We are once again having to ask you to help us find a home for one of our little treasures.
Slammer (Oh alabamaslama) has been at kennels from a tiny puppy and throughout his racing career. He is the friendliest and most loving boy you could wish to meet.
However since retirement Slammer has recently been diagnosed with cataracts.
He has been to a specialist Vet who says they would not recommend any treatment at the moment and it is possible he may not in the future but of course the future is by no means certain and some may find his medical condition an issue when considering adopting a Greyhound.
Full details of his condition and the Veterinary advice given will be shared with anyone who adopts him.
Slammer really is a sweetheart who has in the past shared his kennel with his brother Storm (Oh Darknstormy) who is also subject to an appeal but for different reasons.
We know it’s a bit early to mention Christmas what with us not even got as far as Halloween but we need a bit of help.
We have booked a stall at the Felixstowe Craft fair and light up event in November.
If there are any Crafter’s out there who may be able to donate some items for us to sell we would be very grateful.
If you are able to help please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will pass on your details to our organising Volunteer who will collect the items from kennels.
Can you help please?
UPDATE. Fire has now been offered a home. Thank you for reading her post.
Fire (racing name Spring of Fire) is looking for a home or kennel space.
Born 16th February 2020 Fire was homed directly from a trainer and so unfortunately doesn’t come under the umbrella of any Greyhound Trust Branch and so cannot be taken into our care.
Sadly Fire needs a home or kennel space as soon as possible due to family circumstances.
Her current owner says this about her.
Fire has her vaccination card but she has not been spayed.
We think she would be suited to a home with children over 5 years old who are perhaps used to dogs. Her current owner says she is good with children.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ON FIRE PLEASE CONTACT HER OWNER KELLY DIRECTLY ON 07368292905
Could you become a Foster Family?
With kennel space being limited and our system quota being restricted to 10 dogs at any given time we are seeking experienced Greyhound owners to join our fostering team to offer foster homes for some of our dogs, in particular those that have been returned.
Cat free homes a must. Quiet homes with someone around most of the day would be ideal. In most cases with careful introductions our dogs would live with a resident Greyhound or medium to large breed.
Out of pocket expenses including food and mileage for kennel visits and any Veterinary costs (preferably and unless in a dire emergency with our Vet) will be covered.
With sometimes once weekly visits to kennels necessary for the dogs to be introduced to prospective adopters you may want to consider your proximity to the kennels. Perhaps within a 10 mile radius would be acceptable to you?
If you think you may be able to help please email us at email@example.com with your contact details.
Dear old Ruso was sadly returned when his owner became too ill to care for him. He was fostered by our Volunteer Michelle and her family until we could find him a new family.
Unfortunately after 2 years in a home Cain is being returned. He is currently in foster care where he has been the perfect house guest, he adores his walks and walks nicely on his lead. He loves his food so you may want to keep him out of the kitchen whilst preparing dinner!
Cain has been good with all the other dogs he has met. He hasn’t as yet climbed onto the sofa but that’s a good thing because he doesn’t appear to like being disturbed when he is resting. His foster carers have two beds for him and he hasn’t yet shown any sign of aggression .
Cain was always the happiest of souls when he was at kennels and his tail didn’t stop wagging. However we do feel an adult only home would be best for Cain.
Blue (Gymstar Elusive) is unfortunately looking for a new home.
Despite the absolute best efforts of Blue’s family he is finding their busy home and lifestyle too stressful. They are acting in his best interests by making the heartbreaking decision to return him.
We understand Blue walks nicely on his lead and is good with other dogs he loves to do zoomies and has had a Labradoodle stay in his home for a week. He seemed more confident with the other dog for company so he may well benefit from a home with another dog.
Blue comes with a crate, two beds and a fabulous array of coats!
If you think you could offer Blue a home please contact Sue on 01206 851360 for more information.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kennels are in need of some duvets. If you have any spare they would be most grateful. Kennels are manned 24/7 but the best time to drop them off is any day between 10am and 12 noon or 2pm and 4pm. or perhaps you could bring them along to one of our walks if that is more convenient for you.
Thank you so much.
Our Kings Lynn branch are seeking a home for a dear little girl called Lacey.
Lacey has been in a home but has been returned because she suffers from separation anxiety. She is 6 years old, very friendly, walks well on her lead and despite her separation anxiety she is clean in the house.
Ideally Lacey would benefit from a home with another Greyhound or with a family who have the time and the willingness to work with Lacey to help her overcome her fears.
If you would like to know more about Lacey or would like to meet her please contact Debbie on 07944578125 or email email@example.com
