Good luck T.J and Vera Alice

It’s been an exciting morning at kennels!

T.J had the surprise of his life when he was unexpectedly chosen and taken home.

Breeze who seems to have waited forever for his home was reserved and will be going home next week

Vera Alice went home with her forever family

Butch had a visit from his new family and will be going home shortly.

Last but by no means least Sky will be meeting her prospective family for a second time next Saturday.

Good luck T.J. and Vera Alice in your new homes and fingers crossed Sky’s second visit goes well.

Sleep Tight Lovely May

We have just heard the sad news that May has crossed the bridge.

May was the sweetest girl who along with her best friend Tony joined us on many of our walks.

Below is her family’s loving tribute to her.

‘May was our first greyhound and what a happy and mischievous little girl. She was so good from day one, a perfect greyhound ambassador. She loved her treats and her comforts. We miss her so much and also her brother Tony is lost without her’

May your happy little soul fly high and free sweetheart. You were always so happy to see everyone. xx

Rendham Walk Update

Rendham Walk update

In addition to The White Hart making us welcome the Juniper Cafe which is behind the Church is offering a hot drink, a slice of cake and a Bonio for £5

It is open until 1pm.

If you think you would like to indulge please email us at so that walk organiser Sharon can give them an idea of numbers.

Looking forward to seeing you all.


Just a quick reminder that we have our walk on Sunday in Rendham. All the details are in the What’s on section, including who to contact should you want to eat at The White Horse pub.

We hope to start at 10.45 in case it is hot.

Appeal for Duvets

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.

Little Mo’s Progress

We have had a lovely update from little Mo’s family.

You may remember Mo was featured in the Homer magazine because she had to overcome great shyness and was a nervous wreck when she arrived at Dillymore.

What a difference 12 months with a loving, caring and patient family has made to this little girl.

Her family now say she has come such a long way and although still wary in some situations she loves a fuss and her personality is really shining through, in fact she is a little rascal when the mood takes her but they love her all the more for it.

Understandably many would have overlooked little Mo, she didn’t exactly show well but thankfully her family saw beyond that shy, scared, exterior, in fact they wouldn’t even consider another dog and we will be forever grateful to them for that.

Below are some photos of Mo and her best friend Beano who has played no small part in building Mo’s confidence.

Blossom at Home

We have had news of Blossom who went to live with the lovely Buick.

They are getting on very well and Blossom has really settled in. She is good on her lead, great with other dogs and loves her food!

She is however an early riser! We will blame her kennel family for that, they start their days very early. We are sure Blossom will learn how to have a lay in very soon, we all know they love their sleep!

Sleep Tight Toby

It is with much sadness we have to report that Toby (Rethany Russo) has crossed the bridge.

His family have written a lovely tribute to him which we share with you below.

“Toby was a hound who always gave 100%. This was true in his racing life and in retirement. He was the forever teenager. As long as he was with his family everything we might want to do was a brilliant idea as far as he was concerned. Total enthusiasm.

Walks in all weathers, discussing his rights to after dinner treats, keeping us all safe from the terrors of the world A more loyal, loving and happy hound we may never meet again.

Thank you for introducing us to Toby so we could share many years of joy and ear rubs”

It is us who must thank Toby’s family for giving him such a happy and loving home.

Volunteer Sue has fond memories of Toby. She took him along to his home check with her and in his eagerness to explore he flew up the garden and landed in the pond!

Sleep well sweetheart, enjoy lots of treats and ear rubs on your side of the bridge and stay away from the water!!! xxx

Dovercourt Walk

Approx. 30 hounds and their hardy owners braved the heavy showers for our May walk in Dovercourt yesterday.

We had brief interludes of sunshine!

Kennel dogs and siblings Blossom and Butch joined us and behaved extremely well.

Thank you very much to The Lighthouse Cafe for making us welcome and to the two lovely ladies we met in there who made such a fuss of Blossom and Butch and generously gave a donation.

Rugby Club Fete

Well done and thank you to our hardy Volunteers who braved the cold on Saturday afternoon to promote our Greyhounds at the Ipswich Valley Rugby Club fete.
