More details from petition creator

Please help us by signing our 'Protect our Paws Campaign'. We are the Retired Greyhound Trust East Midlands and Nottinghamshire Branch, Crossing Cottage Kennels, Ossington Lane, Sutton on Trent, Newark, Notts NG23 6QR and we are petititoning to secure a safe drive to our kennels after one of our greyhounds sadly died. In the vets opinion this was after rough stones fractured and a small particle became embedded in her paw. This allowed an infection to penetrate the rest of her body and resulted in a serious infection, which ultimately killed her. Our greyhounds are now equipped with Therapaw boots to protect their paws in the interim period. The rough stony drive was laid by Nottinghamshire County Council in conjunction with Newark and Sherwood District Council who are not willing to repair or replace the drive to make it dog paw friendly. They have said that they do not have funds in this economic climate to make the surface safe for the greyhounds resident at the kennels. How many more dogs will have to suffer or even die as a result of the lack of funding? Please help us by signing this petition to raise awareness and ensure that something is done to help the greyhounds in our care.
