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.

About Me

Flotta is a 5 year old ex racer running 76 races and winning 9. She has been on foster with me since the end of March and it has been lovely watching her personality come out and her confidence grow.

She seems very adaptable to all changes and new experiences for her, from walking on a busy foot path to sitting in a car to travel and exciting new walks. Although in while in lockdown she has had some long walks 1-2 hours she is happy with 2 small ones a day Am and PM around 20mins. Then she mainly is happy to snooze the day away.

She has socialised in enclosed areas with friends and families dogs on more than one occasion and seems happy with and again more recently with family members in there gardens and has been fine with children. (Youngest seen here with 13yrs). It was lovely to watch her play and have a mad 5 minutes. Flotta has more recently stayed overnight at my partner and parents house and once again has been great, sleeping in her basket on on a rug.

She has been know to occasionally have a chew on something like a flip flop and not the toys that I have bought her but know on just aware and move things off the floor. She does like a chew stick and give her one if shes gonna be left along for a short time.

I always walk her on a lead unless enclosed areas and she in that situation she does come back once called, ( maybe not the first call).

She will lie down when asked, we mainly do this at meal times, if it’s for a treat she sometimes just gets a little to excited.

When walking I always say wait when crossing a road, although this is always on a lead and ongoing work.

I really will miss her company she is such a laid back dog, just goes with the flow.

About

Dolls Pram, D.O.B. 18.11.2016

Reiff had a respectable career at Monmore winning four races. A medium sized Irish girl, weighing about 27kgs. Tia has managed to find four videos of her races but as she finished last in all of them we will spare her blushes. They were pretty rough races as well and don’t make good viewing. Her last three race results read 6,6,6.

The pictures don’t do her justice, Reiff is as smart as a bandbox to the point of being a bit flashy.
