CAN YOU TEMPORARILY FOSTER A GREYHOUND FOR US?
Fosterers are a valuable part of greyhound rescue in that another greyhound is living life away from the kennels and taking the first steps towards getting used to the family way of life. If you live in the South Lakes or the surrounding area and would like to foster a greyhound until we can find him or her a new home.

Jenny's arrival and a brief history

Jenny is a beautiful blue and white ex-racing greyhound who was born on the 4rd August 2005. She weighs 25.4k, is speyed, microchipped, gets on well with other breeds of dogs, loves children, travels well in the car and walks nicely on the lead.

Jenny's Diary
27th October 2011
Stuart collected Jenny along with Hamish this afternoon. She travelled well in the car and once back to our house she had a walk around the garden on the lead to do her toilet, then came in the house to say hello to our greyhounds who were behind the gate in the kitchen. We checked her ear marks and whether or not she was microchipped, which she was and shortly after her new owner arrived to adopt her and take her home with her.
We only saw Jenny for a couple of hours, but in that time we realised she is a lovely, friendly girl who could tell her new owner had some treats in her handbag, because no sooner was the zip undone Jenny's nose was inside looking to see what she could find. When all the adoption paperword was completed we put a lead on her and walked her to her new owner's car. She needed a hand getting into the back of the car, which many often do as they are not used to the amount of space available, but before long she will soon learn to do it herself. When the car door was shut she quickly lay down and off she went to her new home where we hope she will have a long and happy life.
5th July 2012
We heard today that Jenny is fine. Last friday while her owner was at her daughters house in the town her grandson left the door open and Jenny got out. They followed her so far, but she was running then they lost lost sight of her. After searching for a while they decided to go to the vets to get numbers to phone such as the dog pound and the receptionist just stood there laughing. Jenny had made her way to the vets, gone in while the door was open, and was sitting in the waiting room waiting to be seen! Everyone breathed a huge sigh of relief.
