Pets At Home are great supporters of the Greyhound Trust and West Yorkshire branch has a great relationship with the store at Crown Point.  We regularly have a promotion and fundraising stall there, 
with volunteers on hand to talk about homing greyhounds and some 4 legged 'helpers', all set to show that 'greyhounds make great pets'. 
​So we will set dates when we can and you can come and have a chat with us!

KIRKSTALL ABBEY SUNDAY MARKET

MEET AND GREET

We normally have a regular stall at the Outdoor Market held inside the lovely ruins of Kirkstall Abbey -  a great place to meet up with friends old and new!


For our existing group of greyhound homers, it is a fine time for socialising – the GTWY stall makes a grand meet-up point.


And it’s a terrific opportunity for anyone thinking of homing a greyhound to come along and enjoy some greyhound company; and to chat to some friendly greyhound owners.
