Adoption donation – READ ME FIRST!

Adoption donation – READ ME FIRST!

Adopting a greyhound or lurcher from Tia is the beginning of a long friendship with one of the kindest, gentlest, and quietest dog breeds you will ever find. (They are smart too: which one of you has to go to work to feed the dog….?) Greyhounds and lurchers make wonderful companions as anyone who has adopted one before will be only too keen to tell you… whether you want to know or not!

Adopting one of our dogs is a journey for both you and the dog, but you may not realise that your adoption donation will help all the other dogs here at Tia too.

Before you adopt your new companion, we will have cared for him or her, possibly for many months or even years. The dog will have had a check-up with a vet, they will have been neutered, ‘micro-chipped’, possibly had dental work and will definitely have had lots of feeds! This, of course, all costs money and your adoption donation goes some way to helping us meet these essential expenses which really are never-ending.

Sadly, for various reasons, not all our dogs can be rehomed: perhaps they have health or mobility issues or, occasionally, they are just too nervous to make adoption practical. This means that we will have to find the means to look after our ‘for-ever’ resident dogs for the rest of their lives. Of course, we just love to do that, and we try to make their lives interesting and varied as well as safe, but to do this means that we have to keep funds coming in.

So, when you make your adoption donation, you are not just giving a new home to your new family member, you are helping lots of other Tia dogs as well. Your donation will help pay for staff, vets, accommodation, food and even treats.

It is up to you to decide how much to donate, but we ask for a donation of at least £300 which will help to cover some of the costs of caring for your new dog before she or he decided to let you adopt them. As an animal rescue charity, Tia will be able to claim Gift Aid on your donation (if you are an eligible UK taxpayer) and this makes your donation go even further.

So, thank you from all the dogs and their staff here at Tia for making a home for one of our four-legged friends and for helping to look after all the other dogs both now and for the future. Every penny helps and we all deeply appreciate your kind donation.

Barnabus

Clampett Smokey 29.5.17

Coursing bred in Ireland. Not nearly big enough to be a contender in that game frankly, though he is bred in the purple.  Arrived thin and petrified with a back story that he is lucky not to have been spaded by some kids in a wood. For the nicely brought up, it means the edge of a spade through the skull. It has been a few years since Tia has come across a victim of that method of dispatch thankfully.

 We are quietly getting to know him.

Bea

Outclough Emoji 4.8.17

Bea has won five races, which is five more than most in the block. Been flapping since her last race at Monmore late 2019. About 29 kgs and rather beautiful.

Tia suspects Bea won’t be here much longer.

Lougheys Lady 8.1.18

A baby. Still a bit of a star with eleven wins under her belt. Trailed in last back end at Kinsley and blew in last week.

Beautiful with her whole future ahead with bragging rights to boot.

Blanche

Tiermara Daisy 10.8.17

Tia loves types like this. Blanche took exception to being bested in a race in Yarmouth. It was a perfectly legal strategy by the winner but our lass wasn’t having any of it.

The “altercation” took place right in front of the judge and Blanche was disqualified for life. Blanche barely earned her entry money. Not the biggest of girls but will sit nicely on your two seater sofa.
