We know that everyone wants to do all they can to help during this health crisis, and to reduce risk to the most vulnerable members of our society, and for many of us that unfortunately means lengthy periods at home. But there’s only so much Netflix we can watch isn’t there? Well that’s where we can help!

Before you start dusting off the board games, give some of our boredom busting activities a go! You can find below lots of things that will keep you busy, tick off a few things from that to do list that you just can’t get round to when life is back to normal, and perhaps help our wonderful rescue dogs at the same time. We’d love to see if you give any of them a try, share with us on social media using #JGBoredomBusters!

Spring Clean!

Use your time at home to finally sort through that junk drawer, or really clean behind the sofa cushions, that’s one thing off your list and as a bonus, any loose change you might collect can be donated to Jerry Green Dog Rescue.

Sell Online!

List clothes on Ebay that you never wear, or if you love crafting, why not try sell some of your wares on sites like Etsy. Starting your own little enterprise will keep you busy & motivated, and who knows, might lead to something big for the future! You can also donate a small percentage of your profits to keep our dogs warm & cosy in our centres.

Take on a challenge!

Why not take on a challenge and raise funds through sites like Virgin Money Giving, Facebook or JustGiving. There are loads of fun things you can do from the comfort of your own home, why not climb the equivalent of The Shard using your own staircase, run a 10k in your back garden, or swap beds with your dog for the night! Share your exploits with your family and friends online and encourage them to join in, a sure way to keep everyone active and entertained, and raise vital funds for our pooches.

Homemade Dog Treats!

Bake some treats for your dog that they will love! With simple ingredients that most will have in the cupboard, these will be a fun activity that the kids can get involved in and your dog will certainly appreciate your efforts! Why not use them to teach a new trick! Get the recipe here. In an airtight container in the fridge, these yummy biscuits will last up to two weeks!

Join in!

Jerry Green Dog Rescue are going to be putting on some amazing online events for everyone to get involved with, so keep an eye on our Facebook page and join in the fun!

We also have lots of fun things for the kids to do, over on our kids activity page!
