Our Festive Opening Hours

We would like to wish all our volunteers and supporters a very Happy Christmas and to say a huge ‘Thank You’, for continuing to support the work we do throughout this very challenging year.

It has been a difficult year for many but Greyhound Lifeline has grown in strength and has helped existing greyhound families, new families, greyhound trainers and especially all the greyhounds that have come into our care, throughout the year.  We wouldn’t have been able to do this without your support of monetary donations as well as other donations too – dog food, dog equipment, bedding, taking dog coats to wash and mend and so much more!

We are a lifeline not only for the greyhounds but their owners too and we will always be here to help and assist those that need us.

Please be reassured that our kennel dogs will be well looked after over this festive period, we will still be onsite caring for our kennel greyhounds 24/7 but we are able to give our kennel hands some much needed TLC too!

Most of this year we have been running on a skeleton staffing; to ensure we could all keep safe and continuing to help the greyhounds, who have needed our help.

We are still taking adoption enquiries through this festive period, if we don’t have a suitable greyhound for you and your family we will add your details to our waiting list and I’m sure it won’t be long, in the New Year, that we will find you one!  Please get in contact with us by either phoning – 07769348310 or by email on enquiries@greyhoundlifeline.co.uk and we will be happy to talk to you about adopting.

We can discuss with you, how you can move forward, with adopting one of our greyhounds. We will treat each enquiry on an individual basis and we can discuss with you different options that are available for your circumstances.
