This month we focus on Jerry Green Dog Rescue, based in Gilberdyke.
Jerry Green Dog Rescue has been rescuing unwanted and abandoned dogs ever since it was established in 1961. Jerry Green opened a centre in Broughton first and since then another four have been opened, one of those being the Gilberdyke centre which is now manned by passionate staff and dedicated volunteers.
In last month’s issue, we featured some cats and kittens that are currently in foster homes with Goole RSPCA and are looking for loving new families. If you’re more of a dog person, then Jerry Green Dog Sanctuary in Gilberdyke could currently be looking after your new best friend! The dogs pictured here are desperate for a new home.
Rachel Robins, Fundraising and Communications Officer for Jerry Green, said: “Jerry Green Dog Rescue is a charity that always puts dog welfare first. The best thing about working here is seeing the look on a new owner’s face when they come through the door on adoption day when the wagging tail of their new family member is waiting to greet them. We operate a closed kennel system, meaning we invite potential new owners to come and meet our staff so that we can learn all about you and your circumstances and match you with your perfect dog. We can then bring the dog to you in one of our relaxed ‘meet and match’ rooms to spend some quality time together.
“Last year our Gilberdyke centre re-homed an astounding 187 dogs. Every year we get better at what we do so we’re hoping to have re-homed 200 dogs by the end of this year. We need the support of our community to continue to do this amazing work. Jerry Green Dog Rescue doesn’t receive any lottery or government funding — we rely solely on donations from our supporters alone to keep rescuing these dogs. If you can volunteer for us and help us raise some much-needed funds, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Noah is one big puppy with a lot of love to give! He loves to explore the world with his nose and is looking for a family to explore with. Noah is still on his learning journey and needs a family who are keen to learn and train with him.
Rolo is full of character and always looking for the next fun thing to do. He is looking for an active home which has experience owning large guarding breeds to help him progress his basic training. He’s a very friendly boy but a little too boisterous to be re-homed with children.
Simon is a very sweet friendly boy who is looking for a loving forever family where he won’t be left for long periods on his own. Simon loves nothing more than a cuddle and he could live with another dog and children aged seven and above.
Buzz is a cuddly affectionate little dog who just loves to sleep, play, eat and cuddle! Buzz may be small but currently in his foster home he likes to be king of the house, making sure any intruders know he is there! However, when he does meet new people he is very affectionate and caring. He could live with children above eight years of age.
Daphne is a lovely little dog who is looking for a home where she will have long walks then long cuddles on the sofa. Daphne enjoys the company of humans so much that she would be better suited to a home where she won’t be left for long periods of time.
If you’d like to go along and meet these dogs, and many more needing a family, please call the sanctuary on 01430 449112
