KENNEL CLOSURE - CORONAVIRUS

ATTENTION EVERYONE, IMPORTANT INFORMATION: 

In order to protect our kennel hands and ultimately the dogs in our care we regret to advise that entry to our kennel facility by anyone except the duty kennel hands is strictly prohibited.

NO DOG WALKERS are required until further notice, but please rest assured that the greyhounds will continue to be well cared for.

Customers for dog food and merchandise please phone 07769348310 to book in and if authorised please wait outside the gate to be served.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding. We hope you all stay healthy and safe and that you’ll re-visit as soon as this crisis is over.

 

Thank you Longacres Garden Centre:

On Saturday 7th March the team were out collecting, the first collection of the year!  The day was a big success, we met new people, some familiar faces, the greyhounds in attendance all did what they do best – cuddles and leaning on the very happy public.  The staff at Longacres were all very welcoming and lots of staff came out for a chat and a cuddle with a greyhound!

Carol and Sam with Hula, Ice, Izzy, Klein and Dynamo.

We raised during the day a massive £728.60 for the greyhounds in our care.  A couple of greyhounds from the kennels were in attendance too, they really did show how brilliant greyhounds can be and were very relaxed during the day!  Well done to Hula and Dynamo for their outing to the garden centre.

Thank you to the team of volunteers for all their hard work on the day and a special thank you to all the greyhounds that came along too!

Blake, Klein, Ferret, Ice and Dynamo.

Thank you Hammy, Lily, Ace, Ice, Izzy, Reggie, Hula, Dynamo, Blake, Klein, Arty, Ferret, Hope and Marshall.  We really did go to town with lots of greyhounds!
