Are you able to buy a small extra present this Christmas? If you are then our kennel residents would love to receive some canned fish (in spring water, oil or tomato sauce) or some canned dog food. No fish in brine please, since salt is toxic to dogs. We get through a large amount of tinned fish each year and the greyhounds really do love it on top of their dinners! They would be really thankful for your kind donations.
Christmas and New Year Kennel Opening Hours:
Our Christmas and New Year opening hours will be the same as for every other day of the year that is from 11am until 1pm daily.
Christmas Homing Dates:
Please note that the last adoption day prior to Christmas will be Saturday 6th December. Normal homing’s will re-start on 1st January 2015.
Only in exceptional cases and in homes where there are no children resident will we consider relaxing this policy.The forthcoming holiday period can be a very stressful time for people and as such it is not generally a good time to bring a new dog into the home.
This decision has been made with the welfare of our greyhounds at the forefront of our minds. We hope that you understand our decision.
Viewings for greyhounds and potentially reservations will still be ongoing throughout the holiday period, so please continue to check for updates on our website.
Please take a look at all the lovely greyhounds, most have updated descriptions, in our greyhounds for adoption gallery. We have some very friendly, loving greyhounds who have waited far too long for their forever homes. Could you give one of our hounds their dream home?
Lucy and Matilda have been homed.
Deena has been reserved and will be starting her new life very soon.
Trixie joined us on 24/11/14, she is a black 3 year old.
Dogs in Foster Care:
Robbie, Lily and Reggie are in foster care. If one of our foster dogs interests you as a potential new family member then you simply need to contact us and we’ll arrange a mutually convenient date and time for you to meet him/her.
On Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th November we’ll be at The Holitic Hound and Horse Show which is being held at Normandy Village Hall, Surrey. For full details please see information below:
Fancy having a pre Christmas clear out to make some room? We are in need of stock suitable to sell at car boot fairs or at local fairs/events. The things we need the most are DVD’s, CD’s, children’s toys, board games and console games.
Used Postage Stamp and Ink Cartridge Appeal:
Many of you may already know that the Retired Greyhound Trust collect used postage stamps to raise funds for the greyhounds in their care. For some of you collecting the occasional stamp here and there and finally getting around to posting a collection off may be a bit of a nuisance. We also collect old mobile phones.
