Kennel Renovations

i Oct 24th No Comments by

We are really pleased to be able to contribute to the kennel renovations at Greyhound Rescue in Boston, Lincolnshire – the greyhound rescue shelter we support in the UK. Greyhound Rescue is a true haven for the greyhounds Karen & Dawn rescue from racing. The greyhounds receive one to one personalised care, comfortable kennels, “cake” on Sundays and their annual Christmas dinner. All of the pensioners and greyhounds who prefer kennel life stay with Dawn and Karen who ensure their every need is met.

The kennels are getting a spruce up. Thanks to Greyhound Compassion’s fund-raising, we are able to help financially with the renovations. Our sales of donated goods, craft sales, the quiz night, street collections, the annual lunch party, the sponsored walk, the fun dog show, the spring sale, Christmas fair and proceeds from kind donations have made it possible for us to contribute to the cost of: new tiled flooring, loft boards, kennel doors, a washing machine, second hand kitchen units for the food preparation area and a new window for the kennel building. We are thrilled to be able to make the greyhounds’ accommodation even better and the cleaning and feeding much easier for Dawn and Karen.

The floor tiles have arrived and the loft boarding is nearly finished. The builders will complete the final stages in the coming weeks before the kitchenette and washer are installed.
