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.

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.
please contact Jenny or Stuart

Ozzy - Black Greyhound
Ozzy is a lovely black ex-racing greyhound who was born in November 2012. We have been told he is a real gentleman and will make someone a lovely companion.
Ozzy is neutered, inoculated and microchipped.
Ozzy we have been told is okay with other breeds of dogs, walks nicely on the lead and travels well in a car.





Went to his new home on Sunday 26h April 2015.
Ozzy's Diary
8th April 2015
Ozil arrived this evening and while chatting to his owner/trainer we discovered his pet name was Ozzy, so Ozzy it is. After his owner/trainer left we walked him round the garden to do his toilet then brought him in the house to await Ginny's arrival. Ginny is going to foster Ozzy until we find him his forever home. It took Ozzy all of 5 minutes to settle in the house and when Ginny arrived to collect him she couldn't believe he'd only been here about 15 minutes - he was so chilled out and relaxed.
Everything collected for him and off he went with Ginny to her home where he will be fostered.
9th April 2015
We received an email from Ginny this evening letting us know how Ozzy was getting on. This is what she said:
" What a great dog!
Perhaps he should be called Ozzy The Ox. He is strong, slow, confident and commanding.
He's learning the things he needs to know - stairs,  boundaries,  routines.
He's great with other dogs and hasn't reacted to cats.
He's not greedy or demanding.
Just an all round lovely dog"
12th April 2015
Ginny called round this evening so we could remove Ozzy's neutering stitches, which were now ready to come out. He looked content and well.
26th April 2015
This afternoon Ginny brought Ozzy here in readiness for his new owners arriving. When they arrived he remembered them and happily walked off to their car once all the adoption paperwork was complete. He needed a helping hand getting in the back of the car, but then most do for the first few times until they work out how to do it themselves.
Happily laying in the back of the car they drove off to his new home where we hope he will have a long and happy life with his new family.
