Dash and Celia Cross - Part 2

You’ll be heartened to hear that the greyhound pictured in the previous post (‘Droopy’) is now a lot happier in the care of Celia Cross Greyhound Trust. As are his fellow rescuees from the abandoned kennel of a local greyhound trainer. Although out of the kennels, they’re not yet ‘out of the woods’, and are still waiting for adopters to welcome them into forever homes. In the interim, the wonderful people of Burgess Pet Care have sent no less than ONE HUNDRED sacks of their Supadog Greyhound & Lurcher food to Celia Cross. Dash and I met the marketing boss, Naomi, at the Cranleigh Show (see photo above). Burgess were the official sponsor of the launch of ‘Dash: Bitch of the Year’ and are supporting rescue organizations in a number of ways, one of which is the Greyhound & Lurcher Fund. For every 12.5kg sack of food sold, 20p goes into the coffers. You can imagine this makes for a pretty tidy sum, and now is the time of year when the fund is awarded to an independent greyhound & lurcher rescue centre. If that’s you, or an organization you belong to, then applications should be submitted to As for the Cranleigh Show, well, despite the torrential rain, £17K (at the last count) was raised by Celia Cross. Some folk are just indefatigable in their desire to help.
