We are pleased to let you know we have received a donation for £434.69 from the Support Adoption for Pets charity. Our volunteer Lynda took kennel hound Moll to the Pets at Home, Leigh store to collect the cheque today.
It's been a year now since kennel hound Patrick had his photoshoot courtesy of our photographer Sue Costello. He still remains in our kennels, a much loved boy with his own fan club, but continues to wait for his forever home.
Patrick has been with us for over two years and although his confidence has improved he still remains wary of new people and certain everyday situations. Patrick would need a very patient adopter who would take things slowly, and at his pace. Any prospective adopters would need to be prepared to make as many visits to kennels as is required, in order to build up a strong relationship with him prior to any re-homing.
If you would like to find out more about Patrick please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988
Little lurcher Suzie is a really sweet girl. She is currently in foster with Makants hound Snowie and foster carers Jess and Andrew. Whilst living with them they have watched Suzie’s confidence grow and she is now starting to come out of her shell.
Suzie has shown she loves to play, both on her own and with other dogs large or small. She is a bundle of fun and does tend to get over excited playing and shows this by barking. Her foster carers are working on trying to tone this down while still letting her enjoy her playtime.
Suzie is fully housetrained and is happy to be left for periods of time during the day. She has bonded well with Snowie so we think she would prefer canine company in her forever home.
If you would like to find out more about Suzie featured here or any of our other hounds please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988

We've had a busy weekend fundraising, in lovely weather for a change!
On Saturday we were at the Boothstown festival and on Sunday at the Friends of Jubilee park Fun Day. We would like to thank everyone for their kind donations and a special thanks all our volunteers - human and hound - for all their hard work.
Five year old Jet arrived in our kennels in May this year. We have found him to be a very friendly boy and an affectionate one too! Apparently if you ask for a ‘kiss’ he will gladly provide one!
His ears appear to move in opposite directions too which makes him all the more endearing. Jet walks well on the lead, does not pull and is happy around the other greys. He is still getting used to the outside world and, while he is fine with bigger dogs, he is still unsure with small dogs. This is something that any prospective adopter would need to be willing to work on.
If you would like to find out more about Jet featured here - or any of our other hounds available for re-homing - please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988
Thanks to Patricia for sending in this lovely photo of adopted Makants hound Bertie (was Benson). Bertie was adopted in April and here he is enjoying a bit of sunshine. Patricia says he is 'full of mischief, extremely loving and has brought so much laughter into our lives'.
We love to hear how our adopted hounds are settling into their new lives.
