Shirley adopted lovely Nyla from Jerry Green Dog Rescue in Thirsk a few years ago and I was impressed by the care and commitment shown to the rescue dogs.

Feeling supported

Shirley says “I’ve been involved in fund raising for a couple of years now and this year I’ve also volunteered to do admin duties for a few hours a week. It was a bit daunting at first, but I’ve always felt supported and that I can ask for help. I love that I often have one of the dogs to keep me company and assist me in my office duties.

If I can play even a small part in the valuable and worthwhile work of Jerry Green Dog Rescue, then that gives me satisfaction…and I enjoy it!”

We say; ‘We certainly love having Shirley around and really appreciate her help and support.’

From fundraising to admin, from dog walking to fostering, there are lots of ways that you can get involved and the teams at the centre's will provide any support needed. We always grateful for the help our volunteers provide. To find out how you can help click here.
