Dogs welcome, large or small, one or more. A Greyhound haven!

The voluntary work Jenny and Stuart started in July 2004 is a memorial to their darling Penny. Without her coming into their lives none of this would have happened.

Please ring for an appointment to come and see the greyhounds and have a chat. You are most welcome, but as we run a bed and breakfast it is essential you ring and arrange a date and time to visit.

Become a friend and view Our Profile to see what's happening at the branch and to follow some of our ex-foster greyhounds.

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.

Guinness came in as a stray and is a handsome black ex-racing greyhound who walks nicely on the lead and travels well in a car.

Went to his new home on Friday 4th May 2012.

Guinness's Diary
29th March 2012
This morning Guinness went to the vets having arrived here as a stray last night. He weighed in at 31.7k, was given his first inoculation and because his teeth and breath was so bad in the afternoon he had a dental. Most teeth removed were the large back ones, and many of the cavities needed stitching, Around 7.15pm Stuart went in for him and brought him home. He was still very wobbly and not sure what was going on so we shut our greyhounds behind the kitchen gate to give him peace, and he lay on a dog bed in front of the kitchen fire to sleep it off. His mouth didn't bleed as much as we'd expected and he seemed to enjoy having a cuddle during his waking periods. At one point he stood to open his bowels, but was too wobbly to move so I simply pushed a newspaper under him and caught it. Then he lay down and slept again. A little later I walked him round the garden to give him fresh air and because he wanted to 'walk off' the anaesthetic.
4th April 2012
This afternoon Guinness returned to the vet for a check up following his dental and all was healing well.
4th May 2012
This morning Guinness went off with his new owners to enjoy family life with them, their dog and cat . Guinness has had a bit of a rough time so we hope he will have a long and happy life with his new family who fell in love with him the moment they saw him.

Jack spent the day on the beach yesterday with the little brown companion he now lives with. He wasn't too sure what to make of it, but once he was enticed in he loved it and didn't want to come out, bless him!
30th June 2012
Heard today that Jack is doing great, a lot leaner than when he arrived, but his new owners are not worried because he's eating well, and they believe its all the exercise he is getting - Jack does charge round the fields looking for rabbits!
His coat is a lot better than it was, and he has his winter jacket now ready for winter walks - he looks very smart!
17th December 2013
Heard via Facebook that Jack is doing great, Jack doesn't play much but does love running around.
19th April 2014
Jack's owners emailed to let us know that he's doing really well. Since they adopted him he always looked a bit 'ropey' with really bad skin despite been fed good dog food. Anyway, they have recently switched both dogs to the raw meat diet, and what a difference. Within the first week Jack's skin has started to gleam and his teeth and breath are loads better. They think they will be sticking with this diet now.
