Santa returns to Daybreaks!

Sunday 08 Dec 2019

by Shanesmum

Updated: Saturday 07 Dec

Santa so enjoyed his visit to Daybreaks last year that he has agreed to fit in a visit to the kennels again - bringing presents for all good hounds!

Please drop in between 10.30am and 2.30pm. For just £1.50 your hound can visit Santa in his grotto and come away with a special present. We will also have our now famous Doggy Bags for sale, this time with a festive twist! Just right if your doggie can't visit on the day - you can take him a nice treat home.

There's plenty for hoomans too! Our Grand Christmas Raffle will be drawn at 2.30pm, and during the day there will be lots to tempt you to part with your money!! Yummy hot chocolate, mince pies and cake, Daybreaks merchandise, Christmas cards, 2020 calendars, and a chance to send a special Christmas wish over Rainbow Bridge by adding your message to our lovely tree.

Please pop the date in your diary, and join us to get the festive season well and truly started!

I am absolutely overwhelmed after yesterday. What a fabulous day and this has all been made possible to so many very wonderful people - to name a few - Santa and Mrs Christmas, Angie, Jo, Kate, Jill, Shauna, Lucy, Jess, both Shirleys, Richard, Denise and Lorna - honestly, the list goes on and I am so sorry if I have missed your name on this list as my thanks goes to everyone who helped as well as all our fabulous supporters.

THANK YOU for supporting Daybreaks - I am forever grateful.

I couldn't have missed the day for the world especially after missing last year. I have a scan this Friday and if it is good news,hopefully an operation on the 18th December and then I am hoping to bounce back with full force! A lot is changing with Daybreaks going independent and I am sorry to say goodbye to Greyhound Trust Solihull - I helped set up the branch back in 2003 but I am sure we will be able to go onwards and upwards to help keep rehoming the wonderful greyhounds we are lucky enough to have at Daybreaks.

Lorna will be offering mini pamper packages between 10.30am and 1.00pm. They consist of nail cutting, teeth scraping, ear & eye wipe, a brush out and finish with a lovely scented spray. All for a special Christmas price of £10 - ensuring your hounds are ready for the festive season.

See Lorna on arrival and she'll pop you on her list.

He's getting closer - Santa is approaching Daybreaks with a sackful of goodies for all those special hounds out there.

It is starting to look very festive at the kennels, and Santa's Grotto is taking shape. It's just £1.50 per hound to visit Santa and come away with a gift. Daybreaks own resident photographer Lucy will be on hand to take photos of your hound with Santa - you can order your prints from her on the day. We also have some lovely festive doggy treat bags for sale - containing, amongst other things, turkey sandwiches!

I have seen the array of raffle prizes and have bought a few more strips of tickets!! There will be Christmas cards, calendars and memory candles on sale - and our memory tree where you can add a decoration and send a message to your Rainbow Bridge hounds for a donation. Or for a more permanent memorial, why not order a metal tag to go on our Memory Wall?

Parking will be available at the top end of the Birmingham Exiles Rugby Club, where you can exit out onto the pavement adjacent to the A45 and it's a very short walk to the kennels.

Looking forward to seeing lots of friends & hounds to start the festive season.

Santa is busy sorting his gifts for good hounds in readiness for his visit to the kennels.

Tickets for our grand Christmas Raffle will be available at the kennels from tomorrow (25th). We have a lovely array of festive prizes - a chocolate hamper, a doggy hamper, a festive foods hamper and a Netflix voucher to name but a few!!

Our festive doggy picnic bags will be on sale for you to treat your hound, and there will be mulled wine, mince pies and cakes to tempt the humans - (don't worry, we have a non-alcoholic version for the drivers amongst you!)

You can send a message to your hounds at Rainbow Bridge by adding a star to our tree, or why not order a tag to go on our memory wall? We'll also have Christmas cards and calendars available, as well as a selection of Daybreaks merchandise.

Looking forward to seeing lots of friends, both 2 & 4 legged, as we get into the festive mood.

Angie xx
