We send our thanks to the Pets at Home, Horwich store today.Recently we were lucky to receive the donations left in an overflowing charity bin at the store. Many thanks to everyone who donated on behalf of the hounds in our care.
upporters, we are already thinking ahead to our Christmas Fair and hope you can help us make it the best ever. We are looking for donations for our tombolas, in particular bottles of anything - wine, water, pop etc, also wine gift bags and chocolates. Any items can be handed in at walking times at kennels (1.15-2.30 weekdays and 10.15-12.30 weekends) With thanks in advance for your help.
Some of our volunteers enjoyed their 'five minutes of fame' at the weekend thanks to student journalist Ben and film student Elanya.
The Salford Uni students contacted us to make a film about the work we do at kennels as part of their studies. After spending time at kennels filming they then headed down to meet the fundraising team at the Pets at Home Walkden store.
It was a great experience for everyone involved and both Ben and Elanya genuinely seemed to enjoy meeting the dogs and volunteers. We look forward to seeing the finished film and send our thanks to them both for spending time with us.
A reminder our kennels shop is OPEN every Saturday morning 10 am - 12.30 pm. We're at Makants Farm, Mort Lane, Tyldesley M29 8PF. We have coats for EVERY SIZE of dog, martingale collars and leads, and many hand made items ideal for gifts.
You are welcome to bring your dog along to 'try before you buy'.
Gorgeous Zane arrived with us late last month. He has already settled well in kennels, taking the changes to his life in his stride. He is proving to be an affectionate boy who, according to Siobhan, loves to give kisses!
Zane was lucky to have a weekend sleepover with volunteer Louise recently. He quickly made a bee line for the settee and made himself comfy and was happy to receive as much fuss and cuddles as was possible! Zane was clean in the house letting Louise know when he needed to go out.
Zane walks well on the lead but does find other dogs a bit too interesting at the moment. We hope with more training and exposure to other breeds he will soon settle down.
Overall Louise described Zane as a ‘big softy’.
If you would like to find out more about Zane please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988. Alternatively you can complete our short homing questionnaire on our website www.makantsgreyhoundrescue.co.uk
