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 January

Closure for current kennel site:

Please rest assured that this is not the end for Greyhound Lifeline. It is in fact the beginning of an exciting diversification which will further enhance our already successful re-training and greyhound preparation methods which ultimately lead to forever homes for these incredible dogs.

We will still be selling our greyhound products (see website for items) and greyhound food during this period but it will just be from a different location.  Please continue to ring/email and we will update you where and when collection can take place.

Nail clippings and corn removals will continue as normal please ring for a location to meet.

Car-boot items: please keep them coming so we can raise much needed funds for the dogs in our care and our future plans.  We will continue to need these items after we closem at our current site so we would be grateful if you can continue to donate these items.

We ask you to continue emailing either our fundraisers on [email protected], or alternatively contact us on [email protected]

In your email please list items you have so we can ensure we can take them.   We will answer your email as soon as possible.  We will inform you where you can drop off your donations or if local the team may be able to collect from you.

Through the forthcoming transition phase there will be fewer greyhounds available and for a short period there may have to be none available for adoption.

Trustee and management efforts must be wholly focussed on preparation and planning for the new working method. We will be unable to manage the care needs of dogs in multiple foster homes in addition to the above. Foster homes are therefore not required.

Contingency plans are of course in place to allow any previously homed greyhound a safe refuge and subsequent re-homing opportunity should the need arise during the transition phase.

We are excited by this new adventure and we hope you will be too.

Please keep watching our Facebook page and website as we will update both with more information as it becomes available.

Thank you for supporting Greyhound Lifeline’s work over the past 15 years. We look forward to being ready to help many more greyhounds find homes a little later on this year and onward into the future.

A Change To Our COVID restrictions:

As COVID rules and restrictions tighten, from the Government again, we will continue to stay partially closed to the public, please call us on 07769348310 to book an agreed time.

For ALL shop orders, we ask that you give us more than 24 hours notice, so we can collate your items and get them ready for your collection.  We have made this difficult decision to tighten our rules again to keep our kennel hands as safe as possible.  We will continue to take your orders and get them ready as quickly as possible but please remember we are still working on a skeleton staffing rota.  All items that are available to purchase can be found on our website under the word merchandise.

Nail clippings, corn removals and teeth scaling will all still be taking place but they will now be completed outside of our centre until restrictions are reduced again.

Please note anyone coming onto our site, will be asked to wear a face covering, even in the open areas and especially if we are working close to you and your greyhound, e.g. nail cuttings etc.  Please don’t be offended if we ask you to put on a face covering, hand sanitzer will be available for your use whilst on-site.

We value your support during this difficult period and are very grateful for your patience, some appointments may over run, with the extra cleaning between each one.

If you would like to discuss additional information about your visit, please call us on 07769348310.
