Kennel Open Day – Sunday 29th April


DOG WALKING IS BACK ON TODAY (Tuesday 20th March).
Thank you for co-operating and staying away during the periods of ice and snow.
Please continue to be cautious and drive slowly and carefully on entry/exit as some patches of ice (near the trees) may still remain at 11am.

Greyhound Lifeline are hosting their annual Kennel Open Day on Sunday 29th April at 11am – 3pm.

Lots of stalls and attractions are planned including plants, greyhound merchandise, homemade dog treats, Ark veterinary team, greyhound parade, BBQ and many more events to make a lovely day out for your family and of course greyhounds are very welcome too.

We are looking for a number of items to help us have a fantastic Open Day.

If you have anything that would be suitable as a raffle prize we would love to have it!

Do you have any empty hanging baskets that you no longer require?

We are also looking for fleece material for our coat maker to make some more coats. We are running low on material!

Do you have any dog equipment that you no longer require e.g. bowls, leads, collars, toys that could be used at our Open Day?

If you can help with any of the items listed above please could you pop them along to the kennels for us. Please mark clearly on the bag that they are for the Open Day and leave them in our office.

More information will follow as plans progress. We hope to see you all there.
