Latest News at Greyhound Lifeline News and Updates

Greyhound Lifeline like to keep you informed of various events and happenings. Please check this page frequently as it is updated often.

Updates for September

Bomber our 19 month old greyhound has passed his cat test. With further training and time we are hopeful he will learn to accept them as friends. He is looking for a special home of his own. Bomber would like children over the age of 8 years to play with, he has a huge character and lots of love to give to his new family. He would prefer an active family or some human companionship through the day to keep him busy as well as another dog to play with. Bomber has a fear of moving cars and for this reason would need a physically strong owner who could help him overcome this fear. If you would like to know more about this lovely lad please view his page in our ‘Greyhound Gallery’ or phone Lucy on 07769348310. Let’s find Bomber his dream home.


Updates from the kennels:

We have been updating all of our greyhounds descriptions, some dogs have passed their small dog test and with further socialisation around smaller breeds they will learn to accept them as friends, others have videos of them playing with toys.  The dogs that have passed their small dog test are Hannah, Willow, Bomber, Nico and Squeak.  Please see their pages in our ‘Greyhounds Needing Homes Gallery’ for videos and more information of these successful sessions.

2015 Christmas Cards:

We now have in stock the 2015 Retired Greyhound Trusts Christmas cards, there are four designs and twelve cards in a pack.  Each pack costs £4.  If you would like to purchase a pack or two, please come up to the kennels and buy them from us.

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? Please take a look at our longer stay residents, these greyhounds have been with us longer than they should have been.  Please help us to find them their forever homes.   These greyhounds are – Willie and Hammy. Have a look at their descriptions, could one of them be the dog for you?

Willie our longest stayer, enjoying some home comforts while he waits for his forever home.

Tommy is two years old!  He is a fun loving boy with bags of energy.  We would love for him to find his very own home, he has far too much energy for kennel life and needs to find an active family who are looking for a playful chap. Please view his page for a short video of this happy boy enjoying life.


Please view all our greyhounds looking for their forever homes on our greyhound gallery page.

Dogs in Foster Care:

Reggie, Willie, Celt & Suzi 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.


Thank you to everyone for their very generous donations of bedding, towels and blankets. We now have so much in stock that we have to ask you not to bring us any more until further notice. We simply do not have anywhere to store it all! This is a lovely position to be in and we expect it to be temporary, so if you have the storage space at home we’ll happily take the donations off you at a later date once we have used some of the existing bedding up.

Stock Appeal:

We are out and about at many local car boots and dog shows over this Autumn period.  We need your help! 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 – 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
