East Midlands Dog Rescue is a group of volunteers who place abandoned and unwanted dogs in new homes. Among the many breeds regularly looking for new homes are often retired Greyhounds and Lurchers.
We are always in need of items on our Essential Shopping List, if you have any spare used clothes, bedding, washing powder, bleach, refuse bags, dog food (preferably Chappie), then please let us know.
A minimum suggested donation for adopting one of our dogs is £95 to help towards the running of the rescue centre. This does not cover the costs of helping just one dog but at least enables us to continue our operation.
Some kind people in Blaby are trying to find homes for some deserving dogs:-
If you would like to come and have a look and meet our residents, then the kennels are open every Sunday morning 10am - 1:00pm & Wednesday 10:00am - 12:00pm. All other times by appointment.
Marley is a real treasure still to be discovered. This handsome boy has spent the past 18 months of his life at another rescue. Heís been constantly overlooked and rejected for cuter, prettieÄr dogs. Itís such a shame as Marley has got bags of personality. He is very affectionate and simply adores people and children. The only downside is heís not keen on other dogs.
Ideally Marley will find a loving family who donít want to go for lots of walks but who instead have a nice garden for him to run around in. Heís a clever boy who already knows some basic commands and will love learning a few more. ¬ Why not come and meet him ‚Äď he really is adorable!

A wonderful supporter is going to run, walk and crawl a half marathon for us on May 11th this year. Itís not just the run but all the training and effort to get to the start line as well! We wish you all the best Elizabeth and thank you for doing this :) ... rather you than me! Please help encourage and support Elizabeth on the link below ...
We are thrilled to say that Zac, the abandoned Chihuahua, has made almost a complete recovery! As you can see here with one of our volunteers heís bright and alert.
Zac was in a terrible condition when found abandoned in a cardboard box and we really didnít expect him to survive, all we could do was to try and make his last few hours as comfortable as possible.
Perhaps his indomitable spirit buoyed by all those thousands of well wishes and prayers, as well as the tender ministrations of our vets, was what got him through.
Itís all better from here on in for this little warrior :)
We would like to say a big thank you to all of you who supported us in our efforts to save Zac, give yourselves a pat on the back!
A little over a year ago, an abandoned and pregnant Lucy was rescued in Spain and brought to us here at EMDR. Happily Lucy had eight gorgeous pups born on the 4th March 2013 all of whom have found their 4ever homes, Lucy too! To celebrate this happy ending and their birthdays we had a party here on Sunday where Lucy and her children were reunited and their owners could meet, swap stories and tuck into the lovely food prepared by our volunteers. So thank you to all the great people who took this Spanish family in and then came back to share in this special occasion! :)
The puppies are Spike (was Carlos), Diego, Freya, Estreya, Josie, Ludo (was Matteo), Rip (was Sparks) and Coco (was Sienna who couldnít be with us sadly but you can see how cute she is top middle picture!).
