A reminder that our kennel shop is open on Saturday mornings from 10 am to 12.30 pm (M29 8PF). As well as dog coats, leads and collars we do have some gift items available. A recent addition to our range are these hand made felt greyhound decorations kindly made and donated by a volunteer, £5 each or three for £12.
We have some extra special homing news to share with you today. Extra special as the hound in question has been with us for a while, well a year to be precise. We knew that the right home was out there for this boy - we just had to be patient.
We're pleased to say that much loved kennel hound RAVEN has finally found his forever home with Makants volunteer Col and family in Rochdale. We are overjoyed for them and wish them all every happiness for their future together.
We start the week with news of a homing and this time it's Rocco! This lovely lad will live in the Atherton area with Victoria, Paul and their children Jasmine and Isaac. We wish them all every happiness for their future together.
Lucky four year old Cain enjoyed a day out this week!
We send our thanks to Jude, Hayley and children for taking kennel hound Cain for a fun filled day out this week. The whole family enjoyed spending time with him and they tell us that when out and about Cain was ‘a perfect gent on the lead’, walking well with fellow greyhound Donald and greyhound puppy Bob. Cain also enjoyed visiting Haigh Hall later on the same day and met many breeds of dog which was a new experience for him. He coped well with this experience although we feel he may need more exposure to other breeds in order to gain confidence. Cain especially enjoyed travelling in the car on his day out.
Although apprehensive at first Cain soon got used to being in a house and especially enjoyed spending time in the log cabin in the back garden. There were plenty of sniffs to investigate and ‘wee’ mails to answer too! At this stage we don’t think Cain would be cat friendly. If you would like to find out more about Cain 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 questionnaire which can be found on our website: www.makantsgreyhoundrescue.co.uk
We have homing news to share with you today and this time it's XENA.
This lucky girl, who now goes by the name of POPPY, will live in the Bolton area with Sam and James and will have greyhound Teddy for company. We wish them all every happiness for their future together.
Our fundraising team were hard at work at the Pets at Home, Walkden store on Saturday. Many thanks to the store for their hospitality, to everyone who came to see us and to our volunteers: Janet, Pat, Dave A, Kathleen, John, Fiona, Wendy, Lydia and Dave B.
The rather laid back hounds representing Makants today were Kate, Heston, Candy, Jake and Daisy, assisted by foster dog Pal. A great team!
We had a wonderful time at the Haigh Woodland Park Artisan market on Sunday, we really enjoyed our first time there as stallholders. We send our thanks to everyone who came to see us and to those who bought a handmade dog coat made by our team of crafty knitters. It was lovely to see so many adopted Makants hounds with their forever families too
