We always need volunteers and there are so many ways you can help to fit around your life.
Volunteer at our kennels
We need people to walk the dogs and clean the kennels. You can also just come and spend time with the dogs, play with them and give them affection. This all helps with their socialisation and prepares them them for life in their new homes. We also need people who can transport dogs to the vets or to their foster homes. It’s a really lovely and fulfilling thing to do with your spare time.
We attend many fundraising events for which you can volunteer. Sometimes we do bag packs at supermarkets or we attend dog shows or other public events. We will post these events on our events page so you can get in touch if there are events you think you can attend.
Become a home checker
We re-home greyhounds all over the UK so we need home checkers in as many parts of the country as possible. You would be given all the information you need to be a successful home checker. You would need to assess if the family, home and garden are suitable for one of our hounds.
Foster one of our dogs
Could you provide a loving environment to prepare a hound for life in their forever home? You can foster even if you work full time. Greyhounds only need a 20 minute walk twice a day. We also need fosterers for Podencos, Galgos and the occasional Staffie (fat head). We also have hounds which are suitable to be in foster with cats. All veterinary treatment and food is provided as well as ongoing support.
Support our campaign work
You can ask to join our facebook page so you can share posts to help educate the wider public about the plight of racing greyhounds. You can also join us in sending emails to various bodies to demand a change in the law to protect greyhounds. You could join us at our peaceful demonstrations. There are regular demos at Perry Barr racing track, everyone in the group is very friendly and welcoming to new faces.
Obviously we’re biased but Greyhounds truly are special dogs unlike any other breed. Many of us become greyhound collectors! One is sometimes never enough.. They are elegant, lazy, loving and will steal your heart.
If you think you could help please ring 07773943242 or 07572296780 for more information. Please leave a text message rather than a voicemail and Kerry will get back to you. We look forward to hearing from you.
