Foster Report on Tank

Read the foster report here.

His name says it all. This striking lad loves life, loves everybody and would just love to leave kennel life behind him. Not one for the frail or faint hearted though, he's strong and will need an experienced home to help him understand that not every dog he meets looks like a greyhound.


It's time to paint the town red ...  kennels white

It's that time of year again and any time now we will be doing our best to give the kennels a lick of paint before our Birthday Bash on Sunday 9th April. Labour is free but we do need gallons of paint to make this task possible.

So if anyone could donate some white or black outdoor masonry paint or some white eggshell paint, or white or black satin paint for exterior wood/metal that would be brilliant. No half empty tins though as everyone will tell you this tips me over the edge! If in doubt then please call and check with the kennels. Thank you, Denise.

Saturday 1st April - Quiz Night - Ashford, Middlesex

We are arranging a Quiz Night in aid of Wimbledon Greyhound Welfare on Saturday, 1st April at St. Michael's Church Hall, Ashford, Middlesex, TW15 2QD (the usual place for those who've attended previously). Doors open 7.00pm for a 7.30 start.

The theme this year will be English Night (well we've had Italian, American, Welsh and French nights). The meal will probably be M & S sandwiches, pork and apple pie or quiche with pickles, Victoria sponge and tea and coffee plus nibbles, all for a ticket price of £10. Fancy dress is optional! There will also be a raffle. Bring your own alcoholic drinks.

Teams can be any number (within reason) and if you want to come as an individual or couple we will be able to fit you into a team, probably with people you know. Bookings to Let us know how many vegetarians are in the team (not vital but we just need a rough idea).

Always a brilliant and very popular evening - so book early and don't miss out.

Wimbledon Greyhound Welfare is an independent charity devoted to caring for retired racing greyhounds and finding them homes. We are self-funding and rely on the kindness and generosity of our supporters and the general public.

We care for approximately 80 greyhounds at our kennels in Hersham, and the majority of these are gifted into us by their owners or trainers once their racing days are over so that they have the opportunity to experience life as a family pet.

We actively promote the fact that greyhounds make wonderful pets and adapt to life after racing very well. Enjoy your trip round our website but better still come to our kennels and meet the stars of this particular show.



 Please consider using Gift Aid when donating.

Wimbledon Greyhound Welfare, being a charity in its own right, is now able to claim Gift Aid on all donations.
