Could you take a greyhound?
Posted on January 28, 2006
She went to the Blackberry Farm centre at AYlesbury to highlight the plight of discarded racing dogs on a three-minute Radio Nation spot produced by BBC Three Counties Radio.
"I went right round the centre with the kennel maids and I couldn't believe how many greyhounds and lurchers they had. And it's the same at so many dog rescue centres."
She is appealing for people to rehome greyhounds, which she says do not need excessive excercise - a common misconception.
"It's heartbreaking what happens to them if they don't succeed on the track. They are just turfed out by some owners, left to roam the streets and get knocked over," she said.
Mrs Cole has always been passionate about animal welfare.
She is please to report that her web appeal is having the desired results. "We get good feedback. I know we have helped quite a few dogs," she said.
In two or three years' time she would like to become more active in rescue work.
"I started the pet sitting business because of my love for animals and I stay active in caring for clients' pets. The day I'm stuck in the office is the day I'll probably give it all up," she said.
