Lincolnshire Rescue Kennels
 
Finding dogs their forever homes
Volunteers
There is nothing our dogs like more than a good walk across the fields whilst waiting for their new forever home.  So if you are over 18 years of age and have an hour or two to spare then please come visit and set some tails wagging.
 
We are surrounded by beautiful countryside which the dogs love to explore and as some dogs stay with us for quite some time a break from kennels can make a world of difference for them.
 
If you would like to volunteer please call us and one of the team will arrange for you to come and attend a health & safety induction, once this is completed then just sign in, pick up a lead and take a wander with a dog, its as easy as that.

Please note, we are not currently taking on any more volunteer dog walkers due to the low amount of dogs we have and high amount of volunteers we already have.
We also recommend that any current volunteers call us first on either the rescue number 01522 730502, or the clifftop boarding number of 01522 730235, before coming up to walk the dogs to save any disappointment at being turned away if the dogs have already been out a lot already that day.
We will update the page when we are taking on more volunteers, but all new dog walking volunteers will now have to be 18 years of age and above.
Sorry for any inconvenience and thanks for your understanding .
Fundraising
The Big Build
After 25 sucessful years of operating our rescue kennels are now in desperate need of rebuilding.

Appeal Update 
20th November 2015
Fantastic News
Thanks to all of the support Lexi has received over the past 36 hours we can now very happily say
 
'You did it!!!'
Enough money has been raised for Lexi to have her operations.  All of us here at LRK cannot quite believe the overwhelming generosity from so many people who have given to Lexis appeal and helped to spread her story.
 
We will keep everybody updated on Lexis' progress as she goes through her operations over the coming weeks.  Please check this page and our Facebook page to keep following her story. 
Thank you all again, it couldn't happen without you all.
UPDATE
Lexi found her forever home 12.1.2016 where she can recover in comfort after her operations 
 
 
A special appeal for Lexi
Lexi was brought to us in November via a local council.  Unfortunately Lexi has been very badly treated in her life so far and was in a very poorly state when she reached us.  As soon as Lexi came to Lincolnshire Rescue Kennels she was taken straight to The Veterinary Hospital and under went a consultation with the vet, Lexi was then given medications to treat her immediate health problems.
 
However Lexi is now in desperate need of an x-ray and two operations to bring her back to good health, this as you can imagine is going to be an expensive process and Lexi will need a lot of extra care during the weeks before, during and after her surgeries.
 
Some of Lexi's health conditions
 
Overbred - Lexi has been overbred, basically used as a puppy machine and had her last litter this year aged nine.  Due to this her teats are so saggy and hang so low they swing when she walks.  A further consequence of this is that she is riddled with internal mamory tumours (one has even broken through the skin).
 
Skin conditions – when Lexi arrived she was crawling with fleas , and covered in bald patches and dead skin.
 
Severe ear infections – As the ear infections have been left untreated her ear canal has closed up to just a tiny hole.
 
Claws so long, they grew into her feet.  This has left poor Lexi with a deformed and painfull toe, also the bottom of her paws were so sore and swollen she could barely walk and it was hard to see her pads.
 
Despite all this Lexi is very loving and trusting of humans , which is amazing considering what she’s been through , she deserves some love .
    
Lexi is a fantastic dog.  We would love to be able to get her the treatment she needs and once she has recovered would love to find her the loving home she really needs and truly deserves.
 
 
Many thanks for taking the time to read about Lexi and for donating and spreading her story.
 
From all the team at LRK

Running for Rescue - The Robin Hood Marathon 2015

So all the blood, sweat and tears were worth it as the full marathon course was completed!!  Ok so there wasn't really any blood or blisters surprisingly but there were lots of tears.
 
Thank you to everybody who supported this fundraising event, all the sponsors helped give much needed motivation and will make a huge difference to the Big Build campaign and the dogs.
