GTWY is in great shape to meet the coming year.
But a difficult decision had to be made in view of the recently increased Covid restrictions.
The previous minimal contact with the kennels has been temporarily halted.
So, just for now, 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!
THINKING OF HOMING A GREYHOUND?
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 at the moment.
We will still look forward to hearing from you and, when the time is right, we will be welcoming homing applications again!
SO YOU CAN SEE IT WILL BE WORTH WAITING FOR .....
AS SOON AS WE CAN ...
... we will get back to all our usual routines
And our photographer, Andy, will be out there, capturing great images of the greyhounds waiting for homes
Watch this space .....
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 and 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!
Prince is 10 years old and had never had a home. But here he is ...& clearly loving it!
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
