    Story

    Hi, I am trying to raise much needed funds to build and furnish a new rehoming Greyhound kennel block here In Somerset. We currently have kennels in Dorset but we have to travel 1 hour and 15 mins to get to them which takes up much needed petrol funds and means we cant get to walk them or get to know their wonderful characters as much as we would like to. So to have Kennels in Somerset as well will enable us to rehome many more. We have some land now we need to raise the funds to build our very own kennel block where we can start to give the beautiful greyhounds in our care the best start of a new life after they have finished racing. We also have been given some private funding to build a much needed reception area from one of our lovely volunteers who sadly passed away last year. To have our own base and kennels will be amazing and allow us to rehome and nurture many more hounds. Anyone who as ever owned a greyhound will know what amazing, loving, loyal, funny and gorgeous girls and boys they make and its our aim to keep finding loving forever homes for them. With your help it would be truly amazing to have our very own greyhound kennels and centre base here in Taunton, Somerset to.
    Our wish list:
    We need 4 Kennel Windows priced at £75 each
    5 kennel doors priced at £60 each
    Raised Feeders
    Large plastic Beds
    Cupboard
    Lino Flooring
    Smoke Alarms
    Fencing
    Beding platform
    Shrubs and plants for Paddock
    Roof insulation
