Barney and Jenny

Today Barney and Jenny left for their new lives in Finland. Their departure became rather more dramatic than expected because of a flat tyre. But once a new tyre had been fitted, we got there. The van then decided to turn into a slug and it took a lot of cursing and begging to somehow make it crawl back from Limerick. I’m eternally grateful for downhill roads, and second gear. Very underrated second gear.
Have tge best lives now Barney and Jenny. You have both been a joy to have here, and we’ll miss you. ❤️ ❤️❤️

Phoebe’s big day

Today, after two years here at the Sanctuary, Phoebe went to her own home. ❤️ From the very scared young dog who covered in a corner to a dog who would greet visitors and loved to snuggle up close for cuddles. She has come a long way and now it is finally time to step out into the world. She will be fully supported by her new mum Rowena and brother Teddy. Rowena spent the weekend bonding with Phoebe before starting the journey back to UK today.
Happy future, Phoebe. We will miss you, but you are going on to your very own home. ❤️❤️

Thank you GACI

We would like to say a very big thank you to GACI, who have donated €1000 to all the hounds at Clare Greyhound Sanctuary. For many years GACI have found fantastic homes for our dogs in Italy and we are very grateful and lucky to be working with such a good organisation.
Thank you from all of us here. ❤️

Phoebe will start her new life in the UK

Sometimes very good things happen to those who wait. Phoebe was a very nervous girl when she first arrived here two years ago, and while she has relaxed a lot, she has still been a bit insecure around strangers. But today Rowena and Teddy came for a visit. Just a visit really, but it was love at first sight. Phoebe obviously knew she had met her human and became a cuddle monster. Later this summer, Phoebe will start her new life in the UK, and we are so very happy for her. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
