Evesham Greyhound and Lurcher RescueFeatured
Evesham Greyhound and Lurcher Rescue
The Evesham Greyhound and Lurcher Rescue was set up in 1989 by Pip Singleton who started bringing Greyhounds and Lurchers into her home in an attempt to stop them being destroyed.
The rescue grew and is now run by about 10 volunteers and has foster homes that look after and raise funds for the 70+ dogs being cared for at any one time. Hundreds of Greyhounds and Lurchers need good homes every year, some are ex-racers, rejects from breeders, but the majority arrive with little or no background.
All of them need love and attention. However, far too many need to be nursed back to health or be rehabilitated to help them overcome physical or mental scars.
Some of them never fully recover and those dogs are given homes for life with some of our volunteers as EGLR Sponsor Dogs. As a rescue we adhere strictly to a non-destruction policy. Up to 1000 dogs are brought in every year.
Ranging from new born pups, pregnant bitches to elderly dogs. Many of the dogs get together once a year at our annual fundraising dog show which is great fun.
Evesham Greyhounds and Lurchers live all over the country, there may be one near you.
So no matter where you live if you can offer a loving home to a Greyhound or Lurcher please visit their website and see how you can help ....
EGLR Dogs for Sponsoring
Unfortunately not all of our rescue dogs are successfully rehomed, some arriving after suffering unimaginable cruelty and circumstances. These dogs stay with us at EGLR and become long term fosters.
Each dog is unique,having individual requirements including socialisation, overcoming fears etc, veterinary care and special diets as well as the normal doggy needs of food, bedding, toys and treats.
By sponsoring one (or more) of our dogs, you will help us to make sure that these dogs receive everything that they require for a much deserving happy life.
The sponsorship fee is £20 per year and £10 for children (12 and under)
