MAKE THEIR DAY, ADOPT A GREY
We would like to say a heartfelt thank you to all the people who have taken on a Greyhound in 2014 and also to everyone who has donated something to help these majestic animals to find their forever loving homes
Welcome to Bridlington Branch of The Retired Greyhound Trust
This branch was formed in 2007 with the main aim to re-home as many retired greyhounds as possible to loving permanent homes,. along with going to fundraising events and raising public awareness of these majestic animals.
Greyhounds make wonderful family pets and companions and our priority is to make sure they find a loving and caring home. We will advise you which dogs we feel will suit your circumstances.Please have a look at the profiles of our dogs and get in touch via the connect link on the contact us page.
"Alpha Feeds" greyhound complete meal is fed to all our
kenneled greyhounds and a majority of our owners greyhounds, which can
be obtained direct from this branch.

Tour De Yorkshire
On Friday 1st may 2015 the Bridlington Branch will be at the Barn Bistro, Coastal Road, Burniston, Scarborough, YO13 0HR we are asking anyone who has got time on their hands to come along and support us at this event you will be able to get food at the Bistro as well as drinks Tea/Coffee etc as well as something stronger for those of us who don't have to drive
With the snow and ice expected the roads
are likely to be gritted. If your pet walks on gritted roads or paths
then please make sure their paws are
washed by dipping their feet in fresh warm water once at home. Every
year hundreds of pets throughout the country become seriously ill and in
some cases die because of the rock salt and antifreeze being used
during the cold snap. Dogs and cats walk through the substances left by
gritters trying to clear roads and car drivers defrosting their
windscreens which they then lick off their paws and ingest. Consuming
rock salt can cause dehydration, liver failure and pancreatitis while
antifreeze contains the chemical ethylene glycol which can cause kidney
failure and death when consumed. Please be vigilant and treat your pets
to a foot bath after being outside.
Greyhounds & Tea
Somebody once said that Greyhounds do not like tea well we have news for them they do here are some pictures taken of the Greyhound ZIG ZAG PEARL drinking tea from a pot, the only problem is that it has to be out of a CHINA MUG or she will not drink it, nor will she drink it out of her dish, so you see Greys are choosey to say the least.
On Friday 12th December our Retired Greyhounds were invited to a coffee afternoon meet & Greet at Portland Mews as you can see from all the photo's a good time was had by all. Our greys were in their glory making themselves at home, and enjoyed being fussed over. A total of £98 was made and donated to our branch so a big thank you goes to the staff and people at Portland Mews for a great afternoon.
