Hythe Street Collection
Hythe, Kent
Saturday, 26th

Come along and meet our lovely hounds looking for homes - we will be in the centre of Hythe on the High Street raising much needed funds for KGR.  We are local to Hythe so we would like as many people as possible to help us promote KGR and the dogs in our care.

September 2017

Hop Festival, Faversham
Sunday, 3rd

This is a huge and very busy free event, celebrating the history of Faversham.  KGR will have a stall here on the Sunday (the event is on all weekend) - it is our first time at the event so we are not sure of the set up but we will have our big red KGR tent with us.

If you can help on the day please let us know - we are very proactive and like to take the dogs out to meet people, increasing their chances of finding homes.  To do this we need people who can walk the dogs around events and chat to people about KGR and hounds in general.  If you can help please email us at info@kentgreyhoundrescue.com
