Sunday 23rd June is the day of the Great British Greyhound Walk where sighthound owners nationwide will get together and walk (at various locations) to raise awareness of greyhounds in particular , but sighthounds generally. It’s a social event and we hope you’ll make the effort to go along and join a walk near to you.
Greyhound Lifeline have organised a walk to support this event and it starts at 10am from the Devil’s Punchbowl, Hindhead, Surrey. Please see our GBGW walk page for full information including directions, parking charges etc.
In fact there will be two walks, a short one for the less physically able people and dogs and a longer one for those who are able to walk a little bit further. We hope to see lots of you there with your assorted sighthounds.
There are however numerous walks all over the country, so if that one’s isn’t convenient for you then just check out the GBGW web site and perhaps you’ll find one a little closer.
Danny and Joe have been homed.
Manny, Ebony, Ash and Faith are reserved.
Greyhounds in foster care:
Niki, Jet and Poppy (previously Isla) are all in foster care. If one of our foster dogs interests you as a potential new family member then you simply need to call us and we’ll arrange a mutually convenient date and time for you to meet up.
Thank you Fiona:
Fiona Selby has recently completed her fundraising sponsored slim. Not only has Fiona lost an amazing 2 stone and 6 lbs, she managed to raise the wonderful sum of £105 for Greyhound Lifeline at the same time. Well done Fiona!
Food Voucher – any offers?
Bran the greyhound recently won a £50 voucher to spend at Vets Food World and he has very kindly donated that voucher to Greyhound Lifeline so that we can raise some funds by offering it to whoever makes us the best offer. Thank you Bran for your generosity.
Please visit the Vets Food World website and see if there’s a food there that you might like to have for your pets (food available for many animals, not just dogs). If you make us the best offer we will advise you the activation code and the food can be delivered to your door free of charge. Two restrictions apply: The voucher is for one use only and your order must exceed £50 to be able to use the voucher.
New Poems on site:
We are very pleased to have been able to add two poems written by Pam Lonnen to our web site. You can find Pam’s poems along with many by another author Tracy Errington in our Greyhound Poems section. Pam has very kindly given her permission for us to use them and we hope you’ll enjoy her light hearted look at life through Josie Greyhound’s eyes as much as we did.

Don’t let Lungworm kill your dog!
Please be aware of Lungworm, it’s a killer that many of you won’t necessarily have heard of. It is spreading fast in the UK and many dogs have already died from it. Don’t panic however as Lungworm is very easy to prevent and equally if diagnosed early it can be treated very successfully too. Late diagnosis of Lungworm does not always have a happy ending however.
The following link will take you to a Lungworm Information site. For preventative treatment of lungworm you will need to contact your vet. Treatment/prevention of Lungworm is by prescription medication only.
