Greyhound Rescue West of England (GRWE) Eastern Region volunteers say they are thrilled that a media campaign has attracted homes for a litter of puppies; and they are set to celebrate with a night of music in Totternhoe.

GRWE took lurcher Cienna from a dog pound, after she was set to be put to sleep as a stray.

But having rescued waggy-tailed Cienna from her fate, the charity discovered they were taking in more than they expected.

“Cienna had nine pups, who at seven weeks old are growing up beautifully and Cienna’s now a retired Mum which she much deserves,” said GRWE volunteer Gulie Butcher.

“The pups all have home offers and our feature pup Chance, found his home through your pages and will be living very locally,” Gulie smiled.

Raising pups is an expensive business, so on Saturday, August 30 there will be a music evening with an interval quiz round at Totternhoe Memorial Hall, Castle Hill Road, LU6 1QQ to regenerate GRWE’s New Life fund - which has been supporting the puppies.

The fun starts at 7.30pm and lasts until 11pm. Gulie said that you can bring your own nibbles and buy drinks from the pay bar. Kevin Crompton will be playing Irish songs and covers of people like James Taylor, Ralph McTell, Christy Moore plus some well-known songs.
