Greyinghounds
Great news for retired greyhounds
in Shropshire, as they get their very
own Racers’ Retreat for the first time
IT’SALMOSTTWOYEARS since Country & BorderLife last
paid a visit to Greyhound Rescue Shropshire and Borders, and
since then much has happened at the centre, run by Sue and
Malcolm Tipton.
They continue to successfully rehome greyhounds and
lurchers and have just opened a new ‘oldies’ unit’ at the
kennels, which will home up to six elderly dogs at one time.
The Racers’ Retreat is for dogs with terminal illnesses or
who are simply too old to settle into a new home and just
want to enjoy their remaining days in quiet and comfort. The
unit has underfloor heating, plenty of donated settees and its
own paddock area.
“We’ve already had four dogs staying in the new unit,”
Sue tells us, “but fortunately they were all rehomed, which
was unexpected but really nice for the oldies!”
They’ve also opened a small shop called Paw Prints selling
bric-a-brac and secondhand books to help raise funds for the
charity and rescue even more greyhounds.
