We are sad to announce the passing of Max. His owners Siggi and Adrian hosted several walks for us from Ye Olde Bell and Steel Yard Woodbridge and The Ship at Blaxhall. Max lived to a ripe old age of 13 years and 10 months. Our thoughts are with Adrian and Siggi and we hope they are comforted by the many lovely memories they have of him.
In memory of Max they have generously donated £230. We are so grateful and thank them very much.
Here is Max cuddled up with Flossie above and just looking handsome below.
You might notice some changes to the website. In line with national re-branding of the Retired Greyhound Trust to the Greyhound Trust, we are now known as Greyhound Trust Suffolk. Rest assured, behind the scenes we are the same people working for the same outcomes – to provide bright futures and loving homes for greyhounds.
