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


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



5 Years 




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.

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.

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




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.

18th September updated needing a home.  

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.

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.


Please note that outside of the 2 open mornings only ONE person lives/volunteers at the rescue centre.  We do our best to answer all queries but please be patient.  We rehome within a 25 mile radius of the centre which is a large area and we would be grateful if this could be respected.  If you are interested in any of our dogs then you will need to visit the rescue.  Our dogs cannot be reserved by phone or email. Thank you.


A big THANK YOU !!

To all those who helped with our fundraising day on Sunday 14th August. 

Pictured left is Steve Walker, though ‘Runner’ might be a more suitable name, who doggedly endured three hours solidly pounding his paws on a treadmill and raised over £475.  The walkers homed Betty, Dixie and Charlie for us so huge gratitude.

Linda Parry with Bertie raised £80+ and Tracey Ison raised £134+ by hosting Tombola stalls.  Shaun Crane with Louie raised over £100 selling some his paintings.

Over £800 was raised in total and will be spent paying the never ending vets bill. 

We do all we can to make sure our doggies are fit & healthy and have every chance at a long and happy life (hence hefty vet bills) and our support for them doesn’t end when they are rehomed (hence 25 mile radius).

We couldn’t do our work without your help and support so a huge genuine thank you.
