SAD and SAK

As a registered charity we always need more money to support the work we do. We welcome people organizing their own fun events to raise donations and will offer support to do this.

Sponsor a Dog (SAD)  Scheme

Greyhound Rescue Wales has found homes for hundreds of greyhounds and lurchers. Unfortunately there are also some that cannot be re-homed because of their awful past experiences and these become “long-term residents” who are cared for permanently by foster carers.

We currently have a number of dogs in need of extra care and attention and who would love to have YOU as a sponsor.

Pearl

Pearl

 Is so nervous she will only ever trust her foster carer of three years whom she can never leave
Oscar .

Eight year old Oscar was rehomed twice but returned with body handling, resource guarding and dominating issues. He also has some arthritic issues which make him difficult to rehome. He did not thrive well in kennels so went to long term foster where he remains.

Ezra .

Came to us as a nine year old dog in poor condition with really bad teeth. He ended up with a major dental and most teeth removed before he ent to live with a sweet little old lady who unfortunately  developed dementia. This meant Ezra came back to us and then tried two foster homes that didn’t work out. He is now in the ideal foster home.

Carys .

A four year old sweet little black girl came off the track with a broken hock. She was never even registered so had no racing name. Her broken hock was plated at the vets before going into foster care.  The hock repair has left Carys mechanically lame and she is having ongoing problems with the plate which may have to be removed. Carys was happy in the foster carers packof other dogs and so it was felt best to leave Carys where she was as a long term foster.

 Rita.

Came from another rescue with a major infection in her leg which needed immediate and extensive treatment. This nine year old girl has had some major urine infections which lead to surgery. Subsequently Rita has had lots of teeth removed . Rita is seriously intolerant of some other dogs but as she has managed well in her foster home it was decided to leave her there. She has since  gone on to do ‘Pets As Therapy’ work in Caswell Clinic Bridgend.

Murphy.

This seven year old ex racer was a long term resident at another rescue before coming to us .  He came with severe fresh body scarring from his time at the previous rescue . Murphy was eventually rehomed  but came back after an incident with a neighbours small dog that wandered in to his secure garden. Murphy has some private space issues and is very much relies on a regimented to routine . Because of his history Murphy would be difficult to rehome and is now in long term fostering.

Sponsor a Kennel (SAK) Scheme

At Greyhound Rescue Wales we are constantly approached to take in and, in many cases, save a grey-hounds and lurchers lives. There is a never ending flow of dogs needing homes once the racing industry or owners have finished with them. So consequently we have many dogs on our waiting list at any given time.

The gift you give of sponsoring a kennel will save the lives of many dogs and help look after them until they can be successfully re-homed. Every new ken-nel we provide will allow us to save approximately 10 dogs a year.

Our Kennel Sponsorship works in the following way: we have several kennels which we use for sponsorship. As a dog gets re-homed another homeless hound takes its place in the kennel. You are not just sponsoring one dog, who could be homed quite quickly, but you will be sponsoring a kennel in which many dogs should come and go throughout the year!

For the kennel you would like to sponsor for the year you will receive updates on all the dogs that stay in your kennel throughout the year

For 60 pence per week you can help unwanted and abused greyhounds get the love and care that they so desperately need through our SAD and SAK Schemes
