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.

Comet is a lovely black and white ex-racing greyhound who is neutered, microchipped and inoculated. He walks nicely on the lead and travels well in the car.

Went to his new home on Thursday 14th May 2015

Comet's Diary
* The branch kennel at the bottom of our garden is where Comet 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.

14th May 2015
We heard today via Facebook a message that said the following::
"Molly and Comet or Max as he is now called, send a big woof. He is asleep at my feet at the moment on his favourite cushion. Sometimes the cushion is in his bed, or like this morning, he dragged it out of his willow basket and then put it back three times, each time taking it outagain. Molly loves him. she used to be like a teenager, come down, have a treat or food, then go back to her bed in our room or on our bed. Now she spends time in the big living room with Max. They walk out so well together and every body stops to talk to them."
23rd June 2015
Max's owner says he is wonderful and they don't go on many walks with out him making new friends. He is going for runs in local fields because there are no livestock, just mowing grass. They took him and Molly to Freshfield Beach ( Formby), and they loved it.
9th August 2015
We received an email today from Max owners saying he is very happy with Molly, their galgo and is making a whole lot of new pals round where they live. All sorts of other dogs and people are interested in him and where he came from.  It's a very good idea to have two greyhounds as pals together, they are so very relaxed at home, then just now and then they gallop along a beach, when we go to visit an elderly uncle of Martin's.
They say everybody knows them, for having the two black and white Greyhounds. Max is such a wonderful gentle chap, Okay, they have to hold him tight, when the local garage cat appears - almost as if he's sticking two fingers up at the dogs. Oh well!
9th November 2015
Apparently Max wasn't too good with the fireworks and hid behind the sofa. His owner did some paper work with Max and Molly in their dog baskets by the side of him. Molly is fine, she's used to hearing them.
6th December 2015
We heard today via Facebook that Max, has now decided the top floor of his home is okay. His new owners took him there for a bath, and now he and Molly sleep in their beds at the bottom of their bed.
