How did Daybreaks start?

'Daybreaks Beauty' was the racing name of my very first Greyhound, Tara, who I adopted from Birmingham Dogs Home in January 2001.

Realising Tara was an ex-racing greyhound, I researched and found out more about what happens to greyhounds and wanted to help more like her. I found a small group of greyhound friends, and we helped form Perry Barr Retired Greyhound Trust (PBRGT) in March 2003, and we rehomed greyhounds with the help of a trainer's kennels.

Sadly the arrangement with the trainer came to an end in 2005 and in desperation to find a new rehoming centre, I packed in my job as a medical secretary and on Saturday 1st July 2006 I opened Daybreaks Kennels - aptly named after Tara, after all, she started my love for greyhounds.

My precious Tara lost her battle with bone cancer on 27th May 2007. My world fell apart however I needed to still do more, so I set up a new charity called Daybreaks Trust. The money generated from this Trust goes directly to helping Daybreaks improve and continue, especially with essential maintenance, and help the foster dogs in our care.

Perry Barr Retired Greyhound Trust, which is a branch of a national charity, and Daybreaks Trust work hand-in-hand. Both Trusts are fully committed to helping the greys we are lucky enough to meet.
