We’re still trying to raise £4,000 to help Jerry Green’s appeal to build new kennels for its pooches.

The charity is in need of funds to refurbish its kennels at its rescue centre at Algarkirk.

Help us Do It For the Dogs.

Help us Do It For the Dogs.

While the refurbishment project will cost £200,000 overall, we hope to be able to build the first new kennel for the block with the help of our readers.

The centre has seen 4,174 dogs go to new homes over its 20 years.

Nellie, a three-year-old Bichon Frise, came into the centre through the pound.

This usually means they are found as a stray but Nellie was actually signed over to the pound from a home.

She came to the centre in quite a state; she was very matted and had quite stained eyes.

But it didn’t take Nellie long to find a home after receiving the treatment she needed.

She was adopted by her new mum Rachel Houghton and partner Tom Luto from Swineshead.

Rachel said: “Nellie is the absolute perfect pooch!

“She has settled in like the furniture, in fact that’s where she spends a lot of her time, snuggled on the sofa.

“She also enjoys crawling under the quilt in bed despite having her own snuggly bed on the floor. She is a good foot warmer!

“She is so much happier and much healthier than when she came into Jerry Green.

“Nellie has completed our family, she definitely chose us!”
