pie is looking for an adult only home where she will be the only pet. She would benefit from a patient family, who is willing to continue her training and help improve her social skills around other dogs.
