For over ten years Tia Greyhound & Lurcher Rescue have been committed to rescuing and rehoming, stray, abandoned and ex-racing, greyhounds and lurchers. Tia operates a 'no kill' policy believing that no animal should be put to sleep because a home cannot be found immediately or because veterinary treatment may be too expensive.
Tia is an independent not-for-profit organisation and does not receive any money from the racing industry. Tia relies solely on the public's generosity to provide support for the dogs who have often been mistreated, traumatised, starved or neglected, and to provide them with a new life.
Goblin Ridge Limited will donate £20 from the sale of every new website* to Tia Greyhound & Lurcher Rescue to help them continue the wonderful work they do.
Tia are always in need of volunteers to help with fundraising and looking after the dogs. If you have some free time to help (or money!), Iím sure they would love to hear from you.

This is Rick. He was born on the 1st October 2006.
His racing name was Calzaghie and Rosedale Ricky.
He had a few races in Ireland and then came here where he had a dozen races at Sittingbourne. His last 25 races were at Kinsley stadium at Wakefield / Pontefract. He was still winning in July last year but then his career took a nose dive. In his last seven races he was last nearly every time.
So in September 2009 Rick's racing career, which lasted about 18 months, was over, and he was on the scrap heap at the ripe old age of 3.
When I got a call to get him at the beginning of April, from a stray kennel in Burnley, this is what he looked like. Still, there isn't a problem with greyhound racing is there?
The information about Rick was taken from Tiaís website. Goblin Ridge Limited cannot guarantee Rick is still in need of a home. We do not keep an up-to-date list of the dogs currently at Tia. Hopefully Rick has already found his "Forever Home". Sadly there will still be many more dogs that havenít.
