Owner of the Trust, Ruth Boswell, contacted Cello Aviation when a dog was brought in with the same name after her racing career ended at the Parr Barr Greyhound Track in Birmingham. Cello the dog ran 88 races, winning 15 and coming second in 14.
Vince Essex, commercial manager with Cello Aviation said: “When Ruth contacted us to tell us about Cello the Greyhound and explained about the fantastic work the Trust does, we thought it was a great opportunity to assist the charity especially as the kennels are just a short distance from the airline’s base at Birmingham Airport.”
Perry Barr Retired Greyhound Trust was setup in 2006 by Ruth Boswell and relies on charitable donations and has about 50 volunteers. It has re-homed and cared for over 1,800 dogs during its seven year history and is always thinking of new ways to raise awareness and funds.
With the support of Cello Aviation, Cello the greyhound has been able to raise awareness of the charity and has now been re-homed where she will be loved and can have a relaxing and enjoyable retirement.
