Big Shout Out To:

Thank You to Jollyes in Totton, we had a fantastic day with you on Saturday 25th May, during the day we raised £296.86 and two of our lovely hounds were reserved too!
Dogstival in Burley, the team had a great day at your event.  They had lots of interest in adoption and in particular the dogs that we had with us – Paddy, Milton, Giant, Banksy and Cargo.  Well done lads on being so good around so many different breeds of dog.

Walking Our Kennel Greyhounds:

If you would like to help walk our kennel greyhounds, please get in contact, we are always looking for new volunteers to help us and the greyhounds certainly enjoy their 1:1 attention.  All walks are local to Southampton and take place within a group situation.

Our Car-Boot Team need your HELP:

Their stock is pretty low which means they will soon not be able to attend anymore car-boot sales and therefore not be able to raise funds for our kennel dogs.  We desperately need your help.  If you have any items that are suitable for car-boot sales, please get in contact.

The following items are needed:

Jewellery (real or costume) includes broken gold/silver etc.

Watches (pocket’ wrist’ working or not)

Kitchen small appliances & kitchenware

Small Electronics

Phones, Cameras and Laptops

Tools (garden or DIY) & Garden Ornaments

Boxed Games, Jigsaws & Children’s Toys

Smellies (boxed or single)

Cigar boxes & Brass items

Vinyls

Dog leads, collars, toys, coats etc.

We cannot take – books, CD’s, clothes or shoes.

If your item is not on this list please do email in and ask if we can take it.

Please email [email protected] or alternatively contact us on [email protected]. These items are vital to our success as they bring in considerable and much needed funds for the greyhounds in our care.
