We have news of our second homing of the week to share with you today, this time it's CHAP.
This lovely lad, now known as SILAS, has been homed with Kat and Chris and their children Daniel, Annalise, Evie and Harrison in the Bolton area. We wish them all every happiness for their future together. We also send our thanks to our foster carers Jess and Andrew for their help once again.
Thanks to all our supporters who came and took part in our third social dog walk today at a new venue for us - the Crooke Hall Inn in Crooke Village near Standish.
The weather, while being a bit miserable, wasn’t the heavy rain we were expecting - thank goodness!
We send our thanks to: Dean and staff at the Crooke Hall Inn, to Jo and Shelley for organising the walk, to Celine for photos and to all who attended for helping us raise funds for the hounds in our care.
Our Friday Feature this week is three year old FAB.
Fab has only been with us for a couple of weeks but we already know what a lovely friendly girl she is - and is so easy to walk too. She looks forward to her daily walk with the other greyhounds and is respectful towards other dogs she meets when out and about.
Fab does have a good appetite, so much so even her recent spaying operation didn’t put her off her tea! She is settling in well in kennels and appears to be taking the new big wide world in her stride. If you would like to find out more about Fab featured here please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988. Alternatively you can complete a homing enquiry form which can be found on our website www.makantsgreyhoundrescue.co.uk under the 'adopt/foster' tab.
Today we are pleased to give you a ‘pupdate’ on the Makants Five. As you know five bundles of fun came into our care at the beginning of September, the pups are now 15 weeks old. Three of the pups are in foster care/home trial and are thriving, enjoying new experiences, enjoying life and just generally being puppies!
However, we do have two female pups still remaining and are continuing to look for foster homes/adoptive homes for them, preferably in the North West of the UK.
We would need to undertake a home check of the prospective carers premises and are looking for homes where someone is around for the majority of the day. It is essential that we place these pups in a safe loving home environment without delay as they are more than ready to leave kennels and need to be exposed to as many new experiences as possible.
Please only get in touch if you believe you can meet a puppy’s needs and have the agreement of everyone in the home situation as, we are sure you are aware, taking a puppy into your home is a big commitment. Also please bear in mind it may take a little while to get back to you after your initial enquiry as all team members at Makants are volunteers but we will endeavour to reply within a few days.
HOW TO APPLY: In the first instance we would ask anyone interested to please submit a homing form which can be found on our website www.makantsgreyhoundrescue.co.uk under the ‘adopt/foster’ tab. If you wish to discuss your application you can contact Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or alternatively Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988.
