LATEST NEWS

Welcome to the Greyhoundhomer RGT website! We hope you enjoy your visit and you find this a useful and informative website. Staff at Greyhoundhomer RGT have been homing retired racing Greyhounds since 2006 and have homed over 2000 dogs since starting up. Greyhounds make truly wonderful pets, and many who take on a Greyhound find the experience so fulfilling that they soon find themselves drawn to a second dog. Greyhounds are loyal, friendly, funny, affectionate, gentle, quiet, clean, loving, sensitive, trusting, good natured and generally very lazy! To the right of this text you can see a slideshow featuring some of the dogs we've homed this year.

RETIREMENT OF PAT PHILPOT FROM GREYHOUNDHOMER

 

It is with some sadness that I am writing to you to announce my retirement at the end of December. I chose to retire because I disagreed profoundly with the rebranding exercise from the "Retired Greyhound Trust" to "Greyhound Trust". I am however very proud to have lead a fantastic team of volunteers for so many years, and hope some will continue helping find retired racing Greyhounds new homes in the future.

 

At present the future of the branch itself is uncertain, but rest assured if it doesn't continue its work, any Greyhounds in our kennels will be rehomed via other Greyhound Trust branches.

 

Also retiring from the branch at the same time as myself is Mark Wilson, who has run the website and been part of our work for many years. So at the beginning of the New Year the website as it stands now will be taken down and replaced with a holding page.

 

In addition to the website being taken down our forum will be frozen and made read only, so it will not be possible to create new user accounts and it will also no longer be possible to make new posts to the forum. If you want to retain forum access you might like to make a bookmark / add it to your favourites from the link above.

 

I would like to say a big thank you to all staff and volunteers both past and present for their support and time over the years, we could not have been as successful as we have been without you all.

 

Kind Regards,

Pat Philpot
