The Greyhound Trust Head Office has asked us to share pet advice with you – it can be seen at http://www.greyhoundhomer.org.uk/covid-19-advice/
During the Coronavirus epidemic our branch will be funding the kennel costs for the Greyhound Trust dogs currently in our care from our branch funds, we will not be asking for financial help from central funds.
This will enable the Trust to better support branches who are not as fortunate as ours.
We are in a position to help in this way because of the wonderful support we have from you all. We are so grateful for all you do to help us.
At the moment we are unable to take more dogs in via the Trust because the priority for their funding must be with those already in Greyhound Trust care. However you will hopefully see new dogs appearing on our website from alternative sources who will be privately funded. Please keep looking at our website
Unfortunately due to the current situation regarding the Coronavirus we have cancelled the walk due to take place next Sunday (29th).
We will reinstate our monthly walks just as soon as we have permission from Head Office to do so.
Our annual quiz has been rescheduled for 10th October
The Great Global Greyhound Walk has be rescheduled for 11th October
The new year has got off to a fabulous start with 10 lucky hounds finding their forever homes in January so far. Unfortunately the flip side of such happy news is tinged with sadness as we learn of the passing of some of our previously homed hounds, all have been taken far too early. Sleep tight Kat, Paddy, Yankee, Romeo and Ty. You will be remembered with much love by us all, always. Our thoughts are very much with your loved ones.
Swifty and his owner would like to thank everyone who cared and shared his ‘missing’ post on our Facebook page, the person who found him, Dogs Lost, Eastgate Veterinary Practice, Cheryl Janssens and everybody who sent their best wishes. They are truly grateful.
Rupert had an afternoon out and about in Felixstowe this afternoon. He helped his Volunteers Avril and Bryan to time the new route for our Boxing Day walk. We started at Mannings as usual but walked through Martello Park to to Languard Fort and back. On the day we will be stopping at the fort for refreshments. The walk took 1 hour in total. Anybody wanting to do a shorter walk may want to park in the Martello Park South car park (Manor Road) and join us there for the walk to the fort. Rupert behaved well on his walk, we wouild love him to find his forever home because he is now one of our longest stayers.
New volunteer Barbara is going to be helping us with training some of our greyhounds that need a little extra help to find their forever homes. Today she worked with Bosch while Avril worked with Blink. Then we treated all the greyhounds for worms and fleas – they didn’t mind at all, they all got sausages. Thank you Barbara!
