Thank you:

This weekend we held our first ‘Cake and Bake sale’ at the kennels.  Caroline made a range of treats and over the two days we made £177.  All proceeds go to caring for the greyhounds in our care.  A big thank you goes to Caroline for organising this event and making all the wonderful cakes.  We all look forward to the next cake sale.

Updates:

Eric and Bolt have been reserved and will be leaving us in a few weeks once they have been neutered.  Well done to both boys.

Jenna and Serman are our latest arrivals, as we get to know them more information will be available.

Exciting News:

We would like to thank Tina K Burton, the editor of “Fifty Tails of Grey” for her generous support of our work.

Fifty Tails of Grey is a delightful book of true stories about rehomed greyhounds. These heart warming, funny and sometimes sad stories will show you why so many people fall in love with this sensitive, gentle breed.

Tina donates all the profits from this book to UK based greyhound rescues and Greyhound Lifeline are privileged to have been selected as one the groups that Tina is supporting this way.

Every copy sold makes money to support those wonderful animals we all love….the greyhounds.

The attached Amazon link will take you to a page where you can order Tina’s book. We hope you enjoy reading it.

If you have read the above book it’d really help Tina and lots of greyhounds too if you would leave a book review on the Amazon site. Once there are 50+ reviews we are told that Amazon start advertising the book themselves which hopefully will increase sales and fundraising even further!

Thank you in advance on behalf of lots of needy greyhounds throughout the UK.

Coat Appeal:

Our coat maker is running low on supplies, we are looking for soft fleece blankets and large colourful towels.  If you have any spare at home we would be grateful for them at the kennels.  Thank you in advance.

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!

Fundraising:

We will continue to require your donations of unwanted children’s toys, games (board, electronic and PlayStation/Xbox type), kitchen gadgets, utensils and crockery. Jigsaws, DVDs (not video tapes please), CD’s, ornaments and unopened/unwanted toiletries etc for fundraising purposes after 20th February when Greyhound Lifeline will become an independent non profit organisation. We hope you will continue to help us support greyhounds needing homes through fundraising sales as an independent, just as you have done whilst we were a branch of the Retired Greyhound Trust. After 20th February please contact us for information about where to drop off donated items or email us – fundraisingforgreyhoundlifeline@outlook.com.

Choosing a Boy or Girl Greyhound

Boy or Girl highlights the common problem in greyhound rescue and re homing of finding homes for the greyhound males. Perhaps after reading through the page you might give equal consideration to adopting a boy.
