We are very grateful to all of our supporters for their help and donations during 2016. Our Annual Report for the financial year ending 31 August 2016 is presented below.
Greyhound Compassion works in partnership with Greyhound Rescue (Registered No.: 702522; Boston, Lincolnshire) referring suitable, potential permanent home offers for rescued greyhounds to Greyhound Rescue. Greyhound Compassion funded the following costs for Greyhound Rescue: kennel repairs and a new main door for the kennel block; veterinary fees; dog food; pet crematorium; waste disposal; oil for heating; publicity; as well as petrol expenses for the delivery of donated dog food and bedding. Greyhound Compassion also sponsors “Freya”, one of the permanent residents at the Greyhound Rescue kennels.
Greyhound Compassion continued its financial support for the galgos (Spanish greyhounds) at Protectora de Animales y Medioambiente Scooby (Registered No.: 93458; Medina del Campo, Spain). Funding has been provided to Scooby for staff costs, dog food, veterinary and kennel maintenance expenses for the galgos rescued by the shelter. Six Greyhound Compassion volunteers worked at the Scooby shelter at their own expense during the period under review. They cared for the influx of galgos at the end of the coursing season which coincided with the visit. They cleaned the kennels and external runs; did the laundry; sorted bedding materials; and launched a charity shop in aid of Scooby in Medina del Campo.
Greyhound Compassion made financial contributions to Limerick Animal Welfare (Ireland) and Dungarvan Rescue (Ireland) to cover kennelling, dog food and veterinary expenses, as well as the cost of preparing greyhounds for transport to mainland Europe to vetted homes.
