Bristol DAWG (Greyhound & Lurcher Rescue)

Bristol DAWG (Greyhound & Lurcher Rescue), Support Adoption For Pets

Bristol DAWG only became a Registered Charity in April 2010, but in a short period we have become a very successful organisation and during this time we have re-homed many dogs.

"With the wonderful grant we have just been awarded from Support Adoption for Pets for an industrial washing machine, our rescue greyhounds and lurchers will have lots of lovely soft comfortable duvets.

Providing good bedding is something which is very important to Bristol DAWG, as the majority of the dogs we rescue arrive very thin, as many have endured a life of living on concrete, straw or shredded paper – sadly this is normal for greyhounds.   We are very fortunate that we are supported by a hotel who provide us with king-size duvets, which one of our trustees makes into four beds, providing our dogs with what they consider to be sheer luxury – we are sure our dogs are smiling when they see these beds for the first time!!! 

However, we have for some time been struggling with the domestic washing machine that we have, which is on it’s last legs, so this machine will make a huge difference to the wellbeing of our dogs and will enable us to provide fresh, clean bedding daily.  There is nothing worse than being cold and greyhounds, due to their very thin skin, feel the cold more than almost any other breed. 

Thank you Support Adoption for Pets for keeping our hounds warm, we are so grateful for the help you give us. "
