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.

Raven is gorgeous. He's an unmarked greyhound who was abandoned by his previous owner and has clearly not had a very happy life so far. This lovely boy's coat has lost its shine and he still needs to put on a few more pounds as well.
Despite his sad start in life Raven is a lively, friendly boy who just wants to be loved and made to feel special. He is great with other hounds and adores people. Raven will make a great addition to an active family looking for a fun, affectionate boy.

Lucy and Buddy - Our international love affair!
Lucy, the mother of our beautiful pups, who traveled all the way from Spain whilst heavily pregnant has now had all her wishes come true! She has now gone to live with Buddy our Cyprus Hound, who was chosen before Christmas by Vernon and Lesley who love them both to bits. We love a happy ending :)
Fundraise for us and name a dog.
Emma, Rich, Eve, Archie and Huwie chose the name ‘Sparks’ for one of the puppies after Emma raised a fantastic £187 by making, painting and then raffling a toy box. Well done Emma!
Is there something you could do to help us raise much-needed funds? If you can raise more than £150 then you will be able to choose a name for a rescue dog and have your photograph taken with it. Please have a think about what you can do to help.
