Thank you Jo and Beth

Some of the eagle eyed among you will have noticed that we have a beautiful new logo. We loved our old logo, but thought it was time for a change. Luckily our friend Jo Brodie, a talented artist, volunteered to design a new logo for us. We are thrilled with the results and hope that you are too.

We’ve also been extremely lucky to secure the support of web designer Beth Alexander too. Not only did Beth help to set up our website, she has remained on hand to assist with some of the technical stuff that we sometimes struggle with.

So a huge thank you to Jo and Beth!  P.S. If you have a talent that you think would be helpful to G.R.A.C.E, and you are willing to donate some of your time, we would love to hear from you.

Ozzie is loving life!

Can everyone remember our Ozzie? All round lovely lad and our resident telly addict, he was with us for quite some time and we were starting to think he’d be a permanent fixture. Well here he is as happy as can be living the good life in his new trial home.

Way to go Ozzie. This is what makes all our hard work so worthwhile. P.S. We also love the fact that he is quite the nosey neighbour – he’s probably trying to see if next door has a big TV!

Boats, trains, cars and planes!

We are always amazed at how loving greyhounds are; how well they adapt to new experiences and just how quickly they get used to the finer things in life!

This week new girl Tiffany experienced her first ever boat trip. A bit unsure at first, but she loved it.

Duke - ready for take off to Jersey

And let’s not forget Duke jetting off on a private plane recently to his new life in Jersey!

S.O.S – Funds Urgently Needed

Calling on the support of our amazing supporters. Our charity is run entirely by volunteers. Every penny raised goes to the welfare of the dogs in our care. Recent veterinary bills have seriously depleted our funds. Please can you share this post and image with your friends and family. If you are able to donate just £1 each, it would be a huge help! Payment methods are featured on the ‘how you can help’ section of this website. Thank you.

Lily and Duke are flying high!

We’re lucky to have some fantastic friends in the Channel Islands, who have helped to find forever homes for some of our G.R.A.C.E dogs. The latest lucky duo to be make the move to Jersey and Guernsey are Lily and Duke.

We are so grateful to Gail Hickmott and Alison Le Feuvre, who look after Jersey Whippets, for making this possible. Plus a big thank you to Chris the pilot, who touched down in the UK to transport Lily and Duke to their fabulous new life. Duke was particularly taken by the flight and looks like he was born to always travel via private plane!

Thank you Becky!

As a small charity, run entirely by volunteers, we rely on the kindness and compassion of dog lovers to help us in our cause. In particular, we are always grateful to volunteer foster families who temporarily take a dog into their home and love them as they would their own. It helps the dogs in our care move onto their permanent forever homes when they are ready.

Dogs fostered by Becky

We would therefore like to say a huge thank you to Becky and her family. In the last 8 months Becky has fostered all of the above dogs on behalf of G.R.A.C.E.

As a foster carer for G.R.A.C.E, we cover the costs of dog food, treats, bedding and veterinary bills etc. All you need to provide is the love and cuddles! If you are interested in finding out more about becoming a G.R.A.C.E foster carer, we would love to hear from you.

‘Greyt’ news for Flint!

We’re delighted to let you know that 3 year old handsome boy Flint has officially been adopted and is now in his forever home.

Flint

He is very loving and affectionate and loves his toys. ‘Greyt’ news Flint, you deserve all the happiness in the world. 

Meet Isla

When dogs come to us, they live with volunteer foster families so we can get to know their individual personalities. This also means we can match them with their ideal forever family when they are ready to be rehomed. We’re delighted to bring you an update on Isla who is currently being fostered by Becky, one of our lovely volunteers.

Isla2

Isla is a gorgeous 2 year old girl who is looking for a home of her own. She is in foster with small dogs and is a super friendly girl.

Isla1

She can be a bit nervous at times but takes confidence from other dogs. She loves to play so would be better suited to a home with another dog. She is great on the lead, good in the car and in the house.

Isla3

She is still young so learns quickly. If you think you could offer Isla, or any of our other dogs, a home, we would love to hear from you.

Don’t forget our meet and greet this Sunday!

Don’t forget to pop along to our ‘Meet & Greet’ this Sunday 24th September at Stewart Park, Middlesbrough from 9am to 2pm (weather permitting).

Permanent foster needed for these two beauties

It’s under extremely sad and difficult circumstances that we have been asked to take these two older sweethearts under our wing.

Bill and Sky

The rough coated lurcher girl is Sky and she is 7 years old. The fawn boy is Bill and he is 12 years old. Both dogs are good with kids and other dogs.

Bill sadly has arthritis.  Both need permanent foster and G.R.A.C.E will provide veterinary costs and food etc.  All we need is a special someone to offer them a home and love them.

Bill and Sky are in the North East and are very loved and cared for.

Leaving their family home will be traumatic enough for them, so we are looking to re-home Bill and Sky together as they are already so well bonded.
