Many thanks to everyone who took part in our recent 'Love Is' photographic competition. The winning photo was submitted by Julie and shows her husband Ian cuddled up with their recently adopted hound Lizzie. We think you will agree the photo has captured the wonderful loving bond between human and hound very clearly.
Five lovely lads looking for someone special to come into their lives this Valentine's day. These hounds have the potential to be fantastic pets but just need that extra bit of help to get there. Please get in touch for more information.
Our fundraising team were at Pets at Home, Middlebrook, Horwich today. Many thanks to the store for their hospitality and to everyone who took the time to come and see us.
Thanks must also go to our volunteers today - Angela, Marley, Janet, Pat, Rose,Fiona, Iris, Elizabeth, Lynda and Nicola. Kennel hounds respresenting Makants were Sparky and Oscar who both did incredibly well, ably assisted by foster hound Kirsty and adopted hounds Kate and Albie. What a fab fundraising team!
Our second social dog walk takes place on Sunday 25th March, setting off from the Balcarres Arms, Aspull. We are looking forward to returning to this dog friendly and welcoming venue and hope you can join us. More details can be found on the attached poster and in the 'events' section of our facebook page.
*Please note car parking is very limited near to the Balcarres Arms and that, for this walk, we insist on sighthounds only* Thank you.
4 year old black lad Jock arrived in kennels in early January. Since then we have spent time getting to know him and found him to be a friendly lad who absolutely adores humans.
Jock has been lucky to have spent some weekends away from kennels in a home environment where he settled well. He was clean in the house and the usual household noises – vacuum cleaner, washing machine – did not spook him at all. He was very friendly and respectful with the resident children and a pleasure to have as a house guest.
Jock gets on well with the other kennel greyhounds when out on daily walks but is very wary and can be reactive towards other breeds of dog. He seems to have very limited experience of the outside world and other types of dogs but this is something we are working on.
Jock would need to be the only dog in the house or could possibly live with a female greyhound. Jock has a lot of love to give and this friendly lad would worship and adore any prospective adopter! If you would like to find out more about Jock 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
Just for fun we are running a Makants Valentine's photo competition!
The theme is 'Love is' and we are inviting you to e mail in one photo of your SIGHTHOUND(S) which conveys this theme. There can be a human in the photo too but the hound(s) must belong to the sighthound family.
Entry into the competition is a two step process:
Step one: entry fee is £2.00 per photo (only one entry per household) and this is to be paid by Paypal which can be found on our website: www.makantsgreyhoundrescue.co.uk
Note: the winning photo will be chosen by an independent judge. The prize will be a Makants bandana and collar tassles of hound owners choice, with the winning photo appearing on our facebook page and website on Valentine's day.
