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.
We have a selection of cards and some knitted snoods for sale. Please contact our Volunteers Bryan and Gill for prices (postage is included in the price) pack sizes, number of designs in each pack and payment details Bryan and Gill can be reached on 01394 282572. Thank you. There are more images on our Facebook Page.
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.
