AN APPEAL to find new homes for retired greyhounds has been given some model backing.
The Retired Greyhound Trust’s appeal has now been endorsed by fashion icon Twiggy.
The trust’s Mildenhall branch has more than 10 greyhounds who need homes.
Twiggy - real name Lesley Hornby - said: “I am devastated to hear about the Retired Greyhound Trust’s struggle with homing figures.
“I would urge anyone who is considering a dog to thihnk greyhounds.”
The trust’s homing figures were down more than 500 in 2010 than on the previous year.
Ivor Stocker, from the Retired Greyhound Trust, said: “The homing figures for 2010 are really disappointing for our hard working volunteers and bad news for our greyhounds.”
