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.

Florrie

Lisson Fitsy 1.6.17

Florrie went out for a couple of drinks one night and this happened.  I’ll stand by you he said as the back door slammed. You’re not the first little girl, nor will you be the  the last.

A dire pedigree, useless racer (last in her only attempt) and Florrie gets into trouble just to put the tin hat on it. Her own Mum’s name is All Time Low.  Really???

Her pups are nearly ready to leave (all spoken for) and it is Florries turn for a bit of luck.

Kast raced at Kinsley final day before lockdown. Effie actually went out on a high note, finshing in some style. Not that big in size but a great big heart.

Breed: Whippet x Belington

About

Through no fault of her own Sasha has been returned to Tia. We are looking for a very special forever home for this lovely young dog but will require a family willing to work with a behaviourist to help her adjust to her new home. Due to her previous circumstances Sasha now reacts to any feeling of threat with aggression. Her new owners will have to take the time to get to know her while in the kennels and she will only be rehomed once there is a connection between her and the adoptees. She cannot be rehomed with a family who has or who wants children, the family must have space for her to have her own area, be prepared to be patient to gain her trust in humans again”. She is fine with other dogs. Would benefit from a secure garden and loves to have a good run in a secure paddock.

She originaly came to Tia 16 months ago, she was a stray and was in a right state.

This poor little dog deserves a home where they address her problems.

Ideally she needs to be rehomed around the Huddersfield area so she can go and see Wendy @ Donaldson’s vets to sort her little mashed head out…
