Former European and Commonwealth champion and dog lover Iwan Thomas is launching a new campaign to help increase the number of Greyhound dogs re-homed in 2011. The Retired Greyhound Trust is working alongside the Greyhound UK Buses to ensure that unwanted Greyhounds find new homes and loving owners.
Iwan, the latest celebrity to pledge support for the Retired Greyhound Trust, following fashion icon Twiggy said: “I’m a huge dog lover. Greyhounds are wonderful dogs so it’s great to see a company of the stature of Greyhound get behind such a worthy charity. I would urge anyone who is considering a dog to think greyhounds – I certainly hope to adopt one in the next few months.”
