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.

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.

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 09:00 and closes at 16:30 except and Saturdays when it shuts at 14:30, not open on Sundays.

When contacting us please be patient, this organisation is run by a small number of volunteers who, as you can imagine, have many many things to do and will get back to you as soon as they can.

We would like to say a warm thank you to all our girls (and Robert) who run our charity shop in Barwell.  We are grateful for their continued support raising much needed funds

Please come along to our shop where you will find many bargains!!


We would like to express our appreciation to Burns for their generosity in supporting us by providing free, regular & high quality dog food.  As a charity it saves us thousands of pounds a year and more importantly for our residents provides regular and healthy meals.

Without the support and donations of you all from big companies to big hearted individuals and families we could not do the work we do.

23rd October updated needing a home.   (We are having technical problems please bear with us!!)

We are a small organisation with big hearts but a small number of volunteers.  We home check every potential forever home to make sure all will be well.  Also all the doggies we re-home are part of our extended family and we like nothing more than for them to come and visit us again after they’ve found their new homes.  For these reasons we cannot re-home outside of a 25 mile radius of our centre, we hope you understand.


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 with picture and words for Gone but not Forgotten page and send name and donation directly to EMDR.

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

Marius is a really handsome ex - racer looking for his first ever home. His caramel eyes are exquisite.

This friendly, loving boy is such a fuss pot. He is very affectionate and will happily snuggle up for a hug. Marius is adorable with a beautiful heart.




Some kind people in Blaby are trying to find homes for some deserving dogs:-
