‘In view of the Prime Minister’s advice to UK citizens on 23rd March, 2020, not to travel and stay at home we will not be re-homing any of the greyhounds in our care at this time’. ‘We are still happy to have telephone conversations about re homing in the future’. ‘We are constantly reviewing our strategy and obviously we will keep you posted should there be any new developments.’ ‘We would like to thank everyone for being so understanding and patient in these troubled times and for all the donations we have received to help our greyhounds who remain in the kennels’ ‘We hope that things will be resolved very soon and please, ‘stay safe and look after each other’
Because all our lives have changed spare a thought for your greyhound because their lives have changed too, with limited walks and both adults and children at home and not at school or work. Please make sure your greyhound has a safe, quiet place to go. Greyhounds, no matter how quiet they are, can get irratable and fed up and their way of showing that is to growl and be grumpy.
Make sure everone stays safe (including the greyhound) in a calm, happy home’.
‘John and I and the Team would like to thank everyone for their wionderful messages of support and kind thoughts.. These messages have made us feel quite emotional to know that you are thinking of us here at the kennels. Our wishes are that you all keep well and safe in these uncertain times and we look forward to seeing you soon when hopefully we will see better times ahead ‘
‘Thank you all so much for your donations which are keeping us going and keeping our greyhounds happy and healthy and cared for’
Thank you so much for all you are doing to help us James and Tara
Takr care with love

Help us make a difference
We have a variety of ways you can help us raise even more money to look after these special dogs. You can also make a direct donation to us via PayPal. To find out all the ways you can help, visit our fundraising page.
Adopting a greyhound
Greyhounds make wonderful family pets. They are intelligent, lovable, fun-loving, gentle creatures and make loyal companions for people of all ages. Many people think that greyhounds need lots of exercise. But the truth is they are sprinters rather than long distance runners. Two 20-minute walks every day is enough to satisfy them, although they are also happy to go on longer walks.
Not everyone can give one our dogs a home, but we still need your help.
We have a range of sponsorship opportunities that can really help us to help more retired greyhounds.
Looking after greyhounds while they are with us is an expensive business and sponsorship makes it possible to help even more greyhounds.
Sponsorship is also the perfect gift for the animal lover close to you. You can give sponsorship in someone’s name for as little as £2.50 per month

What We do
Our job is to find the right homes for our charges. The dogs we have available can be seen on this site. Come along and get information about greyhounds, chat to current greyhound owners, meet the greyhounds and take one for a walk.
We know not everyone can adopt a greyhound, but you can still help us look after these lovely dogs, by taking part in fundraising activities. If you have an idea to raise money you can get in touch with us.
We have a complete guide on how to care for your greyhound, from when you take them home all the way through to house training, feeding, and what to do as they get older.
We want to make sure you get the right dog, and the dogs get the right owner. We’ll walk you through the entire process of adopting a greyhound, including introductions and home checks.
What Drives Us
Our job is to find the right homes for our charges. The dogs we have available can be seen on this site and there is also lots of information about greyhounds and how to look after them. Have a look and then give us a call – or better still come to to the kennels and meet the dogs.
If you’d like to get involved with Crossing Cottage Greyhound Sanctuary, we are always looking for people to help. From helping to care for our residents, or helping to organise events, or to help with fundraising.
