Supporters, here’s the news you’ve patiently been waiting for ....introducing the MAKANTS FIVE! These beautiful bundles of pure greyhound fun have recently come into our care and have settled in well. Four girls and one boy, they are now 11 weeks old, and have already had their first vaccinations and been chipped.
They are a friendly, outgoing bunch who have been exposed to other breeds as well as greyhounds, and of course to people too.
MORE THAN EVER WE NEED YOUR HELP!
As well as looking for foster carers/adopters for these delightful pups we also need funds to pay for their care - which is in the region of £200 per pup. If you are in a position to help donate you can find Paypal details on our website www.makantsgreyhoundrescue.co.uk. Any donation you are able to make would be gratefully received.
If you thinking of adopting or fostering there are several ways you can get in touch, either via e mail [email protected], or contact our re-homing co-ordinator Sue on 07794463249 or Siobhan on 07960561988.
*Please note: we welcome enquiries from supporters who previously applied to us to foster/adopt – last time we were overwhelmed with applications, many of whom were equally suitable.*
Brindle five year old Chap landed in our care last month and went straight into foster care locally with Jess, Andrew and their hound Snowie. They report that so far he’s been a real pleasure and they also describe him as ‘an all round great dog’ who absolutely loves cuddles!
Chap, who has not raced, has previously lived in a home so is house trained, sits, gives both paws and lies down on command. He loves to have a good play with his toys and in the garden too.
Chap is a little keen when setting out on walks but his foster carers feel this is just excitement as he soon settles down. When out on walks he has not shown any reaction to smaller breeds of dog. We feel that Chap is now more than ready to look for his forever home.
If you would like to find out more about CHAP featured here please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988. Alternatively, you can complete our homing contact form on our website - www.makantsgreyhoundrescue.co.uk - under the 'adopt/foster' tab.
We have more homing news to share with you today and this time it's Griff!
Lovely Griff, who only came to us last month, has been homed with Joanne and Rick in the Chorlton area. He will have Makants hound Maisie (adopted in April) for company too - we did warn them that greyhounds can be addictive!
Griff and Maisie can be seen in this photo on a recent camping holiday - Griff is on the left. :)
Six year old Pal lives locally with his foster carers and female greyhound companion Candy. His foster carers describe Pal as a 'loveable companion who enjoys lots of cuddles in the company of humans'. They say he continues to act like a lap dog and that he is very fond of his teddies and football.
Pal has made great progress whilst in their care and his tolerance of small dogs has improved as he has regularly been exposed to situations where there are other dogs. We would expect anyone thinking of adopting Pal to continue this vital work.
If you would like to find out more about Pal please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988
