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.
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.

Sophie and Beau are the original 'Wonky Couple'. She's only got sight in one eye and he's only got 3 legs! Between them they are quite something. Having always lived together, they are totally inseparable and must be rehomed together.
This dynamic duo both have superb natures. They are really sweet and extremely loving. Sophie and Beau hope to find someone amazing who is willing and able to give them their forever home. Come and meet this special pair.
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 email@example.com with picture and words for Gone but not Forgotten page and send name and donation directly to EMDR.
27th 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.
