Helping dogs for 60 years: Jerry Green Dog Rescue celebrates birthday with art exhibition & auction

From August 5th through August 7th 2021 (9am-4pm), Jerry Green Dog Rescue will present an exhibition and auction of works by local artists and Jerry Green Dog Rescue supporters at The Buttercross in Brigg.

Free to enter, the exhibition based on themes of the 1960’s, four-legged friends and “In the Country” looks to celebrate the charity’s 60th birthday. More than thirty art works including a wire sculpture and art from the renowned Dennis Nash form the centrepiece of the exhibition.

The foundations were laid and re-homing of dogs started in 1961 in North Lincolnshire. Over the years, the name and reputation has been widely acknowledged as Jerry Green Dog Rescue expanded across 3 counties.

“The exhibition and auction have been made with the local community in mind. Jerry Green Dog Rescue is lucky to have been supported by North Lincolnshire people for 60 years,” said Ellis Michaels, Fundraising Team Leader.

“There’s no better way to show case our gratitude to the people that have helped us save the lives of over 40,000 dogs than an exhibition full of colour.”

The birthday celebrations will include elements from Jerry Green Dog Rescue’s history, refreshments and dog welfare educational activities.

It’s a celebration for all, young to old, dog-owner, to cat-servant to art-appreciator. More information can be found at www.jerrygreendogs.org.uk or on the charity’s Facebook page.
