Hi Worzel!

The kennel day shift has been modified for our current situation, however they will all be cleaned out, fed, groomed, exercised, being given play time with people and of course tooth cleaning too. The only thing they are going without is the same thing as us; group interaction with different people.

The seven kennel hands will work in isolation with a kennel manager on standby for emergencies.

We are very grateful for the numerous offers of help we have and continue to receive, but we do need everyone except our self isolating volunteer kennel hands to stay away. This minimises the risk of infection to them and maximises the well-being of our dogs who are totally reliant on these seven people.

New Dogs:

Fearghal, Sonic and Scrooge.

Reserved Dogs:

Buck, Stanley and Gael.

Homed Dogs:

Captain, Gadget, Simba, Droopy and Titan.

Homings:

The lockdown has severely limited our capability to home our lovely greyhounds using our normal procedures. If you are interested in adopting one of our hounds, please get in contact with us by either phoning – 07769348310 or by email on enquiries@greyhoundlifeline.co.uk. 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.

Events:

All Greyhound Lifeline fundraising and awareness events are cancelled until further notice. If you have committed to helping us or visiting us at one of our events please keep the dates noted. The future status of events will be determined by both a risk assessment and Government guidelines.

Appeals:

Our regular appeals for saleable items, are temporarily suspended. If you have the space to keep these items clean and dry until we are able to re-open then we look forward to be able to making use of them in the future.
