WE NEED YOUR HELP WITH

Our Current Campaigns

Veterinary Fees

Greyhound Gap pride themselves in ensuring all of our dogs receive the best veterinary care available. Be that routine vaccinations, neutering, dentals, treatment of parasites or more complex specialist procedures via our local veterinary hospital. In the financial year ending September 2023 our veterinary fees were in excess of £75,000. We could not do this without your continued support. Womble pictured was abandoned with a broken leg. The cost to the charity to repair it was £3,500. 

Dietary Requirements

Greyhound Gap have up to 60 dogs in our care at any time. The most important element of having a healthy dog is a healthy diet. As well as a pallet of our main set feed each month we also have to order many specialist feeds. Hypoallergenic, low fat, kidney or renal are other common but costly foods used. Our feed bill averages around £2,000 per month. Donations such as yours enable us to ensure that our dogs leave our care with their dietary needs met and understood.

Mica - Adoped by Kate Wood Founder

At no point was there pressure to rush into adopting, the recure rather you visit several times to make sure the right decision is made and to build up the bond.

Cora - Adopted by Jessica Myatt​ Founder

The support pre and post adoption was phenomenal. Lisa was on hand everyday with check ins and clear instruction on how to settle our new hound into her new home.

Tink - Adopted by David Maynard​ Jenny Smith

We were really taken with Tink so next it was the home visit, all hounds met outside our house first then back inside to see how it all worked out, Wonderfully being the answer !
