Want to play Swapsies?

Swapsies is a game we teach the dogs at the rescue to help them to learn not to ‘guard’ items from people and other dogs. It involves swapping treats or toys of higher value that the item they are guarding. This helps them learn that what we have is much more exciting than what they want to keep.

So with that in mind we have decided to launch our very own version of Swapsies, to help raise money for our rescue dogs to get the improvements they need to make the kennel environment a more calm, relaxed and spacious space while they wait for their forever home.

People Swapsies is super simple, we are asking you to swap something you would usually buy or do for a donation to the South Lincolnshire Kennel Build Fund.

What do you get in return you ask?

A warm glowing feeling that you have done something absolutely amazing for a Rescue Dog in need of your help, our huge appreciation for your help and the knowledge that you have made a tail wag today!

So people of the world lets get swapping!

Could you swap a purchase of a bottle of wine this weekend for a £5 donation to the dogs?

Swap a trip to the cinema for a £10 donation.

Or instead of a meal for 2, give our dogs a £20 donation.

Its not just you either why not get your workplace or community group involved?

There a million ways you can join our Swapsies campaign as an organisation or business. Do you fancy swapping your suit for jeans in aid of Jerry Green’s? Who doesn’t love a non-uniform day? Swap the shop bought lunch for last night’s left overs  and donate your lunch money to Jerry Green Dog Rescue.

Are you a club or community group that wants to give back and like to get involved with things going on in your area? Why not pledge just one week’s subs to help towards our South Lincs Build Appeal.

It is just small thing to give up but if everyone gets involved we could swap the dogs old tired kennels for the brand new ones they deserve! Come on, Do it for the Dogs!

Share your swapsies with us on social media and let us know what you gave up for the dogs.

Want to know more about the South Lincolnshire Kennel Build Project?

Our South Lincolnshire centre is undergoing major structural and cosmetic changes, we want our dogs to have more home like, warm and spacious kennels that make them less sad about being away from a home environment. 20 years ago our kennels were at the highest standard of welfare but today they require refurbishment and renovation to bring them up to scratch.

It will cost us £200,000 to complete the works which we need to raise by the end of 2018. We have lots of different appeals that you can get involved in, so if you would like to know how you, your workplace or community group could get involved in this project contact the fundraising team on:
