The Greyhound Trust has issued a plea to West Norfolk residents for help over the festive period.
Staff and volunteers are desperate to find permanent loving homes for a number of retired greyhounds.
They also need help to look after the animals during Christmas.
A spokesman explained it costs the trust around £10,000 a day to help greyhounds like Reece (pictured) who is just one of the animals at the King’s Lynn branch waiting for a forever home.
The four-year-old male has been described as laid back, affectionate and likes nothing more than a snooze after a walk.
“This lovely lad keeps missing out on a home mainly due to his colour and his little grey face but Reece would make a fabulous pet and he can’t wait for his turn to be chosen and taken home,” said a trust spokesman.
He added hundreds of volunteers countrywide spend their Christmas cleaning out kennels, feeding and walking the dogs.
Anyone able to spare a few hours over the festive holiday to help in any way should call Debbie Albins at the Lynn branch on 07944578125.
Cash and donations of food and unwanted duvets and blankets would also be welcomed.
