A happy 'tail' to tell

Together, we're fundraising for local animal charities and sanctuaries through our Community Champions scheme. Here's just one of their stories.

Jerry Green Dog Rescue gives dogs a place to live and be cared for while a new forever home is found for them. 

It all began when founder Jerry Green set up the organisation in 1961, following the passing of his own beloved dog Rusty. He wanted a charity that could rescue and re-home stray and unwanted dogs and promote the humane treatment of all dogs.

Its first rescue centre was created in Broughton, North Lincolnshire. Today the charity has five rescue centres, including one each in North Lincolnshire, South Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire. We're fundraising for all three together, through our Community Champions scheme.

The charity offers grooming, doggy boarding and daycare, and more. 

It also has Enterprise Trainers who work with both Jerry Green dogs currently in rescue and dogs with owners. It's a chance for owners and their canines to build lasting bonds and raises money for the charity's work. Plus, by providing good training and a chance for dogs to socialise with others, it could ultimately lead to less dogs coming into rescue at all. 

Meanwhile its staff and volunteers care for dogs at its centres or raise funds, while others help by adopting dogs until a forever home is found. 

And thanks to all this work, there are lots of dogs with happy 'tails' to tell. Here are some of them...

Lenny (pictured above, first) was bought as a gift for an owner who unfortunately did not have the time to look after him. His owner made the best decision for him and brought him to Jerry Green Dog Rescue.

He was quickly adopted and is doing well - he's even getting ready to be a Jerry Green Ambassa-dog one day.

His new owner said: "Lenny is a cheeky, confident little chap with such a huge personality. We couldn’t imagine our home without him now and are so grateful to Jerry Green Dog Rescue for matching us together."

Tiny (pictured above, second) found a home with his new owner, who said: “We weren’t too sure about adopting an older dog but Tiny changed our minds about that. We were sold from the first photo we saw. 

"He can be a little skittish and boisterous but just wants to play and stretch his legs. 

"He is remarkably well behaved and you can’t beat the welcome he gives you when you get home. We can’t imagine the house without him.”

Barney (pictured above, third) was adopted from the charity's North Lincolnshire centre in June 2018. 

The team at the centre worked to help him overcome his shyness so that he was ready for his new home. 

Since his time began in his forever home, Barney’s cheeky side has come out and he loves playing in the garden with his toys and having the occasional dig.
