You will often see our current workshop dog on instagram or facebook. They will always be a greyhound with a smiling face and a wagging tail.
How did it all start?
So while our hearts were broken we took some time, we healed and in 2017 decided to open our home and hearts again this time we decided we would help more than just 1 of the 17,000 greyhounds that get put down per year by becoming a foster family. I say family instead of parents because our hooman kids are just as educated and a part of this as we are. Fostering is by no means easy you take in a shadow their personality drained and spirit broken but with time they show you unconditional love, excitement and their real goofy personality, all just because they are now free.
We are now 9 months into our Greyhound foster journey. We have fostered 3 beautiful dogs Manny, Harry and now Cam. All with their own crazy personalities and traits, we are so thankful they decided to share those traits with us.
Scroll over the pictures of each dog to know a little more about them.
How can you help?
Even if you dont have the ability to adopt a skinny love jerk AKA greyhound into your life I am going to put a list of not for profit greyhound organisations below that need you. If its a like on Facebook, dontation or you have a little time to help with admin, adoptions, market stalls every greyhound will reward you with a loving lick or a leaning hug!
