Reggie, Willie and Celt made a special journey down to Somerset at the end of August, to see Mo Boyt who recently moved to the area. She had organised a Meet and Greet with ‘Reggie’ being the special guest. All dogs were very well behaved and Reggie (one of the RGT’s sponsor dogs) even made it into the newspaper! The event helped to promote greyhounds as well as fundraise for the Retired Greyhound Trust.
Updates from the kennels:
We have been updating all of our greyhounds descriptions, some dogs have passed their small dog test and with further socialisation around smaller breeds they will learn to accept them as friends, others have videos of them playing with toys. The dogs that have passed their small dog test are Hannah, Willow and Bomber. Please see their pages in our ‘Greyhounds Needing Homes Gallery’ for videos and more information of these successful sessions.
We have a selection of canvas bags that are available to buy from our kennels during our opening hours. They come in two different styles – long or short handles. The greyhounds on the bags are all dog that have been homed by us. Little Reggie, one of the RGT’s sponsor dog features on some of them. Bags are priced at £6 each.
Please take a look at all the lovely greyhounds, most have updated descriptions, in our greyhounds for adoption gallery. We have some very friendly, loving greyhounds who have waited far too long for their forever homes. Could you give one of our hounds their dream home? Please take a look at our longer stay residents, these greyhounds have been with us longer than they should have been. Please help us to find them their forever homes. These greyhounds are – Willie and Hammy. Have a look at their descriptions, could one of them be the dog for you?
Tommy is two years old! He is a fun loving boy with bags of energy. We would love for him to find his very own home, he has far too much energy for kennel life and needs to find an active family who are looking for a playful chap. Please view his page for a short video of this happy boy enjoying life.
Please view all our greyhounds looking for their forever homes on our greyhound gallery page.

Dogs in Foster Care:
Reggie, Willie, Celt & Suzi are in foster care. If one of our foster dogs interests you as a potential new family member then you simply need to contact us and we’ll arrange a mutually convenient date and time for you to meet him/her.
Thank you to everyone for their very generous donations of bedding, towels and blankets. We now have so much in stock that we have to ask you not to bring us any more until further notice. We simply do not have anywhere to store it all! This is a lovely position to be in and we expect it to be temporary, so if you have the storage space at home we’ll happily take the donations off you at a later date once we have used some of the existing bedding up.
We are out and about at many local car boots and dog shows over these Summer months. We need your help! We are in need of stock suitable to sell at car boot fairs or at local fairs/events. The things we need the most are DVD’s, CD’s, children’s toys – including toy cars, jigsaws (adults and children’s), board games, console games and any boxed/unwrapped presents.
Used Postage Stamp and Ink Cartridge Appeal:
Many of you may already know that the Retired Greyhound Trust collect used postage stamps to raise funds for the greyhounds in their care. For some of you collecting the occasional stamp here and there and finally getting around to posting a collection off may be a bit of a nuisance. If you bring them along to Greyhound Lifeline we can send them off for you when we have collected a larger amount. We also collect old mobile phones.
