Latest News at Greyhound Lifeline News and Updates

Greyhound Lifeline like to keep you informed of various events and happenings. Please check this page frequently as it is updated often.

Thank You PK's Pet Supplies.

We would like to thank Jess from PK’S Pets Supplies in Fleet for inviting us to hold a meet and greet at her store yesterday afternoon. We had a wonderful afternoon and the weather was unexpectedly kind to us as well.

We met lots of people, the greyhounds had loads of fuss and interest in greyhounds as pets along with the work we do was successfully generated.

Collection tins from the afternoon totalled an amazing £135.36 and in addition to that PK Pet’s management and customers were very generous in their donations of treats, toys and canned food for our resident greyhounds.

Thank you everyone who visited and to our wonderful volunteers and representative greyhounds who all did their bit for greyhound homing.  http://www.pkspets.com
