‘Hello my name is Sandra, I came across Makants via an online auction. I'd won an item and came to the kennels to collect the item. I hadn’t been to kennels before and that day I realised I could volunteer to walk the beautiful greyhounds. I thought that it would also enable me to look for a pal for my greyhound girl "Nancy".
After walking a few times I then volunteered to be a home checker in my local area and I also now help out on a Sunday morning with kennel duties too!
It helps being a home checker in another new area as it opens up the potential for even more greyhounds to find their forever homes.
I love my Sunday mornings at kennels, seeing all those happy little faces, wiggly bums and waggy tails when I go in. They have a good stretch in the runs whilst the kennels are fully cleaned, drinking water is changed, their beds are attended to and made sure they are topped up with toys and teddies. Breakfast is then served and the hounds enjoy a nice little nap before the walkers arrive! Talk about a 5* hotel!
I think the rescue is a fabulous place, I’ve found everyone to be very friendly and hardworking, always with the best interests of the hounds at heart. I feel so lucky to be a part of this wonderful rescue’.
**Thank you Sandra for everything you do for Makants!**
