The community has rallied round to help an animal charity which has opened a new shop in Skegness and has been overwhelmed by the support it has received.

Keith’s Rescue Dogs opened its shop doors at the weekend on Lumley Road and put a plea online for help in providing the essentials needed to set the business up.

Founder Keith Smith said: “We are very lucky to have been given the opportunity to occupy the shop. It has been all hands on deck to get it up and running since receiving the keys earlier this week.

“We are very grateful to all our volunteers who are giving up their time to run the shop and quite overwhelmed by the show of community support for our charity from locals and visitors to Skegness.”

The shop was opened by Deputy Mayor George Saxon and his wife Julie on Saturday.

Keith’s Rescue Dogs relies completely on donated stock to sell. Anyone with items to spare can drop them off at the shop or call Peter on 07752625043 to arrange local pickup of larger items.

All re-homing enquiries should go to 01754 763543 or 01205 750197.
