Sponsor a greyhound or kennel
Sponsorship is a great way to help Hall Green Greyhound Trust if you can’t adopt a dog yourself.
Sponsorship also makes a great gift for an animal lover in your life.
Sponsorship starts from as little as £2 per month per hound (£24 per year) or £6 per month to sponsor a kennel (£72 a year).
You can, of course, give more if you wish.
Our sponsor dogs all have some sort of additional needs. These can be medical, behavioural, or both. Sponsorship enables these dogs to live in loving homes while receiving the help that they need. The Trust assists with vet bills, advice from behaviourists, and other treatments. Sponsorship will also help other dogs in our care who need some extra help.
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Acer was born in January 2005. He is in a ‘Forever Foster Home’ with one of our volunteers and receives lots of TLC. He has an arthritic spine which makes him hypersensitive to touch.
Ongoing treatment including visits to the chiropractor and dog training sessions seem to be helping him. Acer will needs support for the rest of his life.
Izzy became a ‘Forever Foster’ in July 2015, and at the age of 12 she is now in her ‘Forever Home.’ She is very loving and affectionate and gets great pleasure in rearranging the pillows on her fosterers bed to make herself comfortable.
She recently had 15 teeth removed but you’d never have known it, she was back to her usual bouncy self within a few hours.
Frazer will be 6 on the 12th December 2017 and is at many Hall Green events throughout the year where he will gladly lean on you for a fuss and a hug, he is one big soft love sponge of a Greyhound!
Frazer has a condition that has caused him to have a number of strokes but thanks to intensive rehabilitation and Physio treatment Frazer is currently enjoying his life (and hugs!).
Teddy was 7 in August 2017. Having a short racing career has not stopped his love of running, in fact he spends many a day with a cuddly toy in his mouth running around the garden, and if he can’t find a toy, his tail does quite nicely!
Teddy has a slight limp due to an injury so has monthly massage treatments as well as hydrotherapy to keep him fit and happy. He is also training as a ‘Pets as Therapy’ hound and already visits nursing homes, hospices and schools.
