Meet Logan

Ladies & Gents, meet Logan.

Logan is currently at our Sutton kennel and is waiting for the right family to come along to give him a ‘Forever Home’.
Logan is White & Black, He’s a friendly, happy Dog and is approaching 4 years old.
Wouldn’t it be greyt if Logan could celebrate his 4th Birthday with his new family in his ‘Forever Home’?
So, if you think Logan looks to be the one for you & you can organise Birthday Parties, give us a call on 0121 426 4810 and we can arrange for you to meet ‘Logan’.


Rosie and Benny urgently need your help.

Twitter followers – Rosie and Benny urgently need your help.
We need to put the smiles back on these Hounds faces, as at the moment they are very confused.
Benny has featured on many of our posters, banners and Facebook ‘smile it’s Friday’ pictures because he normally has the biggest smile that you would ever dream a Greyhound could have.
Sadly, their smiles are gone because through absolutely no fault of their own they have found themselves back with us in HG RGT kennels.
Their previous owners work circumstances have changed considerably and they were having to be left for very long periods alone. Their owner has explored many avenues to resolve this, asking neighbours, friends and relatives to call in during the day but this has not been successful & very reluctantly, they have now decided that they can no longer keep Rosie and Benny.

Can we please ask that no negative comments are made regarding the previous owners decision, as in this case it is the most appropriate course of action for the Hounds welfare.

So, we now need to get Rosie and Benny back into the home environment as quickly as possible.
Rosie is a petite ‘Blue’, 8 years old girl and is very small by Greyhound standards.
Benny is a gorgeous ‘Black’, 6 years old boy and is large by Greyhound standards. When together, they look like Little and Large.
They are both house trained, quiet, laid back, good on their leads and love lots & lots of fuss.
These Hounds have been together for some time, so, we want to rehome them together. Homing 2 Hounds is always more difficult, but in this case we are determined not to split them up. They will come with their own beds & coats (things that are familiar to them) and will follow our normal Adoption Process.

So, if you think you’re able to and would like to help these Hounds in their moment of need, please contact us on 0121 426 4810 to discuss.
Thank You.

What a busy weekend

Phew, what a busy busy weekend for HG RGT !!!!!!!!!…. But what a successful weekend !!!!!!
 Apart from the normal running of our 2 kennels, exercising & caring for over 30 of our gorgeous Hounds, we’ve seen 2 large successful events:

7 of our tireless volunteers took 5 Homeless & 3 adopted Hounds to the Great Greyhound Gathering in Nottingham. 2 of our Hounds (Carew & Striker) won rosettes in the show classes. There was lots of interest in our Homeless Hounds, with Beep Beep & Striker being reserved (pending home checks) & as an added bonus, our volunteers were commended by the Greyhound Board of Great Britain for the professionalism of our branch. 😃

Our Family Fun Day & Dog Show at Hall Green Stadium.

There was a really good turn out with approaching 400 supporters attending, more stalls then we’ve ever had before & masses of enquiries & interest in our Hounds generally, with Charlie, Maggie, Logan & Jess being reserved (pending home checks).

Wiz & Frazer were officially Homed & Joe, who was very recently returned to the Trust and had been placed in temporary Foster Care had his status changed from ‘Fostered’ to ‘Homed’ as his Foster Carer (Helen) just loves him soooooo much.
It was great to see so many of our recent Adopters & their new Hounds, many stocking up on the essential Greyhound fashion accessories. For some, it was their first visit to the world of the ‘Extended Greyhound Family’ – You were all welcome, we hope that you had a greyt time and that you met loads of similar minded people.
Let’s keep up the Greyt work of Hall Green Retired Greyhound Trust & we hope to see you again very soon!!!


A day out on Cannock Chase

Volunteers have been busy enjoying a walk on Cannock Chase today. The gorgeous brindle is ‘Carew’ and the pretty black and white dog is ‘Maggie’ she’s such a character she had us in stitches. 
If you’re interested in meeting either of these 2 Hounds (or any of our others), give us a call on 0121 426 4810


Group Walk – Waseley Hills Country Park

Don’t forget that this Sunday is our group walk at Waseley Hills Country Park.

You’re welcome to join us for our regular monthly walk at Waseley Hills Country Park. We meet in the car park at 10.30 for an 11.00 start – just look for the hounds! The circular walk takes about 45 minutes and at the end, a welcome cup of tea and other tasty refreshments can be purchased from the Waseley Café.

You can also buy Greyhound merchandise, and take part in the raffle (all proceeds to go to the Hall Green Retired Greyhound Trust).

It’s great fun for humans and canines alike and you can meet other greyhound owners, swap stories, and get advice. There’s nothing more magnificent than seeing 80-100 greyhounds setting off up over the hills.New Fancy a Walk picture

Say ‘Hello’ to ‘Eddie’.

Eddie is 5 years old and has just moved over to our Broadmarsh kennel near Stourbridge, he’s a gorgeous, friendly black beauty who has recently hung up his running shoes and is looking for a soft sofa on which to enjoy his retirement.

A real love sponge, Eddie went out for a pub lunch with one of our volunteers and his wife recently and enjoyed all the fuss and attention from the other customers and was not fazed by the other dogs who also accompanied their owners.

A bit partial to a carvery, if you’re looking for a dog for walks in the country and a stop at a pub, then Eddie’s your boy.

Contact us on 0121 426 4810 to arrange a visit to meet him.


Bob gets a Home !!!!!!!!

It may be raining outside (well it is a Bank Holiday!!) but for our longest resident ‘Bob’ the sun is shining brightly. He left us at HG RGT & went off to his ‘Forever Home’ today. None of the now customary ‘going home’ photos as it was far too wet but Bob promises that he’ll send you photos of himself with his new family in his new home very soon.
Congratulations Bob, you’ve waited a long time for this moment, let’s hope that you settle into retired home life quickly.
For this to happen, Bobs new family simply contacted 0121 426 4810 – you could do the same if you’re looking to Adopt, Sponsor or Foster a Greyhound.

Another Happy Hound leaves us – Bonnie

Another Happy Hound leaves us.
Today was the day when the gorgeous little fawn ‘Zoe’ left us at HG RGT and went on her way to her ‘Forever Home’.
Zoe has now been renamed ‘Bonnie’.
So, Bonnie, we hope that you really enjoy your retirement & your new home and that you keep in touch with us and let us know how you are getting on.
Don’t forget that we have many other beautiful Hounds like Bonnie waiting patiently for someone to come along and give them the chance of a home that they can call their own. Call us on 0121 426 4810 to arrange your visit.

Bonnie (Zoe) Homed

Here’s Judy

Ladies & Gents, meet the beautiful ‘Judy’.
You’d mistake Judy for an older Hound by the grey markings around her face but in fact shes not yet 3 years old (quite a youngster). Mainly Black with a few White flecks, she’s a super looking Hound and although a little nervous when she first meets you soon settles & wants to play. Judy is currently at our Sutton kennel, so why not give us a call on 0121 426 4810 and we’ll arrange you a visit to meet her.


Meet Whiskey

We’d like you to meet Whiskey.
Whiskey is currently at our Stourbridge kennel. He’s 6 years old and as you can see is a Black Beauty (with just a hint of white). He’s quite a large dog but behaves really well when he’s out & about with our volunteers, who all love him.
Whiskey’s problem is simply that he doesn’t stand out from any of the other Hounds & that’s why he’s been overlooked by so many visitors.
Give us a call on 0121 426 4810 to arrange a visit to take a close look at Whiskey – You’ll like what you see.
