Greyhound documentary on Irish television

It has been quite an intense day processing the documentary “Greyhounds – running for their lives.” Which was shown on Irish television last night. It didn’t really show anything that everyone in rescue have not known for a long time, but it was still harrowing viewing. And it really brought home that doing this, running this sanctuary and finding homes for greyhounds, is the right thing to do. Most of the greyhounds here come from owners who do care enough to make sure that their dogs get to live out their natural lives. So very many greyhounds never get that chance. They don’t get the chance because there are too many of them, because they are disposable, because there isn’t enough resources to protect them and because welfare issues is an afterthought. In 2019 that attitude simply cannot be justified.

 

Two new boys

We have two new boys. The handsome litter brothers, Raymond and Richard. Only two years old. They are busy settling in at the moment, and better photos will come when they are more prone to stand still 😊 Both are nice friendly boys.
