A DOG rescue centre is in danger of closing, after becoming homeless itself.
The Tia greyhound and lurcher rescue charity houses between 70 and 80 dogs at its kennels in Sowerby Bridge.
Its home of the past three years is leased and the landlord now wants to build on the site.
Tia, which receives most of its money from Huddersfield people, has to be out of its home by August.
It would like a new home in Huddersfield.
Ms Louise Barritt, who owns the rescue centre, said:
"We may be forced to close if we can't find other premises."
Ms Barritt invested £15,000 of the charity's money on the site, by building three paddocks, surrounded by a concrete fence, in which to exercise the greyhounds.
Ms Barritt lives in Ryburn Buildings, Sowerby Bridge, and may have to sell her home to pay for new accommodation for the charity.
She added: "We have spent the last six months contacting estate agents and landowners in the hope of finding suitable premises.
"We are appealing to anyone who may know of suitable premises available to lease or buy, perhaps existing kennels or redundant farm buildings and land."
Tia receives support from the Retired Greyhound Trust, but raises most of its cash itself.
Supporters organise street and supermarket collections and attend shows and game fairs.
Scores of greyhounds used in the racing industry are abandoned every year.
Ms Barritt said: "Our aim is always to find permanent family homes for the dogs.
"But some dogs can't be re-homed and they live a secure and happy retirement at Tia."
