Corona Virus

We are in uncharted waters with the Corona Virus epidemic and the picture changes daily. We had a directive yesterday from the Headquarters of the Greyhound Trust that all fundraising/promptional events should be cancelled. The safety of our volunteers is paramount. Dependant on how things progress over the following weeks we can hopefully re-arrange some of the events later in the year.

Our dogs are safe in kennels but still looking for their forever homes. If you are interested in any of the dogs please contact us. Any requests will be looked at but obviously the safety of our volunteers comes first and wll be in line with govenrment advice and guidelines from the Greyhound Trust.

This will be a blow to our fundraising activities during the busiest part or the year. If you would like to make a donation or set up a montly payment to support the Greyhounds please contact us.

Aborve all Stay Safe
