January's Exciting Updates

Some very exciting news!!


We are hugely excited by the fact that Robbie has some serious interest on the adoption front.  We don’t want to jinx anything for him though as it is early days still, so all we can do is keep everything crossable crossed, give it a little time and see if his family has found him.  Please keep your fingers crossed for our long stayer Robbie.

Updates from the kennels:

Little Eliza who has received treatment for a poorly tail, is on the mends she is enjoying some home comforts and learning what home living is all about.  Below is big foster brother Lurch with Eliza on the right.  Please view her updated description, maybe she could be the young lady that you’ve been looking for?



Rocky’s corn treatment is going well, he has another week wearing his special boot.  The vet is very pleased with his progress so far.  He has settled into home life very well and is enjoying his home comforts.


Thank you:

We would like to thank Mo Boyt for all her hard work, she has been our Southampton based volunteer who has supported us by doing home checks, fundraising, organising ‘Meet and Greets’ and collecting lots of bedding and car boot bits.  Mo we are all going to miss you but we now have a Somerset/Devon home checker!  We look forward to hearing about all your exciting news!!

Available Greyhounds:

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?

Dogs in Foster Care:

Robbie, Reggie, Misty, Eliza and Rocky 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.

We have had an overwhelming number of donations recently which means we have lots of duvets.  Thank you for the supply as we get through a lot of them.  Currently we do not need anymore duvets.  If you are having a clear out of blankets or towels we would still be very grateful for these.  In the winter months we use them as the under layer to the greyhounds beds with paper bedding on top. We would appreciate any spare blankets or towels that you may have as our stocks in these are getting low.  Thank you in advance.

Stock Appeal:

Fancy having a post Christmas clear out to make some extra room for all your new gifts? 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, jigsaws (adults and children’s), 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.

Fundraise for us using eBay:

You can sell items on ebay and choose to donate between 10% and 100% of your sale price to Greyhound Lifeline. If you are an ebay member you could also simply donate by using your Paypal account. For ebay members only please visit their Sell for Charity page and enter “Greyhound Lifeline” in the Charity name area. If you are a UK tax payer please also tick the Gift Aid box. Please read ebay’s terms and conditions carefully as we cannot be held responsible for any problems you may encounter. Could you sell your unwanted items and help us to buy food, provide veterinary care and generally look after the greyhounds in our care at the same time
