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.

Rhuba

Breed: Greyhound
Sex: Female

About

Power Talk Feb 2017

27 kgs wringing wet. Rhuba won at a number of tracks and on one glorious occasion took an Open race.

Clever girl for seeing the light as Rhuba ran slower with every race after that.

Welcome sweetheart, yet another little black girl snoozing away under her duvet.

Jay

Breed: Greyhound
Sex: Male

About

Jayvees Star d.o.b 1.9.2014

Poor old jay has had to come back into kennels from his home and is a bit shocked. Something everyone hates to see particularly as its through no fault of his own. Needs a quiet home without children.

We love you Jay.

Siva

Breed: Greyhound
Sex: Female

About

Another girl just unpacking her sponge bag. Not very big.

Cest Vrai 2.1.17 Google translates it as “It’s true”

Gloriously useless at racing. Once at Monmore and came last, showing her teeth at her fellow runners to boot. Card got marked.

Almost certainly, Siva won’t be here long.

Tranent

Breed: Greyhound
Sex: Male

About

Esker Jamie d.o.b 18.1.14

Tranent last raced back in September 2017. I say raced because he downed tools and refused to have anything more to do with the game.

We have a soft spot for these types!

Skeld

Breed: Greyhound
Sex: Male

About

Stepaside Lucas d.o.b 3.12.14

Another of Kaydees (Curie) kids. That makes him brother to Vaila, Diamond and Lulu.

It’s like Ancestry.com sometimes. Skeld is a veteran of 187 races and as tough as teak. Not quite as many as Boddam but he won more than him. Thirty six to be exact, and still going strong up to lockdown.

Skeld is like so many here at the moment, bog ,black and middleaged.

Welcome Skeld, perhaps some of your relatives will drop by.
