February Walk

Just a reminder that our February walk takes place this Sunday in Mistley.

New meeting point and parking arrangements Mistley Cricket Club, New Road Mistley, Manningtree CO11 1ER. We are grateful to the Cricket club for the use of their parking facilities and we would appreciate a £1 donation to them. Please see walk leaders Mikey and Sharon.

Toilet facilities will be available at Mistley Rugby Club (Furze Hill) or the Tea rooms in Mistley High Street.
There will be both a long and short walk but due to the soggy fields there will be slightly different routes being led.

Joe Gunner and Dodger

Good luck to Joe (Sennen Cove), Gunner (Gunboat Wichita) and Dodger (Brown Eyed Boy). They have all gone home within the last few days. We wish them well as they embark on this next exciting chapter in their little lives. Much love sweethearts be happy xx

Paddy (Galtee Lad)

Great news for Paddy (Galtee Lad)! He went off to his forever home today. Everyone at kennels adores Paddy and we all wish him well as he embarks on the next chapter in his life.

Be happy sweetheart, you will be much missed xx

Highwoods Country Park Walk

Many thanks to Joe and Ann for leading our January walk in Highwoods Country Park yesterday. Approximately 30 dogs came along but unfortunately we didn’t have an official photographer on the walk. If you took any photos you would be happy to share please email them to suffolk@greyhoundtrust.org.uk and we will make an album.

We knew this handsome pair Saving Grace and Saving Sonic would draw your attention to our appeal for photos!

Good Luck Joey

Good luck to self appointed kennel spokesman Joey (Mahogany Teidi). He went to his forever home this weekend.
The quiet lad who arrived at kennels took a little time to come out of his shell but his cheeky little personality soon came through and he took on the responsibility of kennel look out letting his kennel mates know if there were visitors n the yard.
We are so proud of the progress Joey has made and our thanks go to all at Dillymore kennels and his Volunteer who have given him the time and love he needed to settle in.
We all wish Joey every happiness in his new home. Well done Sweetheart.


A Good Weekend for Homing

Great news for Coolboy Rusty. He has gone home today. Rusty will be in good company as his wider family also have Greyhounds . So pleased for Rusty because he was sadly returned from his last home through circumstances beyond the control of his first family.
In other news Paddy (Galtee Lad) was reserved and will be going home once he has had his man op.
