Greyhound Rescue West of England.
GRWE takes in greyhounds and lurchers from members of the public, veterinary surgeries, dog wardens and the police. We also help trainers and owners rehome their racing greyhounds and some dogs also come to us from general rescue centres. Some greyhounds also come from as far afield as Ireland and Scotland if resources allow.
Wimbledon Greyhound Welfare.
We actively promote the fact that Greyhounds make wonderful pets and adapt to life outside of the kennels very well. We operate a 'No Destruction' policy, which means that no dog will be put to sleep except on health grounds, when there is no other option. All we have achieved, all that we do, is down to the efforts and sheer determination of our kennel staff, friends and volunteers, who believe, as we do, that every greyhound deserves a life after racing.
The Greyhound Awareness League.
The Greyhound Awareness League is dedicated to rescuing and re-homing ex-racing, ex-working, abandoned greyhounds and lurchers. The Greyhound Awareness League is dedicated to raising public awareness of the plight of the retired greyhound. Its aim is to encourage members of the public to meet and hopefully adopt greyhounds and lurchers and to dispel many of the myths surrounding these beautiful, gentle dogs. GAL is a non-profit making organisation, run entirely by volunteers, which gained charitable status in March 2001. (Scottish Charity No. SC 031037).
The Blue Greyhound
Bessie was a beautiful blue greyhound girl, born in Ireland in 1993. She'd been bred for the greyhound racing industry.In November 1997 Bessie was picked up as a stray in Barnsley in a dreadful emaciated state with mange and evidence that she had recently had a litter of puppies. Bessie went to a newly established rescue whereby in February 1998 she was adopted by Susan and her family. Bessie inspired Susan to raise funds for the rescue as well as promote greyhounds as pets. Most weeks they were out within the Huddersfield area raising funds, during this time Bessie became very well known and there were many articles about her in the local paper. After six years of raising funds Bessie retired at the age of ten, all that 'meeting and greeting' just became too tiring for her. Over the years Bessie had raised funds as well as inspiring many people to adopt a greyhound. At the age of 13, on 14th May 2007 Bessie had to be put to sleep. She had developed lung cancer and had begun to suffer. In Bessie's memory, Susan founded The Blue Greyhound to raise funds for as many rescue dogs as possible, as well as working to highlight the plight of the racing greyhound.

Karma's Cave
I began fundraising for Greyhound Charities and Greyhound Rehoming kennels. I started making tassels and notelets to sell to raise money, this soon escalated into the Kama's Cave.
