Sweet boy Hilly arrived with us in April this year and settled in quickly. He’s a medium sized friendly lad who loves his toys. He gets on well with the other greyhounds and enjoys spending time in their company, however he isn’t as confident with smaller breeds.
Hilly, with his big puppy dog eyes, has a puppy type personality to match and spends time looking in wonder at everything going on around him. He is equally fascinated whether that be a bike in the distance or a nearby game of football. He has been on trips out with our volunteers and loved travelling in the car.
An affectionate boy, he really loves the attention and has been a willing model for our range of dog coats, this boy will do anything for a cuddle! If you would like to find out more about Hilly featured here 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
We wondering if any of our supporters are able to donate items for our fundraising tombola? We would also appreciate donations of small gifts ideal for our children's lucky dip. Any items would be gratefully received and can be left at kennels during our walking times which are 1.15 - 3 pm weekdays and 10.15 -12.30 pm weekends. With thanks in anticipation
We had a fabulous day at the Dogs Trust event in Bury on Sunday. Thanks to everyone who supported the event, especially those of you who visited our stall. We were pleased to have visit from adopted Makants hound Dougie, a hound fondly remembered by all our walkers.
Today we send out a very special 'Thank You' to a very special lady, Anne Cain.
Anne recently celebrated a milestone birthday and rather than accept gifts she asked friends and family to donate to our rescue. Siobhan met Anne at the weekend and was amazed to be handed £400. We send our grateful thanks to Anne and all her friends and family, we hope you all had a great evening celebrating.
We start the week with news of a homing and this time it’s extra special!
Kennel hounds Syd and Emma are being homed together to live with Deborah and her parents in Brockhall Village, Blackburn.
Syd, who was born with just one eye, suffered a vicious attack from an off lead dog not long after he arrived, whilst on a walk with our volunteers. We are grateful to our experienced quick thinking volunteers, Dave and Janet, who took quick action and, despite sustaining some nasty injuries, we’re pleased to say Syd is recovering well. Syd’s companion in kennels, Emma has been instrumental in his rehabilitation helping him rebuild his confidence, and it’s therefore wonderful news that they are being homed together.
We really are so happy for them and send our best wishes to the whole family for their future. We look forward to regular updates.
