WELCOME TO THE
A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU
AND HOW'S THIS FOR A PIECE OF
GREAT BIT OF NEWS FOR THE NEW YEAR ...
PRINCE GOT A HOME!
YOU MAY HAVE SEEN OUR PROMOTION FOR PRINCE
who really did need a place to call his own as soon as possible.
Well the great news is that Prince moved into his new home just before Christmas.
As you can see from the photo above, he is settling in well, helped by an experienced family and a new, small canine companion.
Huge thanks are due to everyone who liked, shared and responded to his situation - it was overwhelming and heartwarming to see so much interest, care and positive thinking ... and it did the job!
Head to the OUR GREYHOUNDS PAGE to learn more ......
TAKE A LOOK AT THESE FANTASTIC PHOTOS!
Fantastic photos of GTWY greyhound Hettie and GTWY volunteer Andy. It has been several years now since they chose each other; and recently they have been models for photographer, Lorraine Spittle LRPS, for a project she is submitting to the Royal Photographic Society on the relationship between dogs and their owners.
Thank you Lorraine for allowing us to publish them - and
WOW- they certainly show the love and joy that a greyhound can bring to your life.
GREAT NEWS FOR ANNIE!
ANNIE HAS A HOME!
Massive thanks are due to all of those people who saw, shared and responded to Annie's story - and we want to let everyone know about the happy ending.
Here she is settling into her new home ...
It’s now 2021 and we are still facing significant challenges …
GTWY is in great shape to meet the coming year - but a difficult decision had to be made at the end of December.
In view of the increased Covid restrictions from the New Year and the fact that the kennels would be in a ‘very high alert’ area, it was decided that there would be NO HOMINGS THROUGH JANUARY.
This has, of course, been cemented by the new lockdown restrictions announced on 4th January.
The previous minimal contact with the kennels has been temporarily halted.
We have a kennel full of greyhounds, continuing to get the best possible care; but we must ‘do our bit’ in helping to keep everyone as safe and well as possible. So for the next few weeks you will not see photos nor information on here about greyhounds needing homes. We will update just as soon as we can get back into action!
For people who have already completed the homing application process with Kath, she asks you to please give her a call so that she can give you a personal update and have a review, with a view to organising homing as soon as circumstances allow and the right greyhound for you is available.
For those thinking about homing one of our greyhounds - do please keep thinking that! And look towards getting in touch once the present, significant restrictions are eased.
IT WILL BE WORTH THE WAIT!
AND SO THAT YOU CAN SEE IT WILL BE WORTH WAITING FOR - CHECK OUT JUST SOME OF THE LOVELY GREYHOUNDS HOMED IN 2020 .....
