Happy International Dog Day

It’s the dogs day here every day, but we’ll celebrate a little bit extra today.
Do spare a thought for all the dogs waiting for their forever homes in rescues up and down the country. Offer to volunteer at your local rescue, bring some treats for the dogs, spend some time with the sad and scared ones. Not everyone can adopt, but everyone can do something, no matter how small.

The lovely Niall

The lovely Niall. You can see for yourself that he is extremely handsome and stunning. He is also kind, affectionate, easy going and an all round good guy. Niall gets along with everyone, he travels well and loves to meet new people.
But, there is always a but 🙁 Niall has a chronic condition, Diabetes Insipidous, which requires twice daily medication, and blood tests every nine months to make sure that his values are as they should. He is also almost blind. In spite of these disadvantages Niall enjoys his life to the full. He loves to run and play, to go for walks and to have cuddles. We hope that somewhere there is a home that is just right for Niall. A home that understands that caring for a special needs dog can be very satisfying. Let’s find Niall that home.

Would you like to help?

We are sorry for so much radio silence on this page. It has been a tumultuous year, but some sort of normality is finally returning. Four dogs are booked to Italy, and one to Sweden, and the first transports after the summer will be in mid-September.
We have been very lucky to have had some funds to keep us going thanks to auctions organised by Anne Houben and Petra Elex, and GACI have made sizeable donations twice a year. There are also several individual donors who donate monthly. But funds and donations are always needed to pay for dog food, petrol, car insurance, utility bills etc.
If you would like to help, there are several ways to do so:
* Join our Teaming group. A small monthly donation, €1, goes a long way if many contribute.
* Buy a bag of dog food, €15, through the shop on our webpage.
* Donate through PayPal or to our bank account. Details can be found on our webpage http://www.claregreyhoundsanctuary.com/how-to-help/

We are applying for our charity number. Due to all the confusing events this year this has been unnecessarily delayed, and it is a very frustrating process which is being done in rare, quiet moments between minding the hounds and all the other work here.

Thank you so much for your support! ❤❤❤
