With annual running costs of £1.5 million, Jerry Green Dog Rescue is inviting dog owners to hire out its facilities as part of a series of new enterprising initiatives to raise funds.
Animal welfare is the top priority for the charity in Blidworth, Nottinghamshire which cares for rescue dogs until they find a forever home and relies heavily on donations from the public.
As part of a series of new fundraising activities, dog owners are being invited to hire out the centre’s secure, grassed outdoor space and specialist bathroom amenities.
The cost to hire the facilities is a recommended £5 donation per half-hour with all monies going towards the running of the charity’s five centres across Lincolnshire, Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire.
Jenny Harris, Fundraiser at Jerry Green, said:
We’ve launched this initiative for all dog owners, but hiring out our field space is particularly beneficial for those with more than one dog as it provides a large open space, away from traffic and the general public.
If you have a new pup which you want to train or your dog has a nervous temperament, it’s a great opportunity to get them on their own to relax, without the worry that anything might happen unexpectedly.
The recently refurbished site, which was officially opened in August 2015, is also offering the use of its shower room facility.
Our Blidworth centre is located close to a nature reserve, which is a popular with dog walkers. So if you don’t fancy getting your car dirty, or don’t have the time to wash your dog at home, then why not pop over to Jerry Green and make use of our dog-friendly shower room?
If you are interested in booking a slot, or would like to find out more about the Jerry Green facilities, please contact the centre on 01623 792886.
