Pet Blood Bank Emergency Session

Thank you to all those who responded to our emergency appeal for canine blood donors. Our session on Saturday 14th January is now pretty much filled. Wonderful news for dogs everywhere!

Our next routine planned blood session will be on Sunday March 4th. We still need donors for that one and this time dogs that donated at our November session will be eligible to help again.

If you have a healthy dog weighing 25kg or more who is between 1 and 8 years old please call Pet Blood Bank on 01509 23222 and book an appointment to help save lives. PBB host sessions Nationwide, you don’t have to live near our kennels for your dog to become a blood donor. Full information about canine blood sessions can be found on our Pet Blood Bank Information page.

Our Latest Appeal

Did you receive some Christmas gifts that just aren’t your thing? If you did, rather than hiding them in a cupboard somewhere perhaps you’d like to donate them to Greyhound Lifeline and help us raise funds for the greyhounds in our care? Items may be used as raffle prizes, tombola gifts, they may be priced and sold as is, or if they are a little more valuable we may be able to sell them on ebay.

We Need Foster Homes

We still need foster homes, can you help? If at all possible we try to avoid placing greyhounds that have been in homes, are older, or have disabilities into the kennel. It’s much nicer  for them if a home environment can be found for them.

All our foster spaces are full at present and poor Ernest really is not happy in kennels. He desperately need a foster home so he can relax and enjoy life. Jack too has waited far too long for a chance of home living, he’s getting older now and it’s high time he had the benefit of some home comforts. Information about greyhound fostering is available. Please note that a home visit and in depth discussion will be required before fostering can proceed.
