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 9:30 and closes at 4:30 except Wednesdays and Saturdays when it shuts at 13:30, not open on Sundays.


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.




Approx 30 months


Stella has already spent half her life in rescue, she needs a home where she can shine and know the comforts a warm loving home can bring.
Stella is lovely and loving once she overcomes her natural fear of new things.  She is strong on a lead and needs to be an only dog as having been in kennels so long she's not had a chance to socialise. Can you give her a chance to put the years of rescue centres behind her?

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




East Midlands Dog Rescue - Great Wall of China Trek 2014

Julie Gomersall is embarking on a fantastic five day trek along part of the magnificent structure of the Great Wall of China, over watch towers and mountains, through historic battlements and to the top of the 'Heavenly Ladder' at Mutianyo, which is almost a vertical climb of 1,000 steps. Julie is raising money for EMDR, who she says inspire her with the excellent work re-homing dogs and the special love and care they give to dogs that have been neglected, mistreated etc that many would give up on. Julie has paid for all the trip expenses herself so all donated monies will go straight to EMDR via this fundraising method which is brilliant. Please follow the link to donate on http://www.everyclick.com/joules-gomersall

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 November 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.
