This months round up

Heading quickly towards summer we are finding ourselves ever busier attending events in and around Essex,  if you feel you can spare some time to help out at any events please get in touch with Pat - click to email or tel. 01708 551 689.


The Easter break and Bank Holiday has seen a slightly quiet period for us, however as we head into a very busy events season we should see a significant pick up in rehomings.



Do you have any new items that you have never used that you are willing to donate to us to use as prizes at events we run?

Seeking a home for TJ

TJ, pictured below, is one of our special dogs, he has a condition called Pannus which requires daily eye drops to maintain. If re homed the RGT will continue to cover the cost of his medication which is around 8 - 10 a month. Rest assured though there is nothing wrong with his eyesight, he can spot someone with a treat bag a field away! He is ever so majestic and walks nicely on the lead. He will make someone a lovely pet one day. If you think he might be the hound for you, please contact Pat Philpot.
