We are very pleased to announce that after more than two years of uncertainty, (resulting from the farm on which we are based being up for sale) that Greyhound Lifeline have secured a lease with the new owners to stay at our current site.
This is a huge relief for everyone on our team and it means that we will be able to continue our valuable work in the area where our core volunteer base can easily reach us. Most importantly it means that we still have our own kennel facility to house, care for, exercise, train and seek pet homes for our greyhounds from.
The terms of this lease are different to previously in that we must limit the total number of dogs on site at any one time. It is important that we start with and maintain a good working relationship with our new landlord. In order to achieve this, we need to comply with the lease terms mutually agreed upon.
We are grateful indeed to have been given the opportunity to stay on with the new owners, just as we are extremely grateful to the previous landowner for her good natured and generous support of us and our work over the past 11 years.
Please note that with effect from 25th February 2019 all volunteers (kennel hands included), visitors and customers must pre-book visits to our site which will involve bringing a non-resident dog on site.
We are asking for at least 24 hours’ notice of your dog’s arrival, details of the day/time you wish to bring your dog(s) and how many dogs you propose to bring. We will endeavour to give you a suitable appointment time, but please appreciate that we can only be as flexible as our lease permits and you may be offered an alternative time/day instead.
You can pre-book your dog’s visit by:
Email to email@example.com, by text or phone to 07828 138378 (Marie) or 07769 348310 (Lucy).
Please continue to support our work by respecting the above change to procedure and do not jeopardise our greyhounds’ futures by breaching the terms of our lease.
The above pre-booking applies to visiting dogs only. Volunteers and customers without dogs joining them are welcome during opening hours as per normal. Viewings remain by appointment only as previously.

Our greyhounds rather like their fishy dinners but our stocks are getting low, somebody has eaten all the fish! We would be rather grateful if you could donate a tin or two. The greyhounds seem to like best sardines and pilchards, we ask they are in oil, spring water or tomato sauce, please no brine. Lycan and his friends will be very happy to see the stocks reappear! Thank you.
