Lincolnshire Rescue Kennels has been rehoming dogs for 25 years. We have hundreds of dogs come through our doors each year and our kennels are now in desperate need of re-building so we can give the dogs that stay with us the environment they deserve. More

My name is Gemma and I’m one of the owners of Lincolnshire Rescue Kennels.  The rescue kennels were originally opened and run by my in-laws Peter and Louise and over the past few years my husband Charles and I have taken over the reins. But that’s enough about us, what you really need to know about are the amazing dogs that come through our doors day and night.  These dogs are sometimes found wandering alone or may have been brought to us by owners that can no longer cope with them.   Sometimes we are lucky enough to reunite a dog with their owner as they may have just been lost .

Whatever the reason the dogs come to us they are welcomed here and our team work tirelessly to find them their new perfect home. Some dogs need a lot of care and attention as its clear just from looking at them that life and sometimes people may not have been too kind to them.   We have amazing volunteers that come and walk our rescue dogs as they know just how hard a life in kennels can be for a dog and the time to get out and walk free is essential for their well-being.  Our dogs deserve an environment that is calm and peaceful, we want them to have space and warmth and comfort whilst they are with us because they may be rescue dogs but they still deserve all of this and we think maybe they even deserve it that little bit more.

This year is an exciting time for Lincolnshire Rescue Kennels because we are in the process of becoming a charity; our ultimate goal is to rebuild the rescue kennels and give the rescue dogs a fantastic place to stay until they find that perfect forever home. We have a huge task ahead of us and we are going to need as much help as possible. Although we know it will need closer to £100,000 to rebuild the kennels our first goal for this year is £10,000,small steps will hopefully lead to big changes. If you can help in any way we would love to hear from you. We will be doing loads of things throughout the year and if you can sponsor us in our crazy challenges, run a fundraising event on our behalf, or donate to us we would love for you to join us on our big build journey.
