Hello February!

Kennels Open Day

This years Open Day will be on Sunday 22nd May 11-2pm.  Please mark on your calendar and lets make it another huge success.  More information about the day will be made available nearer the time.

A plea from one of the stall holders – anyone who has any spare plastic pots or tubs would you be so kind to donate them to the kennels?  Please deliver to the kennels so we can pass them on to the family who are busy planting ready for the big day! Thank you.

Tazer one of our kennel dogs that joined us in August last year has made over the last few months extraordinary progress.  He came in with an extremely strong chase instinct but with intense training and perseverance he now is accepting smaller dogs as friends.  This boy has made some real progress.  Please view his page to see a short video of him with Chloe.

All of our recently homed greyhounds – Harry and Winston, Jenny, Jim, Panther (Milly) and Ariel are doing very well in their new homes.  Their owners are updating us regularly on their progress.  Here is a picture of Panther enjoying one of her many new beds!

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?

We still have, many long stayer greyhounds that joined us early 2015 or before this and are still looking for that special home.  These dogs are Hammy, Willie, Jake, Suzi, Susie and Lyric.  Please take a look at these greyhounds and hopefully 2016 will bring them homes of their own.

Stock Appeal:

Having a post Christmas clear out?  We would love to have your unwanted presents/items that we can sell at car boot fairs or at local fairs/events. The things we need the most are DVD’s, CD’s, children’s toys – including toy cars, jigsaws (adults and children’s), board games, console games and any boxed/unwrapped presents.

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. If you bring them along to Greyhound Lifeline we can send them off for you when we have collected a larger amount.  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.
