Welcome Raggy!

On Saturday 30th September, Greyhound Lifeline had a street collection in Fleet.  We had a fantastic day, along the High Street we had four collection stations.  The greyhounds were all very well behaved – Lottie, Annie, Calli, Hammy, Arty, Jim, Snoopy, Mr T, Reggie, Blake and Izzy all attended.  Thank you to their owners for coming along too!

We had a lot of enquiries about how to become a volunteer as well as a keen interest in the greyhound representatives from the kennels, resulting in Snoopy having a viewing the very next day and he is now reserved.

The street collection raised a massive £638.92, thank you to everyone who came along and supported us.

Snoopy has been with us in kennels since February, he is a very special boy and we are all very excited that he has found his very special home.  Well done Snoopy.

A poem written by Snoopy and friends.

I may be a boy,
I may be larger than my fellow kennel mates,
I may not be perfect,
I may not be blue, white, fawn or brindle,
BUT…..
I know how to lean and give you those big puppy eyes,
I love to please you,
I’m trying my very best,
I can still have fun and lots of it!
I’m being very patient waiting and waiting,
All I want is my own family.

Toy Appeal:

We are getting low on soft toys for our kennel hounds, if you have any spare dog toys at home that you wouldn’t mind donating our greyhounds would love to have them!  Please can we ask that they are non-squeaky toys, thank you.
