We are launching a new innovative rehoming, outreach and community support in East Yorkshire.

We will meet a challenging rehoming environment and cost of living crisis head-on by revolutionising and adapting our rescue and rehoming services across East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire. The traditional rehoming centre in Gilberdyke will amalgamate with North Lincolnshire’s, Broughton centre to provide increased services, higher standards of welfare and more outreach support.

A strategically placed Community Support Manager will remain in East Yorkshire to lead and provide rehoming, rescue, education and outreach support. The specially trained member of staff will support the regional-based intake of dogs, meaning the charity will still be on hand to help find forever homes for dogs in need of a safe, loving place to go while on their rehoming journey. Home from Home adoption and fostering provision will be the primary method of rehoming, whilst dogs in need of more support, training or medical aid will be housed in Broughton, cared for by an expanded, expert team.

We aim to increase activity in areas such as education, intervention, and supporting external services such as housing associations and food banks to meet the needs of dogs in homes. We will enable families to remain together through the cost of the living crisis were possible and prevent heart-breaking decisions from being made by families who cannot afford to meet their dog’s needs.

Whilst expanding the services this development will enable us to reduce overheads and consolidate our resources, allowing our generous donors’ funds to go further. We are actively working towards achieving financial sustainability, through challenging times.

Founded in 1961, we want to assure you that we remain true to our founding mission: To provide a safe and loving place for dogs to live until they find their forever homes. Donors’ support is actively encouraged to help fund these vital rescue spaces, outreach services and community support. For more ways to get involved please visit our get involved pages!
