WELCOME TO THE
With the easing of covid restrictions we can now welcome homing applications again and get cracking with organising forever homes for our greyhounds!
We will still be operating in a controlled and careful way.
We have to thank everyone who has been so patient through this difficult time; and, if you are considering homing a greyhound, do now please feel free to contact Kath on 07723 027995 to talk about the current process.
And, of course, huge thanks to everyone who has supported GTWY over the last year, enabling us to be in great shape to begin inching out of lockdown.
So - the first steps on the road … photographer Andy has had his first access to the kennels and you can now go to the ‘Our Greyhounds’ page to see the first bunch who are ready and waiting for their future homes…..
LOOK AT HOMING FROM A GREYHOUND
POINT OF VIEW
We followed CLYDE'S real-life, real-time story from his homing in September 2019 up to his first anniversary, as he adapted from working life to retirement as a pet.
TAKE A LOOK AT SOME HOMED HOUNDS
Because of Covid restrictions photos have been in rather short supply so far this year ... but you can take a look at just some of the greyhounds to have found their forever homes in the Homed Hounds 2021 Album
AND - IN CASE YOU MISSED IT ....
HERE ARE A FEW SNIPPETS OF WHAT PAUL HUDSON HAD TO SAY ON LOOK NORTH ABOUT HIS GTWY GREYHOUND DAVE
WE USUALLY HAVE LOTS OF GREAT OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOU TO MEET SOME GREYHOUNDS,
CURRENT OWNERS &
WE HAVE, OF COURSE, HAD TO CANCEL ALL SOCIAL AND FUNDRAISING EVENTS FOR THE TIME BEING.
WE WILL BE BACK 'IN ACTION' WITH EVENTS JUST AS SOON AS IT IS APPROPRIATE!
Our West Yorkshire branch of the Greyhound Trust national
charity has homed many hundreds of these wonderful dogs.
We have a wealth of experience behind us; so whether you are an 'old hand' or a first-time dog owner in need of support, we will always be just a phone call away.
We usually have around 20 greyhounds waiting for homes - and as one lucky one leaves there will be another waiting to take the place ...
We usually have around 20 greyhounds waiting for their new life as pets.
All of our greyhounds ready for homing are neutered, microchipped and up to date with their inoculations and parasite treatments; and all are given a leather collar & lead and a muzzle when they leave for their new homes.
A donation of £190 is requested when you home one of our greyhounds
