Evesham Greyhound & Lurcher Rescue
A Lovelly Story

PollyPolly, pictured here, was adopted from EGLR in 2012 & we have just received this wonderful message from her Dad, Richard:-

As a great admirer of EGLR I have thought of an unusual way of lending support. I am a widower and in October I met a wonderful lady called Vanessa and we are to be married on the 20th of June, 2015. Instead of having presents we have asked for a donation to one of five charities including, of course EGLR . All food etc is provided along with a free bar so we really hope that we can gather some great donations. We are both delighted to be able to lend our support to such an excellent rescue and of course POLLY our saluki greyhound cross thoroughly approves!

On behalf of EGLR we would like to thank Richard & Vanessa so very much & wish them all the very best for a wonderful day on 20th June.

Fantastic news about Eddie

EddieWe are delighted to let you know that through your incredidle generosity we have received enough money for Eddie to have his operation which he had this about a week ago and is pictured here on the way to recovery. He is getting stronger every day. He can now walk with ease, sit and lie down without any problems. His stitches will come out next Wednesday and then he will need x-rays in 4 weeks.

We can not thank you enough for your support with Eddie's operation as without it we simply would not have been able to afford to have it done.


A Fundraising Climb

Snowdon A great supporter of EGLR Caron Reeves is planning a fundraising walk up Mount Snowdon in June and we would like to wish her the best of luck and also like you to support her in her endevours. She will be supported on her walk with her rescue lurcher Slim who is with her in the photo here. We asked Caron about her walk and the reasons she is doing it to raise funds for EGLR and this is what she had to say:-

I will be walking up Mount Snowdon in Wales on Saturday 27th June this year to raise much needed funds for EGLR and I am looking for supporters to help me raise much needed funds.

I have done hill walking before, but no mountain walking, simply because I have a fear of heights. This will mean I will be presented with personal challenges along my route, but knowing I am raising funds for EGLR will keep me going. For all the folk who know and have walked up Snowdon I will be walking up the Pyg Track and coming down the Miner's Track.

Slim, our rescued Lurcher pictured in the photo with me will be participating in the fundraising from the comfort of the settee!. He is 12 years of age and likes the slower pace of life nowadays.

I live on the most northerly island on the Shetland Islands and must be the most Northerly supporter of EGLR in the UK.

I am also doing the fundraising walk up Mount Snowdon in memory of our Otis who we adopted from EGLR and brought up to Shetland to live with us all. Sadly Otis developed Osteosarcoma and had to have his front leg and shoulder amputated. He made a remarkable recovery as a Tripawd and lived life to to the full on his three legs. Sadly however the cancer returned, this time to his lungs and we had to make the extremely hard decision to let him go.

Please support me and help raise funds for EGLR so they can continue to look after Mr Moon, Eddie, Scarlet, Dixie to name just a few of the many hounds in their care and find their forever homes.

Thank you Caron for your support.

We need your help.

EddieTo all of our wonderful supporters we urgently need your help. We have a very very special dog called Eddie and this is his story:-

Eddie came to us in February, we noticed almost straight away that he had a strange way of walking and sitting, he could not walk far and was not able to play or run with his foster sister, even after a short walk he would drag his back legs. We took him to the vets and to cut a long story short, it was discovered he had ruptured cruciate ligaments in both legs. We put him on Catrophen injections but this did not seem to help, so the vet has suggested we do a procedure called a Tibial Tuberosity Advancement or TTA surgery. This operation will cost in the region of £3000 but will greatly improve his movement and allow him to run and play with his friends. Although we have had lots of people interested in rehoming Eddie , no-one would want to take on a dog that cannot walk properly. So we are appealing for your help, if all our followers donated just £1 we would have enough to book Eddie in to have this much needed operation.

Eddie deserves our help, it's only money that stands in the way of Eddie having a better more for filled life, and would become a rehomeable dog, how sad that money is so important and stands in the way of this boy living a better happier free from pain life, come on everyone work your magic, show Eddie the power of love and Facebook, We can achieve this together, but we need your help to do this, one pound will give Eddie new legs yep just one pound, we have nearly 9,000 Facebook followers can you imagine if everyone of these people ,donated one pound just how much money we would have, enough to help Eddie and many many more, come on people let's do it.

Love Pip
