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.

Elizabeth Hempstock, Fundraising and Communications Officer for Jerry Green said: ‘I love working at Jerry Green Dog Rescue because it is a charity that always puts dog welfare first and at the heart of every decision made. 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 and the wagging tail of their new family member is waiting to greet them. It makes all the time we spend washing muddy paw prints out of our clothes worthwhile.

‘At Jerry Green Dog Rescue we will always strive to make animal welfare our top priority, putting it at the heart of every decision we make. Due to this we have pioneered a new approach to rehoming dogs that we call Meet and Match®. This system saw our charity move from open to closed kennels.

‘We now invite people to come and meet our staff, so that we can learn all about you, your circumstances and match you to 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.

‘In 2016, our Gilberdyke centre re-homed an astounding 187 dogs. Every year we get better at what we do so we’re hoping to make it to 200 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 elizabeth.hempstock@jerrygreendogs.org.uk’

Can you offer us a loving, forever home?

Rita is a seven year old small Staffordshire Bull Terrier crossbreed.  She is house trained and could live with children over eight years old. Mini Rita Roo, is a real sweetie. She’s very playful, loves going for walks and she absolutely loves her toys. She walks out nicely with other dogs from the centre but we feel she would prefer to be the only dog in a home, where she can be the centre of attention and get all the cuddles to herself! If you think Rita is the girl for you please get in touch.

Terry is a Saluki crossbreed who is approximately one year old.  Terry is shy when he first meets you but once he starts to come out of his shell his legs are made of springs! He loves nothing better than running around, playing with his doggy friends or his toys. Terry walks nicely on his lead. We think he could live with children age 10+ due to his size and giddiness. Terry is looking for a home where he can enjoy a good run about, long walks and a comfy bed in which to chill afterwards. If you think Terry could be your perfect match please call us.

Graham is a three-year-old Patterdale Terrier who is house trained and could live with teenage children. He’s always keen to please and he loves to sit for treats. He simply adores human company and will happily sit on your knee for a cuddle. He loves to go for long walks and to play with his toys. He’s one fussy, affectionate little dog, looking for a family to cuddle up to.

If you are interested in giving one of these dogs a forever home call the Jerry Green team on 01430 449112.
