Sunday 7th May
"Car Boot"

What an incredible Day!!!
We didn't expect such a grand turn out for today's car boot, it was amazing to have so many of you with us!
Thank you for your smiles, updates and company.
The weather was certainly on our side too which was brilliant.
Thank you also to all our wonderful volunteers on days like today.Its the week end and many still give their free time, the Buttie Bar ladies (Cindy, Linda and Debbie) who work so hard to supply such yummy butties and cakes, Kath and Kathryn with their mouth watering jams and pickles, the walkers who make sure the dogs still get their time out and even meet new people while doing so, people you don't see working quietly behind the scenes, (welcome back Joan, we've missed you) and to Larry for keeping the parking in order.Thank you also to the staff too who have extra work on days like today and still manage to keep everything running smoothly :)
Wonderful day, long may they continue :)

"Charity Auction"

What a night! Fantastic result...approx £2500 raised!!!
We would like to say a huge thank you to all who have worked so hard to make last Thursday's Auction such a success, In particular the incredible volunteers Sue, Nicola, (Claire has been studying hard this year so may we take this opportunity to wish her all the best, good luck Claire) Elizabeth, Debbie, Katie, Ella and their 2 friends who have all worked tirelessly. 
Thank you to all the kindness shown by so many offering astounding donations from far and wide, to the Gainsborough Hotel staff who laid out all the tables and chairs and making us so welcome and not forgetting the very talented and amusing Auctioneer himself...what can we say entertained the floor with such enthusiasm and laughter once again and of course to all who came along joined in the fun too, from the heart of FDR, thank you so very much.

We sincerely hope you all had a great time too. 

We do try to thank everyone for their kindness and continued support towards FDR and hopefully we don't miss anyone, nothing is taken for granted and we consider this charity to be truly blessed by so many, thank you each and everyone of you

This is the very lovely Brooke who is on the search for a home to call her own now that she has finished her career in dog racing. 

Brooke is a very happy girl who's tail never stops wagging. She loves meeting new people and in the short time she has been with us she is already starting to be snapped up by our volunteer dog walkers as like most ex-racing greyhounds, she is an absolute pleasure to walk! She can get very excited and a bit bouncy when she first comes out of the kennel but she very quickly calms down and walks nicely by your side. Brooke has been off lead many times in our playpen where she likes to have a potter around but soon comes back for cuddle! She would stand there being cuddled all day if she could!

We have walked Brooke round with many different dogs here at the kennels and we have found that Brooke very much likes most dogs but tends to think smaller dogs are a bit like the small furries that she use to chase in her old day job. As such,  she would be best in a home with a dog more her size and no small animals. 

Brooke is a true sweetie at heart and would love a sofa and fire to call her own so that she can spend her days snoozing away and having lots of cuddles! She would make a great companion or family pet. 

Brooke has been out once but unfortunately decided that she doesn't really like being left so she will need to go to home where there is someone around most of the day.

No to cats and no children under 5

If you think you can offer Brooke the homes she so deserves, please contact the kennels on

Thank you!
