Gull is a very affectionate young grey who arrived at Makants in April 2016. He loves cuddles and gives kisses!
He has been lucky to spend some time recently with another male greyhound and experienced foster parents.
This is what they had to say about him:
'Gull has had his first new experiences of the big wide world while staying with ...us and is taking everything in his stride. He has met big dogs and a couple of little dogs and seems fine with them. Despite the odd accident initially, he's now clean in the house and is slowly learning to ask to go outside. He LOVES squeaky toys and will play fetch! (is this really a greyhound or a collie in disguise?). So far Gull has been left for 3-4 hours in the house with a fellow greyhound for company and has had no issues'.
Is there a space on a sofa out there somewhere for Gull? If you can help please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988.
*Please note: We are looking for a home which Gull could share with another canine companion
Hello supporters, some wonderful news to share this Sunday morning, Kate has been homed!
As you may remember Kate had an accident in kennels which required intensive treatment. Her immediate care was undertaken by Siobhan and by Danielle and her family, and with their help Kate was soon on the road to recovery.
Kate then went to recuperate with Wendy, Martin and their daughter Penny. She has recovered so well and fitted in with their family, so that's where she's staying!
We are very pleased for her and she will now share her life with canine companion Shankley. Be happy Kate, we're sure you will be!
Oscar is a very calm boy and so laid back Siobhan has never heard him bark! He walks well without pulling on the lead and gets on well with the other dogs in kennels.
Oscar has been a house guest for two of our volunteers and one volunteer reported that
'he wasn't phased by noises from the TV or washing machine, which is unusual as he hasn't been in a house before. He slept downstairs on his own with no problem and let me know when he wanted to go out'.
In fact both volunteers have said he was a pleasure to have in the house. Praise indeed Oscar, well done!
It really sounds like Oscar now needs to be in his forever home, he has so much to offer.
If you would like to find out more about Oscar or any of the dogs in kennels/foster please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988
Back in March lots of you lovely people nominated us to receive some free food from Burgess Pet care.
Well, I'm pleased to say that, after going through a short listing process and an official visit, we were finally awarded a large amount of free food!
Two weeks ago the Burgess Pet Care team paid a visit to kennels loaded up with the food. We're very grateful to Burgess for their generosity and also to our walking volunteers who unloaded it that day!
Here's a photo of Siobhan with kennel hound Brin and foster hound D'jango - you can also see our hard working volunteers in the background. Great work Makants team!
This weekend we had two fundraising events - thank you to volunteers, hounds and everyone we spoke to.
Dam House St. George's Day Event
Luckily the weather was kind to us at the Dam House St. George's Day Event, we spoke to some lovely people and managed to raise £141.65.
Thanks to our volunteers - Marion, Angela, Pat, Adi, Dave and Phil. Also thanks to hounds in attendance - new boy Butch on his first collection, Pedro and Charlie. We also had visits from some lovely adopted/fostered hounds - Bruno, Neil, Larry, Ruby, Shadow and Joe junior.
Well done hounds and humans!
Manchester Vegan Festival
Spreading the word about greyhounds at the Vegan Festival in Manchester today.
The event was really busy and it was lovely to talk to so many people about our rescue, and about greyhounds in general.
Many thanks to our volunteers - Denise and her Mum, Linda, Sue C, Jo, Maria and Gina. Great work team!
