East Midlands Dog Rescue is small a group of volunteers who place abandoned and unwanted dogs in new homes. We never put a dog down and are here for their lifetime.  We ensure they get the best care.  We only rehome them within 25 miles of our centre.

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.


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 on Saturdays when it shuts at 14:30, not open on Sundays.

The centre will be closed on Easter Sunday.  We wish you all a happy holiday :)


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.

Penny certainly agrees as you can see from the pictures.

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.
