Rehoming News

It was the night before Christmas, and not a greyhound was stirring.
So cosy and warm, so sound asleep, legs in the air, it’s such a balancing feat.
Tomorrow would be special, with treats galore, but your four-legged friend wants to share with you more. Feeling happy and blessed to have found their own home. The delight of a new life previously unknown. Only true love, kindness and care; make greyhound eyes sparkle bright, so they even dance with delight. What a wonderful sight. The joy of your greyhound is beyond compare, for its pure LOVE you both do share.

To all who have rehomed, fostered, volunteered, supported, and followed us we wish you a very Happy Christmas, from Northumberland Greyhound Rescue

Dogs rehomed in 2023!

A huge thank you to our rehoming team and volunteers who support at the kennels for all their hard work  The time, effort and emotion makes them real stars.

Health Advice

Just a quick reminder, at this time of year, please be careful to keep chocolates, tree decorations, mince pie, fruit cake and nuts out of reach of pointed noses.  They can have very serious consequences.

Our wonderful Santa Paw’s Walk, was a huge success, enjoyed by all who braved the weather.
