Updates for October

Kennel Updates:

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.

Kennel Training Sessions:

We have just had our first group training session, in the rain!  Rain never stopped us at Greyhound Lifeline!

The non sighthound dogs were very well behaved and although rather soggy by the end, they seemed to enjoy themselves too!  This exposure for our kennel dogs, really makes a difference, in helping them find new homes and becoming acquainted with unfamiliar breeds of dog.  If you would like to get involved with this project, then we are always looking for more volunteers.

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, twice a month?

If the answer is yes to the above we would love to talk to you! We have just 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.

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!

Fundraising:

Our fundraisers are getting low on stock.  Do you have a selection of unwanted gifts that you are wondering what to do with?

If you do then we’d love to receive them for fundraising purposes. Un-opened smellies, perfume, childrens’ toys, games (board and electronic), jewellery and small electrical items including power tools, radios, computer accessories are most wanted.

Unfortunately we cannot accept books (we’re severely overstocked with these already) or clothing.

Thank you to all who donate and support our work. Please contact us for information about where to drop off donated items.

If you are unsure about the suitability of your items please email our fundraising team on – fundraisingforgreyhoundlifeline@outlook.com.
