The A12will be closed at Capel St Mary in cluding outside of Dillymore from 9pm Friday 22nd May until Monday morning. If you were planning to visit kennels please rearrange.
Occasionally some of our dogs need a little help understanding good dog manners in certain situations and around other breeds of dog. Sometimes they quite simply lack confidence in the outside world. Sometimes it’s a mixture of all of these things.This has been the case with Daphne (Olddavey’s Lady) and Mac (Droopy’s Mac).
Yesterday to help them on their way to finding their forever homes they attended a doggie workshop with behaviorist Pat of Mills Mutts
.It was such a worthwhile experience for them. Both were far less reactive by the end of day. Daphne walked beautifully past Inca the Visla and Mac gained so much confidence that by the end of the day he no longer felt the need to attach himself like Velcro to his Volunteer Barbara’s leg.
We know there is still work to be done but we are immensely proud of the progress they made and are confident that with an experienced owner or someone who is happy to work with them, both will make lovely pets. They are such affectionate little souls we hope they each have their chance very soon.
Charlie (pictured), T.J, Daphne, Master, Mac, Finlay, George, Kieran and Jimbob wish you all a very Merry Christmas and they thank from the bottom of their great big hearts for all of the wonderful gifts you have sent them.
You have really made their Christmas Day and they will be enjoying some of their lovely treats well into the New Year.
All at Greyhound Trust Suffolk would like to take this opportunity to thank you all so much for the support you give us not just at Christmas but throughout the year, for following our page and most importantly for the kindness and support you show to one another via our Facebook page when one of our beautiful hounds crosses the bridge.
What a lovely community.
We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.

Going on holiday? Weekend away? or maybe just a day out? Perhaps you would like your Greyhound to be looked after in the comfort of another Greyhound family home.

Many thanks to Lauren and all at Jimmy’s Farm who made us so welcome when we visited yesterday and to those who stopped to say hello.
Kennel dog Dillymore Jack came along and behaved extremely well enjoying so much love and attention as well as a bag of Quavers!
Teddy Bear Matty also arrived for his first official engagement as a trainee Ambassador, Matty has come on leaps and bounds since going home.
Many thanks to all who sent donations in memory of June, proud owner of the much loved Meadow. June was a lovely lady who always stayed in touch, we are so grateful for the wonderful home she gave Meadow.
We have written to those for whom we have an address but to those we don’t thank you very much indeed. We have been self funding since March 2020 and all donations will be used to help cover the kennel fees, Vet bills, worm and flea treatments, collars muzzles and coats and any other costs incurred for the dogs in our care and of course for special treats for them all.
We are happy to say Meadow has found happiness again with a new family, she also has a friend and house mate Danny (Listen Danny). Thank you all for your kindness.
A lady has kindly made us some Greyhound themed parcel tags (with strings). There are 20 in a pack of mixed colours and shapes.We are selling them at £3 per pack to include postage.If you would like to buy some please contact our Volunteers Bryan and Gill on 01394 282572 who will be happy to help you.
Merry Christmas everyone. Drumalee Teddy has been given the best Christmas present ever, he is going to his forever home on the 27th.He is happy to wait until then because he is looking forward to tucking into his Christmas dinner and some of the lovely treats that have been donated.
Have a good day everyone.
From all at Dillymore Kennels and Greyhound Trust Suffolk
Thank you to all who have supported us throughout the year Whether that is through Virgin Money Giving, Just Giving, donations in memory of loved ones, money in lieu of wedding or birthday presents, and donations just because you thought of us. Thanks also to those who have supported us in other ways by making things for us to sell, donating goodies for the dogs at Christmas and last but by no means least those who have taken one of our hounds to their hearts and their home. As many of you may know we have been self funding since March, this means we have been paying all kennel and Vet bills, buying all worm and flea treatments, collars, leads, muzzles and grooming / first aid equipment from our branch funds. So in whatever way you have managed to help us this year Thank you, as always we are truly grateful.
