In past few days we have been happy to welcome several new arrivals all of whom joined us to look for an adoptive home.
Some (Joker and Ronnie to name them) have already found themselves reserved before we even had a chance to get them up on our web site. Well done Joker and Ronnie.
That leaves us with Belle, Hammy, Speedy, Max and Nando to introduce to you. Lovely dogs all.
A special appeal goes out for Max, who is now 10 years old. Although safe and settled into foster care this poor boy was unfortunate in that his previous owner has passed away. The remaining family did a wonderful job of looking after him for a while, but circumstances meant it was no longer fair to keep Max. The decision was sensibly made to give Max the chance of finding another permanent home.
Max is accustomed to walking beside a wheel chair, he could easily therefore adapt to a push chair if required. Please see Max’s page for more information and also please look at all our other greyhounds looking for homes.
Tipsy, Bracken, Swift, Lily and Wallace have all been homed during July.
Jessica, Jet, Moose and Bracken are reserved.
Belle, Hammy, Woody, Max, Ronnie, Speedy, Joker and Nando are our latest arrivals.
Our Reggie (used to be Roger) is now an official RGT sponsor Dog:
Our little chap Reggie has recently been accepted as an official Retired Greyhound Trust Sponsor Dog. Reggie suffers from an auto-immune condition of the eyes and he will require a selection of medications for life. Routine veterinary check up for Reggie are supplemented by periodic visit to a specialist opthalmic vet. If you are interested in sponsoring Reggie or another needy greyhound through the RGT then please visit his Sponsorship Page on the RGT web site.
Greyhounds in Foster Care:
Max, Joker, Jet, Roger, Rosie, Moose and Ronnie are 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 him/her.
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.
Foster Home Appeal:
We need more foster homes. Ideally we are looking for foster homes within easy traveling distance of Fleet, Wokingham, Alton or Southampton as we have trusted volunteer team members in those areas who would be able to assist with viewings if a trip to the kennels was not possible.
If greyhound fostering is of interest to you, then please visit our fostering information page to see if it could be the route for you.
