News & Events

We like to get out and about to show people what wonderful pets greyhounds and lurchers make and it is always lovely to meet our homed hounds again, so please do come along and say hello at these events.


Greyhound Awareness Day Date: Saturday 25th August 2018  Time: 10am – 3pm

Come and meet rescued hounds and chat to our volunteers.

Astbury Mere National Dog Celebration Date: 26th August 2018 Time: 10.30am – 16.00pm

To celebrate National Dog day we’re having a get-together at Astbury Mere. Enjoy a walk round the lovely mere and meet up with friends old and new. Browse our goodies or have a go on the tombola. Bring a friend who wants to find out more about homing a wonderful hound! If it’s lovely weather there’s plenty of grass on which to enjoy a late summer picnic.

There is a refreshment van selling hot and cold drink and toilets.

The Trust managing and maintaining the mere asks for donations from visitors  – there is a little machine in the main car park. Please be generous as the Cheshire East Ranger Service has invited us to set up stall here free of charge.

Location: Astbury Mere Country Park, Sandy lane, Congleton, Cheshire, CW12 4FP 


Timperley Country Fair   Date: Saturday, 8th September 2018   Time: 10am – 3.30pm

Once again we have a stall at this popular, family-friendly event. Come along and enjoy all the fun of the fair and meet some of our hounds.

Location: The Larkhill Centre, Thorley Lane, Timperley, Altrincham, WA15 7BJ


A special appeal: 


Please support this fundraiser to help rescue the greyhounds at the Canidrome in Macau, China, which is closing down. Hundreds of greyhounds will need to find new homes and a large-scale international rescue effort is being organised which will need funds to be successful.
