We're excited to share some homing news with you and this time the lucky hound is Thor.
This lovely lad was a favourite of Siobhan and Heather's at kennels and, while they will miss him, they are so pleased he has found his forever home. Thor will live in Kearsley, Bolton with Gaynor and Andy. We wish them all every happiness and hope they will keep in touch.
Our second auction has come to an end, parcels have been posted and several items have already been collected from kennels.
The auction, which was run by a ‘crack team’ of Makants volunteers - Fiona, Wendy and Lydia, turned into a military operation. Over the two weeks they posted over 300 items for sale, received and replied to over 450 messages and posted 30 parcels - bet the Post Office were pleased to see them that day!
We are very grateful to them all, especially to Lydia - being 14 years of age as we expect there are other things she would rather be doing with her time.
Our thanks also go to all auction customers – all 125 of you – for supporting us and the greyhounds in our care.
Stunning four year old Pippa is fairly new to our kennels, having only arrived in the middle of October this year.
Pippa is enjoying her time in kennels, having new experiences every day and taking things in her stride. She walks well on the lead, is a very friendly girl and greets everyone, as Siobhan says, ‘like she has known them all her life!’.
Pippa gets on well with the other greyhounds in kennels but hasn’t had previous experience of other breeds of dogs and can, therefore, sometimes be reactive when she sees smaller dogs when out walking. This behaviour is something that is being worked on each day by our volunteers.
We feel that Pippa has the potential to make a loving pet. If you would like to find out more about Pippa featured here please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988
Here at Makants we are always looking for more volunteers to join us. Wherever your talents lie we're sure there's something you can help us with - be it fundraising, administration, walking the dogs, crafting or fostering - there's something for everyone!
Please get in touch if you want to be involved, the greyhounds will thank you for it.
Stunning three year old Zeek only came into our care last month but has already settled in well.
Initially he was a little shy but soon overcame this and has shown he has a fun side to his personality too. Zeek is easy to walk and does not react to other dogs when out and about.
He is an affectionate boy and Siobhan reports that everyone that meets him ‘falls in love’ with him.... and we think she could just be smitten too! It does sound as though Zeek won’t be single for long, so if you are looking for some love and affection in your life please don’t wait to get in touch. We also feel this lovely boy would benefit from a quiet home.
If you would like to find out more about Zeek or any of the other hounds in our care please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988
With less than four weeks to go until our Christmas Fair we really need your help!
We are asking for donations of items we can use to raise funds for the hounds in our care. Items we are looking for include bottles of wine (or any other type of alcohol), chocolates, toys, gift sets, and, nearer the time, home made cakes.
Any donations can be left at kennels (after 1.30 pm), given to any of our volunteers, or handed in at any of our upcoming fundraising events. With thanks in anticipation for your support.
Six year old Biffo came into our care in early summer this year. Over the past few months he has accompanied our volunteers on several fundraising days, taken part in the Great Global Greyhound Walk and has had some experience of home life.
Biffo is a well behaved dog who loves to play with toys and is very affectionate. He is a pleasure in the house and absolutely loves the company of humans. However, Biffo would probably not want to share his human (you) with another dog - so in this case we are looking for a home for Biffo without any other pets in the household.
However, If you are looking to be worshipped and adored by your very own ‘cow hound’ Biffo is your boy!
If you would like to find out more about Biffo featured here or any of our other hounds in need of re-homing please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988
