Change a Life in Crisis

As the UK faces unprecedented levels of change, people and businesses are facing huge financial pressures, and with families only able to leave the house once a day, animal welfare is becoming a concern. To help ease some of this pressure, and try to keep spirits up in the community during this time, Jerry Green Dog Rescue have released some great information on their website. There are enrichment and training activities to help keep your dog’s happy and their brains engaged while spending more time indoors, fun things to keep the kids busy, and on their social media channels you can take part in fantastic virtual events including online dog shows, training challenges and quizzes to help pass the time.

Although Jerry Green Dog Rescue is keen to support the community during this time, they do also find themselves asking for support as Shelley Wilks, Head of Welfare explains: “We need help now more than ever to ensure we are there for the people, families and dogs who are facing difficult times. A huge portion of the income we are able to raise each year to support our rescue dogs has been wiped out by Covid-19, as events and community activities are cancelled or postponed. We are relying on our supporters now more than ever to ensure we are still here to care for dogs in need when this crisis is over.”

Jerry Green Dog Rescue believes that no dog should live in kennel for the long term, but when the difficult decision was made to pause rehoming, to protect key staff caring for their dogs, they knew it meant that dogs currently in their care would be there until the crisis has passed. It is a decision no rescue wants to make, these dogs deserve a loving home and a family or best friend. But unfortunately dogs like Bella, Rosie and Ralph now simply have to wait, with their dreams of a loving, forever family put indefinitely on hold.

There is a way you and your own dog can support these rescue dogs on their journey to their forever homes, and support Jerry Green Dog Rescue to care for them for as long as is necessary, by becoming a Jerry Green Dog’s Paw Pal.

With a £10 one-off donation, you can be the lifeline for a Jerry Green Dog in need. Becoming a Paw Pal isn’t just an accolade, you will receive this beautiful sponsorship pack, which includes a tag for your dog’s collar or harness, so they can proudly show off their support, as well as a heart-warming story of one of the dogs whose lives they have helped transform. The smart and fun design also makes these packs the perfect gift for loved ones. Become a Jerry Green Dog’s Paw Pal today and help change a life, www.jerrygreendogs.org.uk/paw-pals.
