Greyhounds are just about as gentle as you can get — and while they may be bred to race — they’re born for much more. It’s time to bust some common misconceptions people have about Greyhounds!

Greyhounds need loads of exercise.
Greyhounds aren't overly energetic and they love sleeping! On the rare occasions they are full of energy, these guys would rather be eating or playing than joining you on a strenuous hike or 10km run. Greys are built for speed – not endurance. A daily walk and some garden play time is usually enough to keep them happy and healthy.

All this week is Double Donations Week here at the NAWT as we look to raise funds for an exciting new project in 2022.  The Pet Care in the Community project will see us coordinating volunteer-led support for pet owners needing some help caring for their beloved companion at home; preventing the need for them to relinquish their pet to us for rehoming.

Between Tuesday 30th November and Monday 6th December, it's Double Donations Week here at the NAWT and that means your donation is worth double.  For example, if you donate £5 it will be worth £10 to us at no extra cost to you.

Thanks to our generous supporters and a pledge promise from PetPlan Charitable Trust, we have a total Pledge Pot of £25,000. You can help us unlock this pot by donating in Double Donations Week so that we can raise the £50,000 to launch an exciting new project.

For the past 50 years animal welfare and improving the lives of homeless animals that come into our care, have been a top priority at NAWT. COVID-19 has presented us all with many challenges but now that restrictions have been lifted and we are returning to a new normal, the pandemic has left a very worrying problem in its wake – serious behavioural problems in dogs and other animals.
