You may already know the story about our founder, and Rusty, the spaniel we celebrate in our logo. For those that don’t, Jerry Green set up a charity to rescue and re-home stray and unwanted dogs in 1961, inspired by his faithful and loving companion Rusty.
Jerry Green believed that far too many dogs were being put to sleep unnecessarily, a belief that has driven the charity’s activities since the creation of its first rescue centre in Broughton, North Lincolnshire. Now in our 58th year, we have five centres in North and South Lincolnshire, North and East Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire and since Jerry Green founded the charity back in 1961, we have been transforming the lives of abandoned and unwanted dogs by providing shelter and finding them loving homes. There are too few homes for too many dogs, so we’re always looking at ways to ensure our dogs have the best quality of life while they are staying with us and we try to find their perfect match. We are proud that we continue to be pioneering in dog welfare and rehoming. Our Meet&Match® approach to rehoming, first introduced in 2004, we now see being introduced by other charities as the best way forward for dog welfare. During 2018 we accepted in to our care 664 dogs and successfully rehomed 792.
Our North Yorkshire centre was opened in 1974 by Alf Wight, author of the famous James Herriot books so we have been supporting the Northallerton area for over 40 years.
