Retired Greyhound Trust seeks help to rehome pets

A CHARITY wants more help for greyhounds.
The Huddersfield and Wakefield branch of the Retired Greyhound Trust, the national UK charity dedicated to caring for and rehoming greyhounds which have retired from the track, is launching a new campaign to encourage people to spread the word that greyhounds make great pets.
Kath Armitage, who heads volunteers at the local branch, said: “Sadly many people overlook retired greyhounds when choosing a pet because they’re perceived to be the lively boisterous athletes they were on the track. Those who’ve experienced these lovable, elegant dogs will attest that this could not be further from the truth.”
If you think you could offer a greyhound a loving home or you are interested in finding out more about retired greyhounds as pets, ring Kath Armitage on 01924 848121 or see westyorkshire.retiredgreyhounds.org
