Greyhound Day Out, Sunday 29th May 2022, Damhead Kennels

May 29 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Please join us for our Greyhound Day Out on Sunday 29th May 2022 at the amazing Damhead Boarding Kennels near Dumfries who look after many of our dogs so well as they wait for their forever homes. They have generously offered us space in their tranquil countryside setting to meet from 12 Noon to 3pm where we can take all the Rescue dogs out for walks. Its a fantastic opportunity for lots of Greyhound Chat whilst getting to know more about the dogs currently looking for homes and of course everyone is encouraged to bring your own gorgeous greyhounds too!

We will have many of our Rescue hounds in need of forever homes available to take for walks around the kennel’s peaceful grounds and fields and there is even a secure area for free-running so anyone whose own greyhound likes a safe zoomie can make a Pound A Hound donation and watch them kick up their heels off lead!

After all our walking, running and chatting, there will be a much needed opportunity for the Humans to enjoy something from the Coffee and Cake table. Please bring your walking shoes, poo bags and don’t forget your wallet as there will also be lovely DCGR merchandise for sale to raise funds for the hounds. Our wonderful Margaret Hill will be there too with Doggy Wear for sale such as jackets, leads & collars and will also be pleased to take orders for DCGR logo Human Wear! Even if you can’t attend in person please spread the word for all our patient pups waiting for their adoption chance.

As always, we are grateful to all the volunteers who make these days happen. If you are able to help us with baking or refreshments for the Cake and Afternoon Tea table, or if you can help with transport on the day, please get in contact through email on dcgrenquiries@outlook.com or message Viv on 07873 381470. You can also register interest and attendance via our Facebook or Twitter pages and share the event further.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!
