About the Organisation

Founded in 2009, SEDR rescues and re-homes dogs across the UK, primarily helping ‘death row’ dogs in council pounds who would otherwise be euthanized. It also helps members of the general public to re-home their dogs when their circumstances change. Over the years, it has gained a reputation for helping some of the most abused, starved and neglected welfare cases in the UK and is regularly called upon to help such vulnerable dogs. Some of the animals that go to the Rescue Centre cannot cope in a ‘traditional’ home environment and are given sanctuary at the Centre for the remainder of their lives.

Like many charities, SEDR is run entirely by volunteers. Being a non-profit organisation, it relies solely on donations and receives no government funding. From monthly donations or sponsoring a Sanctuary Dog to cleaning kennels and fostering dogs, financial and practical support are always needed and appreciated.

Per Mare Per Terram Lodge No 3609


Per Mare Per Terram Lodge No.3609 were very much aware of SEDR and the increasing strain it was under: people were finding life more and more difficult under the COVID-19 lockdown and were being forced for financial reasons to give up their dogs.  The Lodge was therefore happy to donate £400 to this remarkable charity.

Jamie Hastings, who nominated SEDR for its grant, said, “I wanted to help with buying food for the hounds, and when my Lodge supported my proposal I was extremely grateful to all of the members for their support. I was genuinely over the moon! I joined Freemasonry as I wanted to help those in unfortunate circumstances; no different to me becoming a Policeman. That help in my view is not restricted to just people. 

“Kymm White at SEDR does an amazing job. She spends her whole life tirelessly supporting our four-legged friends. I thought it was a fantastic gesture that the Lodge made to help out in this current time of need. 

 “I urge our members to visit her Facebook page, or see her on Instagram or go to her website at

Kymm’s response:

“I wanted to send a huge thank you to all of the Brethren of Pare Mare Per Terram Lodge for your generous donation for South East Dog Rescue. The last few months have been extremely difficult due to the pandemic halting all adoptions and fundraising, so we really do appreciate your support.

With sincere thanks,

Kymm and all the SEDR dogs”



SEDR is now facing eviction from its premises in September: the site where the kennels are rented has been sold to developers for residential housing.  Kymm White and her team are anxiously looking for alternative accommodation and are seeking additional donations urgently.  Please see the SEDR website for further details.
