Sponsor Us

You can really help us raise vital funds by Sponsoring a Greyhound or by Sponsoring a Kennel in Ireland.

You can do this as a gift for yourself or for someone else.

Sponsors receive a certificate, updates and photos, our newsletter, DVD, and a HUG car sticker.

We currently have three sponsorships to choose from:

Sponsor Dog – Marley Ref: HUGMMarley is a handsome, large, black boy who came into HUG’s care a few days before Christmas in 2006. At a vet check it was discovered that Marley was 90% blind. Due to his blindness and slightly grumpy nature it was decided to keep Marley in a permanent foster home. During 2011 Marley developed a problem with one of his eyes, and the decision was made to have it removed. Sponsorships helped to cover the cost of this operation. Marley made a full recovery, and his accident prone nature still gets him into all kinds of trouble!
  Sponsor Dog – Rusty Ref: HUGRRusty is our gorgeous Golden Oldie. He arrived into a temporary HUG foster home at the start of 2012 when, due to a change in circumstances, his previous owners could no longer give Rusty the care that he needed. His racename was Movealong Charm, and Rusty certainly knows how to charm everyone that he meets! He has since moved to a permanent foster home which he shares with four other hounds. Rusty is a sprightly 12 year old, and all his future care and veterinary costs will be covered by HUG through the Sponsor Scheme.
Sponsor a Kennel Ref: HUGKAs we do not have our own kennels, we need to rent kennel spaces at private boarding facilities within Ireland. The hounds remain in kennels until they find a permanent home, or until a foster home becomes available. The Sponsor Scheme helps to pay for kennel fees, and treats! Sponsors will receive updates every six months, with photos and information on the dogs which have passed through the kennel during this time.

There are two ways you can pay for your sponsorship:

OPTION ONE By a regular donation by Standing Order each month. We ask you to pledge a minimum of €2.50 each month (there’s no maximum)! If you would like to do this please Click here for our Irish (Euro bank account) standing order form. The form needs to be sent to your bank. If however you send it to us we can send it onto your bank for you.

If you are setting up a regular donation for a sponsorship, please contact us at sponsor@homesforunwantedgreyhounds.ie to let us know that this is what your regular donation is for, so that we can send your sponsor pack.

c) If it is for a friend please tell us their name and address, email address if you have it, and if there is a date you would like them to receive the sponsor pack by.
