Success at the Fleet Street Collection

On Saturday 22nd September the team were out in force along Fleet road collecting for Greyhound Lifeline.  It was a gloomy day with lots of rain but despite the weather, the volunteers were all determined to remain cheerful and raised a massive £590.05 for Greyhound Lifeline.  We would like to thank all of the volunteers for giving up their time and everyone who came along and donated to the greyhounds in our care.

September has seen five greyhounds find their new homes and we have one other that has been reserved so far. Well done girls and boys.

Our longest stayer greyhound in our care is Annie who has been with us for 16 months, she is a fun, loving girl who needs a confident owner to keep a check on this spirited little lady! Please visit her own page under the Greyhound Gallery for more information on her.

Meet playful Annie.

Kennel Training Sessions:

Do you own a non sighthound dog?
Can you help our kennel greyhounds?

We are looking for non sighthound dogs to help us in the training and socialisation of our kennel greyhounds.

Would you be prepared to help us once a month?

If the answer is yes to the above we would love to talk to you! We are looking to set up a training group on a Saturday to help our kennel greyhounds adjust to the ‘outside world’ with other dogs. We are looking for large, medium, small, fluffy, calm, excited – all characters, non sighthound breeds to help us set up this group.

If you are interested in this project please get in touch. You can phone Lucy on 07769348310 or email us at enquiries@greyhoundlifeline.co.uk to find out more information.
