Volunteers needed please on Saturday 28th October to help man Tia stall at Trinity Walk, Wakefield. If you can spare a few hours to help sell Tia merchandise, tin rattle, run the tombola, raise awareness & promote Greyhounds & Tia, please contact Alison Lane, email@example.com. We are especially short on help for the morning shift. Unfortunately no dogs allowed.
The Barkyard Adoption Days
Volunteers & supporters in the Sowerby Bridge/West Yorkshire area…..
An opportunity to bring together potential adopters and dogs looking for their forever homes. The Barkyard invites local rescues to attend the event along with potential adopters who are looking to find their perfect canine companion. If you can spare a few hours to attend the event and speak to potential adopters about Tia and what fantastic pets Greyhounds make, please contact Alison Lane on firstname.lastname@example.org
The dates seem to fall on the last Sunday of each month so, know I’m aware of that, I will try and get to some myself in the New Year. Unfortunately however the October & November dates this year are going to prove difficult.
The dates of the next two Adoption Days are Sunday 29th October and Sunday 26th November. The event runs from 11am – 1pm.
I met The Barkyard at the charity fundraising day at Lloyds Banking Group at the end of August. They asked me if Tia would ever be interested in attending their monthly doggie adoption days on which The Barkyard invite local rescues to attend, along with a couple of their dogs who are looking for homes. Also in attendance are members of the public who are looking to re-home a rescue dog. The aim of the day is that potential owners will find their perfect canine companion. it would be great if some volunteers were able to attend but obviously it is difficult due to logistics – with Tia being based in Doncaster and The Barkyard in Sowerby Bridge. I did say that Dan & I would try and attend and take some Tia dogs but unfortunately the next few adoption days are on dates when we already have plans. Deb did mention however that you do have lots of volunteers & supporters in the Sowerby Bridge/West Yorkshire area and maybe someone could spare a few hours (even if they are unable to take any dogs) to talk to potential adopters about Tia and promote greyhounds as pets. I did ask if volunteers could take their own dogs already re-homed from Tia but unfortunately the organisers advised this wouldn’t be possible and only dogs looking for homes would be able to attend.
