The amazing Janet and Keith Smith from Congleton have once again decorated their house for Christmas and are donating the proceeds to Greenfields Greyhound Rescue and Sanctuary and Biddulph Wild Bird and Wildlife Rescue.

We were lucky enough to received a donation of £35.00 from Caterpillar Collars. What could be better, gorgeous collars and all the money made is passed on to rescues.
We were very saddened to hear that the beautiful, but sometimes irascible, Billy, passed away peacefully at home last week. Billy came to us after being rehomed by another rescue and not really being compatible with small children. He found his forever home with Lynn and Maurice and lived a happy and contented life, reaching the grand old age of fourteen.
Our thoughts are with Lynn and Maurice who are missing their special boy so much.
We have received £465.00 from the family and friends of Vicki Shone who died earlier this year. Vicki and her wife Sandra gave a wonderful home to one of our girls Sarah for many years. Vicki died many years too soon and we can only hope that she and Sarah have found each other and are together again.
We would like to offer our condolences and thanks to Sandra and Vicki’s many friends who thought of Greenfields at such a sad time.
This is a photo of Vicki’s adored Sarah.
A very big thank you to NVS for donating a whole van load of food for our greyhounds. They are certainly going to have very full tummies this Christmas.
A very big thank you to Rachel Moore and her colleagues at Davies Foundation who have donated £100.00 to Greenfields.
The Davies Foundation aims to support charitable causes across the locations where the Davies Group operates. Grants are available to support charity and community projects put forward by Davies staff. Rachel applied for some funding for Greenfields because the plight of racing greyhounds is a cause so close to her heart. Her father has two from us, Harry and Alice.
Caterpillar Collars creates hand-crafted, bespoke collars & other items for your hounds & you. Items are sold on a 'buy it now' basis. All profit is donated to rescues.
We received some very sad news yesterday. Sue, Mick and Chris lost their beloved Poppy. Poppy, who was thirteen, was the last of dogs from the notorious Zigzag kennels and joins Barney, Georgie and Kizzie all of whom passed in the last eighteen months and lived to a grand old age.
Poppy was lucky enough to find her forever home at 14 months and lived the best of lives with lots of other rescue animals on a farm in the Staffordshire Moorlands with her adoring family.
Our thoughts are with Sue, Mick and Chris who are missing her dreadfully.
A huge thank you once again to our wonderful Blackpool supporters Marian, Sandra and Paul, assisted and supervised by Figgy and Betty of course.
Sandra’s sister, Hilary, kindly donated her late husband’s jewellery to be sold in aid of Greenfields. The intrepid team spared no effort in getting the best price and managed to raise a fabulous £550.00.
Raising funds is very hard work and we feel truly blessed that the team have chosen to continually support Greenfields.
