The grand opening of Racer's Retreat at Moorlands

Taken from http://shropshire.retiredgreyhounds.org/index.asp

The first is our new centre for elderly greyhounds, a home where those dogs who have terminal illnesses or who are simply very old may enjoy their days in quiet and comfort. The underfloor heating is in, there are plenty of settees and their little paddock has just been turfed! We will be able to home five or six dogs there at any one time and we will keep you up to date with developments. We have decided to name the unit "Racers' Retreat".

Our second development is right next door and is designed to raise funds. This is "Paw Prints", a little shop where people can browse hundreds of Malcolm's books at their leisure. There's also a small selection of bric a brac - anything, in fact, that will sell! Do come along and take a look - and buy!

We are planning an official launch for these new activities on Sunday 26th April. It will take the form of an open day probably to include a barbeque. Please keep an eye on the diary for further detaiils. All are welcome to the party!


Sunday 26th April

12 - 4pm

Opening of new kennel block - "Racers' Retreat" - at Condover which will be used to home the older residents (See article on Home and News page)
and our charity shop - "Pawprints".

We will combine the above events with a Home a Dog Day at the kennels.

Weather permitting there will be a barbeque, a grooming table and merchandise for sale.

This is a very exciting development for GRSB and we do hope as many
people as possible will come along to support us.

Being an avid reader, I can guarantee that Paw Prints is absolutely fantastic.... loads and loads of books - some new ones too. 50p for a paperback and £1 for a hardback... cheaper than Amazon LOL

Hope the opening and the Home a Dog day went well.

Racers Retreat is a great name for the unit. My brother used to keep Greyhounds many years ago. When they retired we kept them as they made wonderful pets. Thumbs up
