Things you can do to help:


Tiggys Tribe

A great way to help on a regular basis - 

Tiggy came from a trainer at Perry Barr track.  She never raced as she was born with a deformed leg and she underwent 3 operations to straighten it.  Tiggy's Momma was retired at the same time and they live together happily in a home.  

Most greyhounds that retire from racing are transferred to Daybreaks Trust Kennels whilst waiting to find a home.  It costs around £6 per dog per day to keep them there , in addition to veterinary fees incurred.  This costs Daybreaks Trust thousands of pounds each month.  

Tiggy's Tribe is trying to raise enough money to cover the costs that this generates and therefore needs your help. 

You can pay a one-off amount, or pay by standing order (please see "Tiggys Tribe" tab at top of page.  The scheme is flexible so you can donate as much as you want, and as often as you please.

The more money raised - the more greyhounds can be helped.  Please help - you support is desperately needed!

If you would like to support, Tiggys Tales, please send your donation to
