Charities I Support

Greyhound Welfare was founded, as a not for profit organisation, by Dawn Abraham in 1998 as a result of her love of greyhounds. Becoming a registered charity in September 1999
Since Dawn’s untimely passing, in October 2000, the Trustees have carried on with her message … and her son Annis Jnr … in memory of his mother and respect for his late father’s support for her work … is our PATRON.

Our stated objective is:
The relief of greyhounds who have been abandoned and who are in need of care and attention and to place them in such permanent homes as the trustees consider appropriate.

Our small group of volunteers strives to achieve this objective through a variety of activities ranging from fund raising to the practicalities of matching a dog to a home.
This is not a “give us your money” website. It is an explanation of our purpose and a gateway to the shared websites …
http://wwww.greyhoundsinwales.moonfruit.com and http://www.houndsandhomesinwales which exist to benefit all groups trying to re-home Welsh hounds. Just like this site they are maintained and paid for by Greyhound Welfare Trustees.
If you wish to support our work please don’t be put off by the lack of sob stories … they are there … but we aim to highlight the joys of ownership not the horrors that may have preceeded it. If you have a WINDFALL please feel free to share it with us.

Dawn Abraham and her dogs, Miss Beautiful (right) and Mr Pharaoh (left) taken in early Spring 2000.
Sadly, Miss Beautiful passed away in April and Dawn herself only a few months later.
Mr Pharaoh, however, lived a long and happy life until his 17th year.

Our connnection with the Abrahams is maintained by Dawn’s beloved son Annis Jnr … a well-known Cardiff businessman and successful author who brings his wife and daughters to our events whenever he has the chance and the time … away from a busy professional/ family life. Throughout the years he has always been there for us although his active support for Greyhound Welfare and other local charities is usually overshadowed by his devotion to football.
Amongst the busy, busy pictures on his website (now on 3,000 hits per week) it’s rather difficult to find the devoted father and thinking man within … but he is there.
