As an independent charity we rely on donations and fundraising activities to continue our work and look after the retired greyhounds in our care. There are several ways people can support our charity, these are outlined below.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions relating to fundraising: Thank you – we truly appreciate your support!

Thank You’s

And while we’re saying thank you, we would like to say a big THANK YOU to Beacon View Vets in Eastry, who collected Christmas goodies for our kennel dogs from their clients. The hounds got spoilt and we very much appreciate it! A huge Thank You to all the staff at Beacon View Vets in Eastry and their clients!!!

In February 2021 we received a substantial and generous donation from Support Adoption for Pets/Pets at Home and again we would like to say a big THANK YOU to them, their support makes a real difference and means a lot!!

PLEASE NOTE: When you visit the VIP Lifelines website you will find “Retired Greyhounds Canterbury” listed there as a charity. However, when using the VIP Lifelines app, we still appear as “Greyhound Trust Canterbury”. The VIP Lifelines team is in the process of changing this but in the meantime choosing “Greyhound Trust Canterbury” on the VIP app means the funds will go to us and we are still accumulating points. Thank you!

Auction items are constantly updated so please keep an eye out. If you think you have something that could help us raise funds please contact us. Thank you all for your valued support!
