Latest Greyhound Arrivals:
Daisy and Abbie are our latest arrivals. Both girls are in foster care and we hope to have their details on site soon. Abbie, who arrived in poor condition is improving rapidly. We hope to be able to make her available for adoption with a clean bill of health in the not too distant future. Daisy is in good condition. She transferred in to us from another rescue.
Greyhounds Expected Soon:
A new dog and a new bitch are expected in on Wednesday 14th.
Bodger, Duchess and Billie have been adopted.
Dodger and Max are reserved.
Greyhound Lifeline Newsletter:
We apologise that this year we won’t be releasing a newsletter or sending out Christmas cards to adopters. As much as we like to keep you all in touch and of course wish you a merry Christmas too we cannot justify the cost of doing so. Cards, postage and printing costs add up to a considerable sum that we feel would be better spent on feeding, housing and giving veterinary attention to the greyhounds in our care.
We hope to have regular newsletter available electronically in the new year. If you’d like to receive our newsletter then please join our mailing list. Please be assured that your email address will not be passed to any third parties and you can of course opt to un-subscribe at any time.
Special appeal for Jack:
Jack is almost 8 years old now and he’s lived all of those years in kennels. We would really like to see Jack in a foster or adoptive home before too long. He is an RGT sponsor dog yes, but that does not mean he’s not available for homing.
Jack is a special needs lad and he must be an only dog in a home without children. If you have a child free home, please consider taking Jack on or at least talk to us about him. There has to be a loving home for him somewhere surely? If long term fostering, rather than adoption is the best way forward to get him in a home then we’ll consider it happily. Please see our Fostering Greyhounds page for more information on what is involved.
New Greyhound Blog
We have a new greyhound blog on site for you to enjoy. Lady the Greyhound has written all about her experiences of life in a newly found home. Light and easy reading we think you’ll enjoy following her progress.
Festive Season Greyhound Homing
There will be no further homing of greyhounds until January 1st 2012. We may however, at our discretion and with the best interest of the greyhound foremost in our mind allow some adoptions to continue. Only homes without children where a quiet festive season is planned would potentially be able to take a greyhound home before January.
Viewings, homing enquiries and home checks will of course continue as normal and reservation of greyhounds are very welcome.
Christmas Appeal for Lifeline’s Greyhounds
We would love to have a full treat bin and a selection for toys for all our greyhounds this Christmas. If you can add a bag of dog treats to your weekly shop, find some unwanted soft toys, balls or even actual dog toys at home then Greyhound Lifeline would love to receive them.
Let’s make this Christmas special extra for the greyhounds and hopefully the food and fun will last well into 2012. Please make your donations in person at the kennels between 11am and 1pm daily.
