EAST RIDING: A pet rescue charity with a base in the region is hoping people will give a dog "the gift of love" this Valentine's Day.
Jerry Green Dog Rescue is a well-established charity with a centre in Gilberdyke and in four other locations across Lincolnshire, Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire.
It is urging dog-lovers to donate a shoebox full of doggie treats as part of its Love Us, Love Our Dogs campaign.
The charity is currently looking to rehome about 150 abandoned and unwanted dogs, all of whom need food and shelter as well as toys and the occasional treat.

Catherine Foster, head of fundraising at Jerry Green Dog Rescue, said: "We would welcome donations of dog biscuits, gravy bones and chews – anything that will help our dogs to enjoy the time they spend with us."
Jerry Green Dog Rescue was founded in 1961. It rescues, cares for and re-homes abandoned and unwanted dogs and undertakes never to put a dog to sleep unless its health or temperament make this the kindest option.
If you would like to donate, go to your nearest Jerry Green Dog Rescue Centre, ideally between February 9 and February 16. Visit www.jerry greendogs.org.uk to find your nearest centre.

EAST YORKS: Bridlington Arts Festival has donated a CD player to be used by school pupils with musical or artistic ambitions.
Pupils at Bridlington School have been benefiting from the use of their new equipment since it was handed over by Arts Festival chairman David Grange and Judy Wilson, who is schools co-ordinator for the Bridlington Arts Festival.
The CD player was bought by the arts festival organisers as a thank-you to the school for allowing them to use the school hall at short notice earlier last year. During that time the CD player broke down so the arts festival committee decided to replace it with a new one.
