Easter Sunday walk at Hollesley

Thanks to Kevin Lambert for leading today’s walk at Hollesley, to the Shepherd and Dog for their hospitality, and to the rain for staying away! We were joined by kennel dogs Flash, Rhythm, Princess, Maxie, Finley and Diego – they all behaved impeccably, took everything in their stride and made some new friends. We hope they won’t be waiting too long for their forever homes …

Hollesley Walk

31 greyhounds joined us for a gloriously sunny walk around Hollesley. Among them was kennel boy Max, who behaved admirably on his first trip out of kennels with us. He walked very well on his lead, didn’t react to two shouty labradors or any of the other dogs he met and loved the attention and cuddles. He might also have learned about crisps …
Thank you to Kevin for leading the walk and to everybody who came along for their company.

Urgent appeal for Ruby and Rosie

A sad and urgent appeal.

Due to the most tragic of circumstances, their owner is gravely ill, Ruby 11 and Rosie 10 are looking for a home together to spend their twilight years.

We have arranged a lovely foster home for them from 5th January but if we could find a permanent home for them by then that would be fantastic and much less upsetting for them to have to cope with two changes.

Both girls are good indoors, easy to walk and are very affectionate.

Their vaccinations are up to date and they have been well cared for since being adopted from our branch several years ago.

Please work your magic as you have done, so many times before and share their appeal far and wide.

If you think you could offer Ruby and Rosie a home please contact Sue on 01206 851360 or email suffolk@greyhoundtrust.org.uk.

Greyhound Trust Suffolk closure

It’s difficult to find the words to express how sorry we are to announce that Greyhound Trust Suffolk has closed with immediate effect. We offer our heartfelt thanks for all your support – all of you who have homed greyhounds, volunteered their time, donated funds, shared their stories and attended walks and events. Since becoming a separate branch of the Greyhound Trust in 2009 (originally as Greyhound Homer Suffolk) you have helped find loving homes for well over a thousand greyhounds – thank you.

Our walks arranged until the end of the year will go ahead as planned – details will remain active on the website and we will continue to communicate through our facebook page. This website will be available until January 2023.

For those who have homed greyhounds from the branch and need support, your point of contact is now the Greyhound Trust Head National Support Centre, contact details at www.greyhoundtrust.org.uk/contact-us

Running a marathon!

Oliver Page is running the Brighton Marathon to raise money for Greyhound Trust Suffolk. Have a look at his fundraising page and please do consider donating to support him on his way. You can also read about his inspiration for the run, Sonny at the link.

Olly, you saw something special in Sonny despite his shyness. Thank you so much for giving him the wonderful life he so truly deserved – from all at Greyhound Trust Suffolk.

Wisp goes home

Good news for little Wisp (old name was Kind Secret) this morning. She was reserved and went home before we had time to add her to the website! We will be seeing a lot of this pretty little girl as she is going to be one of our greyhound ambassadors at future events.

In other news, Bee, Jasper, Flo and Lee and Chilli and Ella visited for pedicures – lovely to see you and thanks for the donations.
