How the scheme works...
We welcome sponsors of all ages and for £25 per year you will receive a personalised letter from your chosen dog, a laminated photo of them, a pin badge and certificate of sponsorship, a Speedy book (story about a fictional greyhound called Speedy) plus a SURPRISE, when you're least expecting it!! We invite you on a VIP visit to the sanctuary to meet your dog and we have 2 Open Days when you can come and see them.
Listed below are greyhounds available for sponsoring and we provide you with a little detail on each of them. However if you'd rather meet them first before making your choice, please contact us.
Sponsoring one of these dogs will in turn help to keep others less fortunate than themselves. Kennelling costs, food and veterinary bills all need to be covered and any funds received will be sent direct to our Retired Greyhound Trust Head Office to help with these costs.
Silks joined us in February 2008 at just under two years old. A delightful cat friendly puppy really. Loves to be cuddled and played with. We don't have any background on her other than she probably never raced. We will try and get more information but if we turn nothing up she will have to be your sponsor dog without a story.
Pola what can we say, a bundle of mischief, born in August 2005 this little black girl just wants to play. She is so friendly and loves to give nibbles and kisses. Pola is also one of our blood donors.
Medium sized black dog born August 2005. Quite stiff due to his racing career loves nothing more that to be cuddled. Star is also one of our blood donors.
Nog joined our gang in November 2010 aged just 3. He is probably the most timid addition to date but we hope that we will be able to make him a braver boy without having to take him to see the Wizard of Oz! He is a very pale fawn lad with so much fear in his little face but if you do chose him you will only be able to see him from a distance until he is brave enough to maybe come and have a stroke.
Little Fern joined the Sanctuary in February 2011 having spent the last 5 years in a home in Alderney. Her owner decided she was 'surplus to requirements' at the age of 9 and she came to us suffering from dreadful osteo arthritis in her front leg. A happier more loving little pooch you couldn't wish for which proves my theory 'the more people I meet the more I love my dogs'!!!!!! Fern will be 10 in 2012
After two false starts with homes, the first being through no fault of the owners, just not the cat friendly boy we had been led to believe, we decided Jack would stay with us at the Sanctuary. Jack was born in September 2007 and is very small for a boy but perfectly formed. Loves affection and extremely nosey.
Orange Dog our male model born in 2010. Loves to be cuddled and very popular with everyone. Blood donor and regular PAT dog just a starMr. T our Battersey Boy came to us three years ago having spent nearly a year there. He was born in 2010 and is a lovely affectionate little man but has a problem with the outside world
Rescued from Battersey Dogs Home in 2015 he was 7 in 2017. Lovely friendly dog but a little wary of the outdoor life. He will sometimes dig his heels in and go no further which is a bit of a problem. Lovely white and brindle boy.
Our big black beautiful baby, born 2014. Enjoys a fuss and is just getting used to doing fetes but would rather be at home on his sofa.
Saved from a Slaughter House in China where he would have been part of the meat marketing trade Yang is a beautiful blue boy. We rescued him in January 2017 and we think he is about 2 or 3 years old. He was flown from Beijjin to Paris then Paris to Jersey. Boisterous boy and does jump up but equally loves a love. He has issues with a start like he had it is not surprising. He is very strong and not good with other dogs.
Another of our meat trade dogs rescued from the Slaughter house in China and brought over to us in January 2017. He is a delight and a complete and utter nutter once he gets going. How these dogs trust after their dreadful lives I shall never know but once again this boy just loves to be loved. We think he was 2 or 3 when he arrived in 2017.
