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.

ADOPTING A GREYHOUND

When adopting a greyhound the suggested donation is £150.00 which goes towards neutering, inoculations, upkeep etc. Some people give a little less, while
others want to give more. We are quite flexible with this, and with this we provide:
Martingale Collar, Lead, Muzzle and 4 weeks free cover with the insurance company PetPlan

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.

Chrissie's arrival and a brief history
Click images for a larger view

Chrissie is a beautiful white and fawn greyhound, who was born on the 9th June 2011. Chrissie is Lena's litter sister and she is a loveable girl who enjoys being cuddled. She walks nicely on the lead and travels well in the car.

Chrissie's Diary
* The branch kennel at the bottom of our garden is where Chrissie and the other resident(s) will be for the first day or so until he gets to know the other greyhounds. He has use of our garden and paddock, and once he gets to know the other dogs he will be allowed in the house during the day and all the dogs will then take it in turn to sleep in the house at night, so they become use to sleeping in both the kennel and the house.

18th July 2013

Chrissie was one of four greyhounds who arrived this afternoon. Each one was brought in the garden, given Frontline on the back of their neck near the shoulder blades for fleas, which is normal practice for the branch and put in one of the sections in the kennel. There was a fan in there to help move the air around as it was a very warm day and an insectecutor was hanging from the bar just outside the kennel door to attract any unwanted insects.
Once all four dogs were dealt with we gave them some food. Chrissie liked hers although she didn't eat it all and we left them to settle into their new surroundings while I continued my bed and breakfast work.
23rd July 2013
This afternoon once all the adoption paperwork was complete Chrissie went off with her new owner where we hope she will have a long and happy life.
This won't be the last time we see Chrissie because her new owner is a regular visitor, and no doubt in future her visits will include Chrissie by her side.
