Spotlight on Sam

After an anxious start, Sam (aged 5) quickly settled into life as a pet and is being looked after by one of our fantastic GRACE foster volunteers. We now feel that it’s time for Sam to find a forever home that he can call his own.

Sam enjoys company, but will settle and sleep when left alone. He gets on well with other dogs when he has been properly introduced. He needs an adult only home – ideally with greyhound experience – and he could live with a female greyhound.

Sam’s recall is good in a securely fenced area and he walks well on his lead. Sam is a lovely boy and will be a great companion.

Thank you Jane

Can everyone remember our lovely Grace? Grace is a long-term foster dog who will remain in our care for the rest of her life.

Her lovely foster mum Jane has been busy and very creative making face masks. Jane has obviously made lots and has donated £170 to us. A massive thank you to Jane and to those who bought the masks.

Lacey update

Following our news post on 12th June about Lacey, the greyhound girl with a badly broken leg, we’re delighted to let you know that she is recovering well.

She still needs to rest and be in a crate for now, but generally is feeling much better. Lacey would like to thank everyone who contributed to her surgery and saved her leg. Her foster Mum Julie sent these lovely photos of Lacey.

Happy 1st Birthday Phoebe!

Happy 1st birthday to gorgeous GRACE girl Phoebe.

A huge thanks to Hayley for fostering Phoebe for us. And the best birthday present of all…….Phoebe is now in her new home with her own Mum and Dad!

Auction item for footy fans

GRACE volunteer Doreen has been given this football shirt from Ross Turnbull, ex-Boro and ex-Chelsea goalkeeper. It is a team-signed shirt from Ross’ last year at Chelsea. It is signed by a lot of top class players, including Eden Hazard, Juan Mata, John Terry, Frank Lampard, Ashley Cole, Fernando Torres, John Obi Mikel and more.

Signed football shirt for auction

Doreen has set up an auction for the shirt, which has been posted on a number of relevant sites, as well as our main GRACE and fundraising pages on Facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/RescueAGreyhound/ https://www.facebook.com/GRACE-Fundraising-Page-366323137129848/

As of 26 June, the highest bid stands at £210. All proceeds are for GRACE. Please tell your football friends. The auction will end Friday 3rd July at 6pm.

Just….wow!

You might have read that we urgently needed to help poor GRACE foster girl Lacey, who broke her leg in two places and needed surgery. The vet bill stood at £5,781.82

Step forward GRACE volunteer Doreen, who went into fundraising overdrive by organising number draws and our very first GRACE online auction, where people bid on handcrafted and donated items. Some lovely children even made pictures to sell to their family.

The amazing news is that thanks to Doreen’s campaign and donations, we generated enough funds for Lacey’s vet bill. We are also halfway covering the cost of her check-up, which we believe is going to be about £500.

So a ‘greyt’ big thank you to Doreen, who is one in a million!  We would also like to thank Doreen’s husband John, plus their dogs Max and Sky who lent a paw. And last but not least, thank you to Jackie, all our other GRACE volunteers and everyone who has supported us with their kindness and generosity. We really couldn’t do what we do without all of you.

Max lends Doreen a helping paw!
Thank you to Jackie and all our other GRACE volunteers too.
