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.

Kennel Closed (25/03/2020 until further notice)

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT GREYHOUND LIFELINE IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL VISITORS, DOG WALKERS AND KENNEL HANDS (EXCEPT FOR THE 2 REMAINING ON DUTY PERSONS WHO ARE SHARING OUT SHIFTS AND ARE OTHERWISE IN COMPLETE ISOLATION).

PLEASE DO NOT VISIT THE KENNELS FOR ANY REASON!

Please rest assured that the kennel greyhounds are enjoying the best of care. We are very grateful for the numerous offers of help we have received, but we do need everyone except our self isolating pair of 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 two people.

There are of course back up plans in place in the event that these 2 persons become unwell.

Our dogs continue their daily routine of being cleaned out, fed, groomed, exercised, being given play time with people and of course tooth cleaning continues too (much to Captain’s horror). The only thing they are going without is the same thing as us; group interaction with different people.

We are sure that once these socialisation restrictions are safe to be lifted our greyhounds will be overjoyed to see you all again.

We Wish you all Good Health:

We hope you and your loved ones remain healthy during this crisis and we look forward to the day when it is safe to resume normal service.  We remain available by phone, or email in the event you need to contact us.

Dog Food Sales:

Our dog food stocks are currently insufficient to continue selling dry feed to our regular customers. The feed we have on site is required for the kennel dogs. A new delivery however is expected on Monday 30th March and after that we hope to be able to supply our regular customers only by a pre-booking system and with immediate payment by bank transfer only. Please note that purchases will be limited to a maximum of 2 x 15kg sacks per household until further notice.

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, dog bedding and dog toys etc 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.
