Busy Weekend At The Meadows, Camberley

Last weekend the team were out at ‘The Meadows’ in Camberley, raising awareness to the public about greyhounds making good family pets.

We would like to say a big thank you to all who came along to this event, volunteers who gave up their time to talk to the public, the public for their very kind donations and to the Meadows shopping centre for allowing us to be there for the two days.  A special thank you to George (the centre manager) and the security guard on duty for making the team feel so welcome.

Jo, Tanya and Linda with Hope, Blake, Joe and Ice.

The weekend was a huge success and not only did we manage to raise a massive £1,140.36 for Greyhound Lifeline, with 100% of this being used to care for the greyhounds in our care but more importantly raising the awareness of this breed of dog.  The greyhounds in attendance were all very well behaved and are a credit to the breed and their owners.

3 Cheers for Tricia!

On Sunday 14th April Tricia, who adopted Connie from us, ran the Brighton Marathon in aid of Greyhound Lifeline. We are very proud of her efforts and she managed to achieve it in 5hrs 40mins.  Well done Tricia and thank you for supporting our charity.

Kennel Update:

Please note all volunteers (kennel hands included), visitors and customers must pre-book visits to our site which will involve bringing a non-resident dog on site.

We are asking for at least 24 hours’ notice of your dog’s arrival, details of the day/time you wish to bring your dog(s) and how many dogs you propose to bring. We will endeavour to give you a suitable appointment time, but please appreciate that we can only be as flexible as our lease permits and you may be offered an alternative time/day instead.

You can pre-book your dog’s visit by:

Email to enquiries@greyhoundlifeline.co.uk, by text or phone to 07828 138378 (Marie) or 07769 348310 (Lucy).

The above pre-booking applies to visiting dogs only. Volunteers and customers without dogs joining them are welcome during opening hours as per normal. Viewings remain by appointment only as previously.
