Moggies for the Doggies

News release

6th August 2013

Cats and dogs don’t always see eye to eye but The Moggies will be raising funds for the doggies at a charity event in North Lincolnshire next week!

1960s band The Moggies will be playing an outdoor concert on Friday 16th August at The Mount in Castlethorpe near Brigg in support of Jerry Green Dog Rescue, which is based in nearby Broughton.

Also performing will be Mia and the Moon, a female acoustic folk duo who appeared on the ITV show The X Factor last year.

Tickets for the event cost £15 and include a pie and pea supper. Pimms and ice cream will also be on sale and spectators can bring their own refreshments.

All proceeds raised will go to Jerry Green Dog Rescue, which has rehomed more than 500 dogs in the past year across its five centres in Lincolnshire, Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire.

“We’re extremely grateful to The Moggies and Mia and the Moon for agreeing to perform at our fundraiser,” said Catherine Foster, Head of Fundraising at Jerry Green Dog Rescue.

“They’re such brilliant acts we’re sure everyone is going to have a great time listening to their music.

“We’d also like to say a big thank you to Zara Grey from The Mount for supporting our charity and offering her venue for this event.”

Moggies for the Doggies will begin at 7pm on Friday 16th August and the supper will be served at 8pm. Spectators should bring suitable outdoor clothing, footwear and seating if necessary as well as a torch so they can find their way back to the car park afterwards!

Tickets are available at Jerry Green Dog Rescue in Broughton, The Mount in Castlethorpe and Brigg Office Supplies.

Notes to editors:

Jerry Green Dog Rescue was founded in 1961 in Broughton, Lincolnshire and is now one of the UK’s largest dog rescue charities. It has rescue centres in five locations:

  • Algarkirk near Boston, Lincolnshire
  • Broughton near Brigg, North Lincolnshire
  • Blidworth near Mansfield, Nottinghamshire
  • Gilberdyke, East Yorkshire
  • Thirsk, North Yorkshire

Jerry Green Dog Rescue has a caring ethos which puts the dogs in its care at the centre of everything it does. It also operates a policy whereby prospective adopters are introduced to dogs in a neutral environment away from the kennel, resulting in less stress for the dog and increasing the chances of permanent homes being found.

The adoption process at Jerry Green Dog Rescue involves a number of introductory visits and the rehoming team provide pre and post adoption support to ensure the move to the dog’s new home is as smooth as possible.

The charity receives no Government or National Lottery funding.  This means it is dependent on the generosity of public and corporate donors/sponsors.
