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, washing powder, bleach, refuse bags, good quality dog food, 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.
EMDR Charity shop opening times...Opens at 9:30 and closes at 4:30 except Wednesdays and Saturdays when it shuts at 13:30, not open on Sundays.


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.

Rita is a really nice girl who truly deserves some good luck.  She was originally abandoned and waited such a long time to find a wonderful new home. Sadly her owner has just died and Rita now finds herself back at the rescue. Not only that she was also recovering from a broken leg but despite every effort the leg could not be saved. Rita is now desperately sad and trying to adjust to life on 3 legs after losing her wonderful owner. This poor girl will really benefit from some TLC to build up her strength.

Rita really enjoys a bit of fuss and attention and is a very loving girl. She has a truly amazing spirit and character to cope with everything life has thrown at her. She just wants a family to fall in love with her and offer her a forever home. Could that be with you?

Really desperately seeking a home ... We have a few overlooked boys and girls needing a home who have been with us too long




East Midlands Dog Rescue - Great Wall of China Trek 2014

Julie Gomersall is embarking on a fantastic five day trek along part of the magnificent structure of the Great Wall of China, over watch towers and mountains, through historic battlements and to the top of the 'Heavenly Ladder' at Mutianyo, which is almost a vertical climb of 1,000 steps. Julie is raising money for EMDR, who she says inspire her with the excellent work re-homing dogs and the special love and care they give to dogs that have been neglected, mistreated etc that many would give up on. Julie has paid for all the trip expenses herself so all donated monies will go straight to EMDR via this fundraising method which is brilliant. Please follow the link to donate on http://www.everyclick.com/joules-gomersall

IN EMDRs great new reception room the talented Emma Wilkinson has painted a tree of remembrance. This beautiful tree has leaves in full bloom with room to write in the name of a beloved pet who has crossed the rainbow bridge.

For a £5 donation your lost loved one can have their name beautifully written on a leaf and, if you wish, you can provide a photo and a few words and we'll put them on this website on the Gone but not Forgotten page.

We've lost four dear friends and they're all on the tree, it makes us smile to see them there :) 

Email garry.copeland@gmail.com with picture and words for Gone but not Forgotten page and send name and donation directly to EMDR.

27th October updated needing a home.  

SHOP VOLUNTEERS WANTED:  Our wonderful charity shop at 1 Malt Mill Bank in Barwell provides much-needed funds to pay for food and veterinary costs for our rescued dogs and puppies. We now need to recruit more volunteers to help in the shop serving customers and sorting through the donations. Previous experience is desirable but not essential. 

We have vacancies for both shifts of 9.30am-1pm and 1pm-4.30pm. We are particularly keen to recruit on our busiest days of Monday and Friday but all enquiries are welcome. Why not pop in and have a chat with the shop manager, Lynne? We look forward to hearing from you.
