The Greyhound Trust urgently needs the help this Christmas

THE Greyhound Trust urgently needs the help of people in Lancashire area to find permanent loving homes for greyhounds like Sergio and to help us look after them over the festive season.

Every year the Greyhound Trust finds homes for thousands of retired racing greyhounds. Greyhounds like Sergio, who has been patiently waiting for 2 years for his forever home. It hasn't been easy for Sergio, left with a deformed leg from an old injury that didn't heal properly. Through the patient and loving support of our volunteers, Sergio travelled across the UK to a specialist vet, who carried out life changing surgery to give Sergio the quality of life he deserves. He is now with one of our volunteer foster families working on his recovery.

Despite it all, Sergio is a happy, loving, and affectionate greyhound. Blessed with the greyhound traits of a gentle nature, calm temperament, and devoted loyalty that have made them a favourite breed from the Egyptians to King Canute. The only breed mentioned in the Bible, good with children and the elderly alike, these elegant 40mph couch potatoes are making a return to popularity as an increasingly popular family pet.

Sadly there are greyhounds just like Sergio at our branches all over the UK. At our local branch in Lancashire, Redley has been waiting for his forever home. Redley is an eight year old boy who has retired from racing now and looking for his forever home. He is slowly learning about one to one time with humans as we don't think he's ever really experienced it. He is learning to take toys and treats from you gently, as his favourite thing in the whole world is food and toys. Redley has a lot of love to give, and with patience and understanding with the right family, he will flourish. He's a fantastic lad looking for a very special greyhound experienced home to call his own.

It costs the Greyhound Trust ₤10,000 a day to continue to help greyhounds like Sergio and Redley. Money that covers veterinary costs, vaccinations, flea and worm treatments, leads, collars, food, bedding, and keeping them safe, secure, and comfortable this Christmas. Hundreds of committed volunteers will spend their Christmas cleaning out kennels and making sure all our greyhounds get walked and fed. We simply couldn't do this without their support.

To make that happen the Greyhound Trust is appealing for help, to find a forever home for Sergio, Redley, and the hundreds of others who you could give the ultimate gift this Christmas. If you are expecting a busy festive period and now is not the time to offer a home, perhaps volunteer a few hours to help with walking, donate some food, or even an old duvet to sleep on. Every single donation, big or small, makes a difference. Please help us, to help our greyhounds get their Christmas wish this year. Visit:-GreyHoundTrust.Org.UK/Sergio to find out more.
