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

Salacres Benedict 25.7.18

Our stowaway. Thought he was off to Towcester again yet found himself on the Transporter with the rest of the gang. Not before time. Fell out of love with the game and his form has tailed off of late. 5,6,5,6,6,6 says it all. His owners wanted him safe.

He will be.  Big lump at 33 kg.

About Me

Never you mind. 12.09.16

Last raced in Sept 2018 at Sunderland and then disappeared off the planet.  Probably been flapping until his owners finished with him and dumped him in a wood.

Arrived at Tia a few weeks ago a bit moth-eaten and thin. Malcolm’s teeth were atrocious. 33 kg lump normally in need of a home and snogs.

Rupert

Rupert

I have to admit i don’t really want to rehome Rupert. He has had such an awful time. But he is coming on in leaps and bounds, literally, he jumped out of the paddock last week.

He is such a lovely boy and needs a home where he is the only dog to be spoilt rotten and most importantly fed. He loves his food. I will miss him.

Jack and Jill

Jack and Jill

Both: Un-named and born 10.9.14

Jack and Jill were owned by an old lad who died. He had had racing greyhounds all his life and these, his last two, were kept close by him. They were born in September 2014.

I think Jill misses him and Jack is lost. They had only ever lived with him and had a kennel and a run…they have never known anything like Tia.

Jill will only eat pasta and tuna, chicken, sausage rolls and steak pies.

They need a quiet home with a back garden….and a soft place to fall together.
