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

Northcroft Bambi, d.o.b. 15.10.2017

Actually Bambi is a good name for her. Won on her first outing and then robbed for last place in her third by a whisker. As she was the favourite, we guess this might have been a bit sobering for her connections.

Clara is completely cross eyed and cannot see directly in front of her, you have to wonder what they were thinking of.
Brought here from the flapping track which is amazing as her docs say she was rehomed as a pet!!!

Clara has been out in a home but didn’t settle and probably needs to go with another greyhound.

About

d.o.b. Unknown

This is Tango, Tango came to TIA at the beginning of lockdown at a very young age. We fostered him to build him up and make sure he had a better start to life than what he had already had. He was very small, underweight, scurfy, scared of noises and had malnutrition issues in his front legs (see the pics). We had no idea what breed he were but Saluki Cross was mentioned when we first got him and I’ve still no idea! Although now he’s made a good recovery he still needs limited/restricted exercise and plenty of TLC. A lot of exercise and running can often make his joints sore in his front legs but from what they were it can be expected. He’s still growing but he is still a puppy and behaves like a puppy so he needs someone firm who can spend time on his manners as he seems to forget himself and most importantly to manage his exercise and health.

He loves life everyday, he’s very affectionate and loves a snuggle on the sofa. He does get a bit rough with the kids, mine are 6 and he’s a bit much for them sometimes (think he thinks they’re dogs) but he doesn’t leave them alone and has to be in on the action (lockdown’s been tiring)! He’s good with all dogs, he lives with 4 small Bulldogs at moment whom he torments the life out of and a cat that avoids him like the plague. Hes brill with everybody and everything and not shown any bad temper until he’s asleep and someone invades his personal space but aren’t we all. He loves his food, loves playing in water but cries then because hes wet and will chew if he gets the opportunity. Your garden needs to be secure at all times as when gates open even slightly hes off like a shot and his recall isn’t that great at minute but with time and patience he will be a super family addition. My daughters managed to teach him to sit for treats and its took a bit of time but he’s enjoyed the challenge.

He will be very sadly missed as he’s a big part of my family, he’s such a great character and his love for life is infectious. He’s ready for his forever home with someone with a big safe garden and any other dogs that will tell him off because if not he will take advantage like he has with one of my Bulldogs lol. He’s a real big clumsy family dog and great in the car, he sleeps in a cage at night cos I dare not leave him out all night and he doesn’t like being shouted at….he likes the last word so it’s hard to stay cross at him for long. Best home only for this lad whose been through a rough journey first few weeks of his life, he doesn’t deserve any less.

About

Great name! Drinksonthehouse whelped 10.8.15
 
Won 7 races at Tralee and Belle Vue. His last win at the latter was in a race called “Friends of Belle Vue we need your support”. That aged well. Vasco last raced in March  2019. For some reason, he just stopped dead in a race, although the writing had been on the wall with deteriorating form for a while. Came last in his final three races…..form reads 6, 6, 6. Sometimes you swear they know something! Maybe he’d just had a guts full.
 
Vasco trialled a couple of days later and failed to qualify.  Arrived at Tia a week later in lovely nick. He is no fairy princess at 36 Kgs but has been stuck here for too long. He’s a nervous type but he won’t get any better in here will he. Needs a foster really to hold his hand in a scary world.
 
Someone we know preferably to bring him on a bit.
