We're supporting Jerry Green Dog Rescue in February
Who are we?
Jerry Green Dog Rescue was founded in 1961 and have had our doors open ever since to help find homes for unwanted or abandoned dogs. We believe there should be no such thing as an unwanted dog and give hope to dogs in need of a second chance. We exist to relieve the suffering of dogs who need care and attention by rescuing them, taking them in, treating them and caring for them, ensuring the best possible quality of life during their stay with us until we find them their new loving homes. We work with the local community to raise awareness about what makes a happy dog, sharing our knowledge through education about dog welfare and informing people about what we can all do to prevent cruelty and suffering.
Our pioneering approach to rehoming.
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 pioneered a new approach to rehoming dogs that we call Meet and Match. This fantastic system saw our charity move from open to closed Kennels, as we found allowing the public to walk around our Kennels severely heightened the stress levels of our dogs, and as a result, meant the dogs were not showing their full and true potential to adopters. Instead, we now invite people to come and meet our lovely staff, so that we can learn all about you, your circumstances and your requirements, before then matching you to your perfect dog. We then bring the dog out to you in one of our more relaxed meet and match rooms, allowing you to spend some quality time together. Last year alone we helped match 1000 dogs to their new loving homes using this process across our 5 centres.
How can you support us?
Jerry Green Dog Rescue are a registered charity who do not receive any government or lottery funding and rely solely on donations from the public; from the generosity of businesses and individuals. We need help from our supporters and community to help us continue the fantastic work we do- This could be anything from volunteering for us, making a donation, sponsoring our charity or holding a fundraising event on our behalf. Even spreading the word amongst friends and family about the work we do makes such a difference to us!
