Dogs looking for homes enjoyed new-found freedom on Sunday with the official opening of a new exercise area at the Central German Shepherd Rescue centre in Pinchbeck.
The celebration at Highfield Kennels was well attended by all involved in the rescue and the dogs had great fun exercising.
Co-ordinator Loraine Walker said: “We raised £5,500 to build the area by holding events and fundraising days but more funds were still needed until one very kind local lady stepped in and donated the £1,000.
“The area makes a whole world of difference to the happiness of the dogs who will now have the freedom to run off lead, exhibit natural behaviour, play and socialise while being assessed for their forever homes. Football is proving to be very popular with all the dogs while keeping the volunteers fit too.
“We would like to say a very big thank you to the public for their support and without their generosity none of this would have been possible. We have some lovely dogs looking for their forever homes and if anyone is interested in adopting one of them please visit the our website for details.”
Central German Shepherd Rescue is holding its next fundraising event, a night of fantastic music with the Rockits – the World-famous Cavern Club resident band – at The Castle Sports Complex on March 12, 7.30pm to midnight with supporting disco and licensed bar.
