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, 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.
EMDR Charity shop opening times...Opens at 9:30 and closes at 4:30 except Wednesdays and Saturdays when it shuts at 13:30, not open on Sundays.

Trigger is a handsome boy with beautiful soulful eyes. He hasn't had a great life so far and is a little hand shy. Trigger is hoping to find a loving family preferably with older children and a secure garden 

Trigger will need to be treated with kindness to help him build up his trust.  He'll also benefit from learning a few basic commands.  Trigger is a real sweetheart and deserves to find love.

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




Charlie's belated 15 year Birthday Gift

Charlie was helping to fund raise for EMDR before she was 3 years old; at tombolas, shouting 6 tickets for a pound, cuddles for dogs and tin shaking. Charlie and her family moved to Cyprus with the RAF but each time they come home on leave, Charlie helps at the EMDR Rescue Centre.

In Cyprus Charlie has been giving up her Saturdays to help out at a Rescue over there. There are so many dogs needing homes and never enough people - half as many as in the UK. We talked at Christmas about the situation as she so desperately wanted to help. I asked if she would like to give a dog a chance in the UK for her birthday gift. Charlie found it very difficult to choose from so many but in the end she picked 2 - Katy and Bono (see their pictures in Dogs needing a home.  These beautiful dogs are the result. Well done Charlie - I'm so proud of you. Grandma (Lynne Simpson).

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.

17th August updated needing a home. 

Please note: the rescue centre is run entirely by volunteers and we do our best to find the right owner for each dog. As a small independent charity we prefer to rehome dogs within a radius of approximately 25 miles.
