Although all of our volunteers work freely and without pay, the average greyhound costs us over £250 to care for. There are always vet bills to pay including for vaccinations, neutering, worming, dental treatment and often other vets bills. In most cases the hounds come to us in very good condition but for those that need a bit of extra care there is often an additional expense. Some do need special (often expensive) foods.
Adopters are asked for donation of £200 but the costs of vet bills, food and kennel costs often far exceed the £200 donation.
Each and every donation-whether or large or small-helps us to fulfil our aim of rehoming greyhounds and finding the right home for the right dog.
