With easing of lockdown restrictions we have been able to make progress with homing!
But it is still difficult to arrange neuterings - a prerequisite for all homings - so things are necessarily a bit slow.
We know that there are people itching to take a greyhound into their family and can only say - please be patient - everyone's health and safety and the greyhounds' best interests have to be the top priorities.
IT WILL BE WORTH THE WAIT!
If you are thinking of homing a greyhound -
- GIVE KATH A CALL - 07723 027995
You could start the process and be ready to go as soon as we have a greyhound right for you.
Access to the kennels has to be limited. so photos and information are not always available.
JUST FOR NOW WE ASK YOU TO PLEASE BEAR WITH US .....
WE WILL SHOW ON HERE THOSE GREYHOUNDS FOR WHICH WE HAVE PHOTOS
BUT THEY MAY NOT BE READY TO HOME
AND THERE ARE OTHERS WITHOUT PHOTOS WHO ARE READY TO GO!
For the most up to date information and advice

NOW MEET SOME OF OUR GREYHOUNDS !
We usually have around 20 greyhounds waiting for their new life as pets.
All of our greyhounds ready for homing are neutered, microchipped and up to date with their inoculations and parasite treatments; and all are given a leather collar & lead and a muzzle when they leave for their new homes.
A donation of £190 is requested when you home one of our greyhounds
WE WELCOME ALL ENQUIRIES
AND WORK HARD AT 'MATCHMAKING'
- finding the right greyhound to suit individual family circumstances.
Will YOUR HOME be the FOREVER HOME
for one of these greyhounds?
SID - YOU MAY HAVE SEEN OUR SPECIAL WRITE UP ABOUT SID NEEDING A HOME ...
Well - we are thrilled to be able to report that 10 year old Sid now has a home to call his own!
He has gone to live with a greyhound pal and is settling in really well. This happy and enthusiastic lad has very quickly got his feet under the table and is already much loved.
AND HE REALLY IS LAUGHING NOW!
We want to thank Sid's new family; and also all of the other warm and generous people who expressed an interest in his well being or the possibility of taking him into their home. We are grateful and wanted to let everyone know that he is now settled.
And especial thanks to foster dad Chris and his pack for doing such a grand job of preparing Sid for the next step.
