Help us make a difference
Thank you to everyone who has helped us to continue here at the Kennels, you have been amazing and we can’t thank you enough for keeping us and the greyhounds going through these past months. Without your help we would not have survived. You are still continuing to help us by donating food, cleaning products, pooh bags, donating money from the sale of masks and even a bike. You are truly wonderful!!
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 and Give as you Live
Can buy 25 tins of dog food
Can buy two 15kg bags dog biscuits
Will help feed all of our dogs for the day
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
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.
Volunteer Dog Walker
Come and join our team, get some fresh air and help a greyhound have a happier day.
We are looking for volunteer dog walkers in the mornings between 8.00am and 11.00am at Crossing Cottage Greyhound Sanctuary, Sutton on Trent , Near Newark.
We are operating within social distancing rules in acccordance with government guidelines
Must have experience with dogs and transport. If you are interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
