Wow! We were blessed with such a beautiful day for our annual Boxing Day walk in Felixstowe today. Thank you to all that came along to support us. Special thanks to Brian and Gill for leading the walk, Craig, Julie and family for allowing us to use their chalet and for the wonderful job they made of serving the refreshments and to everybody that made cakes, mince pies and sausage rolls.
We had another record turn out with 179 sight hounds and 19 of their friends of a different breed.We hope to have some photos to share with you shortly, please see the appeal above.
Thank you to Greyhound Walks for inviting us to join them on their walk through Highwoods Country Park today. It was a nice turn out given the appalling weather. We took our special boy Will along. Will is very shy and not quite ready to go to a forever home just yet but he was a brave little soldier today given that this is only his third trip out of kennels. Although quite hand shy still he was keen to make friends with several of the other dogs. He walked beautifully on his lead. We are very hopeful that there is a special home out there for this lovely lad.
Rio also came along and was given the good news that he will be going to live with his forever family pending a successful home check and after he recovers from his ‘man op’
Lucy thought brave Will made a lovely chin rest!
Rio is walked by his prospective new family. He behaved brilliantly.
What a glorious day it was for our walks in Hadleigh today. Great turnout with 50 greyhounds and 6 of their friends. Kennel dogs Paddy and Claire came along and enjoyed themselves. Many thanks to Angie and Anne for leading the walks and to the Landlady of The George for making us welcome in the pub garden afterwards. See lots more photos on our Facebook page.
Huge thanks to Sharon and Mike for leading a gorgeously sunny September walk with 43 dogs (40 greyhounds we think!). Thanks to all who came along – it was especially lovely to see so many of our recently homed greyhounds enjoying their retirement. Kennel dog Claire had a lovely day out and behaved very well too.

What a fantastic afternoon! It was lovely to see 63 greyhound and five other breeds for a fantastic walk at Stutton. Kennel dogs Joker and Jenny had a marvellous afternoon out – and Jenny has been reserved!
Many thanks to organiser Avril and those who made tea and coffee. Many thanks to Carol and Steve for the lovely cakes too. All the greyhounds say thank you to Avril for their delicious sandwiches!
Thanks to all who came along and enjoyed a a marvellous afternoon.
Thank you to everybody who came along and supported our walk at Woodbridge yesterday. What a fantastic turn out! 76 greyhounds / lurchers and five of their friends.

Today 55 greyhounds and two other breeds joined us for a walk at Mistley. Most dogs did the long route but there was a shorter walk for the ‘oldies’ (dogs not people). Once again we were made very welcome at the Mistley Park rescue centre and cafe.
